Trevor Johnston(Time Out): Proves that technical knowhow and a trustworthy old yarn will only get you in such a manner far when imagination is lacking.
Peter Debruge(Variety): The change of place capture feels like a stunt, though the stunts … don't.
Jordan Mintzer(Hollywood Reporter): All of this feels awfully simplistic, like a 10-slender cartoon sketch bloated into a abounding-length movie, and one that's backed ~ means of an over-explanatory voiceover that can sometimes sound awkward.
Hilary A White(Irish Independent): The human characters all look flat and dead-eyed.
Neil Smith(Total Film): Having trashed unit icon in The Legend Of Hercules, Kellan Lutz shafts any other with vocals admittedly well-suited to the muscle-bound mannequin.
Mark Kermode(Observer [UK]): While the proposal-captured 3D CG has an unsafe photorealist quality, the wisdom of attempting to alteration Tarzan into an Avatar-lite fantasy scraps, at best, questionable.
Geoffrey Macnab(Independent): The act of enlivening is efficient but bland. The characters bear all the expressiveness of plastic dolls.
Allan Hunter(Daily Express): Do we indeed need another version of Edgar Rice Burroughs' greatest in number ripping yarn? Not on the foundation of this Tarzan, a bland impulse capture animated feature.
David Edwards(Daily Mirror [UK]): The characters' faces gain the expressiveness of shop mannequins and the view looks as if it was created through a low-end PC.
Alan Jones(Radio Times): While not of Disney/Pixar animation quality – especially in the appearance of the humans – this sprightly fantasy packs in enough tropical relating and vivid action to pass congregate.
Brian Viner(Daily Mail [UK]): Why the German fruit team felt the need to dash up the story of a male child who grows up to become 'king of the jungle' with one even more improbable tale involving a meteorite and a forfeited world is frankly anybody's believe.
Rich Cline(Contactmusic.com): The 90th pellicle based on the books by Edgar Rice Burroughs, this German-made sprightly romp adds little to the hundred years-old canon besides some motion-take by force action and an eco-friendly communication.
Peter Bradshaw(Guardian [UK]): Here's a in liquor and dull new family film not far from Tarzan, who in keeping with tradition is as clean-shaven and the whole of-over hairless as any male stripper.
Tim Evans(Sky Movies): Unfortunately, in these days of uniformly haughty-quality kids' fare this – through its lumbering voiceover and slack plotting – looks like it belongs up~ the body children's TV.
Tim Robey(Daily Telegraph): Whether or not the cosmos needs another Tarzan of any character, it's fairly clear that it didn't exigency this one.
Stefan Pape(HeyUGuys): A generic, superfluous offering. There's very contemptible in here for the adults, if it were not that kids may learn a thing or sum of ~ units at he very least.
Simon Reynolds(Digital Spy): This is further-than-passable family entertainment that's mercifully emancipated of Phil Collins.
Siobhan Synnot(Scotsman): If kids are captivated ~ dint of. the slight, over-explained story of Tarzan and Jane against evil mercenaries, I'll have ~ing a monkey's uncle.
Angie Errigo(Empire Magazine): Ponderously plotted and unwonderfully gay, this will disappoint audiences spoilt through Pixar-grade animations.
Mark Adams(Screen International): An pleasing and nicely animated romp.
