"We are bad guys. You — black, I — crazy" — Martin Riggs.
A couple of legendary cops Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) and Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) returns to the screen to ignite in the sequel to the classic Thriller "Lethal weapon". Director Richard Donner keeps his level, adding in each component of the film industry for the success of his paintings.
Taking the old team who worked on the first part in the face of screenwriter Shane black, operator Stephen Goldblatt, Eric Clapton with his iconic theme music and the same fine actors, Richard Donner shoots great and no less classic than the first part, the sequel, increasing the scale of the picture. Here and more actions (action) on screen, and more humor, plus a new charismatic character Joe Hiking, well into the team (which is to say more, but below).
The relationship of the two main characters be continued. They become good friends.
Martin Riggs — of those guy who opens beer with his teeth, he is same impulsive and reckless COP. In the second part, we learn more about his last how killed his wife.
"You are lucky, I spent the whole day with him" — Roger Murtaugh.
Roger Murtaugh — considering the imminent resignation from since met my partner, he still can't live without those adventures, they always manage to get with the Riggs. And although it used to calm and measured life, but still with your favorite phrase "I'm too old for all this" hell on the screen worse than his partner.
This time guys are confronted with the carriage of prohibited gold coins under the cover of a diplomatic mission. The investigation of this case will be dangerous not only for themselves friends of teammates, but also put into threats and closest to them. To the same guys forced to babysit witness this case, annoying and eccentric character on behalf name is Leo gets (played by the brilliant Joe foot).
Leo Getz — a little bit crazy and nervous, he could not think nor seconds, but it is it "OK, OK, OK, OK..." or various monologues in one or other topic is not can not smile and sympathy for the character Joe Hiking, which is simply impossible not to love. And like relations with characters of Gibson and Glover in opening to fold (a La their own familiarity with the first part), but then also grow into a huge friendship.
"I'll take two, and are you one ... no, better, you two and I" — Roger Murtaugh.
The plot in great look it in the same breath. But still it the important when on the foreground there are funny moments and incidents in the family or Murtaugh constant pranks, jokes and laughs Riggs over Murtaugh — this, in my opinion, the main feature of the film. Fantastic in his genius and at the same time the stupidity of the scene with the booby-trapped toilet, a phrase of the hero of Mel Gibson's "Heroes never die the toilet" just kills on the spot.
But remembered the film, of course, not just that. In addition to killing a couple of cops, the picture looks for the expense of well-choreographed scenes of car chases, gunfights, melee fights, and also breathtaking stunts. Blow up the house, beating the machine in the best traditions of the genre. One of the most beautiful scenes — it is the collapse of the house on stilts, a great chase in the beginning of the film, well, and the flight of the machine of the hanging on the crane container — all kind of know-how for the late 80s. in One word everything looks it's very impressive.
"I do not died you the toilet, not die you hands" — Martin Riggs.
Movie heroes of our time now these other films though with much bigger scope, but most of the underparts are forgotten in a year the other. But master one of the best Directors in Hollywood, Richard Donner and each new film brings to one or another genre something new. Whether "the omen" (1976), "Superman" (1980) or"Lethal weapon 2".
Well in conclusion, it is worth noting. It is generally believed that the sequel is always worse than the original (in our case also classics of Hollywood). However, "Lethal weapon 2" though is a sequel to a classic Thriller, but no way inferior to the original, and in some components even surpasses it.
