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

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie - But Flawed Audio! February 4, 2000
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars How to make a gem without violence! November 30, 1999
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie ruined by Previews Again February 1, 2000
By Alan H
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE!!! October 10, 2005
Format:DVD
After publicizing this release as a 2 disc set, disney finally changed its mind and released it as a barebones single disc. Those who were waiting to get all those great behind the scenes stuff available previously on "tarzan 2 disc collector's edition" will be thoroughly disappointed with this release.

However, those who missed out on previous 2 disc collector's edition and want to own tarzan on a two disc set, still have the option of buying it from amazon.co.uk, where it has been released as a 2-disc special edition with all those behind the scenes stuff from previous collector's edition. Just make sure you have a multi-region dvd player which plays discs from all regions.

Do not buy this unless you just want to own the film. Better still search for the old collector's edition. It will be worth all the money spent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD Features, Annoying Forced Previews February 1, 2000
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad disk avoid at all cost! February 5, 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Well if the bad audio track was bad enough, being FORCED to watch the previews EVERYTIME you want to watch the movie is. Disney really blew this one. Maybe they can get their act together for the Collector Edition!

5.0 out of 5 stars From Idianapolis.. Great Movie November 20, 1999
By A Customer
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Good movie - Bad DVD - Buy the tape February 23, 2000
Format:DVD
Regardless of what you may think of the movie (I enjoyed it), this DVD does not belong in anyone's collection. Disney has greatly abused the ability to lock-out control of the DVD player during the beginning of the disk, *forcing* you to sit through several previews and an ad. Shame! Ordinarily I'm a big fan of previews, and I don't even mind ads, but keep them in the bonus section where they belong! I won't buy another Disney movie on DVD while this disrespectful practice continues. I'm surprised more people didn't mention it here - I can only assume you've been watching the tape.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MOST favorite of my 6 year old girl!
She went through a Tarzan phase where she wanted to watch this video again and again. I think it's very well done and pleasant for adult viewing.
