I've confused a lot of the good things I remember about the first film with good stuff that in actuality happened in the second.

Pesci's terrific comic performance really gooses the proceedings, but the film also works because of its exciting action content, the presence of Patsy Kensit as Riggs' love interest, and the series-best interplay between the two lead characters.

One of the finest examples of the genre, and, in my humble estimation, one of the greatest sequels put to film. Perhaps deranged hyperbole, but rarely does a follow-up outgun the original film as swiftly as Lethal 2 does.

Returning director Richard Donner seems to have smoothed over the few stylistic rough edges remaining from the earlier film to deliver here two hours of pure, breathless, high-impact entertainment.

Loaded with the usual elements, Lethal Weapon 2 benefits from a consistency of tone that was lacking in the first film.

...funnier, more exciting, and more action-packed than the others in the series.

By concentrating on the often frustrating, funny relationship between the three men, the film gains in humour but loses some of the momentum and panache which distinguished the original.

Despite problems with poor characterization and weak plot, Lethal Weapon 2 nevertheless provides a satisfying combination of male bonding, action and humor...
