Sellers again with his immortal personage and the habitual secondaries
26 June 2006 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The French connection(ringleader is Robert Loggia) proposes kill Inspector Clouseau(Sellers) to prove the American Mafia(ringleader is Paul Stewart)what gets importance.Bumbling Clouseau is allegedly killed but he secretly looks for the murder and investigates incognito.He along with the mobster's secretary(Dyan Cannon) travel to Hong Kong where he'll find supposedly his killers.

This release is the fifth part of series and has the inept and bungler Inspector Clouseau from French Surete in the last entry by the late Peter Sellers though he would follow playing but with outtakes in films as¨Trail of the Pink Panther¨. The picture contains hilarious,fresh and diverting moments and never slowdown.The movie has the usual struggles with Kato(Burt Kwouk) and another fighting Kung-Fu style fitting the time(Bruce Lee's operation dragon and chop-socky sub-genre).Inexplicably appears Chief Inspector Dreyfus(Herbert Lom) who was been disintegrated by laser-ray machine in previous film(Pink Panther strikes again),besides appear another customary actors series as Andre Maranne,Graham Stark and known British secondaries as Douglas Wilmer,Ferdy Mayne, Alfie Bass and a Hammer scream girl: Valerie Leon.Excellent opening and ending cartoon titles cartoon by DePaite and Freleng,they will make the successful TV Pink Panther episodes. The flick will like to Pink Panther series enthusiastic and Peter Sellers fans.The film gets memorable occasions for the fun and entertainment.
