THE LEGEND OF TARZAN

Tarzan, having acclimated to life in London, is called back to his former home in the jungle to investigate the activities at a mining encampment. —IMDB

The premise of the story is reasonable. But the focus is very much on the visuals which are stunning, although at times, look a bit too CGI-ish. Margot Robbie (as Jane) provides the best performance. Alexander SkarsgĂ„rd (as Tarzan) had the same look on his face throughout the whole movie. Christoph Waltz, who plays the baddie, was pretty good. It does have the feel of an old-style adventure movie which is likeable. Most stunning are the animals, especially the silverback gorillas who absolutely steal the scenes they’re in. They were made especially for this movie. Overall, it’s a pretty bland and predictable story. Given that the visuals are so central to the movie, worth a look in 3D.
