Story : Tarzan and Jane's budding romance and idyll deep in the African bush is disturbed when the industrialist William Clayton arrives with a small army in search of a powerful energy source of intergalactic origin.

Review : The telling of Tarzan's (Lutz) tale in this version begins many, many years in the past when a meteorite crashes on Earth with cataclysmic results. Dinosaurs, leaping lizards and all the other prehistoric creepy crawlies wind up kaput. What remains, hidden for millennia, is the marauding chunk of rock in Africa.

This attracts the interest of John Greystoke (Deklin), CEO of Greystoke Energies, who along with wife Alice (Newman) and a young Tarzan head out to go find it because the material it's made of can solve the energy needs of the world and make Greystoke even richer. But their helicopter crashes in a storm and only Tarzan survives.

The young boy is brought up by an ape and so the story of this legend-in-a-loincloth is born. A chance encounter with Jane (Locke), daughter of a safari guide, stirs emotions in him (and her too) but Clayton's (Cappelletti) disruptive presence in Africa is the proverbial serpent in the Garden of Eden.

The story has the subtlety of a rhinoceros barraging through a forest. Although Tarzan's acrobatics as he swings through the jungle using hanging vines and lianas to shimmy up tall and thick trees is impressive, this soon grows old. Dwarfed by the vegetation, the arboreal ape-man's impossible leaps and lunges make him look rather like an agile grasshopper.

While the apes and birds have been rendered well enough, the designers have floundered with human rendering. The faces and physical movements look dated, like the physics engines of older videogames. Other shortcuts have been used too. When a helicopter lands in the jungle, the tree leaves and grass aren't moved by the rotor-wash, as if made of stone.

Tarzan is also immune to the climate; he is shown sprinting up and skating down a snow-covered mountain, whilst barefoot. All in all, it's a slipshod rendering of a classic.
