A death threat made against Murtaugh makes the two that much more determined to crack the case, but they are sidetracked when their captain (Steve Kahan) assigns them to protect Leo Getz (Joe Pesci), a wiseass money launderer set to testify against a drug cartel.
When Leo leads them to the home of Arjen Rudd, the South African ambassador, Riggs and Murtaugh realize that they have their man, but that they can't do anything about it because of his diplomatic immunity.
However, when Rudd's enforcer (Derrick O'Connor) plants a bomb in Murtaugh's toilet, slaughters the rest of the squad, abducts Leo, ventilates Riggs' trailer with machine gun fire, and drowns a consular secretary (Patsy Kensit) that he had been romancing, nothing will stop the duo from making a kamikaze assault on the drug lord's stilt house and the cargo ship that transports his laundered millions.
The review of this Movie prepared by James Craver
Riggs (Gibson) and Murtaugh (Glover) are back in this 1989 sequel to 1987's Lethal Weapon. This time they are tracking a diplomat/drug dealer/murderer who is hiding behind his diplomatic immunity.
