Die Rache des Dr. Fu Man Chu (1967)67K
Die Rache des Dr. Fu Man Chu: Directed by Jeremy Summers. With Christopher Lee, Tony Ferrer, Tsai Chin, Douglas Wilmer. In his remote Asian hideaway, the evil Fu Manchu plots the death and discredit of his archrival, Inspector Nayland Smith of Scotland Yard, as the first step in his plan to become leader of the world’s most terrible criminals.
“In the 60u0026#39;s series of five Fu Manchu movies made by Cristhoper Lee as the Chinese fiend, this is the one in the middle, without the direction of Don Sharp (replaced by Jeremy Summers) who made the better two entries. Itu0026#39;s still an interesting movie, Fu Manchu tries to ruin his enemy reputation by replacing him with a killer lookalike (done with a complicated facial surgery) and, as usual, planning world domination as the boss of a new international organization. Douglas Wilmer shines as Nayland Smith or the zombie-like killer, Lee is perfect as usual and the always reliable Howard Marion Crawford as Dr. Petrie (a character clearly inspired by Conan Doyleu0026#39;s Dr. Watson) got some good moments too. Sadly, after u0026quot;Vengeanceu0026quot; trashy Spanish director Jesus Franco took the series for the last two film, the less interesting entries by far.”
