An underrated Hammer adventure, which Columbia released on their region 1 dvd set, icons of adventure. Christopher Lee plays a sort of Fu Manchu character. It's a bit disturbing when they kill the main character's daughter, but he soon seems to forget about it, and Yvonne Monlaur looks as gorgeous and bewildered as ever. It's sort of funny seeing other familiar white actors playing oriental parts.
