YMMV / Martial Law

  • Anticlimax Boss: Sammo was once facing a man, claimed to be world's deadliest assassin, who had even killed two bodyguards with a pencil. However when Sammo started fighting him it turned out that the guy didn't even know kung fu. He was just a crook, who had accidentally killed a man with improperly prepared fugu while trying to hide from the police, and pretended to be an assassin for the money.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: It's pretty obvious that most of the viewers were watching the show solely to watch Sammo Hung kick ass and take names.
  • Seasonal Rot: The second season, when Sammo Hung was saddled with Arsenio Hall to force the series to become a TV copy of Rush Hour, was doomed from the start.
  • Ship Sinking: The Ship Tease that existed between Louis and Grace in the first season evaporated after Louis got written out of the show for the second season.
