Loved the first Lethal Weapon, whilst the second was a bit of a disappointment, but thankfully this third installment was perhaps the best of the lot. It doesn’t take long to be right back in the thick of things, with our heroes setting off a bomb within ten minutes of arriving on screen.
I actually liked how things got more serious as the story went along, and there were moments of real heartfelt insight. Their fight on the boat was a wonderful way to get to know their partnership even better, and it contrasted nicely with the hilarity in the office.
Plus, Rene Russo was a great addition to the team, always good to see a female character holding her own and, in fact, showing the boys up on occasion! Really loved this.
