Amazing animation, the next generation motion capture and rendering with a nod to the old school story. Yes it does have all the classic lines in the movie. I think Kellan Lutz has found his niche. I am amazed seeing his performances in "real" movies (where I found them flat and inexpressive) that in an animated state where every inch of your facial expressions and body movement is captured and rendered was done so well. The only reason I did not give this movie 5 stars is the fact the ending fell a little flat for me. Compared to the rest of the movie it seemed rushed to be finished.

The new school twists of Greystoke being a business man rather than a lord, and looking for alternate forms of energy rather than gold give the story a current feel. On this trip he takes his family deep into the jungle of Africa. In an escape gone wrong the young heir to the Greystoke Empire is left in the wood with a grieving mother ape to try and survive as best as he can. The rest is history.

I wife hate animated movies, but the animation is so good and realistic in this one that she loved it. Also she said she like the fact that the apes and Tarzan did not "talk" to each other in English but their one apish language of grunts and oh oh, and gestures. A very good movie with a bit of a rushed ending stopping it from being perfect.

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.

I must admit, that having caught the trailer for this movie on Youtube last year, I wasn't at all sure about the look of this new CGI Tarzan. A bit too 'surfer-dude' for my liking, but having now watched the full movie I can honestly say "Excellent Dude!" I've been saying for ages that with modern CGI they could make a really terrific Tarzan movie, and here we have it. I didn't imagine that they would animate all the human characters too, but yes it really worked for me. As for the humans, imagine if Gerry Anderson had progressed from his Thunderbird/Captain Scarlet puppets and was now making CGI animated movies. The motion-capture is superb and within minutes you are totally immersed into this fantastical adventure. The jungle and landscapes are to die for, and do not suffer from any comparison with the 'Avatar' movie. I do hope they continue to make more adventures of this new animated Tarzan. I'm hooked!

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 is a German animated film and a pretty good one It's about Tarzan of course and they do a good job with the story. The animation is of course not as great as a Hollywood film but it's not bad at all. The 3d blu ray looks great and this was filmed in 3d so it's a very good 3d experience. if you collect 3d films then this one is worth owning for sure. And if you like Tarzan then you will like this story as well. This is much more lush than anything Germany has ever put out and that's a good thing. The blu ray has a 2d version as well which cannot compare to the 3d one in depth and power.
