Usually the rule is "the tighter an action movie is, the better" but Shane Black's screenplays are so character-focused and vibe-based that it really does lend itself to a maximalist vision. So in this case I'm happy to more time to spend with these characters and revel in their growth (as they kick ass and take down a bunch of crooked rich guys to avenge friends/family at the holidays). A great movie made even better. A bit of visual quality dip with the deleted scenes, but that's to be expected. It's Lethal Weapon, it rules, and this is the version you should watch going forward.
