Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

After viewing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote to Walt Disney about adapting his novel of an ape-man into a feature animated cartoon. Sixtysome years later, the tale is finally told with brilliant design work that looks unlike any previous animated film. The story is a natural for Disney since the themes of misunderstood central figures have been at the heart of its recent hits. Disney's Tarzan doesn't wander far from the familiar story of a shipwrecked baby who is brought up by apes in Africa. What gives the film its zing is its clever use of music (the songs are sung by Phil Collins himself rather than onscreen characters) and the remarkable animation. Deep Canvas, a 3-D technology, was developed for the film, creating a jungle that comes alive as Tarzan swings through the trees, often looking like a modern skateboarder racing down giant tree limbs. The usual foray of sidekicks, including a rambunctious ape voiced by Rosie O'Donnell, should keep the little ones aptly entertained. The two lead voices, Tony Goldwyn as Tarzan and Minnie Driver as Jane, are inspired choices. Their chemistry helps the story through the weakest points (the last third) and makes Tarzan's initial connection with all things human (including Jane) delicious entertainment. Disney still is not taking risks in its animated films, but as cookie-cutter entertainment, Tarzan makes a pretty good treat. (Ages 5 and up) --Doug Thomas

A great Disney film with some fun characters and a good story.

This animated film combines all of Disney's strengths: beautiful art, involving characters, and masterful, fluid storytelling.

Tarzan is yummy and easy to fall in love with...just like all the other movie Tarzan's.

Format: Blu-ray
One of the benefits of belonging to the Disney Movie Club, is the ability to get movies before their intended release dates. I just got Tarzan blu ray in the mail this morning, and I wasn't expecting more than the movie and the few paltry extras listed on the packaging. Well imagine my surprise when I popped the disc in and found that it apparently includes all of the material from the long out of print 2 DVD set from years ago!! Someone can check me on this, as I no longer own that set, but this seems to be everything I remember. With this blu ray release you get an improved picture with beautiful colors and clear animation lines, a robust DTS 5.1 soundtrack, and all of these extras.

The movie is great, I like it at home as much as I did in the theater, BUT...There appears to be a glitch with the sound. The front left and rear right audio channel is SWITCHED. Disney is aware of this problem (on 1.5 million disks) and isn't doing ANYTHING about it!

Format: DVD
Technically, this movie is perfect. Great songs, beautifully designed scenarios, endearable funny characters and a strong feeling of nostalgia for movies that aim to a higher message. Regretfully, whoever is a parent these days is having a lot of trouble to explain the violence shown in cartoons to their sons. Moreover, it's hard to endorse any t.v. cartoons other than Pinky and the Brain or history related ones. Tarzan demonstrates that there is such thing such as a Family Film and that you can create visually stunning gems as this movie and, still, send a message other than gross scenes or blood and guts spilled all over. Thank you, Disney.

Format: VHS Tape
I have to say that the person from Chicago is way to analytical! This is a childrens movie without a doubt.. Take it from a mother that is very protective of the tv programs that her children watch.. This was very animated and there was no gross violence that all the new cartoons these days have in it.. It was a love story, a frienship story, a happy and a sad story. As an adult, I loved it and highly reccomend it for you and your children. It is something that you can sit down as a family and enjoy together.. Try not to analyze this movie, just enjoy it, it's great!

Format: DVD
The Tarzan DVD has a nice Storybook reading feature and some other bonuses, but also has an extremely RUDE feature: When you first start the DVD, Disney shows you 3 minutes of previews before launching the main menu. No fastforwarding or skipping allowed! What a dumb way to cheapen an otherwise great product.

Format: DVD
Tarzan is yet another wonderful animated masterpiece from our friends at Disney. It has one of the most memorable soundtracks in recent history (thanks to the wonderful work of Phil Collins).
This wonderful family entertainment now available on DVD is severely tainted by a trend Disney started on their VHS format, and have now extended to the DVD format. What I speak of is previews at the beginning of the movie. This DVD has over 5 minutes of previews at the beginning before you get to the DVD menu which allows you to start the movie... Because of the way they have done this (as part of the Title sequence) you cannot skip to the menu, you have to live through them (luckily fast forward still works).
My complaint, coming from a household with small children (together with over 90% of the purchasers of this DVD) they really hate having to sit through the preview to watch their movie. (Two year olds are expecially prone to screaming until the movie starts...).
I can only hope that they will reconsider this poor trend, and rely upon other medium to sell their future releases.

It was my first time to watch the Disney-rendition of this movie. Overall, it was fun and exciting to watch; especially recommended for kids...just don't encourage them to go near a gorilla, though. The video technicals were as awesome as I expect them to be (two thumbs up!). Somebody in the recording studio made a sloppy sound recording on the DVD, though: (a) No sub-woofer recording (WATCHOUT, it's only 5.0 and NOT 5.1) (b) Some left and right sounds were mixed-up. I'd recommend this only for the curious and not for the serious DVD collectors. Otherwise, just rent it.
