Audience Reviews for Charlie Chan in the Secret Service
A detective without curiosity is like a glass eye and key hole...no good. Charlie Chan is an agent for the secret service that hoped to go on a trip with his children when a huge case falls in his lap. He needs to solve a murder of another agent and his children find him in the field. Chan and his family work together to solve the case. "Did Confucius say that, pop?" "No. I say that." Phil Rosen, director of Call of the Jungle, the Jade Mask, Spooks Run Wild, Paper Bullets, Murder by Invitation, the Deadly Game, and Phantom of Chinatown, delivers Charlie Chan in The Secret Service. The storyline for this picture is classic murder mystery with witty one-liners and some entertaining character interactions. The cast delivers entertaining performances and includes Sidney Toller, Mantan Moreland, Benson Fong, and George Lewis. "Mr. Chang, what are they saying?" "All Chinese to me." I recently found this on Netflix and added it to my wish list. This was entertaining and fun to watch unfold. There is a lot of cliché comedy in this, but I still laughed here and there. This is only worth seeing if you are a fan of the classics. "Always someone trying to stick fly in ointment." Grade: C
Better than average Charlie Chan entry to the film series. Montan Moreland is great. Good story. Short, sweet and always interesting.
