Series Info

A Gen-Y spin on the Edgar Rice Burroughs classic had the ape man loose in New York, struggling to adapt to an urban jungle. Golden-haired underwear model Travis Fimmel starred as the long-lost heir to Greystoke Industries who was held captive by his uncle. He eventually escaped and met doe-eyed police detective Jane, setting up the romantic backstory. It never really clicked, with many fans of the mythology finding it disconcerting to have a Tarzan who's prettier than Jane.

Critics Consensus: Sorely lacking the escapist thrills of previous interations, this Tarzan falls flat with an absurdly self-serious tone and mismatched plotting.
