easy to watch action,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lethal Weapon : The Complete Collection (4 Disc Box Set)  [DVD]  (DVD)
The lethal weapon films are pretty much easy to watch action films with the odd bit of emotional right of passage stuff thrown in for good measure.
The first film is perhaps the harder to watch as it needs to set the characters and form the relationships between the two hero’s, ultimately leading to their partnership being formed and Riggs coming to terms with his wife’s death.
The second film relies on the fact that you’ve seen the first so you know who’s who and what their relation ships are as do all the following films but the stories aren’t that complex that you don’t necessarily need to have seen them it’s a basic spot the good guys spot the bad guys sorts story.
So to not spoil the films too much for anyone who hasn’t seen these ill keep the rest brief;
- The second film is sort of a revenge film; both the leads have a score to settle.
- The third shows Riggs moving on and finding new love
- And the fourth shows the duo tackling with getting older
Basically easy to watch action movies with a feel good factor.
What’s in the box? Well…
4 DVDs containing the 4 films
Not a lot of extras first 3 might have only had trailers, if that (if I remember correctly)
The first 3 films come in directors cuts but I only noticed one scene in one film that wasn’t on my original VHS, so may mainly be little stuff. The fourth is on a double sided disc, 1 side film 1 side extras. These are extras for that film.
So if you’ve seen them your probably here to buy or to buy if the price is right. If you haven’t I’m surprised you haven’t. It might have been nice for an extras disc with some retrospect interviews, behind the scenes stuff for the 4 and a gag reel or something like that for the collectors amongst us.
