2:15 He is a bit cavalier about it. That’s what a bomb squad is for.
5:44 He can’t even remember what his own hunch is, haha.
7:41 “Right, oops.”
13:57 She is having far too much fun during this chase scene, love her.
22:12 Oh my god, that’s awful. “Now we got a relationship we can build on.” Oof.
25:58 Retirement plans = things.
32:54 “What are we, required reading or something?'
41:44 They must have filmed this after an actual game, right?
44:51 I don’t know how people can just eat raw onions like that. Bleurgh.
51:36 It’s weird when he’s being earnest.
54:08 “Semantics? I’m always up for some antics.”
57:18 I know he’s unorthodox but why must he do things without backup?
1:03:28 I quite like comparing scars as a way to get to know each other.
1:10:09 They’re a brilliant partnership, flaws and all.
1:11:49 “We’re in the middle of a case… of scotch.”
1:21:25 Love them just messing about in the office.
1:31:47 Convertible train/car is amazing!
1:41:29 “I wish somebody would cover me for a change!”
1:50:00 Why doesn’t he have.a lock on the bathroom door?


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.

Rating: 5/5.
