“The Legend of Tarzan” is really an excellent movie. The movie (based on the character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs) was directed by David Yates and written by Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer. Samuel L. Jackson brings a brilliant support. Congratulations to the artists in front and behind the cameras.
Alexander Skarsgård incarnated the heroic Tarzan. He developed a mix of Johnny Weissmuller and the Tarzan animated movie. He contributed to the great message of the movie in favor of the harmony with nature and the respect to the African culture; and against the slavery and the corruption.
But, I recognize the most brilliant performance in the role developed by Margot Robbie. She is the Power of the movie! She is the heroine with sensibility, energy, evolved consciousness, and breathtaking presence. Natural beauty, intellect, genuine charm and unique presence: Perfect combination! She confirms that Woman is God's Masterpiece.
The Legend of Tarzan… The POWER of Jane!
· When Warner Bros.—having kept a close eye on the dailies while Robbie was shooting Focus with Will Smith in late 2013—approached her about playing Jane, her first reaction was: Not for me. “There’s no way I was going to play the damsel in distress,” she says. But then she read the script. “It just felt very epic and big and magical in some way. I haven’t done a movie like that. The Harry Potter films could have been really cheesy, but David Yates made them into something dark and cool and real—plus it was shooting in London, and I, on a whim, had just signed a lease on a house there.” For Yates, “an unpretentiousness, a real pragmatism, was evident from the moment I met her. There’s something very true about her, and those qualities were very important for Jane—someone who’s open to experience the beauty of the world.”
