Critic Reviews for Chandu the Magician

All Critics (2)

This programmer benefits from solid production values -- it was shot by the legendary James Wong Howe and co-directed (with Marcel Varnel) by renowned art director William Cameron Menzies -- but the story and acting are strictly amateur hour.

This silly fantasy sci-fi adventure film is based on a popular radio serial.
