During the Berlin Conference held in 1884, the political power heads that participated in the meeting decide to divide African Congo among themselves. According to that, Belgium King Leopold II takes the mineral rich river basin under his control.
In an effort to upgrade the division, the King becomes a debtor in five years. Since he is not able to pay his own military people, he sends his best soldier Léon Rom to secure the fabled diamonds of Opar. While going there, Rom is caught by the natives. When he explains the purpose, the head of the natives are willing to hand over the diamonds but demands the return of Tarzan (the boy of their forest) who has moved to the country with his wife after marriage. Accepting this deal, Rom brings back Tarzan's wife Jane to the forest instead of Tarzan and what happens after that forms the crux of the story.
Alexander Skarsgard has played the titular role with a perfect physique that goes well with the character. Margot Robbie mesmerizes the audience as a damsel in distress role.
Director David Yates has scripted his story as Tarzan returning to the forests but with few logic lapses. The film is lacking in narrative momentum and the story shifts between too many sub plots. Anyway, Tarzan can be enjoyed for the creativity, visual effects and the performance of the actors.
