MOVIE REVIEW:Lethal Weapon 3


Lethal Weapon 1 and 2 were both critical and commercial success and
high points for the buddy cop genre. They helped set up the formula but
by the third film ended up falling into it's own traps: making it the
weakest the series.

After years working together Sergeant Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) is
eight days from retirement. But after messing up a bomb disposal,
Murtaugh Sgt. Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) are demoted to patrolmen where
they stop a robbery of an armoured car. This leads them getting
involved with an investigate led by tough cookie Internal Affairs
officer Sgt. Lorna Cole (Rene Russo), investigating ex-officer Jack
Travis (Stuart Wilson), selling automatic gun and armour-piercing

There is a decent idea for a plot, corrupt cops selling powerful
weapons from the police evidence. It was done in a realistic way in
American Gangster where the police sold drugs to dealers. But Lethal
Weapon 3 does take a more ridiculous route, with the main baddie just
going into a police station to kill a guy and kidnapping a senior
police officer. The film also falls into it's own clichés (which the
Simpsons end up making fun), with Murtaugh taking more risks despite
being on the edge of retirement, Murtaugh and Riggs being demoted,
Riggs and Cole having a hostile relationship before having sex, more
over the top action sequences and looking for the smallest excuse for
an action sequence. The film's humour was weaker, with Gibson's Three
Stooges stick getting old and Joe Pesci's performance as an obnoxious
real estate agent was very obnoxious not funny (he is so much better
playing sociopathic Mafia hit-man in Martin Scorsese films). The film's
attempt to be dramatic also felt forced and the main villain, Travis
lacked menace to the villains of the other Lethal Weapon films.

But whilst there are weaknesses in the film, there are some merits.
Russo was very convincing as a tough, kick-ass woman, and well, I enjoy
seeing women beating up men. There is still good chemistry between
Glover and Riggs and Richard Donner does know how to direct an action
sequence. As stated there is a good basis for a plot, with a real issue
about cop killer bullets. It is still a well made movie.

Overall Lethal Weapon 3 is the weakest series, but it is still an okay
film when watching it with the other three films.


*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Lethal Weapon 3 for me has always been the weakest of the quadrilogy.
Gibson and Glover along with Pesci return as Riggs, Murtagh and Leo on
the tail of an ex officer Jack Travis (Stuart Wilson) supplying weapons
to the local gangs. Things become personal for Murtagh when just a week
from retirement he ends up killing one of his son's friends who has one
of the guns supplied by Travis shoots at Riggs and Murtagh .

Meanwhile Rene Russo plays an officer from Internal Affairs Larna Cole
assigned to keep an eye on the two as she is investigating Travis. The
comedy chemistry is still there between the three with some fun banter
with Lana and Travis makes a fearsome adversary with great acting from
Wilson. Furthermore the action was still exciting particularly the end
shootout, but I just didn't think the story was as strong as the
previous two and the script seemed a bit worn out with the comedy not
as witty. It's still great fun however particularly at the start when
Riggs and Murtagh go into a building complex to look at a bomb that has
been planted and when a woman tries to come on Glover as his driving.
Disappointing compared to one and two, but still fairly entertaining.
