Lax African adventure...
28 January 2012 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Bomba the Jungle Boy smells a rat when a rifle-happy team of filmmakers invades the African jungle to shoot a moving picture--and, Bomba fears, to shoot innocent wildlife as well. Turns out one member of the nefarious troupe has robbed a local guide of his diamonds and killed him, so a drum warning is played for Bomba to keep the unit preoccupied until the police arrive. Thoroughly routine low-budget adventure, the first "Bomba" episode to bear the Allied Artists distribution logo, is sluggishly-paced, with much of the action taking place via stock footage. Johnny Sheffield's Bomba wrestles (clumsily) with a panther and a lion, while the requisite 'pretty girl' (Barbara Bestar) wrestles with the hokey dialogue. *1/2 from ****
