Aw Fu!

The Fu Manchu films, they were great fun. There were 5 of the them, with Christopher Lee starring as Fu in all 5 (also the beautiful Tsai Chin starred with him in all 5 as his evil and deadly daughter). Are the films "PC" of course not, full of the British fear of the Yellow Peril but the films point out that Fu is a criminal and even the Chinese want him.
First 3 films are pretty good action films, low budgets dogged the films especially the last two directed by the late Jess Franco.
They could never be made today in this world political correctness and lack of humour..
