The amazing super sleuth is back and he's here to solve another crime. In "Charlie Chan and The Curse of the Dragon Queen", Mr. Chan(Peter Ustinov) come out of retirement to help his bumbling son Lee (Richard Hatch, "Battlestar Galactica") solve a murder in San Francisco. The cause of the crime is a adversary Chan dealt with years earlier: The Dragon Queen(Angie Dickison). This woman would strike where ever the family goes. Her "curse" would bear misery to anyone who crosses her. However, when the police caught her again, someone else was causing the problems, and the Dragon Queen was just a distraction to the real culprit. The music was hilarious, and very entertaining at the same time. Peter Ustinov did well playing Asian. Richard Hatch was very funny in the movie playing a clumsy detective, a scene he would never do when he was on BS. Michelle Pfiffer was excellent as well. This movie was worth the watch, the trailer was a gem! 4.5 out of 5 stars!
