A veteran cop, Murtaugh, is partnered with a young suicidal cop, Riggs. Both having one thing in common; hating working in pairs. Now they must learn to work with one another to stop a gang of drug smugglers.
Eight years on, a new evil rises from where the Batman and Commissioner Gordon tried to bury it, causing the Batman to resurface and fight to protect Gotham City... the very city which brands him an enemy.
Martin Riggs is an L.A. cop with suicidal tendencies and Roger Murtaugh is the unlucky police officer with whom Riggs is assigned. Together they uncover a huge drug-smuggling operation, and as their success rate grows so does their friendship. Written by

Riggs's firearm is a Beretta 92F, meanwhile Murtaugh's gun is a classic Smith & Wesson model 19. See more »
In the Director's Cut DVD, the scene in which Riggs bravely puts himself into the line of fire of a sniper shooting at kids in a school yard, you can see Mel Gibson sneaking a look down at the pavement to find his mark as he's walking forward before shooting the sniper. After he's shot the sniper and bends over to pick up his empty clip, the mark can be briefly seen on the bottom of the screen. See more »
[Endo shocks Riggs with a device]
Hit him again!
[Martin groans as his body shakes violently]
[soft but enthused]
Hit him again.
[Endo hits him again for longer]
C'mon, tell me about the shipment!
[yells and spouts giberrish, then spits at Endo, tries to reach Joshua]
I swear I'm gonna fucking kill the both of you.
Yeah, yeah, very funny. Now what about the *shipment*?

I've seen Lethal Weapon over 100 times and it just keeps getting better! Mel Gibson plays a crazed cop who teams up with a family cop (Danny Glover). At first, they can't stand each other, but as the movie rolls along, they end up with this type of bond. I'm sure that most people or everyone has seen this wonderful movie. It has plenty of action and violence. I love the chemistry between Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. And who could forget, Gary Busey, Mr. Joshua, a VERY fitting role for the wonderful actor. He couldn't have been replaced for that role. No one could have done a better job than Busey. Go Gary! I love the end! One of the best fitting scenes in film history. I also admire Gibson and Busey doing their own stunts, and studying martial arts, just to make 4 nights of filming a cult fighting scene for this excellent movie. This one is definitely a winner! If you haven't seen this superb film, then I STRONGLY recommend that you do! Great film!
