A Kiss Between Alexander Skarsgard And Christoph Waltz Was Cut From 'The Legend Of Tarzan'


Alexander Skarsgard Christoph Waltz Margot Robbie David Yates

A scene in which Christoph Waltz’s character Rom kisses Alexander Skarsgard in The Legend of Tarzan was removed from the final film for being “too clever”, according to director David Yates. Speaking to The Times Yates explained that test audiences were left “perplexed” by the kiss, which happened when Tarzan was unconscious.

The Legend of Tarzan castThe Legend of Tarzan originally featured a kiss between Alexander Skarsgard and Christoph Waltz.

Yates explained that as part of the film’s effort not to “fall into the trap of what Tarzan represented to some people”, the original cut included a scene where Belgian soldier Rom (played by Christoph Waltz) kisses Tarzan.

The Legend Of Tarzan Review

Good

It's been nearly 30 years since the last live-action Tarzan movie, and yet it still feels too soon for another remake. Thankfully, this is actually a sequel (perhaps it should have been titled Tarzan Returns), and along with a first-rate cast, this movie has a surprisingly beefy script that hints at a much more high-brow adventure epic. But clearly the studio preferred to make a mindless bit of blockbuster action.

After leaving the jungle, Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgard) has settled into life in damp 1880s England as the Earl of Greystoke with his American wife Jane (Margot Robbie). Meanwhile, deep in the Congo, Belgian diplomat Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz) has made a deal with Chief Mbonga (Djimon Hounsou), who has a personal grudge against Tarzan. Planning to hand over Tarzan in exchange for diamonds, Leon lures Tarzan back to Africa, accompanied by Jane and the American explorer George Washington Williams (Samuel L. Jackson), who suspects that the slave trade hasn't ended. On arrival, Leon pounces, and Tarzan must revert to the instincts he learned from the gorillas who raised him, while calling on help from old friends.

The plot is actually quite compelling, sparking lots of whooshing action (including plenty of vine-swinging) while grappling with some bigger themes involving colonialism and racism, plus more personal issues of identity and responsibility. The actors pack their scenes with textures that touch on these ideas, while also providing a spark of wit. With his impossibly sculpted physique, Skarsgard looks rather too gym-fit for the role, but he gives Tarzan a soulfulness that makes him likeable. He also develops some steamy chemistry with Robbie, who shines in her role as a feisty woman happy to return to the village where she was raised. The best scene in the film is when she has dinner with Waltz' sneering villain, gleefully swapping innuendo. And even with the action and gunplay, this is Jackson's deepest role in years.
