Our Score
The first and best of Christopher Lee's portrayals of mystery writer Sax Rohmer's insidious East-Asian arch villain. Here he plans to conquer the world with a poison gas invented by a German professor held prisoner in his secret HQ under the Thames very handy for those Chinese water tortures. Propelled by an eerie opening, this atmospheric comic strip fantasy is skilfully assembled, and Nigel Green is superb as Fu Manchu's Scotland Yard nemesis, Nayland Smith.


A Chinese criminal mastermind tries to take over the London underworld with a dastardly attack on an English village. Thriller, starring Christopher Lee and Nigel Green.
