Tarzan and the Lost City - Movie Synopsis & Plot
To the manor born. Lost in the deepest African interiors. Schooled by the creatures of the jungle. Returned to the British society from whence he came. And now called back to Africa, to defend his childhood home against an onslaught of arrogant mercenaries intent on plundering the mystical city of Opar.
Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, is back.
Since they first brought him to the big screen in 1918, filmmakers have continuously returned to the rich lore of Edgar Rice Burroughs' timeless tale of the boy who grew to become Lord of the Apes. The fantasy, the action and the exotic settings have inspired filmmakers for decades; now, in this latest adventure, Tarzan returns to his jungle home to thrill legions of fans worldwide.
Casper Van Dien, the hot young actor who starred in Paul Verhoeven's hit, "Starship Troopers," is Tarzan, who, on the eve of the wedding to his beautiful fiancee, Jane (Jane March), is confronted by a vision of the destruction of his childhood home. Torn between staying in England with Jane and returning at once to Africa, Tarzan, Lord Greystoke, returns to his adopted home, where he squares off against European soldiers of fortune, led by the Oxford-educated Nigel Ravens (Steven Waddington), bent on discovering and looting the legendary and mythic city of Opar.
