Is there any moment Donner won't punctuate w/ a sax? Some people may still enjoy the manic (anxious/desperate?) banter, bad puns & Pesci's "ok, ok" schtick, but even as a huge fan of part 2, when I saw this at 23, I felt it was major letdown. From the 1st scene the constant attempts at humor remove the sense that anything's at stake & neither the plot nor the action scenes are interesting/exciting enough to excuse that. Russo's a welcome addition if only bc she slightly changes the usual dynamic

Rene Russo is no Patsy Kensit, both in that she isn't as attractive and that her career didn't sputter out afterwards. I like Rene and I'm glad she's still around, but I miss Patsy. At least Lethal Weapon 2 Patsy. Also there's action in this.

Oh she likes Three Stooges and is in to martial arts, she's perfect for Riggs! Once the suicidal mulleted fury raged sex god settles down with his female doppelganger, this once proud franchise begins to stink of shit.

Lethal Weapon 3 doesn't compare to the previous two movies. Joe Pesci's character is already annoying in the second movie but it is thrown into overdrive in this one. The combo of Riggs and Murtaugh are still fun but something is lost in this movie. The whole story of Murtaugh leaving the force should have been a great backdrop for all of their normal hijinx but it didn't cause much tension in the end, which it should have. I guess lightning doesn't strike three times in the same place.

A very notable step down; the first one that just feels like "another Lethal Weapon movie." Chemistry between the leads remains good and there's a couple kinda neat action bits, but that's about all of its merits. Mostly fairly lazy storytelling that doesn't really rise above most episodes of most cop TV shows. And Leo Getz is reeeeaaaally annoying.

Lethal Weapon 3 is a return to form for the series. It made the smart decision to stop stealing attention away from its two leads, and as a result became funnier and more focused. It's not quite the nonstop action ride of the earlier chapters, but that is fine when (1) the filmmakers are running out of inventive action scenes and (2) we're not necessarily here for the action anyway. There's some repetition, but for the most part this is a pretty successful buddy-cop film and I recommend it.

Although Glover and Gibson are both at the high points of the franchise so far here, their characters get very little development and Pesci is still very annoying (only here). Everything else is about the same with a less than mediocre story with awful villains. Glover and Gibson keep it alive.

The antagonist rings more of an 80's-used-car-salesman than a proper villain, utterly failing to capture any of the permeating 'badguy, badass' feeling of the other films' foes.

Third time's the charm. "Lethal Weapon 3" eschews the dark overtones of its predecessors for an overall lighter approach. It might be teeming with campy moments but it is hands-down not just the funniest but, crucially, the most exciting of the bunch, from the memorable action scenes to the engaging plot. "Lethal Weapon 3" is exactly the buddy cop action comedy you imagine this franchise to be all about - with an extra kick in the nuts by the duo's newly-arrived female counterpart.

The film isn't as bad as I remembered but there is way too much unfunny comedy going on. This is much more of an action comedy than the previous installments. The action is well done if way over the top and there is a distinct lack of actual police work and procedure.

Lethal Weapon 3 is a slight step down for the series but is still a good all round action film. The lower certification sadly tones things down a little too much for my liking. Gibson and Glover are both great once again and Pesci is just as funny as last time round. I wasn't too fussed about Russo's involvement and the villain is completely forgettable. However the humour carries the film well and the set pieces are thoroughly enjoyable. Overall Lethal Weapon 3 is a decent 90's action film.

This is the worst of all four Lethal Weapon films. The action is still good, but the rest of the movie feels lazy. The villain was cast well, but the character was so flat that you just don't care when he's taken care of.

Pretty massive drop it quality for the series. It starts well enough and does have a few laughs. Unfortunately the sequence of events are scattershot, contrived and annoying. The end "battle" makes no sense if you analyze it and the main baddie is awful. The young character deaths are a pathetic excuse for character motivation. Seeing Glover mope and endure a funeral of his victim is just bad viewing. Rene Russo actually drags the film down too, the romance doesn't work.

A step up from Lethal Weapon 2. The story doesn't vary that much from what we've seen before, but at least it's entertaining. Murtaugh and Riggs still have a tendency to randomly bumble into dangerous situations that just so happen to advance the plot, and some other Lethal Weapon plot devices remain. There's also still some unnecessary melodrama. Pesci is at least used to better effect this time around, and Rene Russo is a good addition to the cast.

So Gibson and glover are enough to carry this, and donner can still direct action -- the chase through the subway that spills out onto the streets is one of my favorite setpieces of the series -- but like many series that collect characters it gets bogged down in making sure everyone has a moment (and im looking at you leo getz to please leave the movie this time). For the first time in the series the villain is utterly forgettable and the film basically seems unconcerned with his plot

There is no question that the series lost a spark with this one. Perhaps due to the strange mixing on tones. From Murtaugh's guilt driven arc to Riggs' comedy driven scenes with Rene Russo. The best aspects are the carry-overs from the first two, being the two leads, Joe Pesci, and the awesome action sequences.

Gibson and Glover's patter is perhaps too smooth at this point. Pesci's Leo has taken a funny turn, but he's no more than a minimally necessary tension release. Wilson is the pettiest villain in the series, no more than a dirty cop with a quip to act as eulogy for every incompetent thug. Still, unexpected dramatic turns, a fresh new series regular, a brilliant scene of impromptu strip poker and a sensational wrong-way chase down an expressway between two armored trucks set the film apart.
