    Lethal Weapon 2 is that rarity - a sequel with most of the same qualities as the original. I walked into the movie with a certain dread. But this is a film with the same off-center invention and wild energy as the original.

    But no, Lethal Weapon 2 is no artless, autopiloted waste of precious movie-theater air conditioning. It's fun stuff -- crackling, playfully escapist summer fare that doesn't make you feel taken advantage of later.

It's tighter, funnier and more memorable, which is impressive given that the original was already well paced, funny and full of memorable moments. Take a trip back to the 80's and watch these two excellent action flicks but skip the later two sequels/money grabs. Full Review »
