An ex-cop and divorce lawyer team up with a gangster to clear their names after getting involved in a dirty money scheme led by a vicious money launderer, who plans to expand his business and wipe out anyone who stands in his way.
Chinese-American detective Charlie Chan is called in to help solve baffling cases, aided by his #1 son. The first five episodes were filmed in the US, then production switched to the UK for the rest of the series.
A young lady and her father are threatened by a gang named the Five Fingers. Private eye Charlie comes to the rescue. A movie with a couple of funny moments (mostly to Charlie's credit) and a great fight scene with Cynthia Khan and a gangster hanging from the scaffolding of a construction site with one hand or one leg and somehow still managing to continue the fight! The problem is the middle part of the film where most of the time is spent talking about the father and if he should marry again. After a speedy beginning, the movie is losing so much drive in the middle that it is a bit hard to sit through, but the final action sequences made it worthwhile still. Voted 5/10.
