LETHAL WEAPON (1987) GO!, 9.30PM, M, AC­TION

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

A veteran de­tec­tive be­comes a part­ner to a young of­fi­cer with a death wish to un­cover a drug-smug­gling op­er­a­tion. Mel Gib­son, Danny Glover, Gary Busey, Mitch Ryan, Tom Atkins. ★★★★ leav­ing the stage set for all sorts of blood-let­ting. But for the first two-thirds of the film, it’s all about rit­ual as the byzan­tine re­la­tion­ships and com­pet­ing motivations are slowly teased out. The real curse of this movie though is the bad CGI, which dis­tracts from what is oth­er­wise an en­gag­ing tale. ★★★✩
