Lethal Weapon Training

Not what you think ...

A movie in which Danny Glover reprises his role in the "Lethal Weapon" movies. Now retired, he is travelling with his family on a long-distance railway luxury holiday across Europe when he becomes (inevitably) embroilled in all sorts of crime and mayhem and gratuitous violence and destruction, thus requiring his former partner - portrayed by Mel Gibson - to come to his assistance.

Hilarity ensues.

Working title: "Murtaugh on the Orient Express" ...

       I was expecting training involving a control panel covered with various red buttons marked "Moscow", "Beijing", "Tehran", "Pyongyang", "Detroit"...

       ...or just normal 'weapons training' such as new army recruits receive, but just carried out with a greater degree of carelessness than usual, leading to tragic consequences.

       You did read the bit about "Hilarity ensues", didn't you ?   

       Even with the maximum of care and attention, training accidents involving live weapons occur all too often, and are almost never a cause of any sort of amusement whatsoever.   

       Very occasionally, it's just someone getting covered in mud, or getting a right ding on the helmet, or a facefull of sand. Then, yes, there is laughter, but usually of a nervous sort along the lines of "That was a bit too close, actually ... could have been me" and some quiet contemplation later.

       Only if Joe Pesci joins somewhere and says 'okay okay okay okay okay okay...'

       Who are you and what have you done with 8th of 7?

       Please do not adjust your mind. Normal callous brutality will be restored as soon as possible.   

       We may have Assimilated a little too much* of [MB]'s vintage** Albanian sherry***, purely in the spirit of "Christmas cheer".   

       *i.e. a non-zero amount.   

       **an alcoholic beverage extracted from a car constructed in the period 1919 to 1930.   

       ***Apparently there's no such thing as a Trades Descriptions Act in Albania. Or sherry, either; and all the antifreeze on sale is a suspicious pale brown colour.
