Marshal Law is a 1996 action-packed crime movie directed by Stephen Cornwell, starring Jimmy Smits, James Le Gros, and Kristy Swanson. Set in Los Angeles, the movie follows the life of a law enforcement officer named Jack Valentine, who is assigned to protect a witness with evidence against a notorious drug lord. The movie begins as Jack Valentine (Jimmy Smits), an experienced Los Angeles detective, is left feeling disillusioned with his job after he discovers that his colleagues, including his former partner, are corrupt. Despite his conflicts with his colleagues, Valentine is still dedicated to the safety of the people of Los Angeles. He then becomes the head of the Witness Protection Program, where he is assigned to protect a key witness in a drug trial.

The witness, known only as "The Madonna" (Kristy Swanson), has crucial evidence against a powerful drug lord who runs an extensive network in Los Angeles. Despite her importance to the trial and her safety, The Madonna is a frustrating witness, as she continually defies Valentine's security measures and puts herself in danger. However, as the trial date draws closer, The Madonna's life is threatened by the drug lord she is set to testify against, and it becomes a race against the clock to protect her

As Valentine and his team race to protect the witness, they come under heavy fire from the drug lord's heavily armed and dangerous henchmen. Along the way, Valentine is unexpectedly aided by homeless man and Vietnam War vet named Frank Flynn (James Le Gros), who proves to be a valuable ally against the waves of danger presented by the drug lord.

The film is packed with fast-paced action sequences, including gunfights in crowded areas, car-chases, and hand-to-hand combat. Valentine and his team use all the tools and techniques at their disposal to keep The Madonna safe, including surveillance equipment and state-of-the-art weaponry.

Marshal Law is notable for its portrayal of a gritty, violent, and dangerous Los Angeles filled with crooked cops and ruthless drug dealers. It is also notable for its themes of redemption, as Valentine is a deeply flawed character who seeks to regain his sense of purpose in life through his dedication to protecting The Madonna.

Jimmy Smits delivers a powerful performance as the lead detective, portraying a character who is both vulnerable and tough at the same time. His chemistry with James Le Gros's character, Frank Flynn, is also noteworthy, as the two men have different backgrounds but share a common goal in protecting the witness.

Overall, Marshal Law is a thrilling action-packed movie that delivers on its promise of excitement and thrills. It is a must-watch for fans of the action genre and anyone who enjoys a good cop thriller.
