Typical entry into the Hollywood "inscrutable Asian as wily detective" cliché that cheats the audience by keeping the clues from us until the reveal at the end: only the detective noticed!!! Still, its a fun genre, while there are no surprises (at least not anymore).

"...his death is the warning we promised..." The fourth Mr. Moto film has a fantastic set-up: Peter Lorre worms his way into England's League of Assassins after a daring incognito Devil's Island prison escape. Awesome. Unfortunately, like a lot of entries in the series, Moto himself gets lost in a barrage of bland actors and characters. When Lorree is jujitsuing it up, it is fantastic fun. But when the boring white folks are talkin' it's a snoozefest. VF.

An entertaining movie with a good story. Peter Lorre is so awesome as Mr. Moto.

This entry in the Moto series starts off like gangbusters with an escape from Devil's Island (featuring shooting from the world's worst shots!). Moto has gone deep under cover as the convict Ito to infiltrate the League of Assassins. Things slow up quite a bit after the opening and even more when Peter Lorre is not on camera and the love story with Mary McGuire and Henry Wilcoxon come on (accompanied by Erik Rhodes in an almost painfully swishy performance). Things pick up again and there's some good action when Moto returns, but the movie is uneven at best.

Fine entry in the Mr. Moto series, short and suspenseful with a great screenplay and a solid mystery. Well performed. Peter Lorre is terrific.

Mr. Moto heads for London, this time to catch a league of assassins. There's some great cinematography to be seen on the foggy streets and the ending has a great set piece (plus a few jokes at the expense of Scotland Yard). A standard Moto adventure.
