Critic Reviews for The Face of Fu Manchu

All Critics (3)

The ultra-sophisticate may find the broad melodramatic flourishes and the heroics unacceptable, but this isn't a film for the ultra-sophisticate.

Jan 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Resourcefully directed and inventively scripted, The Face of Fu Manchu is a first-class thriller, weakened only by some rather summary characterisation, and a grandiose but flurried ending.

Christopher Lee is a trip playing the notorious Chinese villain Fu Manchu.
