Lethal Weapon 1-4 Collection (BD)
Lethal Weapon (1987) With over seven minutes of previously unavailable scenes, the director's cut of Lethal Weapon is a long-overdue present for fans. Riggs's solitary homelife and the tragic loss spurring him in a reckless disregard for his own safety now come into greater focus. We see that recklessness is new scenes underlining the differences between the two cops. Murtaugh, just 50, needs reassurance about his skills at a firing range. Riggs, not caring if he sees another birthday, coolly walks into a schoolyard sniper's field of fire. All the humor and adrenaline that made this original an entertainment milestone are here, too. No scenes have been removed. But new action and new insight are now included. Include yourself in the excitement.
Lethal Weapon 2 (1989) Riggs wows the pretties of a hotel spa before getting to Getz. Murtaugh receives bad bodywork news from an auto repairman after his beleaguered station wagon sees some Riggs-piloted street action. Plus, feisty Leo shares a newly included scene in which he recalls a suspect's address by complex spins of numbers that, well, no one can tell it like Leo. And no one would follow his lead but Riggs and Murtaugh. It's police procedure, Lethal style. And it's yours to enjoy as the duo draws a bead on criminals hiding behind diplomatic immunity.
Lethal Weapon 3 (1992) Riggs and Murtaugh are back again. This time, they must stop a former cop who has become an arms dealer to L.A. street gangs.
Lethal Weapon 4 (1998) Mel Gibson and Danny Glover return as buddy cops Riggs and Murtaugh, with Joe Pesci riding comedy shotgun as chatterbox Leo. Murtaugh is still the family man. Riggs is still the gonzo loose cannon and - what's this? - family man. His will-he/won't he marriage to Cole (Rene Russo) is one of the new wrinkles in this powerhouse crowd-pleaser that also stars comedy favorite Chris Rock and international action star Jet Li. This sequel involves an action packed battle with a Chinese ganglord.

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.
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.Read more ›

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.Read more ›
