How ‘Lethal Weapon’ Partnered Dark Humor with Ptsd

14 April 2017 1:31 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The action comedy about…heavily damaged Vietnam vets?

Lethal Weapon often gets heralded at the preeminent buddy cop film, despite the fact that the genre existed for decades prior to its 1987 release. So what makes Lethal Weapon the mold-breaker? Is it (then) wunderkind Shane Black’s razor-sharp script? The legendary cast? The quotable quips? Or is that so many members of the audience identified with the characters because they too possibly felt a general sense of being too old for life’s shit?

How about the fact that Lethal Weapon is the Apocalypse Now of buddy cop movies? It’s true, Shane Black’s script is just as concerned with the heavily damaged psyches of Vietnam War veterans as was Apocalypse Now’s. Nearly every major character in Lethal Weapon, hero and villain alike, served in Vietnam and came back with a hefty amount of baggage.

The end result was a baggy film, more driven by comedy than action, but a very solid hit.

Lethal Weapon 4 was, whilst a very fast production, a more contained one, shot in and around the Los Angeles area. Conversely, the more I read about 2015’s James Bond adventure, Spectre, the more I’m »

Bugs: remembering an ahead-of-its-time tech TV thriller

Arguably, British tech ensemble Bugs paved the way for the likes of Spooks, Sherlock, Torchwood and more...

It feels a long time ago that watching Saturday night TV with the family was the norm, but back in the 1990s, millions crowded around the box for the likes of Noel's House PartyDue SouthThe Generation Game, and of course, Bugs. The latter ran for four series between 1995 and 1999 and arguably holds the distinction of being embryonic of later, more intensive, tech-heavy UK shows including Spooks and Sherlock.

The general Bugs premise involved a team of crime-fighting gadget experts facing a range of modern (now charmingly redundant), technology-centred threats. The main triptych of regulars included Nick Beckett (Jesse Birdsall), Ros Henderson (Jaye Griffiths) and Ed (Neighbours alumnus Craig McLachlan in series »
