Alright folks, it’s time to dust off your flannel, feather your mullet and bust out the VCR again because it’s time for another Simplistic Reviews Movie Commentary. We return to 1989 with another classic; “Lethal Weapon 2.” The sequel to another classic,”Lethal Weapon,” “Weapon 2” pretty much ups the ante over it’s predecessor and exceeds and it some ways. This time around Riggs and Murtaugh are on the trail of a group of South Africans who are into some shady dealings, including a guy who might be David Warner.
Whereas “Weapon 1” was a pretty dark film, “Weapon 2” is a the perfect balance of humor, bombastic action, and gritty cop drama. With that said, sit back, strap yourself in (if you’re into that type of thing) and get ready to yuck it up with three guys who make Jones, Mahoney, and Hooks look like legit cops with “Lethal Weapon 2.”
