Movie Reviews

Old School Reviews - 9/10 by John A. Nesbit'Tarzan the Ape Man is one helluva action film ... contrasting civilization with the wild and criticizing human greed without being overly preachy'
Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers - 6/10 by Steve CrumVery vine, er...fine Weismuller, his first, with sexy O'Sullivan Jane.
Tim Dirks' The Greatest Films - 6/10 by Tim DirksTarzan the Ape Man (1932) is the first feature-length talking (sound) version of the Tarzan series [Tarzan films stretch into the silent film era back to 1918].
User Review - 10/10 by Jonathan SAn incredible adventure film filled with raw violence, sensuality, and humor. The climax verges on some weird horror movie. The crude 1933 photography makes it all look even more authentic - just a notch above newsreel. Awesome! Script by Cyril Hume (Forbidden Planet) with dialog by actor/songwriter Ivor Norvello.
User Review - 10/10 by Ken DThis movie is what started my love for the old black and white classics
User Review - 10/10 by Michael KA masterpiece of 30's cinema. A big, sexy, violent adventure with superb performances from Johnny Weissmuller and the beautiful Maureen O'Sullivan in particular and impressively integrated animal setpieces and stunts. Vine swinging action at it's best, aimed at a mature audience. The sequel, Tarzan And His Mate, is equally brilliant.
User Review - 10/10 by Neil KCheetah the chimp moves along the ground with his leg sticking out in front and using his arms almost like crutches. This is how my emergency backup daughter would crawl when she was a baby, only she managed to do all this while sliding on her ass. Fantastic movie, with Jane screaming about every 20 seconds. I've been waiting to see this again since I was about 12 years old. Thank you Turner Classics.

User Review - 8/10 by Kevin M. WThe best Tarzan ever features loads of vine-swinging, some water frolic-ing, and plenty of the big lug going up against the many animal dangers (he takes out two, count 'em, two lions, one after the other, and this while injured) Darkest Africa might present. In the middle there's a nice little interlude wherein Jane and he simply get to know one another. And all the action is framed by the infamous hunt for the legended elephant's graveyard. Sure, the piece is as racist as it could be (the main bad guys are Black Midgets, no political message there) and much of the tech is, well, old, but no one has surpassed the sheer adventure of this telling of Burrough's White-man-as-god thesis.
User Review - 8/10 by Matt .This movie had some amazing parts. It was also amazingly politically incorrect (but so were the books). I used to love these movies when I was little; it was a lot of fun to see them again. The story is about a girl named Jane who comes to visit her father in Africa. They go on a journey to find an elephant burial ground. Their party is separated by an attack from dangerous spear-wielding natives. Enter Tarzan. Tarzan meets Jane and decides?well he decides he wants her in his tree. He doesn?t really do anything with her, I think he was just bored and wanted something fun to look at. And he has a monkey. That?s pretty much it. He plays with Jane, saves some people, and screams a lot. It is better than it sounds. This movie has Tarzan wrestling several animals. A leopard, some sort of deer, and two lions. What amazed me was that he actually fights live animals. This isn?t one of those movies where they unconvincingly fight a stuffed or animatronic animal. These animals are the real deal and let me tell you, the lions especially did not seem happy. They sure don?t make movies like they used to. The scenes where Tarzan is flying through the jungle rate right up there with Spiderman for amazing and awe-inspiring acrobatic movie performances. There is one point in the movie where Tarzan is arguing with the chimp and he gets angry and pushes the chimp. I don?t know why but I laughed so hard watching that. I rewound it and watched it 5 times. I mean who does that? How often do you see a movie where someone shoves a chimpanzee. Never. You never see that in a movie. Another of my favorite scenes is when a herd of elephants stampede through a pygmy village (really just a whole lot of black midgets). And elephant runs up to a pygmy, picks him up with his trunk and throws him. I was in awe. ?How did they film that?? I thought. How do you get an elephant to throw a midget without hurting him? I don?t know, but if you watch this movie keep a lookout for that scene and maybe you can tell me. It?s a little outdated, but still a lot of fun. I think they should make a live action Tarzan movie today; sort of a cross between Planet of the Apes and King Kong. It could be totally awesome. They should follow the books more. The books are great.
