Action Movie For The Day - LETHAL WEAPON 2 (1989)
This is back before Mel Gibson went off the deep end and was making some good action movies.
Actually one of the rare sequels that tops the original. Bigger action, loads of humor, great villians, and the chemistry between Mel and Danny is solid. The boys take on dirty South African diplomats that is on from the opening chase scene. And by bringing in Joe Pesci, LW2 ups the humor quotient. One of the best sequels and best action flicks ever made.
Murtaugh: "I'm going die on a toilet, aren't I?"
Riggs: "Guys like you don't die on toilets."
