Storyline

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.

Trivia

Bill Frederick, the mayor of Orlando, Florida, was the policeman who said "Bravo!" to Murtaugh and Riggs after the explosion of the building in the opening scene, which was the old Orlando City Hall. See more »

Goofs

When Riggs and Murtaugh pull up to the convenience store and get out of the truck, the windows are clearly rolled up. But after Riggs crashes Reanne's movie shoot and they come back to the truck, the windows are rolled down because Riggs easily leans out of the window to yank off the parking ticket. See more »

Still has the magic
16 June 2003 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

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.
