Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Mel Gibson set aside his art-house credentials to star as a crazy cop paired with a stable one (Danny Glover) in this full-blown 1987 Richard Donner action picture. The most violent film in the series (which includes three sequels), it is also the edgiest and most interesting. After Gibson's character jumps off a building handcuffed to a man, and Gary Busey (as a cold, efficient enforcer) lets his hand get burned without flinching, there is a sense that anything can happen, and it usually does. Donner's strangely messy visual and audio style doesn't make a lot of aesthetic sense, but it stuck with all four movies. 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

5.0 out of 5 stars Not my original purchase... but the better choice March 18 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Originally, I bought the 4-movie set of Lethal Weapon. I had problems viewing two of the movies on my laptop, personal DVD player, and DVD connected to TV. I returned the set and bought each of the movies separately. I enjoyed the movies and so has my teen-aged daughter.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Disc Unworthy of the Movie Feb. 6 2011
By John Woodward TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
*Note, my score is for this edition, not the film itself*
Every cliché has to start somewhere, and few have a better beginning than Lethal Weapon. The Buddy-Cop genre has been done to death, but Gibson and Glover's chemistry as Riggs and Murtaugh still keeps this one feeling fresh and energetic. By far the grittiest film the franchise, the first Lethal Weapon smartly relies more on good story-telling and engaging characters rather than elaborate set-pieces. That's not to say that this is high-drama, just that it (wisely) puts the story ahead of the eye candy.

With far fewer laughs and explosions here than in the franchise's later films, people that didn't start with the original may be a little disappointed. That's unfortunate, if understandable, but those who can appreciate the roots of the Buddy-Cop story are sure to be pleased.

Extras
"Disappointing" is an inadequate word for this paltry selection. The trailer and some production notes are little more than an insult to fans of this film.

Presentation
As phoned in as the extras seem, they've got nothing on this transfer. This was never a slick, glossy action movie but this disc will have you wondering if there's something wrong with your Blu-Ray player.

Bottom Line
If you don't already own Lethal Weapon, then this might be a worthwhile purchase. But if you already own the DVD then this definitely isn't worth the upgrade. Save your money for a release that lives up to the film's content.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mel Gibson and Danny Glover team up Feb. 25 2008
By falcon
Format:DVD
i thought this movie was not bad.it teams Mel Gibson and Danny Glover
together as two cops who couldn't be more different,and end up
partnering with each other.both hate having partners.Martin
Riggs(Gibson)is a loose cannon who likes to bend the roles,and who just
might be suicidal and/or homicidal.Roger Murtaugh is older,more
conservative,and likes to do things by the book.i wouldn't say the
movie is action packed,but it does seem to move at a fairly decent
pace.i wouldn't say it's that funny,either,although it is classified as
an action/comedy.still,i've seen a lot worse in the genre.Gary Busey
has a nice turn as a bad guy.when all is said and done,Lethal weapon is
3/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Lethal Weapon (1987) May 26 2004
Format:DVD
Director: Richard Donner
Cast: Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Gary Busey, Mitchell Ryan, Tom Atkins, Darlene Love.
Running Time: 105 minutes.
Rated R for cop violence and language.
The ultimate in the cop-buddy action flicks, Richard Donner's "Lethal Weapon" is still an essential part of the action-drama genre to this day. Mel Gibson stars as the unstable, suicidal cop who is still grieving the tragic death of his wife, but finds purpose when he is teamed with over-the-hill Sergeant Danny Glover to investigate the mysterious death of a small-time hooker that jumped/was thrown off a building.
As the duo dives deeper into the case, they realize they are in the middle of a tense, big-time drug traffic arrangement and they are up against some tough cookies (namely Gary Busey and Mitchell Ryan). Gibson is great as the reckless Martin Riggs, using his insane tendencies as adrenaline throughout the film, but often also showing a sofer, tender side that produces a lot of laughs. Glover is his equal as Murtaugh, who feels that he is at his last stand as a police officer, but tags along because he feels his duty as a cop is unfinished. An excellent script by Shane Black and an explosive, taut directorial effort from Donner. Has lost some of its mustard due to numerous sequels and imitations ("Rush Hour" anyone?), but still an extremely fun action-adventure that will delight all those who are Gibson fans and love to laugh and gasp.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best of the genre March 1 2004
Format:DVD
Lethal Weapon is one of the best films of the action genre, blending off-beat humor with surprisingly expressive acting and tense situations. Though much of the plot is over the top, and the casualness of the gunplay (as Danny Glover asks Mel: "have you ever met anyone you didn't kill?) seems like it should make the movie too unbelievable to be good, the humor with which the situations are treated pulls the film together easily. Even though the scenes added in the director's cut don't add up to a much longer movie, they do further the character development of Mel Gibson's character. Notably, the sniper scene shows the audience the extent of Gibson/Riggs' emotional disturbance, and lends a deeper character credibility during the confrontation between Riggs and Murtaugh after the rooftop jump, in which Riggs explains that the only thing restraining him from suicide is "the job." Riggs is seen more clearly in this version as a modern gunslinger, a victim of depressed and unstable victim of circumstance who decides daily to keep on living only because he stubbornly refusus to let the bad guys win. Glover plays well opposite, and he does a very good job interpreting a man confronting middle age, family responsibilities, and his responsibility and desire to be a good cop despite the changes in the world that are occuring around him.
The humor is, at the end, what ties this film together. the punchlines seem to come at the tensest moments, though for the most part they avoid the cheesy one liners before blowing the bad guys away. They simply arise out of the context, and do not feel artificial. Busey is also good, and he can really act the part of being one mean SOB.
