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

When trying to get information or help from someone, Louis often puts on an Australian accent, the native accent of actor Louis Mandylor. Sometimes when he is doing his regular American voice, you can hear his accent slip. See more »

I can't say enough good things about this show. As a 18-year old action loving teenager, I think this is the best action show on television. But enough about me, let's talk about the show. The show centers on Sammo Law, played by Sammo Hung, as a Chinese cop who trades places with a cop from L.A. Sammo and his student, Grace/Pei-Pei, begin to work as detectives on the L.A.P.D., under the command of Lt. Windship (Tom Wright). Arsenio Hall was thrown into the mix, just for comic relief, as Tyrell Parker. And Louis Mandylor rounds out the group as detective Louis Malone. The characters all work great together. The best part of the show, however, is Sammo's martial arts moves. Sammo is a big guy, but he still manages to kick butt like it's nobody's business. Martial Law is way superior to Walker, Texas Ranger, Nash Bridges, and Sons of Thunder all put together. More people should watch this show so it won't canceled or anything like that.
