Hit and miss
3 February 1999 | by Leon-24See all my reviews

You know, when I first saw this show, I thought it was terrible. But then, for some reason, I kept watching it. I guess I'm just starved for kung-fu fighting, but don't really like watching Martial Law, too much.

Some of the fight scenes I saw were kind of bad, but some of the more recent episodes I saw showcased some excellent sequences. The acting and dialogue here will always be on the "not so great" level. But I guess it's only TV. As for story? Well, there doesn't seem to be much of a story. It's just 1) people are trying to kill Kung Lao 2)they have a fight 3) then we talk to Rayden at the end. And that's enough for me.
