It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.

Critics Consensus: The Legend of Tarzan has more on its mind than many movies starring the classic character, but that isn't enough to make up for its generic plot or sluggish pace.

Tarzan returns to the jungle in violent action-adventure.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Legend of Tarzan follows a grown-up Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgard) back to the jungle after a decade of living in society with his wife, Jane (Margot Robbie). The reluctant hero is talked into helping George Washington Williams (Samuel L. Jackson) expose the mistreatment of the Congolese people. Expect plenty of brutal action violence: The movie starts out with an intense battle that leaves many dead, and there are scenes of shooting, people being slaughtered, very loud gorillas attacking people, and children and animals in peril. Tarzan loses his parents when he's a young boy (which could bother kids); he later fights both people and gorillas, and characters die. Older tweens and teens may appreciate this take on Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan novels, while younger viewers may find it too scary. There's also some swearing (including "s--t" and "ass"), drinking, passionate kissing, and a non-graphic sex scene.
