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.
Martin Riggs finally meets his match in the form of Lorna Cole, a beautiful but tough policewoman. Together with Roger Murtaugh, his partner, the three attempt to expose a crooked former policeman and his huge arms racket. The crooked cop (Jack Travis) thwarts them at every turn, mainly by killing anyone who is about to talk, but Murtaugh has personal problems of his own as his family are brought into the equation.

Leo Getz was originally not in the script and all of his scenes were written in afterwards. In the original script Leo had left L.A. for New York. See more »
When Riggs is following the villains' pickup truck, they turn
into a highway and a plane is spotted landing, it is a Lockheed L-1011 Tristar from Delta Airlines. In the next shot, apparently on the same spot, the plane suddenly changes to an Airbus A300 from American Airlines. See more »
Lethal Weapon 3 is the thrid film in the series and just as good. Mel Gibson, Danny Glover and the funny Joe Pesci are all back for the fun. This time they add the sexy Rene Russo to the mix who can hang with Riggs and is just as crazy. Underreated actor Stuart Wilson makes another good bad guy in this good sequel.
