Riggs & Murtaugh: Action Bromance

After watching all the Lethal Weapon movies, it is very obvious that the team of Riggs and Murtaugh has to be one of the best matchups ever. There have been plenty of duos where they seem like polar opposites from each other, but Danny Glover and Mel Gibson struck gold when they teamed up for Lethal Weapon. They just click on screen. They just seem like real friends and it makes all the unbelievable shit happening around them that much more entertaining. The opening from Lethal Weapon 3, the rooftop scene from Lethal Weapon, the police station shenanigans from Lethal Weapon 2 and 4, and the interaction with Riggs and Murtaugh’s family seem genuine and they are really funny. Even the serious moments revolving around Riggs and the death of his wife and in Part 3 concerning the death of Murtaugh’s son’s friend really strike hard because they seem so close to each other despite their penchant in almost getting killed and having fun at each other’s expense.


One of the best movie duos in history.

About the Author

My name is Omar and I love action movies. I grew up loving action films thanks in part to my father who would deliver a healthy dose of Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis, and Seagal in my movie diet. Ever since then, I continue to love the genre more and more and go along perfectly with my love for the horror genre. What other movie genre can specialize in giving you pure adrenaline and excitement in every turn?
