There are elements in the movie that make it worth seeing, and that set it aside from the routine movies in this genre.
Lethal Weapon 3 is all about chases and comedy schtick, and in this case the sum of the parts really adds up to more than the whole.
If you like fast food movies that you digest and then 10 minutes later forget what you had - or if a simple evening’s entertainment is what you’re after, this will certainly do the trick.
The New York Times
Lethal Weapon 3 isn't that much worse than the two earlier films.
The movie zips around without any true forward momentum. The stars carry you along, though.
More of the same, but it's now so far removed from any sense of reality, and done with such ham-fisted insistence, it's become a clumsy parody of itself.
A wham-bam encounter, it gives you everything you (presumably) want, sets itself up for another sequel, and it makes sure you don't recall a thing about it in the morning.
Chicago Reader
More of the same, though a lot coarser than its immediate predecessor, and the characters and situations have now calcified to the point where they're simply sitcom staples.
Washington Post
Lethal Weapon 3 is pretty much the same as "Lethal Weapon 2," which was pretty much the same as "Lethal Weapon."
Rolling Stone
Lethal Weapon 3 offers mediocrity wielded by experts. It's not a movie, it's a machine.
