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.
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.See all Product Description

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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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
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.
