Jeremy James Kissner,
Although the screen was filled with elephants here and there, that is the best part of the movie. Seeing elephants in their natural surroundings was worth seeing. However, the plot line was pretty lame. Although, fairly well acted, none of the characters had much depth and were not developed much as the movie moved along.
While the movie might entertain small children who would be amazed by the elephant action, most adults would feel like they had seen this story too many times before. a trusted person is dealing from the bottom of the deck but gets caught in the end.
Watchable, but have a kid or two around if you do. They'll have a better time than you, but you might have fun watching them enjoy the pachyderm action.
