Sad, sad end to Peter Sellers' great movie career. Lackluster at best.

Another movie that wastes Sellers.

For the sake of the late, great, brilliant Peter Sellers, let's all just forget this movie even exists.

Improves with age and comparison to newer junk

Audience Reviews for The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu

½

This has two things going for it. Fu Manchu and Peter Sellers. Unfortunately that's not enough to rescue this mess. Worth a look see if you're a completist for either of the two aforementioned factors.
