The Legend of Tarzan is a must watch, that’s the excitement I had since I saw the trailer and true, it lives up to the excitement.

The story has been cleverly entwined with the rule of King Leopold of Belgium in the 1890s when Africa’s lands had been colonized by the Europeans. The king is bankrupt and sends his most trusted envoy Leon Rom to set the final plans of lifetime slavery and exploit the diamonds from the mountains of Opar. When he arrives there, he meets the man in charge Chief Mbonga who agrees to make an exchange provided Leon returns to him Tarzan.

Leon sets the trap for Tarzan to return to Congo from London but doesn’t anticipate two newcomers, Tarzan’s wife Jane and the American special envoy George Washington Williams. The drama begins now.

Director David Yates who did 5 of the Harry Potter films, was bound to give us a mega blockbuster. He has delivered with humility, grace and art. From the ape scenes of mother and son, brothers fighting, lioness and Tarzan hugging, wildebeest migration run and so much more, you will have never ever felt so close to Africa’s wildlife and it’s nature with such awesomeness. The choice of the actor as Tarzan, Alexander Skarsgard is handsome, tough, silent and powerful. Margot Robbie as Jane is fun, strong and beautiful. Samuel L Jackson as the American special envoy, is unbeatable, his facial expressions and dialogue delivery is just too good, I wonder if Will Smith could have done this role? Djimon Hounsou as Chief Mbonga is very handsome as an African leader, standing tall, proud and full of emotions in his eyes, excellent performance. But in all this you need a conniving villain, and Christoph Waltz as Leon Rom is perfect.

The Legend of Tarzan has been mostly shot in Gabon and couldn’t have come at a better time when the world is seriously uniting to fight global warming, climate change, elephant poaching and wildlife illegal trade. It should inspire individuals to appreciate the animal connection and love that can be shared with human beings. Actually the human being is a danger to our planet and not the other way around.
