“We’re back, we’re bad, you’re black, I’m mad.”

After the tenfold success of Lethal Weapon, it was no wonder that a sequel was almost immediately greenlit; released just 2 years after the first movie. The surprise was just how great the movie was. You see, decent sequels are actually relatively hard to come by. It’s one thing if you change things up completely, and take the story in a completely different direction – the prime example being the sci-fi-actioner Aliens working wonderfully as a development of the sci-fi-horror of Alien – but, stick too closely to the original formula, and you could end up with a Die Hard 2 to your Die Hard.

Quality bad guys, just ace all round.

Thanks for the comment!! :thumbsup:
