Certainly better than the abysmal PIERCE BROSNAN
16 August 2002 | by (MIDDLESBROUGH, ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

Let's not beat around the bush, WENG-WENG is a bad-ass, make no mistake. And in FOR YOUR HEIGHT ONLY, he proves it, in spades. If terrorists don't want to get killed, then don't mess with AGENT '00' WENG, comes accross like a mixture of CHARLES BRONSON and STEVEN SEAGAL in his quest to bring down the crime syndicate (ran by MR GIANT!) and anyone that crosses this (verticly-challenged) super-spy, will be cut a new ass-hole. Some people have (foolishly) accused this movie, of being a second-rate rip-off of the JAMES BOND franchise...but it's just a coincidence. Forget the wimpish PIERCE BROSNAN, and his army of 12 year old fans, and watch a tough-guy go to work (allbeit, a 3 and a half foot tough-guy!)

SAMPLE DIALOGUE;

WOMAN; "your'e a great person, you know!"

WENG; "You know what they say, it aint the size, it's the way you use it!"

WOMAN; "Yes..but are you a sexual animal?"

WENG; (in his best WOODY ALLEN voice)..."I don't know!"

WOMAN; " I'm crazy about you '00'...why i don't know?...maybe it's the way you strutt your stuff...you know sex, is like tequilla...take one sip, and you're a gonna!

WENG; "Shall we get it on?"

WOMAN; "Yes darling....bear your bod!"



'FOR YOUR (or 'y'ur', as it reads in the opening titles) HEIGHT ONLY, is a must for fans, that like to see a good foreign title dubbed to the hilt, with accents ranging from HUMPHREY BOGART to WOODY ALLEN. This movie (as WENGS boss proclaims his mini/humdinger machine gun) is a beaut!!!!!

10 out of 10, watch it or watch out (ooohh, my little head!!)
