It’s been 30 years since we were introduced to one of the best dynamic duos in film history. When veteran policeman Roger Murtagh (Danny Glover) is partnered with younger, suicidal officer Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson), it seems a match made in hell. Together they uncover a huge drug-smuggling operation, but it can only be taken down if they learn to work together.

Lethal Weapon still holds its own among its contemporaries. Redefining 80s action flicks while spawning three sequels and a TV series, Lethal Weapon ranks as an essential watch for action buffs who don’t mind a bit of cheese.

+ Jokes never miss and clever dialogue

+ The chemistry between Murtagh and Gibson stands above other buddy cop films

+ Fast paced and action packed

Super cheesy
