A NEW THREAT AWAITS.
In the late 19th century, an English nobleman (Alexander Skarsgård) returns to the Congo that he left behind a long time ago on a mission to investigate suspected Belgian slave trade. Tarzan has returned to the big screen many times before, and in different shapes; this 3D adventure doesn’t change the basic formula too much, although it turns its hero more decisively into a fighter against the colonization of Africa. Skarsgård has the right look for the part and is aided by advanced visual effects that bring life to the jungle and all its creatures. Exciting action scenes, but it doesn’t translate to the movie as a whole.
