17. Lethal Weapon series

Release Year: 1987, 1989, 1992, 1998

Director: Richard Donner

Starring: Mel Gibson, Danny Glover, Joe Pesci, Rene Russo

Lethal Weapon 1 is one of the best movies that represent late 80s action movies. From the fashion to the soundtrack and everything in between, this Richard Donner film helped launch the career of Mel Gibson.

And you’re not just getting one Lethal Weapon here, all four of the Lethal Weapon movies were released at the same time on July 1. Make some time to watch the entire series if you can, but if you only have time for one movie, you have to watch the original. The sequels are fine, especially the second one, but nothing quite compares to the first one when Gary Busey played one of the crazy bad guys.

Mel Gibson played Martin Riggs with Danny Glover playing Roger Murtaugh who is “getting a little too old for this s***” and is ready for retirement but this crazy and suicidal narcos officer won’t let him.

Joe Pesci, Rene Russo, Chris Rock and Jet Li all join the cast for the sequels.
