Still good. I used to look down on this one because it does feature Danny Glover with his pants down, trapped by a bomb on the shitter. Watching it again now, its actually kind of touching.

I always forget that this is where Joe Pesci's character was introduced. I figured him for a number 3 intro, but that's when we get Rene Russo. I get why Shane Black is unattached to this emotionally and why he left at the time. I sure would love to read his original script for it and the baller ending the Internet describes. It's funny to hear him talk in disgust at where the series goes, and how #4 features Riggs changing a diaper. I totally agree...but I kinda want keep to re-watching this series and get to Jet Li kicking ass in the fourth one. And Chris Rock being hilarious. I saw LW4 twice in theaters in the same day. I was like 14 so who knows if it'll still hold up, but we'll see.

One of the best sequel successes. It's hard to live up to the original, but this one manages to do it.
