Lethal Weapon 3

Critics Consensus

Murtaugh and Riggs remain an appealing partnership, but Lethal Weapon 3 struggles to give them a worthy new adventure as it cranks up the camp along with the mean-spiritedness.

Audience Reviews for Lethal Weapon 3

  • Mar 13, 2016
    On par with the first two and I was quite surprised how good the action was too, The plot was a little different from the others but not that much it's still predictable, There was a few serious scenes where Mel and Danny could flex their acting muscles for a few minutes that worked well, It's fun and action packed and it just has enough humour to lighten the mood at times.

    Disclaimer: The following review is for "Lethal Weapon 3: Director's Cut" although it will be referred to as simply "Lethal Weapon 3". "Lethal Weapon 3" is an okay action film. "Lethal Weapon 3" has got good acting from "Mel Gibson" and "Danny Glover". The plot to this film is alright, there are a few scenes which like the previous film were not necessary. Something I do like about this film is the comedy. The action scenes in this film aren't great, in fact the final climatic action scene is boring. The music in this film is pretty good. I give "Lethal Weapon 3" a 6.5/10.

    The more the sequels that come out, the bigger the necessity for (take your pick): i. Increase the action dose. ii. Increase the humor. iii. Increase its accessibility for modern (younger) viewers. iv. Increase the number of hot(?) female candidates for Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson). So Richard Donner said: "Screw it. I'll pick all of the above!", and so, the series becomes more mainstream, forces more sentimental humor, brings more emotional punches to the audience so that the connection between Riggs and Murtaugh becomes more heartfelt (wait... what?), and decreases in manliness, the latter aspect being the one that made the old-school action films so great and different from what is seen today. 60/100

    Lethal Weapon 3 isn't a bad movie. It isn't as great as its two predecessors, but it's still pretty good. The problem with Lethal Weapon 3 is that it's forgettable. The witty banter, likable characters and exciting action are all still here, but it's too safe. What I mean by it being safe is that it steers to much into convention. It just seems like another Lethal Weapon movie but without the spark that made the first two great. There's a lot of good moments in this one and the ending shoot out features a great action set piece. But it relies too heavily on the events that happened in the first two movies and has little character development. Leo Getz is even more annoying in this one and seems a bit shoehorned in (at least they got rid of him early on). Letter Grade: B
