Peter Lorre was a very versatile actor, but it was a bit weird to see him playing the part of a japanese. You might expect that he would look like a white guy made to look like an asian. However, his already unusual looks sort of makes him appear to be somewhat genuine. There were scenes where he was supposed to dazzel the audience with his judo and save the day. Most of the fight scenes, however, were pretty late 30s stock. Fun movie.
This would be an excellent remake using Jackie Chan and Wilson with updated locations..
