Storyline

Sammo Law (Sammo Kam-Bo Hung), a top flight cop and hand to hand combat instructor from Shanghai, China comes to Los Angeles to search for a crime boss and female undercover cop Chen Pei Pei (Kelly Hu), with whom his department lost contact. Once there, his temporary mission is turned into an on-going exchange position, and he is partnered with a pair of cops. As they battle the criminal elements of the city, his skill in martial arts proves to be a big help. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

One word: Awesome!
8 December 1999 | by wishkah7See all my reviews

When I saw Martial Law for the first time when it aired, I was immediately hooked! And I made it my Saturday night ritual! Sammo, Terrel, Grace, and Amy are all very provocative, coloful, and cool characters in their own way. I miss Louis, though. I'm also a big fan of Jackie Chan's movies, too. And the director of this show is the same who did those Jackie Chan movies! In this show, you not only have crimes being solved, you have comedy, cool karate moves, and most of all a fun show to watch!

Even Arsenio Hall is learning some of those slick karate moves, himself, and I love his comedic antics! Sammo is awesome, Grace (Kelly Hu) would make a good role model for young girls who watch this, & she has cool moves like Sammo, and Amy too, and she's cool as the boss!

Even though we're still left hanging from last season's cliffhanger, this show is getting better in every episode they make. I hope CBS renews it for a third season! Either way, it's still an awesome and spectacular show! If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to see this one!
