24 May 2004 | Special-K88
watchable though it never really takes off
Third installment of the Lethal Weapon franchise begins with old pro Glover only eight days away from retirement and stricken with grief by the feeling that something bad will happen. It inevitably does when he and partner Gibson cross paths with a rogue ex-cop-turned-gunrunner (Wilson), have their case aided/hampered by realtor Pesci, in addition to Internal Affairs watchdog Russo. The cast is game as usual, but they're let down by an uninspired script that too often throws out forced humor, and direction that is extremely slow. An action-packed finale is definitely the film's highpoint, but it still falls short in comparison to the two other films. **½

Nick Chinlund and Pete Antico, who play the respective characters of Hatchett and Hubert Bartholomew Smith, later appeared in Con Air (1997). They also both guest starred in the final season of Walker, Texas Ranger (1993), marking just two of numerous appearances by Lethal Weapon veterans on that show.


Martin Riggs: Hey, Rog?
Roger Murtaugh: Yeah?
Martin Riggs: GRAB THAT CAT!
Roger Murtaugh: AGH!


The CHP squad seen when Leo arrives after the motorcycle chase switches from a mid-1980s Ford LTD Crown Victoria to a Dodge Diplomat (the Diplomat was the main squad for the CHP during the mid to late 1980s).

Crazy Credits

During the credits you can hear that another bomb has been discovered. When Martin and Roger show up in their car, they have this discussion again whether or not to go in. Just as they stop at the building, the whole building explodes and you can hear Martin saying, while backing up the car, "I hope nobody saw us".

Alternate Versions

The USA Director's Cut (Unrated) has about 3-4 minutes of never-before-seen extra footage including the following scenes: Trish forces Roger to wear body armor; Rianne visits Riggs, who's watching the Stooges with Sam and the Rottweiler, at his trailer, to which McGee the carpenter added the sundeck seen in Lethal Weapon 4 (1998) ; Riggs, Murtaugh, and Lorna threaten to run over Tyrone's head with a car if he didn't give up Travis.
