Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 03/04/1987
"...Unrelenting energy and insistent drive....LETHAL WEAPON is a piece of bravado filmmaking and tech credits are first-rate throughout..."
Los Angeles Times - 03/06/1987
"...Donner puts it into bright, jazzy overdrive, and the cinematography and music are just right: gritty, gleaming, cartoon-hard..."
Total Film - 04/01/2004
"Screenwriter Shane Black's explosive debut patented the modern buddy pic: brash, crass and dangerous to know."

Product Description:

Two tough Los Angeles cops, one who carries a lethal weapon (Glover) and the other who is one (Gibson), are teamed as partners in a highly unusual case involving a massive international ring which has its roots in Vietnam - a place they are both all too familiar with. This film, with its fresh, energetic combination of comedy, drama and action, has managed to spawn three highly successful sequels.
