On the recommendations of Kinopoisk decided to watch this film because I love old American fighters. However, most likely, I already watched it once a child.

Liked it very much. The first half of the film — a quite good police drama with elements of Comedy. That surprising — the filmmakers try to give us understand that for the heroes they are present. Here, of course, we should also mention Mel Gibson, brilliantly playing "frostbite" COP Riggs, with a mad and desperate look.

The second half of the film — a typical action movie, and is it with mixed feelings. With the one hand, this old Thriller, so there are no foolishness like hanging out in the air bullets and Bouncing on ten meters karate — Matrix is still not soon engulf the minds of Directors of stunt Directors. In General, pretty realistic, if not pay attention to the amazing endurance of the main character — moreover, the next day after a pretty serious injury (shot in the stomach through the armor with the subsequent flight through the glass Windows) it is like no what is not used is "disassembly", so still, once in the captured the bandits, having gone through torture, it runs quite quickly, fights and even a very excellent marksman. However, action such action, of such Hollywood Hollywood — for love.

Summary: 50% excellent police drama/Comedy with wildly charismatic characters, 50% — a pretty decent action movie without claims that would any was. In averages out to "okay."

A lot of movies about the police/ex-military/real men stamp studios, but to highlight I want this because it doesn't remarkable average action reveals to us the world through the eyes of characters who are completely absorbed in their work.

Charms this film is its atmosphere, the what characters to still not understand yourself to end, of Martin Riggs too just not write to me, I guess Mel Gibson long could get rid of depression, which he tried to give the whole film, and all time went on the police wore the mask of a psycho — him was easier. Danny Glover is the personification of calmness in tough situations, I think in each we have some Riggs and a little bit Murtaugh...

And probably the most important part: this movie dies not hurt, because the film is filed with a sense of humor certainly is the achievement Shane black took a look at it movies (Last action hero, kiss Kiss Bang Bang) you can see the style it. saves almost all of his works, the humor is in parallel with the action, Oh and the action should take place in Christmas eve!

Also I want to say that this story has no time frame is the film can be viewed to people of all generations.

This "a Christmas story about the cops" will remain in the hearts of the spectators in a very long time.

I believe that in the 80 years two best Thriller, which dozens of years later remain the benchmark of the genre. This "die hard" and"Lethal weapon". "Lethal weapon" — this is a film of my childhood! Thanks to this film, action is my favorite genre in cinema. A huge thank you to Shane black, the founder of the genre fighters! Of the below its the pen also came out such scenarios as "the Last boy scout", "Last action hero", "the Last kiss at night", "kiss Kiss Bang Bang" and are the ultimate subjects of fighters that you created in today.

Richard Donner and Shane black subtly show us the debt of friendship, duty and family. The Murtaugh family with kindness and sincerity take my family alone Riggs, who lost not so long ago, your love, and with that the meaning of his life. Not caught him in this period of life a man like Murtaugh, then let it is a bullet in the forehead and even my favorite work of his not resist. Movie family Christmas, which gives it a spark of magic, not leave us neither a second. The humor of both characters and flows with the screen sometimes, falling from the sofa with laughter!!

Stephen Goldblatt gives us very high quality and colorful picture that gives a Christmas atmosphere. And music Michael Kamina so enters a heart that I want to soar in the sky and observe the reversal of the plot with height of bird's flight! Violin and brass his orchestra playing in all the famous action movies: in the rest of the series "Lethal weapon", "die hard", "Last boy scout" and"Last action Hero".

The film is not let go for a second, even if you don't look for the first time, because the game Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are so realistic, that lose the line between film and reality! Who didn't see that means not loves militants, and who loves — the quick in store for drive! I sure, no one sorry!
