Critic Reviews for The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

The movie has some good moments (what Peter Sellers comedy could not have?), but the story never really involves us.

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

Feb 17, 2008 | Rating: 2/5

Another movie that wastes Sellers.

Aug 21, 2003 | Rating: 2/5

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

Jul 26, 2002 | Rating: 1/5

Improves with age and comparison to newer junk
