Not really gun related…

I'm getting too old for this… but Lethal Weapon is a cool movie for a bunch of reasons.

  1. The chemistry between Danny Glover and Mel Gibson is fantastic
  2. Richard Donner
  3. Gary Busey. An action movie is only as good as its villain, and  Busey matched Gibson’s insanity note for crazy note
  4. It was the first movie that I can think of where one of good guys carried a “wonder nine“, which unfortunately led to movies with “pistols as bullet hoses” for the next twenty years, but at the time, it was COOL!

There, I knew I squeeze in a gun reference there if I tried hard enough! 

Speaking of which, here’s a deleted scene from the movie you may not have seen.
