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*.
