Lethal Weapon (1987)

This story opens with the suicide of a young woman.

After learning a bit about them, we see suicidal Detective Martin Riggs partnered up with the more experienced (and close to retirement) family-man Detective Roger Murtaugh to investigate the young woman’s death. Act I ends with the end of their first day together.

Act II ups the ante as a witness is exploded, the young woman’s father is killed at her funeral, Riggs is shot, and Murtaugh’s daughter is abducted.


Murtaugh heads to Dry Lake to meet Rianne’s captors. Riggs stages just out of sight to provide long-range assistance.

Where is the rest of the LAPD?

Riggs and Murtaugh are a couple of rogue wolves. They are fully capable of taking on an elite group of military-turned-drug-cartel members.

Wouldn’t Joshua see the Special Forces tattoo on Riggs’ arm and realize it would take a lot more than electrocution to get him to talk?

Yeah, you would think that, wouldn’t you?

All this torturing is happening in the back of the Shadow Company’s club?

Well, yeah. Were they supposed to question/torture Riggs and Murtaugh in the desert rather than drive three hostages back into the city in a bullet-riddled car to be potentially spotted by hundreds of witnesses?

Who’s been playing that soothing guitar this whole movie?

Bewn-bewn bewn bewnnn, buhm buhm-buhm. That’d be Eric Clapton.
