An interesting re-shaping of a classic story that could've left a much greater impact were it not bogged down by half-assed CGI landscapes (and animals) and a predictable plot. The foundation was there, but yet again David Yates' visual style is generic, dull, without so much as an inkling of originality - ultimately undoing what was a very interesting premise.
Old fashioned adventure yarn represents the best capture of Tarzan in decades save perhaps the Disney animated one in the 90's. Skarsgard is perfectly cast here trading on his extreme masculinity and veiled emotion, while the supporting cast lend a little gusto to their stock roles. Yates, after years adapting the Harry Potter tales, knows how to tell a tale and does so with gusto and verve. Well worth a watch.
This movie supposed to be fun and full of adrenaline but instead was very dull and so superficial. The story is simple, nothing apart. Also the characters does not impress so much, especially Tarzan who is not so convincing, doesn't feel like he has a story behind him. And the main reason for that is because the flashbacks really don't worked here.
With pity, 5/10.
