Audience Reviews

3 stars

Christopher Lambert seemed like a great acting discovery at the time, it is now clear that the role of someone half-ape, half-man was perfect for him.

A great film with equally great scenery. Greystoke has become awefully forgotten, despite the fact that it's miles better than director Hugh Hudson's very overpraised( and multi-oscar winning) Chariots of Fire.

A more literary and intelligent treatment of the Tarzan story, the quality cast and well fleshed out characters make for a far more fulfilling film than the usual Dr. Dolittle/swinging/yodelling combo.
