One of the best series ever - on Blu-Ray!
on November 18, 2011
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.
