Los Angeles police sergeant Roger Murtaugh and his partner, Sergeant Martin Riggs, are working on yet another drug-related case. Soon after finding one million dollars worth of South African Krugerrands in a crashed red BMW after a chase, Riggs and Murtaugh are assigned to keep an eye on Leo Getz, who is scheduled to testify in a case. There are people who don't want Leo to testify: a group of drug smugglers led by Arjen Rudd, the minister of diplomatic affairs for the South African consulate. Rudd turns out to be the man that Riggs and Murtaugh are after in the drug case they were working on before Leo was placed in their protective custody, which doesn't look very protective when Leo is kidnapped by Rudd's right hand man Pieter Vorstedt. Riggs ends up falling for Rudd's secretary Rika Van Den Haas, who doesn't like Rudd. In a confrontation with Vorstedt, Riggs is told the true circumstances behind the death of his wife Vicky, who died in a car crash in 1984: the car crash was caused by Vorstedt, who was supposed to have killed Riggs. Minutes after Vorstedt tries to kill Riggs, Riggs finds Rika dead, and this sends Riggs over the edge.
South African smugglers find themselves being hounded and harassed by Riggs and Murtaugh, two mismatched Los Angeles police officers. However, the South Africans are protected by diplomatic immunity and so the duo are assigned to witness protection duty in an attempt by their captain to keep his job. It is only when this witness reveals to them that he has already dealt with the smugglers that the trouble really starts...
The first Lethal Weapon is not only one of the best cop-buddy movies but it is also by far one of Mel Gibson's best movies. And this second instalment is still a fun ride!
The acting is nothing short of excellent. Especially Mel Gibson portrays the deeply disturbed Martin Riggs with great finesse and his ability to create nuanced characters shines through in this movie. You genuinely feel with him and feel the incredible weight of his wife's death on him. Danny Glover is also great in his role as the aging family father.
The on-screen chemistry between the two actors is excellent and the relationship between Riggs and Murtaugh has been weighed more heavily than in the following movies that were to come.
The action in the movie is excellent for an 80s movie.
All in all, a movie where basically everything works and is perhaps underrated by the voters of IMDb. Richard Donner directs again, and Mel Gibson and Danny Glover return as LAPD partners, their relationship smoother now that Gibson's character has recovered from his maddening grief over his wife's death. But the reckless Mel and cautious Danny equation, good for a million laughs, settles into place in this story involving a South African smuggler and a new girlfriend (Patsy Kensit) for Gibson. The movie is hardly comfy, though. The last act gets nasty, and a climactic fight between Gibson (who gets the worst of it) and some high-kicking villain is ugly. The chemistry between its leads, make this a playful, entertaining sequel.Sequel Includes a smashed car full of Krugerrands, a hillside house blown off its stilts and a bomb set under a toilet, the point of Lethal Weapon 2 is that Mel Gibson and Danny Glover get to race around in all that chaos, acting crazy.If you liked Lethal Weapon, you'll like Lethal Weapon 2; it's almost as simple as that."Worse than the first, but better than the rest. it's nice to have a big-audience action movie attacking apartheid and the slaughter of sea mammals, instead of acting as an enlistment poster for the Army Air Corps, local vigilante groups or the reopening of the Vietnam War, the sentiments don't really transcend the car crashes.Pesci's terrific comic performance really gooses the proceedings, but the film also works because of its exciting action content, the presence of Patsy Kensit as Riggs' love interest, and the series-best interplay between the two lead characters. Despite the film's anti-South African stance, it was passed uncut by the South African censors and became a major financial success in that country. .The films' writer, Shane Black, walked away from this sequel after he decided to kill off the character of Martin Riggs. Warner Brothers disagreed with that decision, and he left the project.The body count is 33, the highest of the 'Lethal Weapon' series. During production, Richard Donner was shocked when Mel Gibson confided that he was drinking five pints of beer for breakfast. Despite his alcohol problems, Gibson was known for his professionalism and punctuality. In the original script, the South Africans were even more vicious. At one point, they even torture Riggs in much the same manner as Mr. Joshua in the original. Its a Strong and funny sequel but if went with original ending would be even more classic.Still its one of the finest examples of the genre its a Kick ass sequel by concentrating on the often frustrating, funny relationship between the three men, the film gains in humour but loses some of the momentum and panache which distinguished the original.Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, and Richard Donner have all stated that this is their favourite film of the Lethal Weapon series. Before it skids out of control in the final sequence, the film is so careful to preserve its successful comic-action formula that it follows the most basic law of sequels. If you liked ''Lethal Weapon,'' you'll like Lethal Weapon 2; it's almost as simple as that. After engaging in a high speed chase with South African smugglers and recovering a trunk full of krugerrands, Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) and Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) are assigned to the less dangerous job of protecting federal witness Leo Getz (Joe Pesci). Soon, however, they learn that Getz is involved in the same smuggling ring, laundering money made by South African diplomats hiding under their diplomatic immunity status. Lethal Weapon 2 is the second movie in the Lethal Weapon series, preceded by Lethal Weapon (1987) (1987) and followed by Lethal Weapon 3 (1992) (1992) and Lethal Weapon 4 (1998) (1998). It is based on a story and screenplay by American screenwriters Shane Black (who created the characters in the first movie), Warren Murphy, and Jeffrey Boam. Krugerrands are a South African monetary unit made mostly of solid gold (with a little copper thrown in). The chief monetary unit of South Africa is called the "rand". "Kruger" comes from the face depicted on the coin of Paul Kruger, president of the South African Republic from 1883 to 1900. They aren't anymore. However, during the 1970s and '80s, they were outlawed because of South Africa's position on apartheid. Apartheid is a system of racial segregation in South Africa that limited the rights of black South Africans and kept them "apart" from white South Africans. Apartheid existed in South Africa for decades until it was abolished 1994. In southern Africa, "kaffir" is a ethnic slur referring to a black person. No. The scene requires a serious amount of suspension of disbelief but it really makes for a fun action sequence. Riggs is driving a large, heavy-duty GMC Sierra (a 1989) that likely has a V8 engine and also has a heavy duty rear suspension setup— he uses it to tow the trailer he lives in. However, Riggs wraps the chain he uses to pull out the stilt near the base of the stilt where it's bolted to the concrete post. The bolts, plus the weight of the house on the stilt would make it impossible to yank out with Riggs' truck. In reality, depending on where Riggs had secured the chain to his truck—it looks like it's been attached to the rear axle assembly—the force would have either bent the axle severely or ripped it loose from the undercarriage. It's possible he could have bent the stilt enough if he'd attached the chain about halfway along the length of the support but that would be highly unlikely too, i.e., it would cause some damage to the stilt itself but it's unlikely the whole house would come down. Yes and no. The house that's destroyed in the movie was a replica built on a backlot at Warner Studios. The real house was used as a shooting location but it's still standing at 7436 Mulholland Drive in Beverly Hills. It was designed by a man named John Lautner, who was a famous architect. Trapped in the shipping container loaded with South African drug lord Arjen Rudd's (Joss Ackland) Mercedes and shrink-wrapped packages containing hundreds of million of dollars of American money, Riggs and Murtaugh wait until the container is hanging over the Alba Varden. The container doors suddenly burst open and the Mercedes comes flying, exploding into a fireball and followed by thousands of bills, which scatter irretrievably on the water. Riggs and Murtaugh then rappel from the container into the ship's cargo hold. A fight breaks out during which Riggs and Murtaugh manage to take out several of Rudd's henchmen. However, Rudd's hired assassin, Pieter Vorstedt (Derrick O'Connor) succeeds in tossing a knife into Riggs' right hamstring, disabling him. Riggs manages to get up on his feet, pulls out the knife, and uses it to stab Vorstedt several times in the gut. When Vorstedt also gets up and pulls a gun on Riggs, Riggs finishes him off by pressing the loading button that releases the overhanging container pod. It falls on Vorstedt, crushing him. When Murtaugh calls out to Riggs to see if he's okay, Rudd open fires on Riggs, pumping several bullets into him. Murtaught turns on Rudd, who is flashing his dipolatic immuity card, but shoots him anyway. "It's just been revoked," he yells out. Murtaugh rushes to his severely-wounded partner and cradles Riggs' seemingly lifeless head in his arms. "You're not dead," Murtaugh entones over and over, "not until I tell you." Riggs replies by asking Murtaugh to reach into his pocket and get his cigarettes. Once Murtaugh has the pack, Riggs tells him to throw them away, saying, "Those things will kill ya!" Riggs then asks whether they've managed to get all the bad guys, and Murtaugh replies, "They've all been de-kaffir-nated." Sharing a laugh together, Riggs and Murtaugh await the arriving police, whose sirens can be heard in the distance. a5c7b9f00b
