Product Description

4 Film Favorites: Lethal Weapon (Dbl DVD)


The explosive and edgy Lethal Weapon introduced America to its favorite modern buddy team: Mel Gibson's suicidal firecracker Martin Riggs, a Vietnam vet whose reckless stunts earn him a reputation as the Los Angeles Police Department's least desirable partner, and Danny Glover's aging family man Roger Murtaugh, a veteran detective who wants nothing more than to gracefully live to see his pension. Richard Donner's smash movie is sleek, stylish, and practically nonstop action, but it's the chemistry between the combustible energy of Gibson and the paternal reserve of Glover that makes this combination so lethal. A sequel was inevitable, so Lethal Weapon 2 sent Riggs and Murtaugh after a South African drug syndicate, tossed funnyman Joe Pesci into the mix as a comic foil, and upped the ante of explosions, car chases, and apocalyptic property damage. Kung fu-kicking Rene Russo signed on for Lethal Weapon 3, a "mad genius run amok" adventure rushed into production without a finished script (and it shows in sloppy ad-libbed scenes) and crammed with wild high-speed chases and spectacular explosions. When Lethal Weapon 4 hit screens in 1998, the starring cast had ballooned: hot comic Chris Rock joined Gibson, Glover, Russo, and Pesci to take on a Chinese counterfeiting and slavery ring led by Hong Kong martial arts superstar Jet Li. Director Richard Donner helms every installment of his series, topping the frenzy of action and pyrotechnics with each new feature; watching the arc of the Lethal Weapon franchise is like a crash course in American action cinema of the '90s: bigger, faster, louder. Yet at the heart of every film is Riggs and Murtaugh, mismatched partners who become unlikely buddies, ready to lay their lives down for one another. By the climax of Lethal Weapon 4, as they team up against the fighting fury of Jet Li, their friendship has become the defining drive of the series. --Sean Axmaker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best series ever - on Blu-Ray! Nov. 18 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Finally, all the Lethal Weapons together on Blu-Ray! These are the original theatrical versions with the deleted or added scenes from other versions kept separate. This leaves this classic series the way it should be even though many liked those scenes in; most of those scenes however didn't add anything to the movies.

Watching all 4 on consecutive nights brought back how good the acting, characters, drama, comedy, writing, everything is. Despite his recent meltdowns, Gibson really made his name as an actor here and his teaming with Glover is just perfect. The supporting cast - Pesci, Russo, Rock, along with those who played Glover's family (and they were the same actors through the series - not always done, the police officers/captain and psychiatrist - just added and fit in. I think the final credits of LW 4 show that with basically a family photo album (remember those) scrolling through.

I haven't watched the extras yet but there's a lot and they look to be quite in depth. Both the picture and sound translated quite well to Blu-Ray even though LW 1 came out in 1987(!).

All-in-all, a classic movie series gets the treatment it deserves. Highly recommended to any Lethal Weapon fan and, frankly, to any movie fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Of The Best Cop Dramas Ever Made July 18 2004
Finally, all four of the "Lethal Weapon" movies are available in one boxed set. One of the greatest series ever to grace the screen, the movies have Mel Gibson and Danny Glover as cops on the edge bttling internation criminals while trying to keep their lives in order.
1987's "Lethal Weapon" is where it all began. Roger Murtaugh (Glover) is a veteran cop who is also a consumate family man. He is very careful and doesn't take any risks. Martin Riggs (Gibson), on the other hand, is a lonely, suicidal police officer who takes risks that even Dirty Harry wouldn't do. How could these do ever work together? Well, when a young girl mysterious jumps to her death out of a highrise apartment window, the two are assigned to work together. What ensues is a nonstop action (including a shootout at a Christmas Tree store and a a daring rescue of Murtaugh's daughter) as well as lots of funny moments. Also, the two cops, opposite as they are, strike up a friendship that would go on to make millions at the box office.
1989's "Lethal Weapon 2" has Gibson and Glover back in their roles. The two cops are slightly different now. Murtaugh is still the family man but now is more of a risktaker. Riggs is still the more daring of the two but has calmed down... somewhat. When Murtaugh's house is invaded by German criminals, the duo cracks down on a crime ring selling drugs. To make things a little more interesting for them, they are assigned to look after Leo Getz (Joe Pesci), a big moout money laundere in the Witness Protection program. Pesci turns in one of his finest comedic performances in this film. Like the first one, it's exciting and funny.
1993's "Lethal Weapon 3" came after a 4 - year hiatus. This one is my personal favorite.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Good For The Price Jan. 15 2009
I have bought several of these "4 Film Favorites". They are dirt cheep and amazing value. I know a lot of people don't seem to like the 2 sided discs, but I am always very careful with them, and have had no problems. If the disc cracked, I would send it back to Amazon. They have always stood behind their products. I had bought the set already, but when I got home I did some research, and discovered that the Lethal Weapon discs even when bought in other more fancy editions, rarely had any more extras than they are given here. The Superman Set is also very good.Lethal Weapon: 4 Film Favorites - Lethal Weapon 1-4

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Of The Grittiest Cop Dramas Ever Made April 8 2004
One of the greatest film series ever to grace the screen, the "Lethal Weapon" series has been immortalized with this amazing boxed set. And with 4 of some of the finest action movies ever made, who wouldn't want it?
1987's "Lethal Weapon" is where it all began. Danny Glover is Roger Murtaugh, a decent and respected cop who has a beautiful home, & a loving family, plus a hefty pension to boot. Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) is just the opposite. He lives alone on the beach. He is a suicidal wreck, about to snap at any moment. But he can still blow any s.o.b who comes within a 50 - foot radius of him. So imagine the surpris when these are put together to solve a mysterious suicide. Well, the result is magic, complete with spine - cracking action and plenty of humor. A classic.
1989's "Lethal Weapon 2" finds the two cops back on the street. Murtaugh is still the family man but now is more of a risktaker, while Riggs still is the daredevil of the two, but has calmed down... somewhat. When Murtaugh's house is invaded by German criminals, the two begin to crack drown on a drug ring operating somewhere in the city. The duo is put in charge to protect a murder witness named Leo Getz (a hilarious Joe Pesci), a big - mouthed money launderer who somewhat helps the team find out what they need to know. This is another great addition to the "LW" cannon.
After a 4 - year absence, Riggs and Murtaugh are back (along with Leo) in 1993's "Lethal Weapon 3". And now they have a new addition to the crew: Lorna Cole (Rene Russo), an Internal Affairs agent who turns out to be the perfect match for Riggs. what ensues is a race top stop a crime ring selling armor - piercing bullets that could kill with one shot.
