Product Overview

With over seven minutes of previously unavailable scenes, the director's cut of Lethal Weapon is a long-overdue present for fans. Riggs's solitary homelife and the tragic loss spurring him in a reckless disregard for his own safety now come into greater focus. We see that recklessness is new scenes underlining the differences between the two cops. Murtaugh, just 50, needs reassurance about his skills at a firing range. Riggs, not caring if he sees another birthday, coolly walks into a schoolyard sniper's field of fire. All the humor and adrenaline that made this original an entertainment milestone are here, too. No scenes have been removed. But new action and new insight are now included. Include yourself in the excitement.System Requirements:Running Time: 109 MinutesFormat: BLU-RAY DISC

Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review The first of four action movies that became a franchise, Lethal Weapon is one of my favorite action movies. A great buddy picture, an edgy Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Conspiracy Theory, Ransom) at the top of his form, a scary villain, and a tight story combine to make a great movie experience...This first entry in the Lethal franchise was the most intimate and personal of the films. It was mainly a two-man show; introducing Martin Riggs (Gibson) and Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover, Lonesome Dove, Predator 2, Grand Canyon) as new and unlikely partners trying to solve a case...It required you put your brain on hold, which the movie didn't force upon you nearly so much earlier. That doesn't stop me from enjoying the movie on perhaps my tenth vitch this one up, along with the others if you liked them. If you've not seen any of the films before, get this one and then decide if you want to continue along in the series. I'll bet you will.

ReviewSource The Washington Post
Review "Lethal Weapon" is a vivid, visceral reminder of just how exciting an action film can be. It demonstrates how that much-abused genre, the police procedural, can be brought to life by a good director (Richard Donner) and a strong cast...Although Gibson's flat American accent is a little disconcerting (he was born here, but moved to Australia at 12), he does bring some of his original Mad Max menace to the role. Constantly at flash point, he's hardly the kind of partner anyone would want...With his hard-nosed portrayal of Murtaugh, Glover manages to avoid becoming Hollywood's black Everyman. It's a neat twist on his bad-cop role in "Witness," and the rapport between these two fine actors seems genuine, thanks in no small part to writer Shane Black's convincing dialogue. After watching Gibson and Glover grow accustomed to each other, develop trust and confidence in each other and charge bullheadedly into dangerous situations, you can't help but hope there's a "Lethal Weapon II."

Quotes
At-A-Glance Film Reviews ...a lot of action...but the real fun is watching the two stars play with their characters and off each other.
Janet Maslin, The New York Times Hard-boiled, high-voltage, hotheaded police thriller. Packs an undeniable wallop.
Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide ...fast paced and entertaining...
Rita Kempley, The Washington Post A pistol-packing, snap-crackling thinking-man's thriller.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times ...this movie thrilled me from beginning to end...
