From Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures comes the action adventure 'The Legend of Tarzan,' starring Alexander Skarsgard (HBO's 'True Blood') as the legendary character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
The film also stars Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson ('Pulp Fiction,' the 'Captain America' films), Margot Robbie ('The Wolf of Wall Street'), Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou ('Blood Diamond,' 'Gladiator'), Oscar nominee John Hurt ('The Elephant Man,' the 'Harry Potter' films), with Oscar winner Jim Broadbent ('Iris'), and two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz ('Inglourious Basterds,' 'Django Unchained').
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgard) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
David Yates directed 'The Legend of Tarzan' from a screenplay by Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer, story by Brewer and Cozad based on the Tarzan stories created by Burroughs. Legendary producer Jerry Weintraub ('Behind the Candelabra,' the 'Ocean's' trilogy) produced the film, together with David Barron (the 'Harry Potter' films, 'Cinderella'), Alan Riche ('Southpaw') and Tony Ludwig ('Starsky & Hutch'). Susan Ekins, Nikolas Korda, Keith Goldberg, David Yates, Mike Richardson and Bruce Berman served as executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Henry Braham ('The Golden Compass'), Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig ('Dangerous Liaisons,' 'The English Patient,' the 'Harry Potter' films), editor Mark Day ('Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Parts 1 & 2'), and Oscar-nominated costume designer Ruth Myers ('Emma,' 'Unknown'). 'The Legend of Tarzan' was shot at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden, as well as on location around the UK.

I loved this take on the movie. I liked that they didn't try and burden you with tons of origin story-line. They had brief flashbacks of Tarzan's origin, but they assumed you knew the origin story so they focused more on telling the present story at hand.
I was surprised by how perfect Alexander Skarsgard played Tarzan. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted from Tarzan or what I expected. But I was impressed that Tarzan was not this extremely talky, flashy character. He had very few lines and more then anything he just had this presence that was un-deniable when he was on screen. You could feel that he was something more then human, but that he was also not invincible. I was impressed by the connection Tarzan and Jane had. Though they were not in many scenes together, you could feel their strong connection through out the film. I loved Margot Robbie as Jane. She was pretty and earthy, a very strong independent character that felt real, and a good match for Tarzan.
I thought the cinematography was very beautiful and impressive. The score was equally lovely. The movie I felt was a good mix of action and story with wonderful actors that did a really good job playing their characters.
I don't know why the critics were so harsh on this movie, because I was pleasantly surprised by how much I really loved it! If you are at all someone that finds the story of Tarzan intriguing then you will enjoy this new take on it.
The Legend of Tarzan is unique in that it's not an origin story. While the origins of Tarzan are explored in a few flashback scenes (similar to Batman Begins), the movie is really about John Clayton, Lord of Greystoke (aka Tarzan's real name and title). Tarzan has been living in England with Jane for the past few years and has left the jungle behind him, but when he is asked to help expose a slavery ring in the Congo, he is drawn back to Africa.
Harry Potter director, David Yates, manages to breathe new life into Tarzan thanks to the modern technological wizardry that CGI brings. The vast majority of this movie was shot on sets in England, with much of the animals and African environments created on a computer. This sells the reality of the story, much in the same way that The Jungle Book did a few months back. Of course, what really makes this movie resonant is not the craft on display, but the story between Tarzan and Jane.
Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie portray Tarzan and Jane, and they actually make you care about these two characters. Skarsgard plays Tarzan as a stoic gentleman trying not to be the animal he was raised to be, while Robbie portrays the feistiest Jane you've ever seen. Then there's the charisma and humor of Samuel L. Jackson as real-life historical figure, Dr. George Washington Williams, who joins Tarzan on his quest to save the Congo. Couple that with Christoph Waltz being Christoph Waltz as the bad guy, Leon Rom, and you've got a fun, emotionally resonant pulp adventure that Tarzan author, Edgar Rice Burroughs, would most likely be proud of.
With that said, don't listen to the critics. Your enjoyment of The Legend of Tarzan all relies on how much you enjoy the idea of Tarzan in general. If you think Tarzan is hokey, then this movie probably isn't for you, but keep in mind there is nothing wrong with the movie itself. The script is good, the movie is well directed, the cinematography and musical score are beautiful, and there are many well choreographed action sequences.
Bottom line, if you have an affinity for the character, The Legend of Tarzan is the Tarzan movie you've been looking for.
Both the general audience as well as the Tarzan fanbase have spoken loudly, and THE LEGEND OF TARZAN is OUTSTANDING! Finally, a film that does justice to the original character of Tarzan, as written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Finally, a film that offers truly inspiring heroes (male and female) for this generation so sorely starved of positive role models. This is a TRUE adventure, with thrills from beginning to end. Even if you can't do what they accomplish on film, you'll walk out of the theater with the incredible score playing in your head, wanting to be like these characters. Maybe you'll take a piece of them home; maybe you'll embody them at the office the next day. Maybe you'll become that next person willing to face impossible challenges head on, without fear, and even with a smile on your face.
THE LEGEND OF TARZAN triumphs on all fronts. We need movies like this again. We need HEROES like this again. Show some support and see it again and again.
