A standard Bomba adventure.
21 June 2010 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

This little feature is not better or worse than the other Bomba movies. I think they were made for sunny - or rainy - Sunday afternoons. All directed by Ford Beebe, they are all the same. When you have seen one, you have seen all of them. But they are not charmless.

I won't explain the topic of this one, it is already exposed in the tag line. I only write this comment because this film has not been commented yet. That's all.

If you watch all Bomba features in a row, you'll forget this one. For sure. I recommend to see the Bomba films one each week. That's the best to appreciate them.
