      Yuval D really fun, But not as good as the first and second Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Pedro G Buena película, mi favorita de la saga. Esta tercera entrega nos presenta otra vez una historia del dúo dinámico de Riggs y Murtaugh, pero esta vez no tan buena como las anteriores. A pesar de no tener una historia tan buena como las anteriores la considero que es mucho mas entretenida y tiene escenas de acción que si bien siguen siendo exageradas están muy bien logradas y son brillantes. También la historia tiene varias conveniencias y momentos sin sentido que restan un poco a la película, pero ya es algo común en esta franquicia y empieza a ser costumbre. El humor se sigue manteniendo y cumple, no es la gran cosa pero si tiene algunas escenas graciosas. Por otro lado, las actuaciones son excelentes, principalmente las de Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Rene Russo y Joe Pesci. En conclusión, una buena película que si bien no es la gran cosa y no es la mejor de la saga, sigue siendo mi favorita por lo entretenida que es su historia, a pesar de no tener tanta calidad como las anteriores. La recomiendo. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/29/24 Full Review Matthew D Richard Donner's direction is fine as is the acting, however the writing is very tired. There's no new story, no friendship dynamic, and less action sequences than the first two. The villain is not memorable and just constantly casually walks into the LAPD police headquarters like it's nothing. It wants to have a modern message about gang violence and the supply of guns to the streets, but it's all so awkward and contrived. Murtaugh just screams RIGGS! for most of Danny Glover's lines, despite remaining the heart of the series. Mel Gibson talks like he's on cocaine the entire time. It's a mess. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/24 Full Review StephenPaul C The greatest version is the Unrated Director's Cut with bonus footage never seen before!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/24/23 Full Review Alain M Lethal Weapon 3 is a solid entry in the popular action-comedy franchise, although it may not quite reach the heights of its predecessors. While the formula may be starting to wear off a bit, the addition of Renee Russo as a love interest for Mel Gibson's character brings some much-needed energy and excitement to the film. As always, the chemistry between Gibson and Danny Glover is a highlight of the movie, and their banter and action sequences are as entertaining as ever. However, the plot itself may feel a bit familiar to fans of the series, and some of the action scenes may not be as innovative or thrilling as they were in earlier installments. Despite these minor flaws, Lethal Weapon 3 is still a fun and entertaining movie that delivers on the series' signature blend of humor and action. And with the addition of Russo's character, the franchise is given a fresh injection of life that keeps things interesting and engaging. Overall, while it may not be as awesome as some of the earlier films, Lethal Weapon 3 is still a solid and enjoyable entry in the series. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/23/23 Full Review Jackson87 Lethal Weapon 3 is a movie that I watched recently and I have to say, I was not very impressed. The plot was lackluster and the acting was mediocre at best. The chemistry between the two main characters, played by Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, was not as strong as in the previous installments of the franchise. The storyline felt forced and lacked any real suspense or excitement. The action scenes were lacking and not very well choreographed, leaving me feeling underwhelmed and disinterested. The script was not particularly witty or memorable, and the attempts at humor fell flat. Overall, Lethal Weapon 3 is a disappointing addition to the series. It lacks the charm and excitement of the previous films and fails to deliver a compelling storyline or engaging characters. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader A celebration of Los Angeles police brutality and large-scale explosions... May 26, 2022 Full Review Stephanie Rosenfeld Bitch Media It's an action movie - we want explosions, not character development. And explosions and car chases are what we get. Dec 17, 2020 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: C+ Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The humor and verve outdo the sappier moments, allowing it to be a satisfactory (but not superior) addition to the popular action/adventure series. Rated: 6/10 Sep 14, 2020 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...erratic yet entertaining sequel... Rated: 3/4 Feb 11, 2020 Full Review Vanessa Letts The Spectator The idea of going round casually shooting the people who make life boring appeals to me. For this reason alone I get great satisfaction out of the Lethal Weapon formula. Jul 25, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
