Lethal Weapon (1987): With over seven minutes of previously unavailable scenes, the director's cut of Lethal Weapon is a long-overdue present for fans. Riggs's solitary homelife and the tragic loss spurring him in a reckless disregard for his own safety now come into greater focus. We see that recklessness is new scenes underlining the differences between the two cops. Murtaugh, just 50, needs reassurance about his skills at a firing range. Riggs, not caring if he sees another birthday, coolly walks into a schoolyard sniper's field of fire. All the humor and adrenaline that made this original an entertainment milestone are here, too. No scenes have been removed. But new action and new insight are now included. Include yourself in the excitement.
Lethal Weapon 2 (1989): Riggs wows the pretties of a hotel spa before getting to Getz. Murtaugh receives bad bodywork news from an auto repairman after his beleaguered station wagon sees some Riggs-piloted street action. Plus, feisty Leo shares a newly included scene in which he recalls a suspect's address by complex spins of numbers that, well, no one can tell it like Leo. And no one would follow his lead but Riggs and Murtaugh. It's police procedure, Lethal style. And it's yours to enjoy as the duo draws a bead on criminals hiding behind diplomatic immunity.
Lethal Weapon 3 (1992): Riggs and Murtaugh are back again. This time, they must stop a former cop who has become an arms dealer to L.A. street gangs.
Lethal Weapon 4 (1998): Mel Gibson and Danny Glover return as buddy cops Riggs and Murtaugh, with Joe Pesci riding comedy shotgun as chatterbox Leo. Murtaugh is still the family man. Riggs is still the gonzo loose cannon and - what's this? - family man. His will-he/won't he marriage to Cole (Rene Russo) is one of the new wrinkles in this powerhouse crowd-pleaser that also stars comedy favorite Chris Rock and international action star Jet Li. This sequel involves an action packed battle with a Chinese ganglord.

Part 1: Riggs gets reassigned to Murtaugh. They investigate a murder that turns into a drug ring that becomes personal.
Part 2: Riggs and Murtaugh get into more trouble as they find a diplomat who uses his political immunity to illegal means. We are introduced to Leo.
Part 3: The duo are back to their usual damage. Riggs finds a woman who is his perfect match and they investigate illegal weapons.
Part 4: The final entry has them helping captives and stopping a counterfeit ring.
There is much more, but the thing about these movies is there is so much to enjoy I didn't want to spoil the fun. No extended cut, but reportedly because those cuts were done without the director's knowledge or approval. Donner has said about this and Superman that the original versions are his cut. The other cuts are made by the studios looking for more money. Smart man.
I will say, BEWARE - having watched them when they first came out (before I had children) I did not remember all the foul language.
LETHAL WEAPON - The one that started it all....Riggs and Murtaugh are on the trail of a drug lord and his sadistic henchman, played by Gary Busey.
LETHAL WEAPON 2 - Riggs and Murtaugh are back, this time, while protecting an informant, played by Joe Pesci, stumble upon counterfeiters from South Africa hiding behind Diplomatic Immunity.
LETHAL WEAPON 3 - Riggs and Murtaugh foil an armored car heist while on traffic detail after being busted for causing the destruction of a building rigged with explosives, not realizing that in doing so, stumble on a bigger caper, stolen weapons, perpetrated by a crooked ex-cop, played by Stuart Wilson and pursued by an internal affairs officer, played by Renee Russo.
LETHAL WEAPON 4 - In this final installment and my least favorite, Riggs and Murtaugh chase down a human cargo ring, led by Martial Arts legend, Jet Li. The action in this one is so so but it was below par with the rest of them but the ending was a nice touch to the series I thought.
Over time, the audience meets other villains, not to mention Leo Getz, played to annoying perfection by Joe Pesci and IA detective Lorna Cole, played by Rene Russo. Cole and Riggs do the usual hate/love dance - complete with a great scene of comparing battle scars in the third film.
While the last film is arguably weak, it still manages to keep the action going thanks to a new villain played by Jet Li in his first (I think) American movie role. And Chris Rock adds more humor to the mix (some may say too much humor by then) as fellow cop and new son-in-law to Roger Murtaugh, Lee Butters. Butters and Rianne, Murtaugh's eldest daughter, also give Murtaugh a new person to stress over/love in the form of a grandchild-to-be, much to Roger's surprise. Naturally, Riggs and Cole are on a parallel path with Riggs having found happiness with Cole, awaiting their own bundle of joy. Okay, so the last film seems like family overload, but again, the new villain angle lets everyone know this is still an action franchise, so enjoy it if just as an end to a great series.
Included in this set are the scenes which were included in the so-called director's cut (so-called since Richard Donner once blasted that and has publically stated the theatrical versions *are* his "cut" with the inserted scenes seen as a cash grab) as separate bonus/deleted scenes. A fifth disc not found on the UK version also contains more extras, too.
So with the price being so low, grab this now, make some popcorn and have a marathon with L.A.'s craziest cops, proving in scene after scene, movie after movie, that while they claim "[we're] too old for this s***!", they can still get the job done and live to joke about it.
