As I'm sure many of you know, if you want to get the ultimate definitive editions (so far) of the first three 'Lethal Weapon' flicks, this is the set to get! Included in each movie: at least a few extra minutes that director Richard Donner rescued from the cutting-room floor. Seven minutes are returned to LW1, featuring Murtaugh (Danny Glover) checking if he's still "got it" at the police firing range, Riggs bearing down on a schoolyard sniper, and a few other added bits. The highlight of LW2's new footage is Leo Getz (Joe Pesci) using his skills as a former mob accountant to recall the address of the stilt house. Not too much is added to number 3; probably the most noticeable of this is our heroes' use of a high-performance automobile to wring info out of a high-society gangsta.
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...

The Lethal Weapon Legacy DVD box set collects the first three films in the series. Each film in the set is the Director's Cut version, meaning that there is footage incorporated into the motion pictures, that was not in the original theatrical release. The trilogy is directed by Richard Donner. Here's how the set breaks down.
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.

After Mel Gibson made himself a household name with the Mad Max Trilogy, he took a little time off, then returned to the screen in 1987 for the successful "buddy-cop" movie: Lethal Weapon. You can't deny the chemistry between Gibson's Martin Riggs & Danny Glover's Roger Murtaugh. The relationship has the perfect blend of dramatic heart and humor, which is the key to the success of the film. Initially, no sequel was planned (in fact the original filmed ending had both men saying goodbye forever), but director Richard Donner thought the characters were so good together, he just couldn't end the picture with them going their seperate ways. As a result, Lethal Weapon 2 was released two years later, adding Joe Pesci to the mix of this winning formula as Leo Getz ("Whatever you want...Leo Getz"). With the huge success of the sequel, it was only a matter of time before Lethal Weapon 3 hit theaters in 1992, adding yet another new key character, Rene Russo's Lorna Cole, a sort of "alter ego" of the Martin Riggs character. Since these movies are based on good chemistry between the characters, it's amazing to me how they're able to add new elements without deterring the original winning formula. Blind luck? Or Hollywood genius? You be the judge.
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. (...
