If there's an original moment in this movie, producer Joel Silver and director Richard Donner sincerely apologize.

The franchise is back to its middling ways with Lethal Weapon 3, a sporadically entertaining entry.

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

Yes, there is a shot of Mel Gibson's bum, and, no, director-producer Richard Donner still hasn't learned the first thing about directing action so that it has any coherence or beauty.

It's bigger, but it ain't necessarily better.

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

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.
