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.

This is the only Lethal Weapon film that does not feature the villains threatening Murtaugh's family or coming into their home. See more »
When fighting with the criminal in the fake armored car near the beginning, the criminal fires a round at the window. It doesn't leave a hole, showing that it is indeed bullet proof. A few seconds later, Riggs slams on the brakes, and the criminal flies through the same window, shattering it. Also, later in the film, it is said that the bullets in the armored car suspect's gun were armor piercing, so it should have gone through the window. See more »

During the credits you can hear that another bomb has been discovered. When Martin and Roger show up in their car, they have this discussion again whether or not to go in. Just as they stop at the building, the whole building explodes and you can hear Martin saying, while backing up the car, "I hope nobody saw us". 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.
