Storyline

Roger Murtaugh, a veteran cop who goes back to work after heart surgery, is told that he has a new partner, Martin Riggs, an ex Navy SEAL from Texas. They meet for the first time when they respond to a hostage situation. Riggs goes in and deals with it by daring the perps to shoot him. He ends up killing them including the one who has bomb strapped on. He gets the hostages out just before the bomb goes off. Murtaugh thinks Riggs is trying to kill himself. It seems like his wife was killed in an accident. They go to where a dead body which appears to be a suicide. Murtaugh thinks it's an open and shut case but Riggs does't think it's a suicide and Murtaugh is not happy about it. They go to see the man's wife and after being with her and their son, Murtaugh thinks it's not a suicide too. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

A worthy update
16 October 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

"Lethal Weapon" sure didn't offer much promise in the pre-season trailer. It honestly seemed like a generic version of what made the movies memorable (the magic, if you will). Plus, it didn't feel at all necessary. Part of that is because the original movie holds a very special place.

But I think they really have something here.

It's because of the characters. It's easy to accept Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford as the buddy cops because of the already established Gibson-Glover relationship. I didn't find myself comparing tics or deliveries between both sets of actors because this didn't xerox the movies. There's room for new faces to and new writing to chart different paths for these characters.

It's got flashy editing, serious production values and the seeds of what could be a winning partnership. I dunno, maybe I just really miss "The Good Guys". But it's Crawford who owns this premiere, and also the reason to give this a shot.

7/10
