Lethal Weapon 2 (BD)
The series formula started to kick in with this immediate sequel to Lethal Weapon, but that doesn't necessarily make it a weak movie. Joe Pesci joins the fold, Richard Donner directs again, and Mel Gibson and Danny Glover return as LAPD partners, their relationship smoother now that Gibson's character has recovered from his maddening grief over his wife's death. But the reckless Mel and cautious Danny equation, good for a million laughs, settles into place in this story involving a South African smuggler and a new girlfriend (Patsy Kensit) for Gibson. The movie is hardly comfy, though. The last act gets nasty, and a climactic fight between Gibson (who gets the worst of it) and some high-kicking villain is ugly. The DVD release includes production notes, Dolby sound, theatrical trailer, optional full-screen and widescreen presentations, optional French soundtrack, and optional English, French, and Spanish subtitles. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The biggest problem, I feel, is Riggs' new girlfriend, played by Patsy Kensit. I know the film probably wouldn't make it without it, but hey, I don't know. It just doesn't feel right to me - I mean, it was the whole point of the first film! Riggs was going insane and...I don't know, it just doesn't feel right to me.
If that doesn't matter to you, you'll like the film just fine. It comes nowhere near being as good as the first film, but it cemented the series formula and continued one of the most successful action series of all time.<....
This time the villains aren't mercenaries, they're South Africans making counterfeit money, and one of the film's best lines is when Pesci brings Glover into the South African Embassy where an Afrikaner informs him, "But...but...you're black!!!"
But when Pesci's not in the scenes, there's just none of the fire of the first movie, and instead of the nonstop action of LETHAL WEAPON we're left with scenes like Gibson spending quality time at the Murtaugh's house chopping vegetables and nonchalantly talking about the death of his wife, a major part of his character in the first movie. Maybe by LETHAL WEAPON 2 Gibson and Glover are simply tired of playing the roles, because they just don't have any of the magic of their first movie together, but when Joe Pesci's in the game, one thing's for sure:LETHAL WEAPON 2 IS JOE PESCI'S BEST MOVIE!!!

A good second installment in the series. It does some good character development of the principles, but it's easy to see why "buddies" became more important in the later films.Published on Feb. 5 2004 by Daniel S. Russell
