Our Score
The Lethal Weapon series just gets progressively dumber. It's meant in the nicest possible way, however, as mindless mayhem doesn't come much slicker than in these action extravaganzas starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover as mismatched cops. Even though the law of diminishing returns is starting to have an effect, the sheer scale of the set pieces in this second sequel will keep fans more than satisfied. This time around, Gibson gets a girl after his own heart (cop Rene Russo with an equally impressive collection of battle scars), soon-to-retire partner Danny Glover looks more worried than ever, and Joe Pesci finds himself the butt of the duo's jokes. Stuart Wilson, meanwhile, takes over from Joss Ackland as the obligatory imported British villain and enjoys himself immensely as the former cop-turned-monstrous crime lord. Disengage the brain and enjoy.


Detectives Riggs and Murtaugh team up with a reformed small-time crook and a tough, female internal-affairs investigator to track down a former policeman trafficking impounded weaponry to the bosses of organised crime. Action thriller sequel, starring Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Joe Pesci and Rene Russo.
