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 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.
[Tarzan * (Fitzcaraldo + Cobra Verde) / Yates - Herzog] ^ puking rainbow color-correction + hanus vfx + fetishistic tie-me-up themes = what the fucking fuck did I just watch? "People love a good story..." Oh, and then there's Sam L's worst performance in recent memory. I can only imagine it was because he had long lost any glimmer of hope in the character and his director.
A very tedious exercise in filmmaking. Everything about this movie should work but for me it doesn´t. Skarsgard and Robbie fails to brings their shallow characters to life and neither does Waltz. Only Jackson seem to get some sort of character arc and manages to breathe life into the movie. The biggest problem here is that the movie never takes any risks. Everything is servicable but plain and dull.
This film belongs right next to Lone Ranger as one of the underrated hidden gems of blockbuster entertainment. It's straightforward storytelling from top to bottom but the cinematography was fantastic. It's far from a great film, but it was damn easy entertainment. Christoph Waltz plays one of those classic villains you genuinely hate but don't see much of anymore. Skarsgård is a chiseled chunk of sex. Classic.
