Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes 
Legend of Tarzan, Bore of the Apes
2/4 stars

A weird mixture of highbrow professionalism, pulpy silliness, and some pretty convincing ape effects and makeup. 'GREYSTOKE' aims to return the famed character Tarzan to his roots as a person out of place both in the African jungle and his home in England.
The cinematography is gorgeous and the supporting cast is surprisingly full of veteran British actors. There's Ralph Richardson, Ian Holm, James Fox, and even a cameo by Nigel Davenport. Christopher Lambert is monotone as Tarzan and Andie MacDowell was actually dubbed by Glenn Close post-production.
The movie looks good and has good actors in it. But the pacing is very slow. And it behaves more like a period drama than an action/adventure which I'm sure most people expected. So it ends up being boring when it's not weird. The first 30 minutes have almost no dialogue. The ending is a downer too.
