  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
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 bachelor 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.

DVD Picture:
The previously released non-anamorphic DVD does not look nearly as sharp or clean as this new, anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD. Colors are rich, with balanced hues and deep, pure blacks. Images are sharp and nicely detailed throughout. Minor edge enhancement, occasional pixelization and artifacts are apparent but, overall, the picture is pleasing.
