Who could go past ‘L’ without a partaking in an early-90’s action fest?
Our ‘L’ movies were Lethal Weapon and The Last Boy Scout.
Lethal Weapon is regarded as a genre-defining movie. Odd-couple cops, cracking skulls + one-liners, one-dimensional bad guys, who could ask for more? It’s like a simpler version of Dirty Harry (if that’s even possible).
Anyhoo, Lethal Weapon was ok. It has the most ridiculous ending – some random fight scene – as though the director figured he had 10 spare minutes, so let’s have them duke it out.
The Last Boy Scout was in a similar vein. Bruce Willis plays the hung-over, troubled soul very well (the same character from most of his movies it would seem). Some of the dialog was genuinely funny, and it was a perfect Wednesday night movie.
Lethal Weapon and The Last Boy Scout are recommended mid-week movies.
‘M’ is going to be easy…
