Impossible Kid, The (1982)

** (out of 4)

This is the film you get when you mix James Bond, The Pink Panther, exploitation, kung fu and a 2 foot 9 midget. This spoof on Bond features midget Weng Weng as Secret Agent 00 who gets in the middle of a terrorist group trying to bribe rich businessmen. The story here really doesn't matter. What does matter is that you've got a midget playing a ladies man Secret Agent who isn't afraid to use some kung fu to kick ass. As you can tell, this film from the Phillippines isn't to be taken too seriously and if you go in with a tongue and cheek attitude then you're bound to get a few laughs. The fight scenes are so incredibly ridiculous but they work because there's a midget involved. Seeing these beautiful women fall over the dude also manages to get some laughs. The film, technically speaking, is pretty bad but then again, this wasn't meant to challenge Citizen Kane. The score also rips off that of Bond and the Panther.
