Product Description

Product Description

Director's cut of the popular buddy movie. Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) is a family man cop who is about to turn fifty. Cautious by nature, he is less than happy to be paired with Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) when he is assigned to investigate Californian drug baron 'The General' (Mitchell Ryan). Following the death of his wife, Riggs has become a manic loner who no longer cares whether he lives or dies; an approach which causes more than a few problems as he and Murtaugh attempt to bring the General to justice.

From Amazon.co.uk

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), Lethal Weapon 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. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

I,m not going to review the film itself,I think everyone knows the "storyline",if your looking for sheer entertainment,this is it,definitely up there with the Die Hard films,IMO.
The blu-ray transfer is very good, for a film from the 80,s,sharp and clear,BUT,my criticism of this blu-ray version has nothing to do with the transfer,it has to do with the version itself.
WHY is the Director,s Cut available on standard dvd,but not on blu-ray????
I think we all recognise the blu-ray format as the BEST for Home Cinema,so why release the theatrical version on blu-ray when the Director,s Cut is available??????
I realise I,m probably nitpicking here,but I,m thinking,Lethal Weapon Director,s Cut coming soon to blu-ray,more of our "bucks" to be had????
If not having the extended version doesn,t bother you too much,then this blu-ray is a very good quality transfer,imo.
Davy,Scotland.

lethal weapon is a 1987 cop buddy movie that blended in the over zealous blood kill that incorporated the 80s in the action movie genre,mel gibson and danny glover play riggs and murtaugh,two cops who come from different backgrounds,lead very different lives and treat their sense of living differently as gibson is more gung ho who has a death wish since his wife was killed due to him being a cop,glover is a family man,getting on in age who prides himself on playing it safe.

The two cops have to learn to work with eack other,like each other amd then respect each other all the while fighting evil and trying to uncover a murder plot,the film is witty and intense and violent and thats what we love.

'Roger Murtagh' (Danny Glover) is a happily married man living with his wife 'Trish' (Darlene Love)
and children, he's beginning to feel his age as he's just turned 'Fifty'
'Martin Riggs' (Mel Gibson) lives in a run-down mobile home by the beach, he's experienced tragedy
losing his wife, he now lives alone, well, with his dog.
The LAPD who he is employed by consider him a suicide risk, he takes unnecessary risks out on the
street that normal cops wouldn't take.
'Martin' is transferred and is teamed up with 'Roger' being partner to 'Martin' is certainly going to be an
experience for the veteran-cop.
The two's first task is to talk a 'Jumper' out of actually going through with it.......could say the sequence
sets the tone for much of what's to come.
Still the first day they try to arrest a drug-dealer ending up with a shooting and a dip in the dealers pool,
all in a days work.
'Roger' takes his new partner to his home for a meal and a bit of bonding.........before 'Martin' leaves he
says to 'Roger' ''You don't trust me do you'' to which 'Roger' reply's ''Tell you what, if we get through
tomorrow without killing someone, then i'll trust you''
The case they are about to embark upon see's them try to close down a high-profile Drug-Baron and his
team of thugs.
Things get tough for 'Roger' along the way as his daughter 'Rianne' (Traci Wolfe) has been taken hostage
by group they are investigating...........
What a great team-up this was, pure genius, the chemistry between them is pure electric.
The film contains bucket-loads of superb action sequences often tinged with a measure of humour the two
bring to the screen.......certainly worth a re-visit or indeed a first viewing.

Close to retirement, Detective Sergeant Roger Murtaugh is a bit disturbed to find he's breaking in a new partner. Even more so when it turns out to be fellow Detective Martin Riggs, who since the death of his wife has scant regard for life, his own or those around him.

Light on plot and character development, Lethal Weapon none the less shines bright as a beacon of how a buddy buddy film should be done. Roughly an hour and forty five minutes of quips, action, villainy, heroics and cross generational/cultural divides. All what else is needed is a star duo with buoyant chemistry, and Richard Donner's movie has it by the clip load. Mel Gibson is Riggs, trigger happy loony on the ragged edge, wonderfully playing off Danny Glover's "too old for this nonsense" sage old copper. Gary Busey's "psycho's are us" henchman flits in and out the picture with gleeful impact, and Shane Black's script crackles as the stunt work starts to take a hold.

It's a winning formula that the box office punters lapped up. Three sequels, all of which are of differing quality, would follow. 8/10

Just in case you are tempted to buy this, be aware that it is not the director's cut of the movie. the additional scenes are added on as extras and not part of the main movie .

I watched Lethal Weapon 3 today, after buying the trilogy (I haven't seen 4, and I only buy movies I remember seeing and liking). It's still as good and funny as I remembered it; the other two movies are, too. There's just something so right in the chemistry between Murtaugh (Danny Glover) and Riggs (Mel Gibson). I don't think any other actors could have pulled it off. You genuinely care for both of them. Danny Glover's infectious laugh and Gibson's endless one-liners never fail to make me giggle. What's so great is these movies often go from laugh-out-loud funny, to tear jerkingly serious, in a matter of moments. They keep you rivetted to the spot, cheering them on as they fight to right injustice and "get the bad guys". And when they do, you feel real exhileration and want to punch the air very much like Riggs does (like in Lethal Weapon 2 when he brings that whole house collapsing down the hill, killing the bad guys within!) Some would say this is just cliched, painting with numbers movie-making. Maybe it is, but it just works! Even now, decades on, Lethal Weapon 1, 2 3 still hold up well as all-action, no-holds-barred, funny kick-ass flicks. The only thing I don't get is, Lethal Weapon 1 and 2 are 18 cert, with strong language and violence; Lethal Weapon 3 is 15, even though it has strong language (numerous "melon farmer" references, if you know what I mean) and general cussing as well as the obligatory gun violence. Why the lower certification?

Anyway, if you're knew to this series, just buy Lethal Weapon first to decide. But they're all well worth it, in my opinion. Well, at least 1,2 3 are.
