Riggs and Murtaugh are trying to take down some drug dealers but the they turn out to be not run of the mill drug dealers; they have automatic weapons and helicopters. Eventually they grab one of their vehicles and find a million dollars worth of gold coins or Krudderands in the trunk. Later is Murtaugh is threatened by the men they're pursuing. That's when the Captain reassigns them to protect a man named Leo Getz who is suppose to testify in a big case. When they get to where Leo is, someone tries to kill him and that's when they learn he laundered half a billion dollars worth of drug money. He then takes them to a place he once went to and that's when the people there start shooting at them. Later when they come back they learn that the men work for the South African consulate and have diplomatic immunity. They deduce that they are the ones they were looking for, but because of their diplomatic immunity they can't do anything. Written by
The bottle of cologne that is shot during the destruction of Riggs' trailer is "Hero." The first time we see Riggs going into his trailer, there is an ad for that same cologne on TV. See more »
When Murtaugh is showing Riggs his hobby room, they are supposed to be surprised when the carpenter fires the nail gun. However, moments before he fires it, they both have their hands on their respective guns, ready to react when they hear the 'shot'. See more »
Arjen "Aryan" Rudd:
Mr. Getz got away. A missed opportunity and he gets away. He slips right through our fingers, and into the hands of the police.

Riggs and Murtaugh now face a bunch of south African criminals hiding behind their diplomatic immunity. The duo have to fight for their right to fight back, as the criminals declare war on the cops, and arouse the lethal weapon in Riggs.
The introdction of Joe Pesci's character is a little annoying at first but it soon grows on you and he adds a focus for the comedy element.
Richard Donner again directs the cop duo and again we have a movie well worth watching.
Plenty of action, a few more laughs and a lethal weapon that is still just as sharp, all combine to deliver another great outing for Riggs and Murtaugh.
