Lethal Weapon 2: Substandard Follow-up
I really really liked Lethal Weapon for a whole host of reason, but the sequel certainly doesn't stand up to its predecessor.

The character development, which in the first film was pivotal, is dropped and your just expected to enjoy the character of Riggs and Murtaugh on the merits of the first film alone, which is alright at the start of the film, but soon it is revealed they are simply shadows of the previous multi-dimensional selves (especially Riggs).

The film lacks the dark underbelly of the first, in which despite having a good plot, the screwed up achololic and weary senior officer's transformation in to coherent unit was nothing less of genius.

Plus this film has the terrible Patsy Kensit in, whose South African accent is actually terrible, and can't act for toffee.

Its a shame, because I really wanted to love this film, as much as the first one, but despite not being a bad movie it just doesn't live up to the original.
