Subject: rigs and Murtaugh back in business. At this time they are investigating a case involving the ambassadors of South Africa, will meet with a haunting Leo Getsem and for the Rigs it would become too personal.

The second part of "Deadly weapon" left a bit ambiguous. When you are you like watching her same easily, and the first, but same warm feelings she is. Richard Donner in the second part added a bit of gloom. For the hero of Mel Gibson, this part of the franchise is the darkest. Here he takes revenge as for my wife, so and new girlfriend. And him in these moments are very sympathetic. At Murtaugh Danny Glover not changed. He still the same complain the life of a police officer. Except that, on the Rigs was less yelling. Character Joe Pesci was very comical and fits into the picture. Action has increased, but he not much is stored as in the first part. The humor was much better. It became more memorable jokes, and points.

Verdict: a very good continuation of the original, which brings a lot.

Good partners are determined by the number of scrapes, in they get together. If they prove they on the teeth, it for such a professional police there are always especially dangerous job that times check out their endurance. Petty criminals are already have long realized that not with them should contact, but a large fish in the ocean of criminals very much. And even if a new operation at first it may seem virtually impossible, they will be able to teach those who are all goes owner, good manners. After all, these guys are ready for all because you are the best cops in your Police Department.

Since Los Angeles — the city is noisy and they love to crank out their dirty work different Mafiosi for the police is always a lot of work. Director Richard Donner never not forget now, after two years, it returns the screen of two opposing, but very friendly cops, is able to reveal any complicated case and throw in the grille is self-confident criminals. One of the are still in own and second trying to hold back, and together they — the best companions, ready for each friend to die for.

" — thanks son, I thought you die.

- I didn't die on your toilet and will not die on your hands."


So, the main characters of Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh is back in business. They already do not the first day working together, so a little accustomed to the eccentricities of his partner. With the first seconds of the film it becomes clear that Martin were all the same abnormal policeman who never get bored of it work. He has finally survived the death of his beloved wife and ready to open his heart to another, but killer first all running another freedom it to forgive is not going to. Partner Roger, have not once victim excessive enthusiasm to Martin, all even with him to risk his life. On the first plan for it is still a family favorite because it is trying by all means to protect your family from the consequences of their dangerous work. Taking over a new job, they are not suspected than face, but when a choice is made, the path of retreat are closed (and not need the emergency exit). These two even bare hands can catch those whom the law prohibits arrest. Of course, no one better than Mel Gibson and Danny Glover not able to fulfill these roles. They show again his acting skill, unmatched playing a serious, opposite a very funny episode. Them the Duo looks even more harmonious, because now they really have become true friends and brothers at arms who have not order and on its own initiative, experiencing each friend.

In the movie also appears a talented actor, Joe foot. He brought brazen cunning fraudster who stole not those of gangsters and now, as a valuable witness charged two partners. Its character makes the life of the main characters even more intense, not allowing them not a second of rest. But the Riggs and Murtaugh also not miss — everywhere drag with a frightened criminal.

The second part of the adventures of the coolest cops Richard Donner made more dramatic, helped to open up the main characters, in particular, Riggs, and added more of the elements of a good Thriller (Yes, to shoot there are often). Also, despite some of the seriousness of events, the good guys always find a time that would joke over each friend. Their black humor remains on a high level, showing that even in the face of the old woman-death, you can manage successfully to make a joke.

" — do Not try to do this at home, kids."

Yes, such risk is better left to experienced professionals who will induce order in the city. They second time are a lot of tests, but do not give up and go ahead together to win.

"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.
