Storyline

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. Instead of asking for ransom, Fu demands that the fathers help him to build a death ray, which he intends to use to take over the world. But Fu's archenemy, Nayland Smith of Scotland Yard, is determined not to let that happen... Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Fu Fun
5 April 2014 | by (The Merry Olde Island of Long) – See all my reviews

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*.
