Product Description

Product Description

With over seven minutes of previously unavailable scenes, the director's cut of Lethal Weapon is a long-overdue present for fans. Riggs' 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.

Amazon.ca

Mel Gibson set aside his art-house credentials to star as a crazy cop paired with a stable one (Danny Glover) in this full-blown 1987 Richard Donner action picture. The most violent film in the series (which includes three sequels), it is also the edgiest and most interesting. After Gibson's character jumps off a building handcuffed to a man, and Gary Busey (as a cold, efficient enforcer) lets his hand get burned without flinching, there is a sense that anything can happen, and it usually does. Donner's strangely messy visual and audio style doesn't make a lot of aesthetic sense, but it stuck with all four movies. The DVD release includes production notes, Dolby sound, theatrical trailer, optional full-screen and widescreen presentations, optional French soundtrack, and optional English, French, and Spanish subtitles. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

*Note, my score is for this edition, not the film itself*
Every cliché has to start somewhere, and few have a better beginning than Lethal Weapon. The Buddy-Cop genre has been done to death, but Gibson and Glover's chemistry as Riggs and Murtaugh still keeps this one feeling fresh and energetic. By far the grittiest film the franchise, the first Lethal Weapon smartly relies more on good story-telling and engaging characters rather than elaborate set-pieces. That's not to say that this is high-drama, just that it (wisely) puts the story ahead of the eye candy.

With far fewer laughs and explosions here than in the franchise's later films, people that didn't start with the original may be a little disappointed. That's unfortunate, if understandable, but those who can appreciate the roots of the Buddy-Cop story are sure to be pleased.

Extras
"Disappointing" is an inadequate word for this paltry selection. The trailer and some production notes are little more than an insult to fans of this film.

Presentation
As phoned in as the extras seem, they've got nothing on this transfer. This was never a slick, glossy action movie but this disc will have you wondering if there's something wrong with your Blu-Ray player.

Bottom Line
If you don't already own Lethal Weapon, then this might be a worthwhile purchase. But if you already own the DVD then this definitely isn't worth the upgrade. Save your money for a release that lives up to the film's content.

Format: DVD
Director: Richard Donner
Cast: Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Gary Busey, Mitchell Ryan, Tom Atkins, Darlene Love.
Running Time: 105 minutes.
Rated R for cop violence and language.
The ultimate in the cop-buddy action flicks, Richard Donner's "Lethal Weapon" is still an essential part of the action-drama genre to this day. Mel Gibson stars as the unstable, suicidal cop who is still grieving the tragic death of his wife, but finds purpose when he is teamed with over-the-hill Sergeant Danny Glover to investigate the mysterious death of a small-time hooker that jumped/was thrown off a building.
As the duo dives deeper into the case, they realize they are in the middle of a tense, big-time drug traffic arrangement and they are up against some tough cookies (namely Gary Busey and Mitchell Ryan). Gibson is great as the reckless Martin Riggs, using his insane tendencies as adrenaline throughout the film, but often also showing a sofer, tender side that produces a lot of laughs. Glover is his equal as Murtaugh, who feels that he is at his last stand as a police officer, but tags along because he feels his duty as a cop is unfinished. An excellent script by Shane Black and an explosive, taut directorial effort from Donner. Has lost some of its mustard due to numerous sequels and imitations ("Rush Hour" anyone?), but still an extremely fun action-adventure that will delight all those who are Gibson fans and love to laugh and gasp.

Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) is a man who is on the edge, the very edge. He recently lost his wife to a car accident and the only thing that is stopping him from going over the edge is his love of the job, the only thing he has left. Mel Gibson turns in a fantastic performance in the role. Sgt. Murtaugh (Danny Glover) is a stable cop who has been on the force for many years and today is his birthday. For a birthday present he is assigned with Riggs, in order to watch him. Also during his birthday he finds out that an old friends daughter was thrown out a window, and his daughter smokes pot in the house. During the course of the movie the banter between Riggs and Murtaugh is enjoyable. The action is outstanding and the bad guys, especially "Mr. Joshua" (Gary Busey) are truly fanatical. Also during the course of the movie Riggs feels accepted into Murtaugh's family and this helps him move back from the edge a bit. But when Murtaugh's daughter is kidnapped he must move forward again and with Murtaugh create havoc!
A first class action movie with interesting characters and a decent plot. This movie will be enjoyed by anyone who likes action movies or action commedies for that matter.

When I was walking around my local Media Play store a while ago, I was looking through the letterbox section, and I found "Lethal Weapon." At first, I thought it was just the original version, but then I noticed how wonderfully shiny the box was. So I figured, maybe it's just because it's the widescreen version, but then I saw the words "Director's Cut," and I was surprised. I had no idea that there was a director's cut of this movie or its sequels (except for number four). Needless to say, I was not the least bit hesitant in buying this version of the movie. It's great. "Lethal Weapon" is already one of my favorite movies of all time, so this was very cool to me. It's got a few new scenes in it, one of which gets into how reckless and "on the edge" Mel Gibson's character, Martin Riggs, really is. Gibson does an excellent job as the suicidal cop who's ready to die at any given moment, which makes his new partner Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) rather nervous. "Lethal Weapon" is one of those action movies that's actually got a plot, along with good character development. Not to mention, it's pretty funny, which really adds to the enjoyment of the movie. The action in the movie is very exciting as the cops go after drug dealers trying to make one big shipment of heroin. It's a classic "buddy movie," and cannot be missed.
