Interesting story, but boring action and characters in violent reboot like action movie is lackluster and dumb but has some good effects.
This dumb and overlong action thriller has a complicated story, and starts off in the late 1800s in England. It's been ten years since John Clayton -- was known as Tarzan in the Jungle and met his wife, Jane. When he's invited to go back to the Jungle to find out information about slaves in the Congo (run by Leon Rom, the king). When John and Jane get there, they meet their childhood/teenage/young adult friends that live in a beautiful village, but when a brutal attack becomes present, lead by Leon Rom, Jane and the rest of the villagers are taken hostage on a boat, and now John/Tarzan must do anything he can to save them. When he meets up with a man from England (played by Samuel L. Jackson), he must travel through the Jungle, meat some dangerous animals, and battle some bloody battles. Will they get Jane and the Congo people safe? How will this tale end? Violence 4/5: Violence is usually quite strong, brutal, but bloodless besides some gory wounds and animal attacks. Several Congo men are shot by Leon and his army in a scene next to the home of a tribe, and dead bodies are seen. Crocodile eats a man alive as he screams. A heard of several different types of animals trample and crush men, destroying buildings and bones. A man battles a gorilla with bashing, smashing, and eventually, the gorilla biting the man. He is seen stitching the gory wound with dead ants. Tarzan's parents are killed, his father is beaten to death by a gorilla, and his mother dies of sickness. Leon strangles villagers and tribes men with his rosary as they scream. A man executes a leader of a village point blank with a bullet to the head, as everyone screams. Bloody flashbacks to Tarzan being threatened by a Gorilla with lots of screaming, and when his Gorilla mother is brutally killed/shot with some blood visible, Tarzan kills a teen boy in revenge by slashing him with a knife. Burning villages. Beating. Suffering slaves nearly drown in water. Some disturbing wounds. A gorilla is shot and the dead body is seen, and the other gorilla's smash and break human's necks to ensure that they're equal. Some jump scares. A man shoots another man's ear, leaving part of it bleeding, and blown off. Men inside of a train car are smashed, shot, and have their skulls bashed in by Tarzan in his parter. Dead bodies. Explosions. Rapid gun fire from a machine gun. Dozens die. Guns, arrows, and shooting. Battle scenes. Tweens in peril. Brief joke about how a man was very close to his priest, implying he was raped. Sexual content and nudity 3/5: Some passionate kissing between Tarzan and Jane. When Tarzan first meets Jane in the Jungle, he kisses her legs, and sniffs her, and we briefly hear him starting to preform an act, but she stops it. Brief, non-graphic and mostly implied sex scene between Jane and Tarzan, and he is seen kissing on top of her, and their bare backs, and legs are seen. Language 4/5: One use of "s--t," "a--," "b---h," "the N word," and a few, hard to hear uses of "f--k," which are sometimes inaudible. Drinking and drugs 2/5: Some smoking, and adults drink homemade, hard liquor, some get drunk. Time for the quality part! Quality starts 1 star, closer to 2: This dumb and boring sequel although has an interesting plot and some slightly entertaining moments, it's filled with horrible, lame affects, and scenes that don't make sense at all. The acting from Margo Robbie is not too great, and it's extremely easy to see that all of her reactions are fake to everything in the story. Most shooting, and even the bloody deaths look completely fake, filled with CGI. It's also historically not true, including some real life cities in different counties, and the way Tarzan fights is physically impossible for a human. This underwhelming movie, although has a few entertaining moments, a few good affects, and a somewhat interesting story, it's boring, dumb, and most of the affects are horrible, not to mention the sucky acting. My rating:PG-13 for intense sequences of action violence, bloody images/wounds, a scene of sexual content, language, and drinking.
