CODE 7…VICTIM5 and MOZAMBIQUE REVIEWED
“Code 7…Victim 5” is the first two Colonial Adventures directed by Robert Lynn in 1964. The forced attempt at turning these British B movies into spy romps always felt forced. But, it evokes this weird Indiana Jones style blend. There’s espionage, plane action and a push for exotic locales. The entire film is a hunt for a treasure found in a random photo. The film is beautiful shot by Nicolas Roeg and it should entertain your parents.
“Mozambique” follows a pilot who tries to make his way through Apartheid era South Africa. What we get is a story about drug smuggling, kidnapping and trying to sleep with a lounge singer. Forget the Corman comparisons with the first movie, this one feels like a straight Cannon film. It’s just a shame that cult British cinema of the early to mid 1960s didn’t spice things up with nudity.
