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
