Tarzan, watch out for that monster!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Funny, Fresh story

Cons:Bad influencing, Very short movie

The Bottom Line: Worth renting, not buying.


In his movie Tarzan is a young boy that is living with a group of gorillas. The movie starts off with Tarzan trying to outrun a monster played by his young ape playmate. He gets in trouble with the elder adults for putting the other young apes in a dangerous situation. He feels like he doesn't fit in and that he's not as fast as the others.

There is a monster called Zugor that the young apes are afraid of. Tarzan feels that he’s not fast enough and will be eaten by Zugor or another animal if he doesn’t get faster.

Tarzan eventually runs into Zugor, an old ape, and realizes that he’s not a monster at all. After spending some time with Zugor Tarzan find out he’s more like Zugor than his ape family. Zugor helps Tarzan understand that he’s not an ape but isn’t sure what he is. He makes a deal with Zugor that he won’t blow Zugor’s cover if Zugor helps him find out what he is.

Some bad apes enter the scene to create a little trouble. They play bad guys and are not the brightest or the best looking. Tarzan and his buddies have a confrontation with them and soon outsmart them.

I rolled my eyes at some of the scenarios and my 11-year-old piped in that he would feel the same way if he was in Tarzan’s position.

This reminded me of an adult R movie interchanged with cartoon characters so now becomes a G movie. G is very generous. There was a lot going on in this movie which made it funny but perhaps not the type of things that I would like my kids watching over and over. There was name calling, punching, yelling, feeling sorry for oneself, anger, freeloading, bullying, threatening by force, and all the bad behaviors that go on in Disney movies these days.

Acting was wonderful in this movie. The voices were strong and matched the characters. The expressions on the faces were exaggerated a lot so young children will be able to understand what the emotions are being exhibited. The movie is really pretty funny. We laughed a lot.

My kids ages 2, 5, and 11 liked this movie. They’ve watched it twice. Now like I mentioned above there are probably behaviors in this movie you won’t want repeated at home. My kids are roaring pretending to be Zugor and try to scare each other.

My 11-year-old son gives the show a 5 star and thinks that it is even better than the original Tarzan. I don’t really think it has anything to do with the original Tarzan but I think he was glad that they took the story back to his childhood which seemed more interesting than adulthood I guess. My 5-year-old daughter gives it 3 stars. She likes it because it’s funny but didn’t care for the kissing scene at the end. She wasn’t interested in watching it more than once. My youngest sat still and watched it intently both times which means she really liked it probably giving it a 4 star. Sometimes she called out answerers to Tarzan so she must have been following along.

I recognized the voice of Phil Collins singing several times in the movie. The songs went nicely with the movie.

Usually sequels aren’t any good but I think this one is pretty good maybe because they started with a new plot. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Tarzan so I don’t even remember it much now. This movie is just about one little journey that takes place over a couple days in a young child’s life. It’s very lighthearted and fun and has a happy ending.

Tarzan is a cute movie to see once but I don’t think it has high replay value. We won’t be adding it to our Disney collection.
