New York private eye Steve Martin comes to South Africa to try and solve the murder of the right hand man of wealthy mineowner Wexler (Walter Rilla), as Wexler is convinced the murderers of his employee are after him as well. However, he refuses to tell Martin why he thinks so, and he also refuses to collaborate with the police, claiming police inspector Lean (Ronald Fraser) is nothing but a fool - even though he has found quite a few traces, all connected to a photograph shot 20 years ago, when Wexler and his right-hand-man were both prisoners of war. Martin tracks down the other men in the photo and the photographer, but they're all killed before his very eyes. Only one man he cannot track down, an Italian who is said to have killed himself 20 years ago, killed himself because Wexler betrayed his trust. But it's said he had a kid ...

Martin and Lean try to track down the kid of the Italian and soon suspect it to be Wexler's foster daughter (Véronique Vendell) - until the true baddie turns out to be not her but her fiancé (Dietmar Schönherr), who actually manages to shoot Wexler dead before Martin's very eyes. Martin picks up pursuit though, and the chase ends on a mountain top, with the killer eventually falling off a cliff to his death, despite Martin's attempt to save him.

Martin by the way gets the girl - Wexler's pretty secretary (Ann Smyrner) - in the end.

 

A beautifully shot thriller set in pittoresque landscapes, with quite a bit well-staged action (including an ostrich attack), a few fine performances (including one of Lex Barker's better ones) and quite a few sexy ladies cannot really make this film anything more than routine. Basically, the film lacks tension and suspense, and even if the plot is well-structured to make the killer a plausible but hard-to-guess one, the mystery as such seems to kind of lack urgency.

That's not to say Code 7, Victim 5 is a bad movie, it's very ok routine genre entertainment - but with everything the film has going for it, it could have done with a better script.
