Too jokey and cutesy. This is where the series took a wrong turn toward too much comedy, but the public didn't seem to mind.

A film with the same off-center invention and wild energy as the original.

Simplistic and manipulative, but it's hard to trump the Gibson and Glover team.

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.

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

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...
