Consensus: Murtaugh and Riggs remain an appealing partnership, but Lethal Weapon 3 struggles to give them a worthy new adventure as it cranks up the camp along with the mean-spiritedness.

It's an action movie - we want explosions, not character development. And explosions and car chases are what we get.

What this sequel delivers is still the kind of high-speed roller-coaster action that producer Joel Silver's films often do so well.

Gone With The Twins

The humor and verve outdo the sappier moments, allowing it to be a satisfactory (but not superior) addition to the popular action/adventure series.

TIME Magazine

A cheerfully amoral movie that cannily caters to and satirizes our passion for cinematic violence.

The movie isn't going anywhere, but it goes in circles at top speed.

Manages to be highly entertaining and sanctions all its violence by making the bad guys so despicable that death seems to be the only solution.

Mediocrity wielded by experts.

The Spectator

The idea of going round casually shooting the people who make life boring appeals to me. For this reason alone I get great satisfaction out of the Lethal Weapon formula.
