Product Description

Amazon.ca

After viewing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote to Walt Disney about adapting his novel of an ape-man into a feature animated cartoon. Sixtysome years later, the tale is finally told with brilliant design work that looks unlike any previous animated film. The story is a natural for Disney since the themes of misunderstood central figures have been at the heart of its recent hits. Disney's Tarzan doesn't wander far from the familiar story of a shipwrecked baby who is brought up by apes in Africa. What gives the film its zing is its clever use of music (the songs are sung by Phil Collins himself rather than onscreen characters) and the remarkable animation. Deep Canvas, a 3-D technology, was developed for the film, creating a jungle that comes alive as Tarzan swings through the trees, often looking like a modern skateboarder racing down giant tree limbs. The usual foray of sidekicks, including a rambunctious ape voiced by Rosie O'Donnell, should keep the little ones aptly entertained. The two lead voices, Tony Goldwyn as Tarzan and Minnie Driver as Jane, are inspired choices. Their chemistry helps the story through the weakest points (the last third) and makes Tarzan's initial connection with all things human (including Jane) delicious entertainment. Disney still is not taking risks in its animated films, but as cookie-cutter entertainment, Tarzan makes a pretty good treat. (Ages 5 and up) --Doug Thomas

By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
VIDEO:

Tarzan flew onto blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.78:1 encode. The transfer is fairly pristine, with bold splashes of colour, vivid primaries, inky black levels and carefully balanced contrast. Detail is pretty striking as well. There was concern about macroblocking, especially in gorilla’s fur on close-up. I would expect this defect would be magnified in my 12-foot wide screen. To my pleasant surprise, there was no macroblocking seen at all. Overall, the transfer is quite pleasing. (4/5)

AUDIO:

For some unknown reasons, Tarzan only comes with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.0 track, not LFE track. I am slightly disappointed in this Disney’s decision. The sound is still very good, especially when the music of Phil Collins kicks in, as each musical instrument (particularly the drums) comes across as separate and distinct sounds. The fidelity and dynamic range of this track is simply wonderful. I was just wondering what if the LFE channel was added, the drum beat will be even more outstanding. You’ll Be In My Heart by Phil Collins won Best Oscar Original Song. Dialogue is very clear. The choice of voices for Kala (Glenn Close), Kerchak (Lance Henriksen), and Terk (Rosie O’Donnell) is simply outstanding. Kala’s voice at the mother is oh so very soothing. (4.5/5)

TRIVIA:

1 The signature "Tarzan yell" is provided by Brian Blessed, the voice of the film's villain Clayton.
2 Did you notice that when the gorillas pick up Professor Porter and turn him upside-down, a beanbag toy of Little Brother from Disney's Mulan (1998) falls out of his clothes?

4.0 out of 5 stars good movie, great music, lame dvd treatment March 9 2004
By audrey
Format:DVD
I suppose we are meant to wait for Disney to give this a decent two-disc treatment. Right now there are few extras on the dvd (though the languages are rather amazing).
The movie, the well-known tale from Edgar Rice Burroughs, is very well done, with terrific songs from Phil Collins, very nice voice work and delightful animation. There is some violence and four deaths, though they aren't bloody.
Extras include a trivia game, a storybook version of the film with optional read-along, a Collins music video and a behind-the-scenes studio session with Collins. The film can be heard in English, Cantonese or Mandarin; and subtitles are available in English, Mandalay, Bahasa, Thai or Korean!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun - Kids and Adults Will Both Enjoy This Nov. 21 2003
Format:VHS Tape
We own a lot (a LOT) of Disney animated DVDs, and our kids watch them often. Some (like Pocahontas and Hunchback of Notre Dame) get viewed once and then shelved because the music's crummy, the story's slow or dumb, and the kids just don't want to see them again. Tarzan, though, gets viewed again and again. Thank goodness it's a great, watchable story. Lots of action, wonderful job by Minnie Driver voicing Jane, pretty good Phil Collins music, all combine to make this an enjoyable watch. I'd recommend it to anybody looking for a good gift for young kids.

4.0 out of 5 stars *****Wow!****** July 10 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is a great movie but its the kind that you can get a little tired of after a while. I didn't really care for Minnie Driver's voice for Jane Porter; it didn't fit somehow. And while the music in Trashin' the camp was differant from the rest of the soundtrack,it was refreshing and I thought it fit perfectly with the destruction of the camp.
Phil Collins did a superb job with the music. I got goosebumps on several parts,he's that good. His singing voice just seems to fit with the wild jungle setting. All in all,a good movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best animation ever produced by Disney Jan. 3 2003
Format:DVD
Disney's animation has varied greatly lately, varying from such horrible animation as Atlantis, to the great animation of Beauty and the Beast. Even in comparison to the most recent disney film, Treasure Planet, Tarzan's animation is STILL much better than any other Disney film ever created. The studies of human anatomy are so amazing that if you look you can actually see that Glenn Keane and his team actually animated the character Tarzan from the bone up! The amount of work and money and time that has been put into this movie is quite apparent and makes the film ever that much more better.
While the comic relief characters of Terk and Tantaur are simply not needed (that role is taken by Porter), they do not totally detract from the movie's quality, as they seem to take very much a back seat through most of the movie. The character acting and animation is quite astonishing, as the animator John Ripa brings us through the feelings Tarzan goes through as a young boy coping with the harsh reality that he will never truly fit in with those he believes to be his family; as well as the feelings of love and understanding we find when the great master animator, Glen Keane puts his pencil to paper and helps us fall in love with Jane, and shed tears as we say goodbye to Kala, the ape mother of Tarzan.
Overall, Tarzan is an amazing film, the story, the characters, the backgrounds, and the animation are the best Disney has ever had since it's movie, Beauty and the Beast, and has only now been challenged by its latest movie Treasure Planet. I recommend this movie to anyone who has even the slightest appreciation for quality animation/film, as it ranks as one of the highest most well-done animated feature lenght films of all time.
