Goofs

When Maria Lieberson is branded by Fu Manchu's henchman, the henchman first spits on the supposedly red-hot branding iron, but no steam or smoke rises from the iron. Then, in the brief shot where he pulls the iron back from her flesh, her skin is clearly unmarked. Then, in the following shot, Maria's back shows a red welt from the branding iron, but it is much larger than would have been made by the iron used. See more »

The beginning of the end
30 November 2006 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

In the 60's series of five Fu Manchu movies made by Cristhoper Lee as the Chinese fiend, this is the one in the middle, without the direction of Don Sharp (replaced by Jeremy Summers) who made the better two entries. It's still an interesting movie, Fu Manchu tries to ruin his enemy reputation by replacing him with a killer lookalike (done with a complicated facial surgery) and, as usual, planning world domination as the boss of a new international organization. Douglas Wilmer shines as Nayland Smith or the zombie-like killer, Lee is perfect as usual and the always reliable Howard Marion Crawford as Dr. Petrie (a character clearly inspired by Conan Doyle's Dr. Watson) got some good moments too. Sadly, after "Vengeance" trashy Spanish director Jesus Franco took the series for the last two film, the less interesting entries by far.
