The legend of Tarzan: Now with abs… so many abs.

Tarzan is back and it is better than ever. Played by Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood), this king of the jungle will transport you to Africa and all you will want to do is live there with him. Ladies (and gentlemen, of course) be prepared for pure adrenaline, captivating muscles and great laughs.

The Legend of Tarzan is truly astonishing.

John Clayton III has left Africa and is now living in his beautiful manor in England. Married to Jane Porter (Margot Robbie), he is a true gentleman. He dresses and acts accordingly. However, John has two facets. Below the surface, hidden, is the famous Tarzan, a wild man born and raised in the jungle. Trying to exploit this celebrity, the government delivers John an invitation to return to the Congo and witness the great deeds done by King Leopold. He will voyage with his wife as well as Doctor George Washington Williams (Samuel L. Jackson) who believes that slavery is still ongoing and that treachery is at play. He is right, and nothing will go according to plan. Indeed, the evil Leon Rom has diamonds on his mind and nothing or no one will stop him.

Will Tarzan be able to reconnect with his wild side in time?

Jane Clayton: A normal man can do the impossible to save the woman he loves. My husband is no normal man.

Grandiose cinema! I loved it.

First of all, it is important to note that this version of Tarzan is different. David Yates managed to bring it into the 21st century flawlessly. It is no longer simply an adventure story. Tarzan, the myth and the real issues happening in the Congo at this moment in time have been linked quite cleverly. It somehow makes it more believable and attractive. Also, we are transported to this period and this world thanks to amazing special effects and beautiful scenery.

Secondly, the character of George Washington Williams has been added and offers a fresh view on the jungle and Africa in general. Guided with the knowledge of Tarzan, he is innocent and naive, like the audience. We can easily identify with him. He is us discovering life in the wild. Also, he brings humor into the film. The jungle can be dangerous and ominous, Dr Williams is quirky and very funny.

The jungle consumes everything. It preys on the old, the sick, the wounded. It preys on the weak, but never the strong.

Thirdly, this movie is not a brainless blockbuster. It is used to carry important messages such as the problem of the Ivory trade and the slaughter of elephant. It is educational as well as entertaining.

Last but not least, I have to say that The Legend of Tarzan is great fun. The jokes are funny because the characters work well and connect together but none of this would have worked without the awesomeness of Alexander Skarsgård. He is so impressive. He went through months and months of rigorous, particular training. His body had to change but this transformation is better than expected. Indeed, it had to be cleverly done so that he would resemble more a lean animal than a body-builder and the results are mesmerizing.

Enjoy!!!
