Sir Dennis Nayland Smith:
You have nothing to celebrate, Fu Manchu. The arms conference is safe. You are beaten.
That is where you are wrong, Commissioner. In a few moments there will be no arms conference.

When originally released theatrically in the UK, the BBFC made cuts to secure a 'U' rating (with cuts). All cuts were waived in 1991 when the film was granted a 'U' certificate for home video. See more »
"The Brides of Fu Manchu" is the second of five Fu Manchu movies produced by Harry Alan Towers and starring Christopher Lee.The film is definitely the most entertaining of all the Fu Manchu films.The production values are top notch and the film is well-directed and acted.This time Fu Manchu wants to conquer the world("In a few moments,the entire world will capitulate to me.This is the destiny of Fu Manchu."-Fu Manchu).Fu Manchu's new evil plan is to send explosive energy via sound waves to small receivers placed in various cities throughout the world.It's up to Nayland Smith(Douglas Wilmer)to stop him...Anyway I enjoyed this film and you should too,if you like British horror/crime cinema.All the actresses starring in it are beautiful,especially Tsai Chin,the evil daughter of Fu Manchu.Fu Manchu returns a year later in "The Vengeance of Fu Manchu"(1967).
