The Face Of Fu Manchu (1965) 5/10
Woah. Racist movie is racist.
If you can get past that, an interesting story.
Making a bad guy more threatening by actually letting them succeed
isn't a bad idea.
Christopher Lee as always a no-nonsense "unstoppable" villain.
I missed the end of this, as I recorded it and it was on free tv - they were 20 minutes late (of course they were, I have no idea why free tv is being killed [sarcasm]).
They obviously ran out of Asian extras to be henchmen, and a couple of English extras look hilariously out of place mixed in with them.
Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade (1989) 2/10
You have Sean Connery, an acknowledged ass-kicker, playing a role where every time a baddie threatens him he looks pleadingly for help and DOESN'T THROW A PUNCH THROUGH THE ENTIRE MOVIE.
Then you have Harrison Ford, definitely nearing his use-by date, basically looking like a swashbuckling accountant. Hooray?
Then there is a bunch of religious hokum, some Nazis and a woman who is good or evil with every change of the weather.
This crap gets one point for having a half-interesting idea (treasure hunts chasing medieval or Norman clues are usually interesting), and one point for finding Forever Alone Guy at the end.
