Buddy cops Martin Riggs (Gibson) and Roger Murtaugh (Glover) are back with their guns drawn in a sequel that is just as good as the first. This time the delightful Riggs and family man Murtaugh are in charge of Leo Getz (Pesci), a fast-talking government witness who knows a dangerous secret about laundering drug money.
Another title that starts playing without taking you first to the menu, supplements include a four-minute Stunts And Action behind-the-scenes featurette, a deleted scenes reel, the theatrical trailer, and online information.
