Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

The series formula started to kick in with this immediate sequel to Lethal Weapon, but that doesn't necessarily make it a weak movie. Joe Pesci joins the fold, Richard Donner directs again, and Mel Gibson and Danny Glover return as LAPD partners, their relationship smoother now that Gibson's character has recovered from his maddening grief over his wife's death. But the reckless Mel and cautious Danny equation, good for a million laughs, settles into place in this story involving a South African smuggler and a new girlfriend (Patsy Kensit) for Gibson. The movie is hardly comfy, though. The last act gets nasty, and a climactic fight between Gibson (who gets the worst of it) and some high-kicking villain is ugly. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars To miss this would be Lethal 7 Nov 2001
Format:DVD
In my humble opinion, the best of all four of the "Weapons". The characters are well established and the addition of Pesci is pure genius if not a little of a show stealer. A great piece of casting in Josh Ackland as the evil baddy and even Patsy Kensit looks gorgeous and believe me I am not one of her admirers. The action is fast paced, the storyline is good (only feeling dated due to the fall of Aparthied) and the performances from all involved are top notch. This is just one long non stop rollercoaster, especially the destroying of the house on stilts (yes that is a real house that they had to build to full regs due to local laws--just to destroy it!!). This was made for DVD, the explosions and sound effects just jump out at you thanks to the advances made in home sound technology. A bargain and a must for all Gibson/Glover fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..CLASSIC 80'S SEQUEL.." 21 April 2012
Format:DVD
This is the sequel to the popular 80s action classic Lethal weapon, Lethal weapon is a superior sequel with once again keeping up a cool story full of action and violence and over the top stunts and a few added twists to the characters stories, the cast once again is brilliant with the addition of a few new faces mainly Joe Pesci and the lovely young Patsy Kensit. This is a great sequel and a must for big fans of 80s action movies!

5.0 out of 5 stars the stuff that sequels should be made of 22 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
As much as Lethal Weapon may have stepped outside its genre trappings to strike an unexpected chord, its sequel was the film that gave the series the legs it needed to continue onward and upward.

While it still plumbs some dark, painful subject matter for its lead characters, Lethal Weapon 2 skews lighter by treating the Murtaugh-Riggs dynamic as the stuff of fruitful comedy, an approach intensified by the slightly annoying, but still faithfully endearing, Leo Getz character, whom Joe Pesci makes all his own.

But it's the supreme comfort of Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, with both each other and the script that rockets this to the top of buddy movies to such an extent that it became ripe for parody.

The director again proves his command of this material with a handful of memorable scenes, and especially his use of Gibson in his trademark "lethal weapon" scenes, which coined the franchise title. Even though Gibson is a lot less depressed in this film you still completely believe him as a guy that has nothing to lose.

Where as the first lethal weapon really successfully put the story of the franchise out there, It was still not quite hitting the mark for me, but here, there is the stuff that sequel dreams are made of.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big big sequel. 2 Mar 2011
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Intrepid cop partners Riggs & Murtaugh are on the trail of South African diplomats who are using their diplomatic immunities to engage in criminal activities.

With the success of Lethal Weapon in 1987 it made common sense to follow it with a sequel. All the same elements were in place, cast, director and writers were all back for another slice of buddy buddy action bonanza. The only change of course is the villains, here represented by Joss Ackland & Derrick O'Connor's weasel South African bastardos. Joe Pesci enters the fray as the comical Leo Getz, a Federal Witness that the cop duo have to "babysit" till trial.

Right from the off the tone of the film is set as our ears split and our eyes get dazzled by a high speed car chase. Riggs & Murtaugh are in hot pursuit whilst exchanging a now customary difference of opinion as regards police work. We know they are mates and we know that Riggs is still the lethal weapon and Murtaugh is old school copper. So whilst there's nothing new in that the formula remains the same, the makers do flesh out the relationship more as the film progresses. With one or two scenes absolute gold dust as the boys' lives come under serious threat. We are now, in spite of the carnage that surrounds them, involved with them, yes, such is the charm of their relationship, we care. It's good writing, regardless of the charges from some quarters that these film's are nasty shallow excuses for making money.

It's fair to say that this is Gibson's movie, because it's written that way. Some of Riggs' back story is filled in and he even gets a love interest in the slender form of Patsy Kensit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is this a classic? 12 Sep 2010
By RA
Format:DVD
Asides from the laughable South African accent attempts and the fact that one of the only genuine South Africans is killed off within the first 15 minutes, this is classic Riggs and Murtaugh action! Great one liners, good action and a few anti-hero characters that will remain in the memory for a long time to come (hey?)
