Fun But Not at This Length

For Y'ur Height Only (1981)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Philippines exploitation at its finest or worst depending on how you look at it and what type of sense of humor you have. The evil Mr. Giant kidnaps a brilliant scientist and plans on using his creation for world destruction by Agent 00 (Weng Weng) is on the case and in between the babes tries to stop any wrong doing. FOR Y'UR HEIGHT ONLY is best remembered because of it casting the 30-inch tall Weng Weng as the secret agent, of course spoofing James Bond. There's really a couple ways you can look at this. I'm sure many will view this as pure exploitation and be put off by the fact that they're using Weng just because of his size. There are others who enjoy watching cheap movies like this and they'll probably get a kick out of seeing Weng play a ladies man who can kick anyone's butt no matter how big they are. I'm in the camp who can be entertained by weird stuff like this but there's only one problem and it's the fact that this film clocks in at 87-minutes. I will admit that I've seen quite a few "midget" films and this one here really isn't any different than the others. They each feature their own charming material and there's no question that the real key here is the work of Weng who just comes off so charming that you really do just want to have a beer with him. I found Weng to be incredibly charming and his unique face and visuals just add to the fun. The most jaw-dropping thing is watching him do his own stunts and especially in the scenes where it's obvious someone is just off from the camera throwing him into action. The size thing makes for some interesting scenes but sadly when you stretch it out to a full-length film it just loses its punch and you're left with a bunch of boring scenes that rarely go anywhere. The "story" is silly and not good enough to hold your interest. Technically speaking the film is quite poor and especially some horrid editing. Still, I'm sure most will expect this badness and as bad as the movie is it's still worth sitting through just for Weng.
