Very intense

I picked this movie based on reviews and it was much more intense and upsetting than I expected. There is quite a bit of violence and death (including a baby gorilla and Tarzan’s parents). My 7-year-old was in tears for the first 30 minutes and then refused to watch the rest.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Between beautiful animation and a literate script, this is a lot of fun and something parents and kids could watch and enjoy together. The logical flow gets a bit murky when the evil Clayton suddenly relaunches the search for the powerful meteor after having abandoned the project for 15 years. And Jane's decision to stay in the jungle with Tarzan and a bunch of silverback in-laws may also strain credulity and raise questions among curious children. But mostly Tarzan is a visual treat that poses good against evil, with some magic thrown in.
