A group of terrorists led by Mr Giant are bent on doing evil just for
the sake of doing evil. Not only do they abduct professor Kohler (Mike
Cohen), to force his plans for a secret weapon out of him, they also plan
to bake heroin into bread to give it to kindergarten kids (presumably to
open themselves to a whole new generation of customers). But the Filippino
Secret Service sends their best man after them, the suave & elegant
babe magnet Agent 00 (Weng Weng) ...
Now that would all sound like the usual James Bond rip-off fare, with
the small difference that the lead, Weng Weng, is under 3 feet tall, and
runs around in a Saturday Night Fever-John Travolta-style white
... but on with the show: Agent 00, helped by Irma, undercover agent with the
manages to thwart the evildoings of Mr Giant's organisation every step
along the way, either by kicking his adversaries in the groin, biting them
in their behind, or using his steel-bladed hat to cut their throats.
Then though, the baddies realise they have a traitor within their own
ranks, & when they detect Irma's radio, hidden in her necklace (but
not hidden very good, a little light keeps flashing every time it's in
operation), it's pretty obvious who the traitor is ... and soon they
decide to use her as bait to lure Agent 00 into a trap.
Agent 00 though is no fool, he defeats the enemy agents every step
along the way, & even has time to bed at least 2 ladies, before he
gets a lead on Mr Giant's secret hide-out (fittingly called Hidden
With a jet pack, and a bunch of government soldiers as back-up, he
enters Hidden Island, to free Irma & Dr Kohler & deliver the final
strike on Mr Giant's organisation. Only when he is to fight Mr Giant
himself, he is in for a taste of his own medicine - for you see, like him,
Mr Giant is a midget.
Of course, after an extended martial arts fight, Agent 00 can gun down
Mr Giant, & the forces of good can prevail ... only Irma loses her
life in the line of duty ...
Nope, For Y'ur Height Only is not a sophisticated, subtle,
intelligent film, rather it is a crudely made piece of trash, mainly made
to profit from its lead actor's short height ... but with more often than
not unexpectedly funny results. The film has a certain careless
tongue-in-cheek-attitude to its premises often amiss from more polished
comparable Hollywood product, & even if it doesn't seem politically
quite correct, you can't help but giggle about short-grown Weng Weng's
exploits. (On second thought of course, the political uncorrectness
of this film is arguable at best ... at least, this is one of the few
examples of a midget hero/chick magnet ! And if it's entertaining at the
same time, well, sue me.)
