From Amazon.co.uk

Arguably Hollywood’s premier mismatched cops franchise, the four Lethal Weapon movies are gathered together in high definition for the first time, in this highly entertaining, action-packed boxset.

The mismatched cops here? That’d be livewire Riggs, played by Mel Gibson, and straight-down-the-line, edging closer to retirement Murtaugh, played by Danny Glover. The pair have a terrific chemistry together, and by the end of the fourth film, the franchise has also brought in the likes of Joss Ackland, Patsy Kensit, Rene Russo, Joe Pesci and Chris Rock, amongst others.

The best Lethal Weapon film? That’d be the first, though, when Riggs really does feel like an unpredictable character on the edge. That’s softened as the franchise moves on, where it favours comedy over such elements of drama. But it’s not a bad transition, and the movies remain just as enjoyable. For when the Lethal Weapon films do comedy, it really works. Just look at the scene with the bomb attached to the toilet in Lethal Weapon 2.

It’s a strong collection of films, each of which has benefited from a high definition upgrade. Plus, there’s the bonus of an added disc of bonus features to get your teeth into, too. --Jon Foster

Product Description

Starring Mel Gibson & Danny Glover, Lethal Weapon is the first buddy action film franchise. Directed by Richard Donner (Superman 1-3, 16 Blocks) the films were a phenomenon in the genre spawning a legacy of films on the heels of its success.

Get all of the heart pounding action and side splitting comedy in high-definition Blu-ray for the first time ever! Featuring all 4 original theatrical releases of the ground breaking franchise available in a special collection with a new bonus documentary

Lethal Weapon: Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) is no ordinary cop. He's a Mad Max gone maniacal, a man whose killing expertise and suicidal recklessness make him a Lethal Weapon to anyone he works against. Or with.

Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) is an easygoing homicide detective with a loving family, a big house and a pension he doesn't want to lose. Imagine Murtaugh's shock when he learns his partner is a guy with nothing left to lose; wild-eyed, burnt-out Martin Riggs. Lethal Weapon is the trill-packed story of two Vietnam-vets-turned-cops who have just one other thing in common; both hate to work with partners. But their partnership becomes the key to survival when a routine murder investigation leads to all-out, take-no-prisoners, martial-arts-and-machine-guns war with an international heroin ring.

Director Richard Donner moves that war at two speeds: fast and faster. Hot LA days and nights explode in one show-topping scene after an other, culminating in a no-holds-barred battle between Riggs and his Angel-of-Death nemesis (Gary Busey) - an electrifying sequence incorporating three martial-art-styles and requiring four full nights to film. Fierce, fast and frequently funny, Lethal Weapon fires off round after round of can't miss entertainment.

Lethal Weapon 2: Murtaugh is still the rock-solid family man. Riggs is still the reckless daredevil, but now he counts the odds b

5.0 out of 5 stars Theatrical vs Director's Cuts 16 Dec 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
There seems to be some anger and confusion that only the theatrical versions of films I - III are contained in this boxset. I hope the following will help.

To begin with, you must understand that the so called Director's Cuts released on DVD are nothing of the sort. They are studio cuts in which deleted scenes were inserted back into the movies for some extra £££. Richard Donner's preferred versions are the theatrical ones. Even writer Shane Black stated as much in a recent magazine interview (Esquire if you're interested). He talked about the introduction of Riggs in Lethal Weapon. You don't need to show how crazy he is in the Christmas Tree Drug Deal scene and also show how crazy he is in the Schoolyard Sniper scene. Is the extra scene cool? Hell yeah! But is it necessesary?

These are the versions everyone involved in production seems to be happy with. The versions that they released in cinemas. And when the time has come to overhaul the entire collection and add interviews and commentaries. Which versions have they chosen?

I am pleased to say that all the 'Directors Cut' scenes are included, but they're back where they belong. In the deleted scenes section.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu Review 26 - Lethal Weapon Collection 21 Nov 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Lethal Weapon Collection Blu-ray Review

Distributor: Warner Home Video, UK

The 1980's was a great time to be a movie fan and Lethal Weapon is for sure, a classic example of a great 1980's movie. Back when people had hair styles and a sense of dress that today would seem almost criminal, along comes one of the best cop/buddy movies of all time, which ultimately helped to re-ignite the genre and produced three sequels, all of which continued the series while still managing to bring something new to their audience.

This new Blu-ray release from Warner Home Video which is not region locked, presents all four Lethal Weapon movies with parts 2 and 4 appearing uncut for the first time in the UK. The first three films in the franchise have previously seen DVD releases with deleted scenes cut back into the movie and labelled as directors cuts. For this Blu-ray collection, Warner Home Video have chosen to present the films in their original theatrical cuts only, however marketing issues aside, this accurately represents the directors preferred intention and all of the previously added extended footage which was cobbled together from cut scenes, can be found elsewhere in this set.

Lethal Weapon 1 & 2 have been previously available as single Blu-ray releases, however the transfers had issues of edge enhancement and varying quality. The first two films in this set have thankfully been given an upgrade over their original releases with their new 1080p transfers being much improved. In particular, colours and black levels here are stronger than in the original releases with a minimal amount of grain present during certain scenes in the second film. Previous issues of edge enhancement and crushing thankfully appear resolved in the new transfers.
