Audience Reviews for Martial Law
Chad McQueen (Steve's real-life son) and Cynthia Rothrock are cool as cops use hands and feet to fight crime.
A decent actioner complete with fantastic fight scenes, courtesy of Phillip Tan, who aside from being the fight choreographer, also has a part as henchman Wu Han in this film. Chad Macqueen and Cynthia Rothrock play a pair of Metro Police officers who use their fists and their feet for maximum law enforcement on the mean streets of L.A. When shooting criminals is a 'no-go', Chad and Cynthia's characters Sean Thompson and Billie Blake are called in to serve up justice...Martial Law style. But when the two begin investigating the mysterious deaths of criminals belonging to various crime outfits, Sean and Billie's investigation will put them on a collision course with Dalton Rhodes (the late great David Carradine), notorious mastermind who is also a Grand Master in the Dim Mak arts. Problems get further complicated with Sean's younger brother Michael, a young delinquent who is always getting into trouble with the law, who is working in Rhode's crime syndicate as a car thief. As the story progresses, Michael must find a way to keep his secret criminal life a secret from his older brother while at the same time dodging Faster Brown (V.C. Dupree), a former employee of Rhode's and Michael's biggest rival who seeks to get back into Rhode's favor by trying to expose Michael as a police informant.
Don't wanna give too much away, but overall the story behind this movie is simple and easy to follow and the fight scenes, while B-grade are still enjoyable and entertaining to watch. I recommend this movie to anyone who is a Cynthia Rothrock or David Carradine fan.
