(1 vote)

'Adolph' Vorstedt and his goons, attempt to murder Riggs by throwing him in deep water with a straight jacket on. Before they do, Vorstedt tells him that he killed his previous wife Vicky. When Riggs escapes from the jacket underwear, he finds the dead body of his new girlfriend Rika. This infuriates Riggs so much, that he drives over to the house on stilts where the diplomats are holding Leo and rips it to pieces. Riggs and Martaugh then infiltrate the ship where all the counterfeit money is being loaded. After shooting it out with all the men on the ship, Riggs has a small fight with Vorstedt. It ends with Riggs pressing a button that releases a cargo container that crushes Vorstedt. Riggs gets shot numerous times by Arjen Rudd. Martaugh shoots Rudd in the head. The film ends with Martaugh telling Riggs that he won't die until Martaugh says he can die. They both laugh.

Martin Riggs

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie, when Riggs is in the cargo area, a gunman shoots at him, he rolls and starts emptying the clip into him - you see the bullet holes in the gunman. But as Riggs is face to face with the gunman, the holes disappear.

Arjen Rudd: Certain policemen in this city have become an intolerable nuisance. They are obviously onto us again. How do you propose to handle the situation?
Pieter Vorstedt: Warn them off. It's my experience that a scared cop is more useful than a dead one.
Arjen Rudd: A warning... Is that not a bit tame?
Pieter Vorstedt: Depends how you do it.

Trivia: The first time we see Riggs in his trailer, there's an advert for some new aftershave called "Hero" on the TV. During the attack on his trailer later, there's a close-up shot of a bottle of aftershave being destroyed - freeze-frame it and you'll see the brand: "Hero" again.
