Synopsis

Tarzan and Jane Porter face a mercenary army dispatched by the evil CEO of Greystoke Energies, a man who took over the company from Tarzan’s parents, after they died in a plane crash.

Dove Review

Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan gets a 21st century makeover in this film, re-imagining similar origins in the modern day. The young boy who grew up amongst African jungle apes is, instead of battling off Victorian-era colonialism, seeking justice towards Greystroke Energies, which would devastate the natural world around him. Within the body of the film is a kind and compassionate message about environmentalism and how nature is just as keen to fight back at times.

Tarzan is an epic entertainment, especially for younger viewers in mind interested in age-appropriate action and adventure. Visually, the film brings to life the imagination of Burroughs – the perilous jungles, the scenic rivers and waterfalls – and makes it accessible to its audiences. Breathtaking action and vistas are balanced with conscientious and environmental messages.

Dove is proud to award Tarzan with approval for Ages 12+.
