Lethal Weapon 2 (1989)



Reviews and Comments

In the second Lethal Weapon film, Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) is a little less psychotic, and the script is (needlessly) punched up with one-liners now standard in films of the action genre. The one-liners aren't as terrible as some, but they are nevertheless a distraction from the case at hand. Furthermore, the finale is somewhat of a let down. Gibson and Danny Glover, however, are still fascinating to watch together, and a lot of the spirit of the original film is reproduced here. It makes for a great two hours, particularly for a sequel.
