Editorial Reviews

The world is their chessboard. In the Face of Fu Manchu and The Brides of Fu Manchu, murderson Fu Manchu and Scotland Yard’s Nayland Smith matches moves like grand masters. But now the wily crimelord is ready to checkmate his resolute foe. He’ll create killer clones to take the place of leading law officials – and the first will look exactly like Nayland Smith! Christopher Lee returns in the title role in this film that proudly continues a suspenseful tradition. The Vengeance of Fu Manchu “perfectly mirrors the tone and technique of the old thrillers without one smirk or self-conscious bow to modern wiseacres” (Howard Thompson, The New York Times). Vengeance is a work of infinite pleasure for Fu Manchu. How infinitely miserable he will be if Smith somehow outwits him!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fu's Insomnia Master Plan October 5, 2012
Format:DVD
Warner Archive releases the third Christopher Lee/Fu Manchu excursion Director Jeremy Summers's 'THE VENGEANCE OF FU MANCHU'- 1967 in its first 1.85 DVD-R digital release in this country. The second outing Director Don Sharp's 'THE BRIDES OF FU MANCHU'- 1966 was released by MGM in its Midnight Madness series a few years back so this marks the only one left in the series to be released. Having formed a team with Producer Harry Allan Towers who would produce the entire Fu Manchu series and other films under the direction of Jess Franco, Lee would just be utilized for his name drawing power as he steadily would be given declining scripts and cheap production values making the role a parody of what it once was. Here we have actor Douglas Wilmer in his second outing as Sir Nayland Smith and brilliant German actor Horst Frank who graced many Spaghetti Westerns and Euro-thrillers as Rudy in a deliciously evil performance. Towers includes his wife actress Maria Rohm who appeared in all of his productions and is just required to bring eye candy to the proceedings with her beauty. There is also a blink or you'll miss cameo by actor Peter Carsten who played villainous roles throughout the sixties including a standout performance in Director Jack Cardiff's 'DARK OF THE SUN'- 1968. The story involves making a doppelganger of Nayland Smith which starts getting long in the tooth before its 91 minute running time is over with and the production benefits from awesome authentic locations which would be few and far between in Fu's last two outings. Not a bad way to spend a nostalgic Saturday afternoon, it gives the opportunity for fans to see the underrated acting ability of actress Tsai Chin as Fu's loyal daughter. She commands the screen in every scene she's in and along with Lee, elevates the film far higher than it deserves.

Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Much like his ongoing appearances as Count Dracula, Christopher Lee, the star of many horror outings, became well remembered for his masterful playing of another great villian of literature in the nefarious Dr. Fu Manchu. Always bent on taking over world leadership in many wild and often highly improbable schemes, he was usually matched every step of the way by the intrepid Nayland Smith from Scotland Yard with whom he crossed swords on many occasions. "The Vengeance of Fu Manchu", was the third installment in the series of films starring Lee as Fu Manchu in the mid 1960's and was also the last one produced before the series was taken over by low budget production companies in Europe. These companies ground out a few more installments on much lower budgets that got progressively worse in both story and production values which really shouldn't be compared to the first three films in the series. Christopher Lee makes Fu Manchu a most memorable villian and while this film is perhaps a little weaker than the earlier films in the series, "Vengeance", does share with them rich atmosphere and some fine performances by both the Asian and British members of the supporting cast.

2.0 out of 5 stars The hostage daughter, again October 14, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the third of five Fu Manchu movies with the very English Christopher Lee yellowfaced into the title role. It is also the third of the first three in which Fu Manchu's basic gambit is to enslave a great scientist or technician by threatening harm to his daughter. Tsai Chin once again stylishly and fetchingly embarrasses herself as Fu Manchu's sadistic daughter Lin Tang (not to be confused with Fah Lo Suee, Fu Manchu's daughter in the actual Sax Rohmer thrillers). What's with all the daughters in these movies anyway? Does it say something about the writer's family? (The same man wrote all five movies, Harry Alan Towers under his pseudonym Peter Welbeck.) Anyhow, the idea of transforming an Asian into the spitting image of a particular Westerner by plastic surgery, and in 48 hours to make the idea even more ridiculous, is a plot device I find hard to swallow. As a fan of Sax Rohmer's novels I wish these adaptations had been better, since I have doubts about the marketability of a Yellow Peril villain in the 21st Century. Marginally better than the two disasters which were to follow (Blood of Fu Manchu and Castle of Fu Manchu).

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak plot January 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is by far the weakest of the first three Fu movies (the British films). The plot turns on Fu's substituting a look-alike for Neyland Smith. Though he looks like Commissioner Smith, he acts like a zombie - and no one seems to notice! The plot is just too stupid to be entertaining. Give this one a skip unless you need to complete your Fu collection.
