Box office superstar and Academy Award-winner Mel Gibson (“Maverick,” “Braveheart”) and Danny Glover (“The Color Purple,” “Grand Canyon”) team up as L.A. cops in the top-grossing action movie that spawned three sequels. Directed by Richard Donner (“Superman,” “Maverick”), Gibson is a volatile, unregistered risk-taker, known as a “lethal weapon” by his colleagues. Glover is the conservative detective with a solid reputation. Forced to form an uneasy alliance, they begin to unravel the mystery of an apparent suicide that turns out to be murder — and more.
The New York Times calls this “a high-voltage thriller which packs an undeniable wallop;” Gene Shalit calls it “riveting!…a pair of heroes I hope we’ll be seeing again;” and Joel Siegel says it’s “a detective thriller that just won’t quit…this one is so good it will be the standard for action films all year long!” Co-starring Academy Award-nominee Gary Busey (“The Firm,” “Under Siege”).
