Lethal Weapon 1 - 4 Collection Box Set (4 Discs) (Blu-ray) - Blu-ray at Play.com (UK)
Lethal Weapon 2 and 4 are cut in the UK.
I bought LW2 on US Bluray a while ago but still waiting for a boxset.
I've not heard of 2 and 4 being reclassified .
4 has numerous cuts.

No doubt they could easily get uncut 18 today or maybe even 15 but I've not heard of any new classification
Or they could do a Tango & Cash/Nico and just release them without reclassification...
No actual release date though
Can't understand why we've never had a decent Lethal Weapon boxset
Never bothered with the DVDs, as I assumed WB would eventually release a decent package, but it never happened
It's released on November the 15th according to amazon and love film.
the only problem is are they the directors cuts or theatrical versions and will they be the certificate 15 rated bbfc hacked versions of part 2 and 4
Although Mel Gibson being being somewhere in the bottom of actors I like even before that phone call, if I can get this at a good price i will go for it even though 3 and 4 were silly and together not half as good as 1 or 2.
We can only hope it gets released at all
There's no reason why LW2 couldn't get the cuts waived at '18' if Warners could be bothered to resubmit it. Waiving the cuts for LW4 might just be pushing its original '15' rating though. I know something like Bad Boys 2 seems far worse and that got a '15', yet the comedy angle of that flick tends to offset the gratuitous violence. Sure, LW4 is another buddy-cop movie, but that final fight between Gibbo + Glover + Li is just plain brutal.
If you ever see a '15' rated version of Tango and Cash it's the cut version. Uncut version was passed at '18' many moons ago, so no sneakiness required in that case. Nico, on the other hand...
Lethal Weapon 3 is bizarrely my favourite after a rewatching of the DVD box set. Not sure why really. 1 would be my least favourite - perhaps because its the most serious and least comedic of them and I guess its the comedy angle I like in the films.
Renne Russo was gorgeous in Lethal Weapon..... cant remember which one 4 wasnt it?
3 & 4
I'll have some of that, recently scored the Dirty Harry box set for about £18 on Blu from Play, would not be prepared to pay much more for the four Lethal Weapons though.
Fun films, but limited re-playability IMHO.
Only the first two for me, I can't remember anything about 3 and 4 but I do remember I was bored by them on watching the DVD's and sold them on.
Patsy Kensit for me, how she could have ever went for a muppet like Liam Gallagher is beyond me, just goes to show though ... looks aint everything!
She's probably as about shallow as most blonde bimbo's.
I'd not say no, though.
I like the way it says on Wiki .... Marriages for most folk like this, not Marriage
Lethal Weapon 2 should have 'Diplomatic Immunity' from any cuts
The only part of LW3 I can remember is the building blowing up for real at the start. 1 & 2 are the only ones I remember!
...also right after the credits in LW3 another building blows up, adding more to the comedy element.
I like all of them and if the transfers and sound are right, including no cuts I may well upgrade my DVDs.
In my view LW4 has a completely different feel in its uncut format, as the violence is more brutal and has an edge to it
Chris Rock has one of my favourite lines in the entire series, in Part 4.
"Stop! Stop in Chinese, motherf*****r!!"
It did at one time but it got revoked.
I don't understand the reason for releasing this, because aren't they making a number 5? But then I suppose it happens all the time with boxsets
Because none of the films are out on Bluray in the UK
Don't count on it. Not with Gibson's latest rant.
Ill maybe pick up this box set for under £20 simply because ive seen them so many times I doubt id watch them again that much!
Saw the end of Lethal Weapon 1 the other day in HD. Reminded me how good they were.
Buy Lethal Weapon Collection - 1 - 4 Boxset (Blu-Ray) Blu-ray
pre-order for £29.95
I'm not touching it until reviews come out.
I already have parts 1 and 2 on US BD, so they need to improve those.
Are these the extended versions (1 to 3 extended isnt it?)
£18 would be a good price point for this box I think.
You do realise that most Blonde bimbos are just brunettes with hair die.
LW2 has just been classified by the BBFC today on the video format a 15 certificate. It's the theatrical cut (boo) and I assume this is for blu ray..... but ALL PREVIOUS CUTS HAVE BEEN WAIVED.
Title « British Board of Film Classification
Doesnt sound good....sounds even worse for £30.
