Petite, like a potato.
17 March 2000 | by (Missouri) – See all my reviews

If you don't like this movie you've got a sick problem with your head. Weng Weng is a lover, fighter and master spy. This movie got me off of hard drugs thanks to it's uplifting message that the lava flows hotter in the Phillipines, Praise the lord. They should have come out with more of these movies. The fight scenes are masterful and the dubbed in dialogue can't be beat. Both of my thumbs up.
