173. December 27/28, 2010 - Lethal Weapon (1987)

Normally I like action movies. Die Hard, Indiana Jones, James Bond - bring 'em on. I like things blowing up and shootouts and characters having to escape from danger. But this one somehow just didn't do it for me. There's nothing wrong with the acting or the writing; I just could not get into it. I will say that Mel Gibson was pretty good as the suicidal cop, especially since the majority of his great roles are in historical epics. And the fact that he's sort of crazy now. He and Danny Glover have an odd sort of chemistry. Again, I can't point to any single thing that was bad - it's just not my thing.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
