Kevin Lima and Chris Buck direct Tony Goldwyn, Minnie Driver and Glenn Close in this animated romance about a buff guy who likes to listen to Phil Collins and feels disconnected from civilised society.
The last great hurrah of the Disney renaissance and an unsung gem in the studio’s back catalogue. A rip roaring adventure and a touching romance told in bold, vibrant strokes. I know it is uncool to say but the Phil Collins songbook is rousing and toetapping. There’s a visual playfulness and smart storytelling, witness Tarzan best Sabor the leopardess, only for us to cut straight to the destructive arrival of blunderbuss toting Clayton. There’ll always be a deadly predator.
