Critic Reviews for The Fatal Hour
Audience Reviews for The Fatal Hour
Boris Karloff, who is laughably casted as a Chinese detective, is fine but even he can't save this generic-as-hell whodunit. For mystery buffs only.
"Chinese copper" Mr. Wong (Boris Karloff) follows the trail of a dead cop and uncovers a smuggling ring in San Francisco. Drained of personality, Karloff stars (?) as a Chinese (?) detective with minimal deductive powers; fortunately, he's given a generic mystery to solve in this insulting 3rd generation Charlie Chan ripoff.
Of the two Mr Wong Movies I have seen, this one is the lowest rated, noticed I didn't say the worst, its not that bad, it just kind of drags out. Guess back in the day it kept our elders on the edge of there seat.
