TARZAN (1999 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Stars ììì

Tarzan—although disappointingly short in length (only 88 minutes)—turns into a very good movie for adults and children alike. The film, illustrated with the usual terrific Disney animation, tells how the whole Tarzan story begins with Tarzan’s human parents, their jungle home, and Tarzan’s eventual adoption into a gorilla colony.

Storyline

How it all began—a shipwreck, a tree house, a brutal murder, an infant left alone in the jungle, and decisions, decisions, decisions: “Now that I know I am human, what do I do?”
