Critic Reviews for The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu
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
Peter Sellers plays the titular character, Fu Manchu, a Chinese evil genius who is in the process of stealing all the world's largest diamonds. It's 1933 and Fu Manchu is 168 years old, and uses the diamonds to create an elixir to keep him alive. Some funny, rather offensive things wouldn't make it in a Hollywood film nowadays, but overall slow and uneven.
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.
