There's bad guy balls need punching and Weng Weng, a man who is smaller than my six year old son, is just the guy we need. He's an interpol agent in a tiny white suit that the chicks all dig, and he's out to smash a gang of bad guys who are extorting money from a bunch of businessmen.

There's not much going on story wise but basically we want to see Weng Weng kicks everybody's arse (or balls, if we're being honest here) while girls swoon over him. He gets into various scrapes, gets locked in cages, hides in suitcases etc etc. There's some boobs, and a nice shoot out near the end when Weng Weng gets a hold of a machine gun, so nothing to worry about there.

What I did notice was the high amount of 'bad guy laughing' in the final third of the film, but that's to be expected. Not much to say about this one but it's available on Mill Creek's 50 Martial Arts Classics box set, which also includes the great Ninja Death series (which holds the record for the amount of times I've rewound a film because I couldn't believe what I was seeing). It's probably on YouTube too
