Directed by Sampson Yuen and James Lee, and with shades of the good ol' Hong Kong films of the same action-comedy genre, Petaling Street Warriors is a film that's plenty of fun, and chock full of stars to provide it that boost in entertainment value.

It’s just the turn of the century, and in the olden days, hawkers in general have to pay protection fees to gangsters to ensure they get left alone. Along the way, they run into Hokkien gangsters, Cantonese gangsters, casino bosses, brothel mamasans, Japanese ninjas, a corrupt English policemen, and they even throw in Dr. Sun Yat Sen for good measure!
