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.

Following the film's massive box office success, Warner Brothers planned to give Mel Gibson, producer Joel Silver, and director Richard Donner brand-new black Range Rovers as thank-you presents. However, WB Chairmen Bob Daly and Terry Semel only told Donner that they were invited to a celebratory lunch (the Range Rovers were going to be a surprise gift) and Donner wanted to invite Danny Glover, Joe Pesci, Rene Russo, and writer Jeffrey Boam to join them.

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.
