The Plot: Based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs books, the film starts with the meeting between a female ape called Kala and a small English infant in a treetop house. The baby's parents appear to have been killed by the same leopard who is presently stalking the wooden shack. With the wild cat licking its chops for that human baby, Kala spirits the child away, calls him Tarzan and raises him as her own.
The human ape has a problem blending in with the gorillas, especially under the resentful scrutiny of ape leader Kerchak.Nonetheless, the young Tarzan makes friends with an elephant called Tantor and Terk, a personable, wisecracking ape. One day, Tarzan, who has grown up to be a studly, slouching dude, encounters a group of English explorers: the arrogant, rifle-toting Clayton, the kindly professor Porter and his sweet daughter Jane, who wanders off into the jungle. -- Desson Howe, Washington Post staff writer
