A hilarious and yet engaging film
4 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This little gem was found by me in a dollar store and I couldn't resist the cover- a midget super hero! All my fantasies on the cover of one DVD. Was it too good to be true? It was better than expected.

Dubbed, the characters in this are totally straight faced actors. Agent 00 works for Interpol, and despite very few lines, he performs amazing acrobatics and fight scenes and even drives a mino scooter. He is adored by women ("I couldn't help myself") and seemingly indestructible. This is a pleasure of a film and I am dying to see the first movie as this is a sequel. Worth a dollar or ten dollars for the sheer joy. I'm glad they didn't take it too seriously but also didn't go overboard with humor or jokes- subtle comedy that lets the little man do the work. Great scene when he has to reach for an elevator button.
