User Reviews

Lethal Weapon on a tight budget.
5 January 2003 | by (Cork, Ireland) – See all my reviews

I don't know what happened with this film. Did they run out of money? or did they just make it up as they went along? They probably thought it was good when they made it but the studio cut it like a rusty razor.

It is hard to find a redeeming aspect of the film. The characters are all wooden, except for Joe Torry. In the end I don't care if the main character dies or not. A bit of naughty action might have given this film an extra half-star but sadly even this is not present in this sad excuse for film.

1 1/2 stars out of 100!
