Lethal Weapon (1987)


Mel Gibson and Danny Glover star in this definitive ‘buddy cop’ movie directed by Richard Donner (Superman, The Omen). What sets this apart from its imitators are the well-rounded characters created by screenwriter Shane Black, and the engaging chemistry between Gibson and Glover. Lethal Weapon is a highly polished action flick. In addition to Donner’s slick staging, the film also sports terrific night-time cinematography by Stephen Goldblatt and a jazz-infused score by Michael Kamen. With Gary Busey as the bad guy.

Oscar Nomination: Best Sound
