Lethal Weapon Reviews

March 6, 2017
Unfortunately, while Black's assembled all the parts, he's not locked in the conflict early enough, and the good scenes simply aren't enough good to make up for the plot's too-late lock.

[Gibson and Glover] make a great team, and some of their early adventures are exciting. But the film runs out of gas as it turns into an extended chase sequence.

At center is the first big, juicy mythic-hero part Gibson has had since Mad Max.

The story, which proceeds with inevitability, is enlivened by Donner's rousing action sequences.

As action-adventure, it's pointlessly puerile, a movie where the heroes are so childish they try to one-up each other with fancy shots at the pistol range.

Lethal Weapon is a film teetering on the brink of absurdity when it gets serious, but thanks to its unrelenting energy and insistent drive, it never quite falls.

Empty glitz in search of a style.

In this classy all-action thriller, Mel Gibson oozes charm the way his victims ooze blood.
May 20, 2003
The film is all fast action, noisy stunts and huge, often unflattering close-ups, but it packs an undeniable wallop.
January 1, 2000
A vivid, visceral reminder of just how exciting an action film can be.

A pistol-packing, snap-crackling blow-out.

I'm a guy who is bored by shootouts and chase scenes. I've seen it all. But this movie thrilled me from beginning to end.
