A man, who has spent his whole life being raised by gorillas, must discover who he is and where he belongs when humans visit the jungle where he lives.

In perhaps one of the most underappreciated Disney films of the 90's, viewers are given an insight into the life of a man who must question who and what he is in the face of danger and humanity. The plot is a very romantic tale about the human spirit and has a very intriguing point of view upon humans, who are again in the darkness as villains in this Disney picture.

Tarzan embodies the good nature about the human spirit with a heroic and loyal ideology towards the lives of others, but the humans who come to investigate the gorillas such as Clayton are the epitome of evil, and through the use of good vs evil and loyalty does the plot excel as a sharp and sentimental story about finding who you truly are.

Humour is thrown in as good measure with the very enjoyable Jane, Terk and Tantor who all have their moments in this lovable tale.

Though the humour is frequently used throughout, this is one of the most serious Disney films of recent years, and that is shown through the use of man against animal, and the inhuman nature of the humans, a very serious issue and one particular shot towards the end when the gorillas are all looking down, all sitting peacefully in their trees, all quiet and minding their own business, shows them as they are, extremely beautiful animals who are being disturbed by a group of violent money thirsty selfish humans.

Its sad that there aren't many 2D animations being made now, as classics such as these look so brilliant and are basic, but with technology being so advanced, it is hard to see a way back into this brilliant format.

While not up to the level of sophistication of the best Pixar films, or even the very best of Disney, this has an admirable sense of humor, and an ability to be quite touching at times (if occasionally sappy). It also has some surprisingly dark and violent moments that might put it off limits to younger kids, who in other ways are its perfect audience.

This takes the basic Tarzan story and focuses mainly on Tarzan's need and ability to be accepted by the Gorilla clan he is adopted into, offering slightly obvious but always valuable lessons in accepting those who look or act different. It also has a spunky and even sexy Jane – an explorer who comes to Africa with her scientist father, and (of course) an evil guide looking to capture and enslave the apes. Jane's romance with Tarzan is funny, playful and sometimes moving.

The animation is energetic, kinetic and fun, and I found myself nicely caught up in the story. Unlike some animated features, I
actually wasn't sure exactly how things would work themselves out. I also appreciated that Phil Collins' songs, which tended to
lyrically hit the nail a little too hard on the head, were few and far between. If they weren't great, they didn't really damage the film either.

It sounds like I'm damning this with faint praise, but the bottom line is I had a good time. I smiled, I chuckled, and I got choked up. When ANY film – animated or not - can do all three for me, I consider that a solid victory.

Disney animation has been making progress with leaps and bounds since The Little Mermaid, but the stories have been stuck in a rut for some time now. Disney made a wise move in taking the Tarzan novels as the base for this feature - we all grew up with the character, the stories are simple but compelling and animation allowed Disney to construct a picture far beyond the limits of human actors.
Disney put their best animators on to the job and they certainly worked miracles with the source. Their Tarzan is far closer to the character in the book - moving and acting like an animal, yet somehow human underneath. Disney have probably set themselves an impossible target in beating Tarzan's animation. Drawing a person is HARD, drawing one at 25 frames a second is nearly impossible, drawing a near naked man fighting a spotted leopard in and out of shadows is just breathtaking.
Much has been made of the vaunted use of computer graphics to build the Deep Canvas backgrounds - allowing the characters to move through the jungle in 3D. It deserves every accolade - the effect is flawless, never once looking like CGI but allowing the animators to have fun with the potential in their story.
The vocal talent is equally well sourced with Minnie Driver's Jane coming across as a far more interesting female character than any recent Disney woman. The 'Tarzan, Jane' sequence is a delight and works just as well as the classic scene between Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan all those years ago. And why has no one ever cast Brian Blessed in an animation before - he plays the villain like he was doing panto with great relish, although why none of the characters catch on he's a villain until much later is a mystery.

Being somebody who buys all the Disney releases as and when they come out, it was a foregone conclusion that I would get this one too. It has to be one of the greatest ever made. The extra disc, although informative, did not give much away and could perhaps have done more. One of the best things about this movie has to be the music. Phil Collins really exceeded himself on this one with superb lyrics and excellent jungle-like rythmns, the best example of which has to be "Trashin the camp".
All in all a good buy, well worth it.
