Murtaugh is six days away from retirement and there's been a theft of weapons by Jack Travis, a vicious ex-cop, from a Los Angeles police depot. Within days drug dealers will be armed with illegal weapons containing armour piecing bullets which will render the police's bullet proof vests useless.

During the investigations Riggs finally meets his match in the form of Lorna Cole, a beautiful but hard-hitting policewoman, from internal affairs who is being more than economical with the truth. When the pair uncover the extent of the problem on the streets they join forces with Lorna in an attempt to expose the crooked ex-cop and his arm dealings. However, Riggs soon falls for Lorna as he discovers that they have more things in common than he could have ever imagined.

The picture is a definite improvement on the previous films, with a bright picture with no visible signs of artifacting and a reasonably high bit-rate is throughout. However, picture imperfections can easily been seen during the initial film titles and the picture can be grainy at times.

Again, the sound is an improvement on the previous lethal weapon films, with the piercing saxophone incidental music being quite impressive. There's even the welcome use of LFE's which are used to great effect in the initial scenes of the exploding building. There's also plenty of action in the rear channels, again mainly used by incidental music, and the dialogue is anchored in the centre without any bleeding to the other channels.

Richard Donner has attempted to continue with the mix of action, of which the first 15 minutes is none stop, and comedy which made Lethal Weapon 2 such a success. However, this film over does the comedy element to the point of being too obvious, and a poor script doesn't help matters. This film is definitely a money making exercise, and although it probably made a packet at the cinema, it came no where near the success of the previous two films. It can only be recommended for fans of the franchise.
