Code 7, Victim 5 720p Movies
When a millionaires valet is murdered he hires a detective to discover by who and why his valet was killed, leading to connections of the nazi sort!
Producer Towers was very big on stories in which people are picked off, one after the other. (He produced screen versions of Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians" three times!) While this film isn't exactly in the same vein, it does feature, as part of its plot line, five men who are connected by an event during the war being killed, one at a time (the first one being during the war.) Former "Tarzan" Barker plays a hired detective, placed in charge by Rilla of finding out who is behind the slayings before Rilla's turn comes about. As he pokes around South Africa trying to uncover the killer's identity, he is allied with a local police inspector (Fraser) and distracted by two very curvy and very big-haired ladies. Smyrner is Rilla's blonde, Danish assistant and Vendell is his brunette adoptive daughter. Barker is unable to figure out the mystery or to keep the body count at bay until all is revealed at the end in a fairly surprising finale. Barker is still fit and unbelievably tan here, though obviously older than when he swung from the vines and cavorted with his one-time wife Lana Turner. He gives a decent performance, doing a large amount of his own stunts and only looking awkward or in any way foolish when he is mired in some tentative love scenes with the ladies. It's asking a lot of the audience to believe that Fraser is the "chick magnet" that he's portrayed to be here. There's nothing wrong with his acting, but that aspect of his character is ludicrous with Fraser in the role unless he has about 12 undisclosed secrets no one knows about. Smyrner is pretty weak. Her lines (like many peoples' in this international cast) aren't always completely discernible and she's content to smile prettily rather than display any significant emotion in her scenes. Vendell has the spicier role, though she's not exactly amazing either. Both gals show off some serious curves (and use enough hairspray that they should have their own ozone hole named after them!) The setting of Capetown is amply exploited with some really interesting locations and varieties of terrain. There doesn't appear to be much, if any, rear projection here. The cinematography (by no less than Nicholas Roeg!) manages to capture the local color in a reasonably captivating way, especially in a vertigo-inducing scene atop a jagged cliff. The music has a bouncy, swingy feel to it that may annoy as many viewers as it pleases, depending on one's taste. In this relatively tame film, there is one awfully bloody death scene that also includes an actor mumbling a long stream of last words that, unfortunately, reveal aspects of the plot, but good luck understanding him! The revelation of the killer is, thankfully, a bit less obvious than it seems as if it's going to be and that helps make the film better that it could have been. As it stands, it's a so-so mystery whose chief assets are the strong arms and sun-kissed smile of Barker and the interesting location work.
Woeful title aside, CODE 7, VICTIM 5 is a would-be, South African-set detective story from prolific B-movie producer Harry Alan Towers, who also wrote the thing under his 'Peter Welbeck' pseudonym. It stars man-of-the-moment Lex Barker as a private eye who's commissioned to investigate a mysterious murder among the upper crust in South Africa.
The best - and only good thing - about the movie is the location photography, captured in stunning detail by famed cinematographer Nicholas Roeg. This is a sunny, great-looking movie which allows you to see plenty of areas of the country usually missing in films; those drives around Table Mountain are particularly fine. A shame then, that the rest of the film is so sloppy.
The worst thing is undoubtedly Towers' script, which is mundane to say the least. Despite a few shoehorned-in fight scenes, this is dull, by-the-numbers stuff in which little happens to lift the story out of its lethargic gloom. Barker tours the country for a while, indulges in some light romance with a string of Euro-crumpet in scenes reminiscent of a Connery Bond flick, and finally tackles the villain whose identity is revealed at the climax.
The cast put in strictly ordinary performances and Barker fails to show even an ounce of charisma, so you end up wondering why was such a star of his day. He looks a little like a young Stephen Baldwin to me. Some of the action sequences are okay, like an impressive car chase early on, but for the most part this is a chore and rightly forgotten.
