1930's serial in the "Flash Gordon" tradition.
27 October 2002 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

If you like the Flash Gordon serials, you will very probably like this one too. Directed by Ford Beebe, the story line is great in the old tradition--the "Ivory Patrol", the "Jungle Cruiser" and of course the famous elephants' burial ground. Remember it now?

Acting is so-so, there's plenty of stock footage of Africa, and some of the locations will remind you of the old Commando Cody serials. Nevertheless the story moves well and there is not a lot of fist fighting which tends to detract from many of the serials of this period.

Heartily recommended for those who like this genre.
