    Lethal Weapon 3 is all about chases and comedy schtick, and in this case the sum of the parts really adds up to more than the whole.
  3. Lethal Weapon 3 isn't that much worse than the two earlier films.
  4. It's better than 2, but not nearly as good as 1. On the slippery slope of sequel-land, that's an okay average. [15 May 1992]

    They once again trot out the same cynical, numbing formula: bullets, bonding and bravado tempered with self-congratulatory humor.
  6. The latest, and, one fears, not the last episode in the kiss-kiss-bang-bang saga of L.A. police Detectives Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) and Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) is even more of a comic strip than its immediate predecessor. [15 May 1992]
  7. It's all played for giggles, this grim anti-humanism. [21 May 1992]

It's around a 7, fun and enjoyable buddy flick from one of the most memorable buddy-flick franchises. Action, laughs, and all around good times. What kind of movie did people expect? Expand

It's not a terrible movie; there are some decent laughs to be had and some passable action but nothing to match the highs of the first two films. Ultimately, Lethal Weapon 3 is a bit disappointing.
