That Weng Weng is in league with Lucifer!
19 November 2006 | by (Santa Cruz, CA) – See all my reviews

This is easily one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Weng Weng is agent 00, and he's two foot 9". From the opening "montage" of him running around looking cool to the extreme shocker/twist ending, this film had me roaring with laughter and cheering on Weng Weng as he battles the Crime Syndicate and Mr. Giant. There are endless scenes of Weng Weng looking around and then sneaking up on people and then killing them. And he's ruthless. He laughs and smiles after killing bad guys. The bad guys are great, too. "All forces of good are our sworn enemies," one says at one point. There is something about this movie, and I can't really put my finger on it, but its really a magical film. One that should be enjoyed by all.
