Roger Murtaugh, a veteran cop who goes back to work after heart surgery, is told that he has a new partner, Martin Riggs, an ex Navy SEAL from Texas. They meet for the first time when they respond to a hostage situation. Riggs goes in and deals with it by daring the perps to shoot him. He ends up killing them including the one who has bomb strapped on. He gets the hostages out just before the bomb goes off. Murtaugh thinks Riggs is trying to kill himself. It seems like his wife was killed in an accident. They go to where a dead body which appears to be a suicide. Murtaugh thinks it's an open and shut case but Riggs does't think it's a suicide and Murtaugh is not happy about it. They go to see the man's wife and after being with her and their son, Murtaugh thinks it's not a suicide too.
