Bomba number 3:

Pre-teen David (Tommy Ivo) is the new best friend of Bomba jungle boy (Johnny Sheffield) - but his parents (Donald Woods, Marjorie Lords) even denie Bomba's existence - until David's nanny Nona (Elena Verdugo) follows him into the jungle, sees David actually playing with Bomba, and brings one of Bomba's knives back to David's parents as proof of Bomba's existence. At the time, Professor Langley (Grandon Rhodes) pays David's parents a visit with his two assistants Barton (John Ridgely) and Higgins (Don C.Harvey), and he examines the knife and figures it belongs to a lost civilisation, the remains of which are buried at a lost volcano - and obviously David knows the location of that volcano, but won't tell it because he has promised Bomba. This, Langley and David's parents accept, and even acknowledge the existence of Bomba, but still they want to find the lost volcano. Barton and Higgins meanwhile get hold of David and Nona and want to force David to lead them to the volcano, even at gunpoint - and David reluctantly gives in.

Bomba soon notices that David has been kidnapped and alarms David's parents. The first to catch up with the kidnappers is Professor Langley, but they gun him down in cold blood.

Finally the kidnappers make it to the volcano with all the others closing in ... but the volcano is also about to break out, and soon everybody is surrounded by hot molten lava, and Bomba is the only one who can bring them to safety - but Barton and Higgins are overcome by greed when they discover the treasures of the lost civilisation and are ultimately killed by the volcano while Bomba manages to save David, his parents and Nona.

 

Basically nothing more than a cheap jungle adventure with not always convincing sets (especially some painted backgrounds of Africa's vast horizons - on which the actors occasionaly cast shadows), a very limited cast and a rather formulaic storyline. The good thing is that the film hardly at all relies on unconvincingly inserted jungle footage or even on funny jungle animals as such. The bad thing is that the film revolves around a little boy, and child actors in general can be at times rather annoying with this one being no exception while child characters usually dumb down the plot a bit, with again this one being no exception. What remains is a rather childish jungle film and not one of the better films of the Bomba series.
