An Elephant's Journey is a 2017 adventure film directed by Richard Boddington. The film stars Elizabeth Hurley, Sam Ashe Arnold, and Tertius Meintjes. The movie tells the story of a 14-year-old boy named Phoenix who teams up with an elephant named Indlovu to journey through the African wilderness in search of his father's stolen elephant.

The film opens with Phoenix (Sam Ashe Arnold) and his mother arriving in Africa to visit Phoenix's father who is a wildlife ranger. Phoenix's father works in a wildlife reserve and has a unique bond with an elephant named Indlovu. However, Phoenix's father finds himself in a perilous situation when a gang of poachers steals Indlovu and his baby elephant. Phoenix's father tries to stop the poachers, but he is shot and left for dead in the wilderness.

After learning of his father's predicament, Phoenix sets out with a wounded Indlovu to find his father and rescue the baby elephant. Along the way, Phoenix and Indlovu face numerous dangers and obstacles. They must navigate through the harsh African wilderness, avoid poachers, and fend off dangerous animals like lions and hyenas.

Despite the odds against them, Phoenix and Indlovu develop a special bond and show incredible resilience on their journey. They encounter a group of local villagers who are also affected by the poachers and join forces to stop them. Together, they risk their lives to save the stolen elephants and bring the evil poachers to justice.

The film's standout performances come from Sam Ashe Arnold as Phoenix and Elizabeth Hurley as the villainous poacher Kayla. Arnold portrays Phoenix as a determined young boy with a heart full of courage and love for the animals. He showcases a range of emotions throughout the film, from grief and sadness to bravery and determination.

Elizabeth Hurley's Kayla is a ruthless poacher who stops at nothing to get what she wants. She is a cold-hearted villain who will do anything to make a profit, even if it means killing innocent animals. Hurley is chilling in her portrayal of Kayla and makes her a formidable foe for Phoenix and Indlovu.

Tertius Meintjes also delivers a solid performance as Phoenix's father. Although he does not have much screen time, Meintjes portrays his character's love and dedication towards the elephants with sincerity and authenticity.

Richard Boddington's direction, combined with stunning cinematography by Stephen Chandler Whitehead, captures the beauty of the African wilderness and showcases the majestic elephants in their natural habitat. The film's score, composed by Graeme Coleman, adds to the excitement and emotion of the film and creates a poignant and uplifting finale.

In conclusion, An Elephant's Journey is a heartwarming and inspiring film that highlights the bond between humans and animals.
