|Grieving, loose-cannon cop Gibson is paired up with family-loving, just-turned-50 cop Glover to smash a drug smuggling racket in L.A.|
A buddy movie which has it all: comedy, drama, action, witty one-liners and a loveable duo leading the way forward to three pretty decent, popular sequels. Recommended.
The Director's Cut features an extra 7 minutes of footage. ~ The Lord
Fairly gritty first entry in the series, the comedy and action are beefed up in subsequent instalments culminating in the hugely enjoyable Lethal Weapon 4. ~ The Sloth
Followed by Lethal Weapon 2 (1989),
Lethal Weapon 3 (1992), and
Lethal Weapon 4 (1998).
