It beat the Terror of Tiny Town
21 September 2000 | by GoshzillaSee all my reviews

"So this is how you control your little wang."

I know his name is weng weng, and the guy was talking to a woman, but that line still had me laughing. The VHS copy I bought had terrible tracking problems, but I managed to adjust it so it only had minimal fuzzing. That aside, the movie was hilarious. I wish the Philippines had become more influencial in todays movies, because they sure would be much more interesting. Not to knock modern A-list movies, but the chance of creating a midget James Bond takeoff is very slim. And independent films seem to require 'in-depth meaning' or something.

Anyway, everything about this film was so insanely crazy, you can't help but crack up when Weng Weng pauses for about three seconds after every major event that happens, or sees himself in a mirror and waves, or the classic fight scenes where the guy being attacked ends up lifting Weng Weng to achieve the desired stunts.

It does follow some James Bond style themes, but if you're not thinking about it, you won't notice. There is the array of silly weapons that seem to only have usefulness in one unique situation (which will of course come up sooner or later), the good guy killing people without remorse, and generally being a chick magnet. Despite him being a 3 foot balding midget in a white suit.

I guess know, I just need to get a DVD player so I can see this without constantly re-adjusting the tracking.
