Admittedly, it pretty cool to see Martin Riggs burst through the door the second the bad guy says "There's no more heroes left in the world" despite having just received brutal electric shock torture that will leave you cringing with shooting discomfort.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Screenwriter Shane Black's approach to creating unconventional characters for "Lethal Weapon" created a new template for the buddy movie genre, which dates back to the silent era of Laurel and Hardy.

The best in an overrated series thanks to Gibson's intense performance as a suicidal cop.

The film is all fast action, noisy stunts and huge, often unflattering close-ups, but it packs an undeniable wallop.
