    Lethal Weapon 3 features a lot of chases, explosions and impressive set pieces. The story is based on the characters Riggs and Murtaugh (Mel Gibson and Danny Glover) who partner together. They have a long history of friendship and working together in the police force as fans will know from past Lethal Weapon films. Lethal Weapon 3 features Roger Murtaugh, eight days from his retirement. Riggs is always the joker making viewers as well as his work mates laugh. However his foolish behavior is often responsible for getting the pair into trouble. Roger Murtaugh fears his retirement could be at risk due to his partner's crazy behavior. A bomb device had been spotted on Parking Level 1 of the evacuated International Control Systems Inc. (ICSI) building. The first scene of the movie was actually the former City Hall building of Orlando, Florida.

    Riggs being the kind of person that enjoys taking risks decides to take matters into his own hands. Instead of waiting for the bomb squad to get there he persuades Murtaugh to check out the bomb site and try to deactivate the bomb with him. Unfortunately things go wrong and the following day the two partners are demoted to uniformed cop patrol officers.

    Lethal Weapon 3 has no Academy Award Oscar nominations. It had a production budget of $35 million, and box-office gross receipts of $145 million (domestic) and $322 million (worldwide). Lethal Weapon 3 received poor reviews due to its strong use of LA street violence during a time that LA riots were occurring frequently.

    Actors featured in Lethal Weapon 3 include; Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Joe Pesci, Rene Russo, Stuart Wilson, Steve Kahan, Darlene Love and Jack Mcgee. The director of Lethal Weapon 3 was Richard Donner and it was released in 1992 as an action movie, crime and thriller. Mel Gibson is a box office star and Oscar winner who also starred in Braveheart and Maverick. Danny Glover starred in The Color Purple. Joe Pesci is an Oscar winner who starred in GoodFellas and My Cousin Vinny. Rene Russo was in "Get Shorty" and "In the Line of Fire".

    Lethal Weapon 3 was released in 1992. It was a time when many other crime films were also brought out. For this reason this time period is known as the "buddy cop" subgenre of films. Plots include two men who are unalike in character and have conflicting personalities, but have to work together in order to fight crime and defeat criminals.

    Lethal Weapon has managed to produce a high level of action and entertainment throughout all four movies. Lethal Weapon 3 includes more fresh blood and a larger amount of humour compared to the other films in the series. The film begins with the heroes introducing themselves in a humorous and explosive fashion. Therefore the film starts off with a fast pace and carries on producing lots of surprises and laughs throughout. Riggs is one of a kind until Lorna Cole (Rene Russo), is introduced. Lorna Cole is an Internal Affairs investigator who has similar gags and hand to hand combat abilities as Riggs has. After bashing a few heads, a scene that is extremely funny includes them comparing scars, stabs and gunshot wounds. Both characters bring the film to life and add a large amount of comedy that will make the viewer laugh out loud.

    With Lethal Weapon 3 the emphasis is not on plot, but concentrates on character building, chemistry between characters and strong amounts of action. The plot is still there it is just not a central focus of the film. There is a good story that isn't over complicated. Actors give extremely believable performances that are a pleasure to watch. Rene Russo's performance is particular spectacular considering the complex character that she plays. It is not easy playing a new kid, competing for the tough guy jobs as well as the rest of the team. Overall Lethal Weapon 3 combines adrenaline pumping action with comedy and entertainment that is suitable for all fans of the Lethal Weapon series.
