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.

A scene which was cut from the Theatrical cut of this movie, but restored in the Director's cut was a scene that took place between the scene where Riggs and Lorna compare scars/wounds and the scene where Riggs finds Murtaugh out on his boat. It shows Riggs at his beachside trailer (which appears to be undergoing some kind of renovation) on his couch watching a Three Stooges movie with both Sam and the dog from the Warehouse. The contractor McGee (who worked on Murtaugh's hobby room in Lethal Weapon 2 (1989)) also appears in the scene as the contractor performing the renovations to Riggs' trailer. Later in the scene, Rianne drives over to the trailer and tells Riggs of her concerns about Murtaugh not coming home that previous night. See more »
In the "Special Thanks to" section of the end credits, one of the cities thanked is St. Petersburg, Florida, but it is misspelled as "St. Petersberg". 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.
