Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The second Fu Manchu in the series is weaker than the original The Face of Fu Manchu, but still enjoyable hokum. Rated: B- Oct 13, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member just ok sequel crime drama Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A decent sequel that ultimately sits very well amongst the full series of films made with Christopher Lee in the title role. Viewed as a single film it's a run-of-the-mill megalomaniac fantasy. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member So-so sequel. Not as good as 'The Face of Fu Manchu', but there are still lots of fun set pieces. And while it's kind of stupid having a white actor play an asian character, Lee does a good job in the role. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review bill t Not a BAD sequel to the first Christopher Lee Fu Manchu movie. At least the protagonist is more believable, but, amazingly, just like the first movie, Manchu has backed himself up with a lot of wimpy Asian henchmen, who are no match for the Heroic British Policemen! Sometimes 5 henchmen against 1 Policeman, guess who wins? Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Passable sequel with Christopher Lee as megalomaniac and sadist Chinese--Mediocre!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I have to be honest here and say that I haven't seen any of the films in the Fu Manchu series, and being that this is a sequel, it's probably not the best place to start because it seems to be following a story of sorts. Christopher Lee stars in The Brides of Fu Manchu, which picks up where the previous film The Face of Fu Manchu left off. It apparently was successful enough to warrant a set of sequels and I guess it doesn't really matter what order you watch them in. I'm assuming they're all pretty much the same. Like I said, I haven't seen the others, but this isn't terribly impressive, nor is it all that entertaining. It's quite boring actually, but it does have Christopher Lee in Asian make-up, some beautiful young ladies and lots of Karate and Judo from not just the bad guys but the good guys too. Apparently if you fight in one of these movies, you automatically know how to Judo chop. It reminded me a lot of early Bond movies in that regard. So I guess in some sick, twisted and demented sort of way it has some watchability to it, but only for the reasons that I mentioned. It's not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination, but I am curious to see the rest of the films in the series just to see where it goes from here. It won't get any better, I'm sure.
