Got it - and more. Over four specially added minutes put the boys back in action as never before in this director`s cut version of Lethal Weapon 2, the movie that inspired Homer Simpson to check his toilet on a daily basis for hidden bombs.
Riggs wows the pretties at 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 Lee 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 Lee. 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 go after criminals hiding behind diplomatic immunity.

Lethal Weapon 2 is a very good movie. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are back again as buddy-cops Riggs and Murtaugh and they are trying to keep a key witness and themselves alive in this DVD. The movie starts with Riggs and Murtaugh trying to catch a criminal and end up finding one million dollars of South African Kugerands. From this it leads to finding out that South African dipomats are using their immunity to engage in drug smuggling. Riggs and Murtaugh are ordered to keep an eye on Leo Getz who is scheduled to testify in a case. The smugglers don`t want him involved in the case and try their hardest to capture him. They plant a bomb in Murtaugh`s bathroom and Riggs does his best to help out. Later when the smugglers capture Leo, Riggs is told that his wife was killed by them and Riggs goes to their stilt house in the mountians and completly pulls it down! Afterwards they do their best to stop the sumgglers and do what they have to do. This DVD has a few special features and it is a good disc.
