Review

Daft as it may be, cartoonish as it often is, Lethal Weapon tries hard to be deep. And now and then it succeeds, coming up with ways to draw out underlying emotional stuff beneath all the action-coppery.

There’s a scene tonight where Riggs and Murtaugh end up in the confessional of a Catholic church, on either side of the grille, and have an almost touching heart-to-heart. The moment of honesty doesn’t last long, and there’s not a lot of absolution to be had, but it’s a nice grace note amid all the thumping beats.

Mind you, the crazy cliffhanger climax of the plot – about a man murdered for cheating on his wife – has to be seen to be fully disbelieved.

Summary

Riggs and Murtaugh investigate a series of violent crimes with one thing in common - the victims are all members of the same church. While working on the case, Riggs faces more personal anguish as the first anniversary of Miranda's death sends him to a new low. Elsewhere, Roger and Trish disagree with Roger Jr about his future.
