Tarzan’s Three Challenges is another decent adventure from the classic character by Edgar Rice Burroughs and while I’ve never been a big fan of the character, these movies did tend to entertain just enough.
Tarzan seems to be the ignored stepchild amongst Disney’s animated titles (talking 80s and 90s), taking a backseat to Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Aladdin or The Little Mermaid but it’s a fun and finely animated flick with some good voice casting and incredible sequences, especially the first-person view shots. The Blu-ray released by Buena Vista offers up amazing audio/video transfers and the features, albeit nothing new, is decent enough.
Some of the animation in Lionsgate distributed Tarzan actually isn’t bad… if kept at difference otherwise close-ups tend to reveal the creepy dead-eyes. However, the story also isn’t that good, although unlike some, I actually don’t have many issues with the changes made, it’s just that what is there, to go along with clunky dialogue, isn’t all that enthralling.
