Jess Franco's remake of his very own 007 Operation Jamaique is a film that offers quite a bit but I must admit that the story lost me. I'm not sure if it was the horrid English dubbing or what but I could never really catch on to what was going on for the most part. The film deals with drug smugglers, a Inspector (Paul Muller) and a stripper (Lina Romay) who is working undercover. Even though I wasn't able to follow the story, there's still quite a bit here that makes the film worth at least one viewing. For starters, there's a very steamy and erotic sex scene between Romay and Alice Arno, which ranks among Franco's best scenes of this type. Franco can open himself up to being bashed quite a bit but when it comes time to do an erotic scene then no one can top him. The highlight of the film has to be a sequence where Romay, working as the stripper, tries to get a nude statue aroused by licking around his certain areas. I think this is the greatest period for Romay and she turns in a good performance but it's certainly her beauty that takes over and delivers the goods. Daniel White's brilliant music score is the best thing about the movie and I think it ranks right up there with the best work of his career.
