The Legend Of Tarzan Review

Ape-man is back. 
The Legend Of Tarzan Review - We all know about the boy who was raised by the apes but what happens after he leaves the jungle? 
I only see the abs but not the chemistry, sorry.
Tarzan aka John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke (Alexander Skarsgard) has found a comfortable life with his Lady Jane (Margot Robbie)  in London until his old Ape-man legacy comes calling for him once again. He receives an official invitation to travel to Congo as representative of United Kingdom from Belgian Captain Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz). Little did Tarzan knew that it was trap to trade his life for a huge amount of wealth from the natives. Once Tarzan reaches Congo, he realise the trick played by Rom who manage to kidnap Jane.  In order to rescue his wife, Tarzan is once again reunited with his…well…Tarzan side to face his enemy head and abs on. 
Thank you Chris...
Thank God for Christoph and Samuel L Jackson or else this movie would have been a bore. Not even Alex’s abs or Margot’s pretty face could have saved this film. The story was weak, the special effects were mediocre and there were total lack of chemistry between Alex and Margot. Let me explain, most of females I presume wanted to watch this version only to ogle at Alex’s wash board abs while the males were in for Margot. Not to say they didn’t act their part right but it just fell flat to me for some reason. The story kept going back and forth to flashbacks when Tarzan was Tarzan and John Clayton trying to rescue his wife. It got pretty annoying after a while. Plus the ending was so very predictable way from the beginning. 
Ape-man's friends...and foes...all suited up. 
Overall…I would rather watch The Jungle Book a few more times then sit thru Tarzan again.
