Tarzan gets the updated, animated, motion capture treatment, in a new version that merely apes the greats. With an environmentally friendly plot, poached straight from Avatar by way of Pocahontas, the young Greystoke heir to an energy conglomerate is orphaned in the jungle after a helicopter crash. Revised origin aside, rather than monkeying with a classic, all the key elements remain. Raised by apes? Check. Dull romance with Jane? Check. Bad guys? Check - evil corporate dudes, out to steal the energy source from a crashed deep-space meteor … or something. Whatever the danger, apes, Jane and Mother Nature still need the white guy in the loin-cloth to save the day.

The motion capture feels like a stunt, while the stunts ... don't.

What really sabotages Reinhard Klooss’ film is a subplot involving a meteorite-derived power source.

Proves that technical knowhow and a reliable old yarn will only get you so far when imagination is lacking.

A very moderate motion-capture animation, stripping the tale of any wit and burdening it with a pointless and baffling sci-fi backstory.

Feels awfully simplistic, like a 10-minute cartoon sketch bloated into a full-length movie

This will disappoint audiences spoilt by Pixar-grade animations.
