Lethal Weapon (1987)


Richard Donner


Mel Gibson

Danny Glover

Gary Busey


A veteran policeman, Murtaugh, is partnered with a younger, suicidal officer, Riggs. They both have one thing in common: hating working in pairs. Now they must learn to work with one another to stop a gang of drug smugglers.


It’s been a long time since I watched the Lethal Weapon movies and recently I’ve been watching the TV show which made me want to go back to the source material. Thankfully they’re all on Hulu.com right now so I don’t have to dig out my blurays.

Totally forgot that the movie starts out with boobs. Very 80s intro. Boobs, big hair, and sax.

Mel Gibson was pretty, also you see his butt, in case you were wondering.

Danny Glover has the titular line.

Like Die Hard this movie was set at Christmas time and it made me realize we’re lacking lately in Christmas action movies. Hollywood should get on that.

I like this movie, I like the franchise, so honestly my review isn’t going to dissect it like I sometime do with action movies. There’s gun, shit blows up, lots of cursing, and drugs. Honestly what more could you want?
