"If these two can learn to stand each other... the bad guys don't stand a chance."


  • Director: Richard Donner
  • Genre: Adventure, Action, Comedy, Thriller, Crime
  • Studio: Silver Pictures
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 125 Mins

Implausibility is a large part of the entertainment in this romp par excellence, with each overblown set piece becoming ever more ludicrous. The basic buddy-buddy situation is a familiar one, but Mel Gibson, as the loose-cannon detective whose disregard for danger reaches new heights when he investigates a drugs ring, and Danny Glover, as his play-by-the-rules, ever-fretful partner, bring a great deal of spirit and fun to the mindless mayhem. The chalk-and-cheese chemistry of the two leads was so popular that three further sequels were made over the next ten years.
