“What did one shepherd say to the other shepherd? Let’s get the flock out of here!” Martin Riggs said.
This action movie started a bit dark, then things started to change through the first part of the film and things became crazy and fun!
Here is the basic plot…Following the death of his wife, Los Angeles police detective Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) becomes reckless and suicidal. When he is reassigned and partnered with Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover), Riggs immediately clashes with the older officer. Together they uncover a massive drug-trafficking ring. As they encounter increasingly dangerous situations, Riggs and Murtaugh begin to form a bond. Riggs’ volatile behavior might just help them apprehend the criminals — if it doesn’t kill them both first.
