4 Film Favorites: Lethal Weapon (Dbl DVD)
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.--This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

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.
stunts in this set well done, funny and a credit to main actor like Danny Glover etc. They are enjoyed with no bias for future personal failings in life. They entertain on there own merit. Thank you seller for prompt attentions.
