Karl Maka is back!
6 June 2003 | by (detroit) – See all my reviews

Sammo Hung plays a thief impersonating 'Flower Kid' , a known do-gooder and general hero... Karl Maka plays the officer who wants to track Sammo down. After blackmailing a bounty-hunter into helping him, the hunter and sammo gang together to help the real flower kid beat his demons.

Average fight scenes, average comedy... see one of Sammo's better movies, like Millionaires Express, instead. or see Aces go Places for a better Karl Maka movie. 6/10
