Martial Law

Please choose a format above.

Martial Law: It’s the film that Nepotism Enthusiast magazine deemed “Movie of the Year!” Steve McQueen’s son Chad (of course he's named Chad) stars as Sean “Martial Law” Thompson, who has achieved a high rank on the police force despite having the raw charisma of a collectible spoon from the birthplace of Millard Fillmore.

His partner and lover is Cynthia Rothrock, who must have been tricked into thinking she was acting alongside Steve. She shows off the Kung Fu skills that would later land her the coveted role of Mrs. Claus. Together they will take down evil businessman Dalton Rhodes (played by David Carradine, on one of the rare days in the late 90s he wasn’t filming a movie where he wore a stupid radio-controlled glove.)

Carradine is running an illegal luxury car dealership out of a karate studio and has mastered The Touch of Death. Good luck reading a dumber sentence today. Please join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for Martial Law.


Written by Mike Nelson, Conor Lastowka, and Sean “Martial Law” Thomason

Contributing Writers: Jason Miller and Zachary Shatzer
