With personal crises and age weighing in on them, LAPD officers Riggs and Murtaugh must contend with deadly Chinese triads that are trying to free their former leaders out of prison and onto American soil.
Martin Riggs is an L.A. cop with suicidal tendencies and Roger Murtaugh is the unlucky police officer with whom Riggs is assigned. Together they uncover a huge drug-smuggling operation, and as their success rate grows so does their friendship.Written by

In the scene with Dixie's house exploding, you can see the yellow prop sticker on Riggs' gun. When they walk to the car right after the explosion and later when Dixie's body is being taken out.
That is not a prop sticker its the gold Beretta emblem on the grips . The early 92F were issued with grips with a gold Beretta emblem on both sides. They were later changed to all black grips. See more »

All versions of "Lethal Weapon" released in Germany before the Director's Cut had a rating FSK 16, and were all slightly cut. The Director's Cut of LW 1 released in 1998 is uncut, but also got an FSK 16 rating. See more »
Lethal Weapon is the first in a series of films that were all good. Richard Donner made an action packed buddy picture that everyone can enjoy. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover were both good in the lead roles and the action sequences are top notch. Kudos to Gary Busey for making a great bad guy.
