Critic Reviews for Daughter of Shanghai

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

[Anna May Wong] moves with cool detachment and grace through this wild yarn of smugglers, thinking her own thoughts, we suspect, and doing what the can to lend interest to a film that is sillier than it is exciting.

December 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Not only because of [Anna May Wong's] presence, but also because the suspense is blood-curdling at times, Daughter of Shanghai is a refreshing job of an all-too-familiar theme.

December 11, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

While the pic makes no pretensions to be more than a programmer, it has several genuine assets.

December 11, 2020 | Full Review…

The means by which the leaders of this illicit traffic are discovered and finally brought to justice is shown in an exciting and absorbing film. Anna May Wong is splendid.

December 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Anna May Wong handles this role as deftly and artistically as she has her many others.

December 11, 2020 | Full Review…

It is a knockdown melodrama with plenty of fights and murders and narrow escapes in which virtue rightly triumphs and the villains get their just deserts. It should please those who want action and gore and excitement.
