He is married with Jane and uses the name of John Clayton III. A treacherous Leon Rom who envoy for King Leopold lures Tarzan to come to Kongo. This is where the story begins. It turns out that he killed the son of chief Keewazi, the leader of Waziri tribe. It was not without reason but because Kolunga the son of chief Keewazi has killed Tarzan’s Ape mother first. So this is about vengeance after vengeance.
In the Box Office, 356.7 million USD has been earned. The Legend of Tarzan is a lot of fun, adventure, romance and adrenaline. There are beautiful forests, natural landscapes, digital animals and more. Well, there are pros and cons about this movie. And, we are discussing them with you.
Where is the original story of Tarzan? The real Tarzan would not love to stay a long time in the city. Jungle is his home sweet home where every single day is an adventure. I mean, Tarzan in a suite? Oh come on! This is simply not right for the story relatively to the king of the jungle. Well, apparently many viewers love it at all due to uniqueness and distinctive story line.
When it comes to optics, this Tarzan has always the bad one. I do not mean to be racist but hey it is so obvious. Except his childhood which was raised by apes and turned into a wild man. Although it is impossible and irrational, the story is not too hard to accept at all.
Alexander Skarsgard as Tarzan has given the character a very good attraction. The diamond-cut muscles of his are indeed an attraction to the big-screen. It is a part of the allures to expose to audiences. I say just “nice”.
Leon Rom with his beaded talisman, he seems so powerful with it at his hands. I mean he is like an expert of martial art with talisman stuff. Even the mighty Tarzan cannot stand against him. Strangled and choked Tarzan looks helpless. But well, he is the hero in the story so it would not be funny at all to see him defeated.
One of the most exhilarating scenes is that the flock of wild the beast rumbling to destroy Leon Rom’s port house. It is so much. Another scene is where Tarzan fighting Akut. It is just awesome although only a few minutes scene.
