Star Cast: Alexander Skarsgard, Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, Djimon Hounsou, Jim Broadbent, Christoph Waltz
Directed by: David Yates
Genre: Drama/Triller
Duration: 1 hour 51 minutes

David Yates, the award-winning director with, among others, four Harry Potter films behind him, makes The Legend of Tarzan soar with adventure as much as it bristles with tension, makes us care as much for king-size characters as unknown African villagers, and most of all, gives us a believable reason to revisit the tale of the man raised by apes. The Legend Of Tarzan is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful films you’re likely to see this year. In terms of visual effects this film is quite impressive.

News 18:

Two movies out this year about two different boys raised in the jungle, and no question it’s Mowgli who comes out on top. Okay, so perhaps The Legend Of Tarzan, based on Edgar Rice Burrough’s literary classic…

Rediff:

The story of ape man Tarzan is something most of us not only remember but cherish as well. As a kid, I loved watching Disney’s animated version of Tarzan, which released in 1999. In fact, I still do…

How big does a spectacle have to be these days to be called a spectacle? That’s the first thing that comes to mind as the screen fades to black with Hozier’s Better Love in David Yates’s The Legend of Tarzan…
