Riggs: We can’t shoot a dog. People? Okay, but not dogs.
This third sequel to the Lethal Weapon series isn’t the most action packed but adds a few new characters to the mix of the Murtaugh and Riggs characters. We still have Joe Peshi and then we get Rene Russo. Its a fun romp but watch it, the language isn’t the greatest in this movie.
Here is the basic plot…Veteran police detective Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) is only days away from retiring when he and his tough partner, Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson), are roped into an important internal affairs case. Working with the beautiful, no-nonsense Sergeant Lorna Cole (Rene Russo) and aided by the shifty informant Leo Getz (Joe Pesci), Murtaugh and Riggs begin to close in on a black-market weapons operation involving corrupt cop and arms dealer Jack Travis (Stuart Wilson).
The film is again directed by Richard Donner and the score is done by none other than Michael Kamen. He has composed the scores to the previous films and doesn’t hold back for this one either.
You can find the score on Amazon.
