The story takes place in Africa, but all of the elephants, except those seen in brief snippets of archive footage, are Indian, not African; in some of the sequences, obviously lifted out of previous films, large, artificial ears have been attached to the Indian elephants to make them look more like their African cousins, but the results are nothing more than ludicrous.

An enjoyable jungle adventure
28 May 2002 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I was lucky to get hold of a copy of this movie as it is quite hard to get hold of, as are all of the Bomba movies.

In this one, some illegal poachers arrive in the jungle and kill an elephant. After killing their leader, they try and kill more elephants but Bomba tries to stop them and eventually succeeds by getting a heard of elephants to trample them to death.

Johnny Sheffield plays Bomba once again and takes a good part. A lot of the scenes involving the elephants running is stock footage I think. Bomba also has a young lady who fancies him in this movie. She is learning him to read.

I enjoyed watching this movie. Watch it if you are lucky enough to get the chance.

Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
