Synopsis:
Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) is no ordinary cop. He's a Mad Max gone maniacal, a man whose killing expertise and suicidal recklessness make him a Lethal Weapon to anyone he works against. Or with. Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) is an easygoing homicide detective with a loving family, a big house and a pension he doesn't want to lose. Imagine Murtaugh's shock when he learns his partner is a guy with nothing left to lose: wild-eyed, burnt-out Martin Riggs.' Lethal Weapon' is the thrill-packed story of two Vietnam-vets-turned-cops who have just one other thing in common: both hate to work with partners.
But partnership becomes the key to survival when a routine murder investigation leads to all-out, take-no-prisoners, martial-arts-and-machine-guns war with an international heroin ring.

Escapist - Lethal Weapon review by JD

Spoiler Alert
24/05/2012

Even if you have seen this before, if it was not less than a year ago, see it again. It is extremely funny and has brilliant action. For maximum feel good escapism there is none better, even Bruce Willis cannot beat them (OK maybe he's close).

The Ultimate Buddy/Cop Film - Lethal Weapon review by GI

Spoiler Alert
17/12/2021

The quintessential buddy cop movie and something different for Christmas, from the opening soundtrack song 'Jingle Bell Rock' to a shoot out at a Christmas tree sale this is a seasonal treat. A real thrill ride despite it having some very daft moments and pushing the boundaries of credibility. But it's so much fun not least because of the great onscreen partnership of Danny Glover and Mel Gibson. Gibson gets to do his unstable, borderline psycho act against Glover's grumpy by-the-book family man. It works well especially with the great Gary Busey as the chief bad guy. If you've never seen this then in short Glover is an LA detective with a lovely family who investigates the apparent suicide of the daughter of an old army buddy. He is given a new partner the psychotic (or is he??) Gibson who is grieving for his recently deceased wife. Together they expose a major drug smuggling operation. It's all shooting and chasing from there with some martial arts, a bit of comedy, some torture and it'll bring a smile to your face. It steals a scene and style from Dirty Harry (1971) and in turn the following year's Die Hard (1988) nicked the ending. I never took to the three sequels which get weaker as they went on but this original is still a film to enjoy time and time again.
