Christopher Lee returns as Sax Rohmer's insidious Asian villain Fu Manchu for the second of his five vehicles. This time Fu Manchu and his army of henchmen are kidnaping the daughters of prominent scientists and taking them to his remote island headquarters.

Sir Dennis Nayland Smith:
You have nothing to celebrate, Fu Manchu. The arms conference is safe. You are beaten.
That is where you are wrong, Commissioner. In a few moments there will be no arms conference.
Sir Dennis Nayland Smith:
You will release that girl now and order your men to line up over there. I will count three before I fire. One... two...
Send her to the snakes!

This second of five Fu Manchu movies with Christopher Lee is an action-packed thriller. Fu is trying to (what else) conquer the world, this time using massive amounts of electricity to create a death ray. Fu is kidnapping the wives/daughters of scientists to force them to help him. Recalcitrant scientists are quickly dispatched in grisly, typically Fu Manchu fashion. Their daughters don't fare to well either. Lee is great (as usual) as the fiendish Fu, the supporting cast is good, the girls are gorgeous and the script is pretty good for this type of thing. This might be the best entry in the series. My "B" Movie Meter: 8* out of 10*.
