    The stylized physiques and movements of the characters in this exciting animated musical-romance-adventure are at once realist and fantastic.

    This is entertainment worth thumping your chest over. [18 June 1999, Life, p.2E]

    Of the many excellent animated features Disney has produced over the past decade, this is the one that feels the freest, and sweetest.
  4. Although the villainous parts of this Tarzan are a bit hazy and the animal attraction between Tarzan and Jane a bit chaste, the film, nevertheless, works both for children and the adults.
  5. Speaking of Jane, Minnie Driver gets the big banana for top off-screen performance. She brims over with prissiness and pep, tenderness and visionary appreciation.
  6. 75
    From a purely visual standpoint, this may be the most impressive of all of Disney's traditionally animated features.
  7. 50
    Visually rich yet numbingly formulaic.

    Tarzan is a bright and beautiful film lifted only higher by the brilliance of Phill Collins' soundtrack.

But the film has its moments, mostly due to the weird relationship of Tarzan and Jane. Provocatively humorous, and a friendly, childlike version to the gritty books of nineteenth century. A regular Disney movie. Expand
