The 1990's were quite disappointing for fans of action shows. Martial Law was one of the few good shows.
Sammo Hung played Sammo Law in this show. He was brilliant. I am not a big fan of Martial Arts shows but this was entertaining. The stunts and the fight scenes were just amazing. Sammo was very agile for his size and there was always fun in watching him beat the bad guys; he always used their own weapons against them. No bad guy could beat Sammo-even if they had a gun or a knife. Sammo just kicked their butts.
Add to this the chemistry between all the characters and the great villains throughout the series and you have one really great show. Check it out.
