Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984)



Reviews and Comments

Rare amongst Tarzan films in that it actually tries to tell Edgar Rice Burroughs' original story faithfully. Purists still find fault, but it comes closer than most of the movies have. But this is not necessarily a good thing: here and there, the movie seems to be trying too hard to be the book instead of being a good movie. But it is mostly successful, and the serious thinking it does about the character makes an intriguing complement to the more adventure-oriented adaptations.
