Characters. The characters in this film have a lot more to them and the film spends more time developing a back story and motivation.
Peril. This entry into the franchise actual has peril and times when you wonder if things will work out.

What I Would Like To Have Seen
I wish the dialogue were a little more natural, but that is more a product of its time than a complaint against the filmmakers.
Bomba and the Jungle Girl is a 1952 live-action film based on the series of Bomba, The Jungle Boy novels by Roy Rockwood. This film had a really good story with several twists, some not completely obvious. The fighting was more intense than previous films, and the pacing was fairly quick with a decent sense of peril. The characters in this film have a lot more to them than most films from this era, and the film spends time developing a back story and motivation for all the major characters. Overall, I enjoyed the film. I give it 4.5 out of 5 Boxes of Popcorn.
