Lethal Weapon was the first big stateside release for Mel Gibson. After living in Australia for many moons, he returns back to his homeland with this surprise hit.

Mel Gibson and Danny Murtaugh feed well off this original of the Lethal Weapon series. Their contrasting styles really lead to many funny lines and crazy scenes.

It is interesting how this dynamic duo escape their predicament and catch the bad guys in the end. Gary Busey is very believable as the lead drug dealer. Its a winner in my book.
