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.

I read Widescreen Review because it gets to the details I'm really interested in knowing. It doesn't beat around the bush. I love the DVD reviews and the insightful articles. Besides insightful, WSR seems to be able to put into print some of the latest breaking news in this ever-changing industry within weeks, if not days, of the original release of the news. And last but not least, I have access to the subscription website.
