Lethal Weapon 3 is inexcusable crap, but it's sort of intriguing inexcusable crap.

A cheerfully amoral movie that cannily caters to and satirizes our passion for cinematic violence.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

More of the same, but it's now so far removed from any sense of reality, and done with such ham-fisted insistence, it's become a clumsy parody of itself.

Manages to be highly entertaining and sanctions all its violence by making the bad guys so despicable that death seems to be the only solution.

What this sequel delivers is still the kind of high-speed roller-coaster action that producer Joel Silver's films often do so well.

Lethal Weapon 3, although the worst of all four movies, is satisfying enough not only for fans of the franchise.

It would be nice if the films were less violent and more original, but we are stuck with the formula.
