Female lawyer who is soft on crime learns better
9 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Code of Hunting" (1983) to my mind is not as good a movie as the rating of 6.4 and as the user reviews suggest. It makes one main point and it does so predictably, slowly and not fully believably. It seems that expectations for the movie were that it would be either exploitation or sleaze or some combination of both, so that when the film actually had some dramatic merit the viewers were pleasantly surprised and rated it as about average. In addition, the movie has been touted as rare, which it may well be. Whether or not, these guesses about mass psychology are right or wrong, I found the movie a tedious affair. It did have an explicit and violent ending, of which part was very darkly filmed and hard to see.

The story is about a female lawyer (Assumpta Serna) who is soft on crime, a bleeding heart liberal who blames society for criminality and sees criminals as victims. Another justice official tells her this explicitly and that she's idealistic. As luck would have it, her car is stolen by some no-good-nik young male adult thieves, led by Luis Hostalot. He does a good job as the loud, bossy, impulsive and brutal leader of a small gang. These thieves then raid the hideaway chalet of Serna, her husband and children. In the process of stealing such valuables as stereo equipment, her husband is slain in a struggle. She sees this as an accident! She doesn't see it as any kind of manslaughter or aggravated assault or negligent homicide. But at any rate, her family life drags on as do the lives of the gang members, leading up to another confrontation.
