Waiting for 4K restoration

Too often Fu Manchu is portrayed as a 2D sort of character, when really he was a complex man. Some people say his crimes were like Hitler, Mussolini, or ISIS - but real history isn’t so simple.
Overall, this could be the best of Christopher Lee’s five Fu films. It’s hard to say because they are all very good. My only criticism is for the unfair stereotypes of Englishmen having weak nerves and a strange fondness for lads. The directors should have implied those scenes rather than showing them.
