Several Filipino businessman are kidnapped and murdered by the terrorist organisation Cobra, which eventually sends a video to the Chamber of Industialists, threatening to kill a businessman every day until the Chamber agrees to pay 1 billion Pesos, to be fairly shared by all the businessmen in the room. Businessman Simeon (Tony Carreon) agrees to pay up a little too quickly, but the money transfer is foiled by diminuitive Interpol Agent 00 (Weng Weng), who hides in the moneybag to get his hands on the crooks. But of course, the men he captures here are only lowly goons, the brain of Cobra still remains as elusive as his identity remains a mystery.

Thing is, Simeon is not happy that the money transfer has been thwarted, neither is the head of the Camber of Industrialists Manolo (Romy Diaz), and before long they demand Agent 00 to be drawn off the case. Agent 00 of course smells a rat when he sees one, and suspects Manolo from square 1 ... but his boss (Ben Johnson) relieves him of duties nevertheless - officially at least, inofficially he strongly suggests for Agent 00 to stay on, as it might be easier now to follow up leads anyways.

Eventually, Agent 00 makes it onto Cobra's yacht - where he's promptly captured, put in a cage, and then the cage is thrown overboard to drown him - but one of the girls in Cobra's employ has a soft spot for the little man and fishes the cage out of the sea. In the meantime, Manolo and Simeon have convinced all members of the Chamber of Industrialists to pay up, and only when they deliver the money it becomes clear that the both of them are really the masterminds behind Cobra - but of course they haven't taken into account that Agent 00's still alive, and ultimately they get their just desserts while Agent 00 gets the girl.

 

Now a James Bond-style espionage/action movie with a 2'9" lead is of course always some fun - however politically incorrect that will sound I have to admit. As a whole however, The Impossible Kid is no masterpiece, rather your typical Filipino action romp, made on a budget too low to make all special effects come across as convincing, and fuelled by rather low-brow humour and fits of violence ... and seen as a exotic and nostalgic party movie reminiscent of the early VHS era then, this film is just what the doctor ordered, it's fun, it's easy to follow, the action while not terribly well exectuted never lets up, several scenes are just too ridiculous not to love, and the ways the diminuitive hero is worked into the plot are just endearing.

To put it shortly, you'll laugh - you may or may not like it all that much, but you'll probably really laugh.
