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

The City Council of Orlando, Florida, was only too happy to let the production blow up their old ugly City Hall, with producer Joel Silver paying $165,000 for the privilege. The domed building behind it, with the Coca-Cola sign mounted on it (stage dressing; it was removed afterward), is Orlando's NEW City Hall, which had just opened. In the widescreen shot as Riggs and Murtaugh enter the building, on the right side, the SunTrust (then SunBank) Center, to this day Orlando's tallest building, is plainly shown. Another shot shows the distinctive cylindrical Orlando Utilities Commission building. See more »

Goofs

When Riggs is demonstrating the cop-killer bullets on the firing range he shoots at a bullet proof vest several yards away. As the vest is being bought back to Riggs you can see the bullet hole where the bullet went through the front and back of the vest. This means it penetrated two layers of armor. At the construction site Lorna wears two vests. Travis shoots her from only a few feet away yet the bullet only penetrates one layer of armor, not two. See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

An Enjoyable Action Comedy
26 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

Los Angeles police sergeant Roger Murtaugh and his partner, Sergeant Martin Riggs, arrest Billy Phelps for trying to rob an armored truck, this being just 8 days until Murtaugh is scheduled to retire. In the interrogation room, Billy is murdered by Lieutenant Jack Edward Travis, a vicious former cop who now sells guns that are stolen from evidence storage facilities. The investigation of Travis teams Riggs and Murtaugh up with Sergeant Lorna Cole of the Internal Affairs Division. Martin Riggs has finally meets his match with Lorna Cole, a beautiful but tough policewoman. Later, in a shootout against a street gang, Murtaugh kills a gangster who turns out to be Darrell Smithers, the best friend of Murtaugh's son Nick. A guilt ridden Murtaugh later tries to drink himself to death, but Riggs helps him realize that they must go after Travis, the man that Darrell's gun came from. They are also joined by the hectic Leo Getz whom is now a legitimate real estate agent.

Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, and Joe Pesci are back with director Richard Donner for the third installment of the Lethal Weapon Saga, this time joined by Rene Russo. Just like the first 2, this film has plenty of comedy and allot of amazing action. This is a very enjoyable adventure.
