Legend of Tarzan [2016]

MPAA (PG-13)  Fr. Dennis (0 Stars)

IMDb listing

It's been several years that I've walked out of a movie.  I've done so twice -- Killer Joe [2012] and Sinister [2012].  Now surprisingly, with Legend of Tarzan [2016] (directed by David Yates, story and screenplay by Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer based, sort of, on the Tarzan stories [GR] [WCat] [Amzn] by Edgar Rice Burroughs [wikip] [GR] [WCat] [Amzn] [IMDb], lead role played by Alexander Skarsgård)

What the...?  Why the...?  Well the chief villain (played by Christoph Waltz) strangled people using his Rosary.  When about 45 minutes into the movie, after already doing so several times, he explains to Jane (played by Margot Robbie) that he got said Rosary from a priest friend when he was nine, she retorts: "You must have been close..."

I stayed dazed in the theater for about 5-10 minutes more and then said, "You know what, I'm done..."

Zero stars.   Indeed, for the second week in a row, as I asked with Independence Day: Resurgence [2016](though for different reasons) yet even more so here, can one give a film negative stars?  Both awful and sad.
