    While "Greystoke" has aged moderately well since its release 32 years ago, the blu ray of this film looks pretty good. Rick Baker's fantastic ape makeup is the best part of this production, followed by the performances of a young Christopher Lambert and Ian Holm as his Belgian mentor. Director Hugh Hudson took Burroughs' pulp novel ideas of Tarzan and tried to craft something akin to Downton Abbey. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not so much. But I still love it for the grand experiment that it was.

    Great score ,great cast .more faithful to original book but I missed the famous Tarzan yell.The music made up for some of that .Lambert , Richardson McDowell and Fox all very good . Film develops tremendous compassion for the apes especially in the museum scenes.Along with Richardson and McDowell We grow to love the wise innocence of Tarzan ,although he is never called by name . A change of pace for Tarzan fans.

    I love the DVD of this film. It has a totally clear picture and a great sound. The special features are definitively worth watching. The commentary is very informative and interesting. It's definitively worth the money.

    A beautiful presentation of a wonderful film. Restored video looks great and the audio side leaves little to be desired.
