LETHAL WEAPON-Family man and LAPD Det Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) has just turned 50 and he is in for one heck of a birthday. First, he must investigate the mysterious death of a friend's daughter, and then he must break in a new partner. Loose cannon Det. Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) doesn't care if he lives or dies. When the two partners come together for this case, they discover a connection between the victim and a herion drug ring that involves ex-millitary special-ops officers. The original film, for me, reinvigorated the cop-buddy picture The chemistry between Gibson and Glover is evident from the first time they appear on screen together. The script by Shane Black has lots of action, solid characters, and some genuine laughs The film has 7 minutes of added material. There's a few production notes, cast and crew information, and the theatrical trailer
LETHAL WEAPON 2-Riggs and Murtaugh are asked to protect a Government witness, fast-talking Leo Getz (Joe Pesci), who is going to testify that he laundered lots of money. The scheme is tied to a South African diplomat, (Joss Ackland) who hides behind diplomatic immunity to commit his crimes. For this sequel, the humor and action are stepped up quite a bit. Pesci is pitch perfect here as Getz. He fits in nicely and the perfect comic foil to the guys already outrageous antics. Meanwhile, the audience learns some interesting stuff about the death of Riggs's wife Vicki, first revealed in the original film.Read more ›
Sadly, this set is somewhat devoid of special features. I was disappointed that Warner didn't use the 'Lethal 4' DVD release (which included a half-hour restrospective and a feature-length commentary track) as the model to go off of for the LW Director's Cut DVDs. Aside from the obligatory trailers & restored scenes, there's not much else to these discs. Only LW2 has a featurette that goes behind-the-scenes during the nighttime helicopters-shooting-at-Riggs'-trailer scene.
Still, the sound & picture quality of these discs practically blow away (doh!) their VHS counterparts, which were pretty good themselves. Thanks to those extra background channels, you can really hear the reverb when our heroes start poppin' caps at the bad guys! I only wish Warner would finally get around to releasing their mo-pic DVDs in sturdy plastic keep cases, rather than those fairly flimsy & not-very-durable cardboard snap sleeves they seem to favor...
Now you may be wondering about which Lethal Weapon DVD Box Set to pick up, since there are two of them available. The first set has the first 3 films as well as Part 4 all together in a nice Black case. The other has only Parts 1-3 in a shiny silver case. Why get the shiny case box set? This is the special "Director's Cut" Legacy edition, which includes added footage to the first 3 Lethal Weapon movies. Lethal Weapon 1 has about 7 minutes of extra footage cut back into the film which adds some more insight into the Martin Riggs character. (...Read more ›

We all like the lethal weapon movies. Lots of action and comedy at the same time. We have watched it several times already.Published on June 23 2014 by snowbird1
Good 3 movies and great for collectors, but not really an essential.Published on July 28 2003 by Cory G.
First of all, the "Director's Cut" label is misleading. When I see "Director's Cut" on a disc, I expect 20 minutes or more of added footage. Read morePublished on Sept. 14 2001 by Tommy Lovato
