    There are elements in the movie that make it worth seeing, and that set it aside from the routine movies in this genre.

    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.

    Sure-handed actionmeister Donner keeps the pacing breathless, and gives his actors plenty of room to do their thing. [15 May 1992]

    They once again trot out the same cynical, numbing formula: bullets, bonding and bravado tempered with self-congratulatory humor.
  6. More of the same, though a lot coarser than its immediate predecessor, and the characters and situations have now calcified to the point where they're simply sitcom staples.
  7. It's all played for giggles, this grim anti-humanism. [21 May 1992]

    Look, this movie is not a 10, but it's certainly better than the critic or user reviews would have you believe. My 10 rating is simply to offset some of that BS. 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

    Lethal Weapon 3 is easily the weakest in the franchise. 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. Expand
