    Lethal Weapon 2

    ★★★★

    This movie is pretty much more of the first one, which is great because I completely ate that movie up. Some of the magic of getting to know the characters for the first time and seeing them finally partner up is gone, but on the bright side, we get to jump straight into the action and see their bromance develop even more (that toilet scene tho).

The soundtrack is killer, L.A. looks as stylized as ever with its crime-ridden streets and…

It looks like Blade Runner's little brother, even if Black Rain is nowhere near as sophisticated. Japan looks breathtaking here, although the culture seems to almost be as fetishized as it was in movies like The Wolverine. The plot is nothing too special despite some interesting turns here and there, and there is one…
