Tarzan and the Lost City is a 1998 American action-adventure film directed by Carl Schenkel, and starring Casper Van Dien, Jane March and Steven Waddington. The screenplay by Bayard Johnson and J. Anderson Black is loosely based on the Tarzan stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

One of the film's producers, Stanley S. Canter, had produced another Tarzan film for Warner Bros., Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, back in 1984.

Plot

In 1913, on the night before Jane Porter's wedding to John Clayton (also known as Tarzan), her bridegroom receives a disturbing vision of his childhood homeland in peril. Much to Jane's distress, Clayton leaves for Africa to help. The educated explorer Nigel Ravens is seeking the legendary city of Opar, to plunder its ancient treasures. But then Jane decides to follow her fiancé, and he must protect her while trying to stop Ravens and his men.

Cast

Production

The film was shot in South Africa.[2]

German composer Christopher Franke composed the original musical score.

Reception

The film received mainly negative reviews, criticizing the low budget production values, effects and writing,[3][4] and has a "rotten" 6% on review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes.[5]

However, a very rare positive review came from the New York Times, where critic Lawrence Van Gelder declared the film "A throwback to the days of Saturday afternoon adventures in exotic locales that were usually Hollywood back lots" and that it "zips along, past the ritual lions, elephants and cobras to the city of Opar and its temple of illusions, tunnels and traps, and right to the inevitable satisfying showdown."[6]
