The Legend of Tarzan's user reviews

The Hollywood Reporter

Beautifully done (...) This is, really, the best non-animated Tarzan picture in more than a decade (...) and offers a good balance between drama and action

The Guardian

Read review Jordan Hoffman

'The Legend of Tarzan' is sequel, origin story and racially sensitive revisionist history lesson all in one (...) between this and last year?s ?Pan,? evidence suggests Warner Brothers ought to leave the live-action reboots to Disney
