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 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.Written by

Marble slabs that were once part of the old City Hall, destroyed for the film, are now used as tabletops at a local outdoor café in Orlando, Florida. See more »
When Riggs and Murtaugh pull up to the convenience store and get out of the truck, the windows are clearly rolled up. But after Riggs crashes Reanne's movie shoot and they come back to the truck, the windows are rolled down because Riggs easily leans out of the window to yank off the parking ticket. See more »
Those doctors are savages. I mean, where does it say that a gunshot wound requires a rectal exam?
[Murtaugh rolls his eyes at Riggs]
Yeah. With a telescope big enough to see Venus!
I guess all they saw was Uranus, huh?
Oh, that's great, Riggs. Ha ha. That's great. Well, you know what I say? They FUCK you at the hospital! First they DRUG you, then they FUCK you! And when they're done FUCKING you, along comes the insurance company and FUCKS you some more! Ten dollars for a FUCKING aspirin that's ...

During the credits you can hear that another bomb has been discovered. When Martin and Roger show up in their car, they have this discussion again whether or not to go in. Just as they stop at the building, the whole building explodes and you can hear Martin saying, while backing up the car, "I hope nobody saw us". See more »
The USA Director's Cut (Unrated) has about 3-4 minutes of never-before-seen extra footage including the following scenes: Trish forces Roger to wear body armor; Rianne visits Riggs, who's watching the Stooges with Sam and the Rottweiler, at his trailer, to which McGee the carpenter added the sundeck seen in Lethal Weapon 4 (1998) ; Riggs, Murtaugh, and Lorna threaten to run over Tyrone's head with a car if he didn't give up Travis.

Third installment of the Lethal Weapon franchise begins with old pro Glover only eight days away from retirement and stricken with grief by the feeling that something bad will happen. It inevitably does when he and partner Gibson cross paths with a rogue ex-cop-turned-gunrunner (Wilson), have their case aided/hampered by realtor Pesci, in addition to Internal Affairs watchdog Russo. The cast is game as usual, but they're let down by an uninspired script that too often throws out forced humor, and direction that is extremely slow. An action-packed finale is definitely the film's highpoint, but it still falls short in comparison to the two other films. **½
