Trivia

Sixteen months before the movie's release, on June 28, 1965, the Pan Am Boeing 707 (registration: N761PA) that Jeffrey Hunter is seen leaving from during the opening credits had an engine explode just after taking off from San Francisco. The uncontained engine explosion caused a fire, a fuel tank explosion and one wing partially separated. The plane made an emergency landing at Travis Air Force Base and there were no injuries.

Lesson # 9: you don't have to go out of your way to see this one.
6 December 2017 | by Hey_SwedenSee all my reviews

The swinging 60s strike again in this mildly - make that VERY mildly - amusing espionage nonsense about a supposedly top notch intelligence agent, Justin Power (Jeffrey Hunter, "The Searchers") who is partnered with a Chinese-American female agent, "Kitty" (France Nuyen, "South Pacific"). Their mission is to foil a criminal organization dubbed The Dragons, which are headed by wheelchair-bound "Big Buddha" (Harold "Oddjob" Sakata, who is dubbed by Paul Frees). The Dragons plan to detonate a bomb in the City of Angels, but the good guys have a secret weapon: a time travel device that can be worn like a belt!

"Dimension 5" is low-tech and minor league, and it's also pretty short on action. Therefore, it's never particularly exciting, but it still has its moments. The give and take between our hero and heroine is enjoyable enough; she's Americanized enough to prefer steak and potatoes to more traditional Asian dishes. He's confident and has a fair amount of swagger. That said, neither of them are THAT smart - he needs to be saved more than once, and at the end, when she has the villain dead to rights, she doesn't kill him when she has the chance. Hunter and Nuyen are both very good looking, which should help to make their characters palatable nevertheless.

They're assisted by a fairly good bunch of supporting actors, including Donald Woods ("The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms"), Robert Ito ('Quincy M.E.'), Jon Lormer ("Creepshow"), Bill Walker ("The Long, Hot Summer"), Tad Horino ("Galaxina"), and Robert Phillips ("The Dirty Dozen"). The filmmaking isn't overly slick but it's passable; this was made by many of the same people behind the previous time travel sci-fi flick, "Cyborg 2087", including director Franklin Adreon.

A watchable, forgettable diversion for an hour and a half.

Five out of 10.
