News & Interviews for Charlie Chan At The Wax Museum
Critic Reviews for Charlie Chan At The Wax Museum
Typical Toler take on Chan.
Fairly effective, but not one of the best series entries
If you disregard all the holes in the story, then you should find this one to be a refreshing thriller.
Audience Reviews for Charlie Chan At The Wax Museum
The murderer is never the point of these films, it's watching the inscrutable Chan (and son) on the chase, defying the odds while keeping the fun element a going concern. Here all concerned ramble about in a ooooo-scary wax museum. By the time the murderer is revealed, taken away by the late arriving police, it hardly matters anyway. That's why they made so many of these ... these Chinese (while having zero to do with anything actually Chinese) hamburgers. I wonder how they'd remake one of these nowadays?
This is a very enjoyable Charlie Chan film, loaded with mystery and suspense. A killer is loose in the wax museum, but who is it. Film does a good job of making everyone a suspect. With all the mystery and suspense comes some comedy as usual, Sidney Toler does a great job with his sayings. If I was going to see one Chan movie it would be this one. Worth 3 1/2 stars
Above average Charlie Chan entry, Sidney Toler makes a great Chan. Very Typical of the Chan films, fun, suspenseful, amusing and very entertaining.
