Storyline

ZAMBO is king of the jungle! Deep in the jungles of central Africa, a lone figure moves swiftly through the trees. Often heard, sometimes seen, but never forgotten, the legend of ZAMBO is about to become real! In another life he was framed for a murder he didn't commit and left to rot in a filthy African prison, only to deftly escape into the wilderness. Friend to both man and animal, Zambo selflessly protects the African people from the oppressive forces of the outside world. As the legend of Zambo becomes too big to ignore, an expedition led by explorers Professor Woodworth, Perkins, and Juanez presents Zambo with his greatest fear: discovery. With only his strength, wits, and the help of the jungle itself, Zambo is in for the fight of his life!

For Brad Harris completists only...
14 May 2020 | by brycedavidzonSee all my reviews

A Tarzan-like movie with Brad Harris playing a man who's on the lam from the law and ends up being a buff hero living in the jungle, worshipped by local tribesmen. The story is non-existent. It's just another Brad's neverending attempts to continue to do what he does best: hitting people, action scenes and showing off his body. The camera often focuses on his buff (but aging) physique. In one shot, his right pec, popping out of his skimpy costume, is centered directly in the frame. If you enjoy Brad's physique, you'll enjoy this as its got nothing else going for it. The movie also has former PEPLUM stars like Daniele Vargas and Raf Baldassarre in it. There were several Tarzan-like movies made during the late 1960s, early 1970s, with former PEPLUM stars stranded and left to do such forgettable productions. I like Brad's PEPLUM movies but the movies he made after the genre died are mostly dreary and this one is no exception.
