When I saw the upcoming movies in 2016, I couldn’t help but to be excited when I saw The Legend of Tarzan and its lead role went to one of my Hollywood celebrity crushes!
Luckily, I got free tickets to the advanced screening, which was held last night (May 29) at SM Megamall Cinema 2.
Why should you watch it? Here are the things that I appreciated with this film.
~What is the story all about?
I was expecting the movie adaptation just like the 1999 animated film of Tarzan. Somehow it was different. It didn’t start with Tarzan being found by gorillas. There were flashes of his life when he was in the jungle, but it gave more glimpse of why he was called the King of the Jungle.
~Alexander Skarsgard is the perfect Tarzan.
The height, built and hair, I couldn’t deny that Alexander was indeed Tarzan. I like how mysterious and at the same time expressive his eyes are just like what I always imagine if there would be a true Tarzan.
~The other side of Jane Porter.
I’m not a fan of Jane because she is only a love interest of Tarzan. Yet, seeing how Margot Robbie portrayed this brave woman with huge faith and a great spirit to her loved one, I actually look up to her.
~Deeper Story and Funny Moments.
This is not the typical plot that we used to know. I liked how they brought up John Clayton III but didn’t forget the real Tarzan. There were serious and quite horrifying scenes yet what surprised me was Samuel L. Jackson’s character: Dr. George Washington Williams. He was very hilarious to the point that I couldn’t even stop myself from laughing and kept waiting for his next act.
