Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Lethal Carnage April 29 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The engaging chemistry of Mel Gibson (Martin Riggs) and Danny Glover (Roger Murtaugh) continues into LETHAL WEAPON 2 as they take on a South African drug kingpin, Arjen Rudd(Joss Ackland). He also happens to be a South African diplomat with immunity to any type of persecution. So, Riggs and Murtaugh harrass him and his henchmen, playing a lethal cat and mouse game of picking off each other from both sides. A key witness Leo Getz (Joe Pesci) stands in the middle of all the carnage and the carnage mounts. Practically everyone from Riggs' and Murtaugh's precinct (detectives, officers and what have you) are eliminated... even the female lead/love interest to Riggs-(Patty Kensit) is oft in the proceedings. It seems the only ones left alive are Riggs and Murtaugh (it was reported that Shane Black's original screenplay was to have Riggs killed at the end) to take on the South African drug cartell. Even with the body count, the film is very entertaining due to Gibson and Glover's characters, a witty script, and the direction of Richard Donner (SUPERMAN-THE MOVIE, THE OMEN) who seems to have a fond affection for the two characters since he's directed all four films. The film franchise probably "perfected" (not invented)the buddy cop genre (forerunners: SUPERCOPS, FREEBIE AND THE BEAN, RUNNING SCARED) and is the "yardstick" for others that haven't come close (i.e. TANGO AND CASH...?). Lastly as the final credits roll in LW2, George Harrison's great song CHEER DOWN plays. Perhaps because guitar god/legend Eric Clapton did part of the muscial score for the film, he got pal Harrison to contribute the song. The song sounds very much like a James Bond-type tune and perhaps was inspired by the nature of the film. When the film is shown on network televison, its too bad the song is always drowned out by programming or commercial announcements (notoriously and especially on TNT and TBS). On cable, DVD, and video, the song can be heard in its entirety.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 out of 5 Sept. 25 2003
Format:DVD
They're back. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover return as LAPD cops Murtaugh and Riggs; this time they're on the tail of an African diplomat (Joss Ackland) who's using his diplomatic immunity to smuggle drugs in and out of the country. Richard Donner returns to direct, and shows he hasn't changed a bit; Jeffrey Boam, who also scripted Spielberg's INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE, scripts; there's also a very good score by Eric Clapton, Michael Kamen and David Sanborn. Joe Pesci enters the series here - he's hilarious. The drive-thru sequence is unforgettable and an essential watch.
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.<....

5.0 out of 5 stars Master Race Jan. 11 2003
Format:DVD
Gibson's got stamina, an ex-suicidal roman candle vietnam veteran who unleashes all his rage when Pleter Vorstedt said softly to him: "I pulled this mop of bloodsoaked hair to see this woman's face. Your wife, right?" Riggs lets all of hs fury loose on the cougar ants, to avenge the demise of his wife, (similar to Bruce Lee in the Chinese Connection) or angry that they might kill his Dutch sweetheart, such as when he iced that one guy, and said: "Master Race." Gover's married, three kids, worried that Riggs (Gibson) is going to get the two of them smoked like a hookah, but his nervousness gives him that deadly, bad boy angry attitude. For instance, when he picked up the nailgun and drilled those two South Africans, stops, takes a deep breath, and in a rugged, worn-out tone says: "Nailed 'em both!" Pesci's got an in-your-face, ranting, humorous personality, such as: "Everyone cheats a little bit, look at he Pentagon!" Or when he said: "See these these silk pajamas? Free!" Murtaugh replied: "It's not free, it's taxes paying for it!" "Oh, come on, it's the same thing, okay, okay?" By the way, is that Home Alone, or moan on the phone? O'Connor is pure evil, and builds up his anger, when Riggs is reading his diplomatic liscence, saying: "Ok, you're Vo-Vorsh-enofk, ah, forget it, I'll just call you Adolf. His appearence extremely wicked, and his delivery of his lines and the look in his eyes when he was spin-kicking Riggs in the face on the cruise is 100% demonlike.

Format:VHS Tape
LETHAL WEAPON 2 is Director and Co-Producer Richard Donner's worst movie--until Joe Pesci saves the day!!! Richard Donner has had an amazing career, with lots of successful movies that made a lot money and are pretty good art, too, like SUPERMAN:THE MOVIE, and THE OMEN, and his first LETHAL WEAPON movie was the proverbial tough act to follow, but LETHAL WEAPON 2 is awful until Joe Pesci steals the show! I don't know what Joe Pesci's got in LETHAL WEAPON 2--he doesn't have it in LETHAL WEAPON 4--but in this movie he's funny, he's clever, and he's a likable third wheel for Mel Gibson and Danny Glover as they return to their roles as policemen Riggs and Murtaugh, with Pesci as a federal witness for them to protect, and you can guess where things go from there!
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.
