Lethal Weapon 3 (1992)
« on: December 26, 2012, 06:30:35 pm »

There are a lot of franchises where the first 3 movies usually produces at least one installment that just doesn't quite deliver. Godfather. Star Wars. Jurassic Park. Indian Jones. Die Hard. You get the picture. But with Lethal Weapon 3, the same group working on the movie manage to do the impossible by creating yet another fantastic ride that delivers in both the action department as well as the comedy. Just like Joe Pesci inclusion in Lethal Weapon 2, they decided to add another player into the mix with Rene Russo as Lorna Cole who is basically the mirror image of Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) in style, wit and tenacity.  I loved Rene in this one for sure. She more or less took over the role that Leo Getz (Pesci) provided the last installment. That's not to say that we don't get more Getz here. We do. Just in smaller dosage.

Along with the return characters including Danny Glover who still has amazing chemistry with Mel, we get another great actor to play the lead bad guy. Stuart Wilson as Jack Travis made an exceptional villain for Riggs, Murtaugh and Cole to tangle with. You may not recognize the name, but you certainly know the face. He also played a great villain in The Mark Of Zorro.

I remember seeing Lethal Weapon 3 in the theater like it was yesterday. I saw it as part of a double header which also included Jurassic Park. It's the last time I saw a double feature in the theater since then. I don't even think they do that anymore. Certainly not around here and certainly not with high quality movies like these two. Anyway, this is definitely a Buy to complete the first three films. The poster says it all...'The Magic is Back'.
