How about a lethal Weapon where Riggs turns out to allegedly be a boorish, small minded, foul mouthed, woman beating alcoholic bigot whose career is in the toilet.

.




tenstrings -> For Jimmy (27/3/2012 5:14:07 PM)

How about a film set in Hollywood where the liberal elite harass Riggs for an indiscretion that he is genuinely sorry for but actually give other characters a free ticket for doing much worse because they are part of that elite?

How about you just keep your comments to yourself. I think the question was would this work for a Lethal Weapon movie NOT about Gibson's private life!

clarkkent -> (27/3/2012 6:20:25 PM)

Uhm, is it just me or did that description of what film five could have been sound like a JOKE. Seriously, if that wasn't sarcasm, i fear mr Donner might have suffered some kind of stroke during the interview.

As for the Gibson bashing (which is what this is, regardless of your opinions of him) Yes, he's done some things many would regard as not good, but i think the majority of things he said can be attributed to alcohol, which kind of negates any claims that they're his actual beliefs. As for the woman beating, did that happen? I know he was abusive towards some women (which from what i've read was a little justified) but physically harming them? Did that happen?




JimmyThe Saint -> (27/3/2012 8:16:53 PM)

Re; No offence intended. Was only kidding. But you cannot deny he did some qusestionable stuff. So what it is all forgiven? Michael Cimino will never work again over Heaven’s Gate, but you can’t do a sarcy joke about Gibson? And I’m a Scot. But so what if he did Braveheart? And yes apparently he did hit that woman.




sowasred2012 -> Just make it (27/3/2012 9:19:41 PM)

I don't care how dumb it sounds - I love every single one of the Lethal Weapon movies and I'll happily sit through whatever they might have cooked up for a fifth.

Although, I remember reading Shane Black had written a fifth one, I'd prefer that over a story about Riggs and Murtaugh chasing after a runaway caravan, but I'm not fussy.

DonnchadhT5 -> I wish (28/3/2012 8:26:32 AM)

I would actually froth at the gash for this to go into production.




kielerkai -> I love you, EMPIRE! (28/3/2012 9:24:21 AM)

...for features like this.

In other news, I'd also love a new LETHAL WEAPON movie. Like, right now!




ODForrest -> Fishing (28/3/2012 1:07:28 PM)

For starters, I enjoyed Lethal Weapon (not the TV version, which I find annoying) 1, 2 and 3, if I’m honest 4 left me a wee bit flat, can’t say I didn’t like it but there was just something missing. What I think this piece is about, a bit of a fishing exercise to see if anyone wants number 5 or am I such a tad cynical. I would welcome another one if it is an improvement on number 4,




waltham1979 -> RE: Fishing (29/3/2012 12:51:00 PM)

Would LOVE another one but I wanna see Mel Gibson go nuts again (in the film again, not in real life...again). I did enjoy number 4 - if for anything for the enjoyment of watching a Hollywood studio make an utterly racist film without realising - but would like to see them bring back the edge a little.

Fyi; I don't mean the U2 guitarist...[:)]




Wild about Wilder -> RE: (29/3/2012 4:46:53 PM)

About forgiving people for people old enough to remember 2 words Sean Penn. (Although I haven't THE OBNOXIOUS LITTLE TWAT! [:@])




Nicky C -> For me, the problem was ... (29/3/2012 4:59:22 PM)

... that Riggs stopped being lethal. It's like the first one was about bringing him back from 'the edge'. I will always adore the line 'he's on the edge'. Cops 'on the edge' were invented by Shane Black IMHO. Then in 2, he was emotionally fixed but still a badass. Then in 3 he was all like trying to quit smoking and get it on with Rene Russo. 4 was just an action comedy about 2 guys getting 'too old for this sh*t'. If they did another one it would have to toughen up again to get my ticket money.




simjamlmx -> They ruined riggs (29/3/2012 8:38:41 PM)

I agree with nicky c up to a point, except i would say that they took this "lethal weapon" and turned him into a METROSEXUAL PUSSY.




MaytheFaustbewithYou -> check out danny glovers feet. (29/3/2012 10:12:27 PM)

i thought maybe he had those steel foot shoes on but now i think he's wearing sandals.

anyways these pictures are legendary. amazing.

jamesdh -> (31/3/2012 9:47:42 AM)

would've been funny even if Danny Glover had ended up running for mayor in the village and mel gibson working as a stand up comedian whilst trying to solve a government conspiracy.




kissalive -> I LOVE TO SEE A LETHAL WEAPON 5. (5/8/2013 2:22:07 AM)

THE LETHAL WEAPON MOVIES WHERE THE BEST ACTION MOVIES OF ALL TIME. I LIKE TO SEE MORE LETHAL WEAPON MOVIES. PLEASE DO ANOTHER ONE I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THEM BACK. YOUR FREND CHARLES FROM PORTLAND MAINE. PLEASE GIVE ME MORE LETHAL WEAPON.
