This a review of the film only..After hearing all the negative stuff about this i was pleasantly surprised.. my daughter of 9 really wanted to see this , the animation is my view was overall above average considering everything these days is compared to Pixar/ Disney and Dreamworks, the jungle, creatures and water effects were fantastic, specially the Chameleon and Crocodile..i guess where it lets the animation slip is in the human characters although i think Tarzan himself looked fine and the later adult Jane..i disagree with other reviewer, i thought she was not created as pretty Barbie doll..no hour glass figure there and quite Tomboyish..yes of course Tarzan had to rescue her everytime, thats what tarzan does. The other human characters kinda made me think of The Sims tho, bit odd looking and vacant..voice work was adequate and actually like that they did not use big famous voices which i always feel is like a ' Spot the Actor' game.
Storyline is a bit hokey but different and i loved the use of music..especially Coldplay's Paradise which was sadly missing in Life of Pi after hearing it in that trailer but it worked really well here..i enjoyed the romance between Tarzan and Jane as that is also a big part of what Tarzan is for me, a romance..although telling him she loves him after a few hours lost together is a bit much lol.
One last thumbs up for the Gorilla animation and not having cartoon like apes or silly sidekick jokey apes, the roars and fights can be quite brutal sounding..another point for having that more serious feel to the film and not loaded with burp and fart jokes...this gives the film more touching scenes between mother ape and Tarzan.
So don't go expecting to be blown away but hopefully and hour and half pleasing entertainment.

Firstly I have to say that the animation is spectacular.
I appreciate it that they had to update the story, so Burroughs fans dont expect a from book to movie theme.
If you compare this to the Disney film, which you shouldnt, it is its equal, the cgi is stunning.And no Phil Collins, which warrants a star in itself.Some reviewers have commented on the narration, but I think to move the story along, it was necessary.It has some good comedy moments and the transition from the young Tarzan to the mature is beautifully done.At 1hr 35 the film move along at a good pace, entertaining for young and old alike, and certainly better than the 3 stars it seems to be getting.Up there with Disney Pixar.The basic stoyline is known by most people so no need to comment on this, only that this is a good film overall.

Format: DVD
The film starts out with a meteor destroying the dinosaurs and in 20 minutes takes us to Tarzan with the apes. Jane enters the picture shorty thereafter. It seems this meteor has some sort of power or energy. It also has it own ecosystem unique to the rest of the planet. Jane is with the bad guys who want to take over meteor land. They want to kill Tarzan, because he is a Greystoke. Tarzan saves Jane's life ad infinitum until she falls in love and makes this into a a young girl chick flick with our Barbie doll unable to fend for herself, relying on the big muscled man for everything.

I liked the idea of combining Tarzan with a new animated world. The problem is that they didn't do enough mindless new world, new life animation. I hate to say this, but they spent too much time developing the story, making sure to include every Tarzan nuance. Kellan Lutz as the voice of Tarzan didn't make it and where was his hand when he said, "You Jane?"

There was too much narration in the first 20 minutes of the film that wasn't needed. The voice was annoying too.

After reading the negative reviews about this film on Amazon I nearly didn't purchase this film, but so glad I did, People seem to comparing this version to the Disney version.
Firstly it isn't a disney film so don't expect it to be the same.
I enjoy the story of Tarzan and how he was brought up living amongst the Apes until he meets his Jane, great version of the film, great animation, and great narration at the beginning of the film too explaining the story as it starts. I will definitely watch this again and would definitely recommend to children and adults, as long as your not expecting the characters from Disney and Phil Collins to start singing halfway through, just enjoy it for what it is, you won't be disappointed :-)

This film is very entertaining, good story line, good concept bringing it into the modern era, graphics are very good, but there's always a but, it's not " Tarzan ".
Why has he turned American ???
The closest to the books is "Greystoke the Legend of Tarzan", but why oh why can't the books be brought to the big screen.
Enjoy the film for what it is but it isn't " Tarzan ".

Seriously only for kids, most modern animations can be watched and enjoyed by adults, with the occasional adult reference or joke, I'm not sure what this film was trying to do, but it certainly got lost in it's own plot
