Lethal Weapon Directed by Richard Donner

Critics reviews

The screenplay is taut, sad, conscious and careful of its portrayals of all its characters, and, juvenile though it undoubtedly is, takes seriously its setting in a Los Angeles on the brink of a racial uprising. Richard Donner’s direction seems blissfully unaware of all of that, blandly delivering the appropriate shocks and laughs at the appropriate intervals and in general just staying out of the way of its actors.
