Summary: Some two hundred years from now, the MAPPO Corporation breeds human/animal hybrids from numerous African animal species including Warthogs, Elephants, Camels, Zebras, Rhinos, Hippos, Giraffes, Hyenas and Crocodiles by implanting embryos into the wombs of kidnapped local women who are disposed of after giving birth. Upon discovering these experiments, the United Nations send in an army to storm MAPPO's Secret base. The Elephantmen are rehabilitated and released to establish their own lives in the outside world where they are generally treated with distrust and horror from humans. They were genetically engineered to be giant, super-human weapons of mass destruction, but what they are now is wounded animals who, despite their differences and origins, must live in the world of man.

My rating: 9/10.
