GHScorpiosRule September 27, 2016 Share September 27, 2016 So, I hope I won't be the only one posting here, but after watching the movies again, after watching the television pilot, I'd like to see how many still enjoy or hate these movies. Like I mentioned in the Unpopular Threads, it's been some years since I watched these movies, and they are among my favorite movies starring Mel Gibson. I think the first one was the best...it had a certain...gravitas, that the succeeding sequels didn't. Well, maybe the second one had it. But by the third and definitely, the last, were more straight out action/comedies, whereas the first two were action, with dashes of comedy and drama. As much as I loved the addition of Renee Russo, I much prefer the first two. And like I said in the Unpopular thread, I found it disappointing that the seriousness of the Mary Ellen Trainor's character, had devolved into a caricature. I think Mel did a really good job balancing whether his Martin Riggs was really crazy and suicidal. I really believed in the latter, but wasn't really sure on the former. But Gibson was just awesome. And the chemistry between him and Danny Glover was just amazing. And adding Joe Pesci was just a GEM. I LOVE Leo Getz! As you can see in the movie quote thread. So, anyone out there who still enjoy these movies? 3 Link to comment
