I couldn't imagine a better way to end the series than with Lethal Weapon 4. It's a very good movie, with a great plot and great actors. I love how every character in these movies has been played by the same people. The chemistry, not only between Gibson and Glover, but the whole cast is very evident in this movie. It's a little more light-hearted than it's sleazy predecessors, but it is still true to it's form and very entertaining. Jet Li is probably the best enemy yet. They put up quite a fight just to bring him down. Joe Pesci is at his best in this movie, and even softens up a bit (note the Froggy story). Chris Rock was a GREAT addition to the movie as well. He is nothing short of hilarious. His monologue in the car about his childhood was so funny, I don't know how the actors kept a straight face. The ending pretty much sums up the whole series and pretty much confirms that this is the last movie. If you have watched the other Lethal Weapon movies dozens of times like I have, you will love this one just as much.

An explosive beginning once again kicks off the action for our favorite team of Los Angeles Detectives, Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh, in Richard Donner's "Lethal Weapon 4," starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. In this fourth installment of the popular action/drama series, the pair are confronted with a murderous Chinese Triad with links to Hong Kong, that deals in counterfeiting and the smuggling of illegals into the country, where their new lives become nothing more than virtual slavery. It's a subject that touches a nerve with Murtaugh (Glover), which brings about an irrational decision when he thinks he can help. But not to worry; Riggs (Gibson) is there to back him up, and together they take on one of their most formidable opponents yet, Wah Sing Ku (Jet Li), head of the Triad, who happens to be in the process of discharging a personal agenda from which he will not be deterred. And making matters all the more complicated, Riggs and Murtaugh each have personal issues of their own to deal with: Murtaugh with his daughter, Rianne (Traci Wolfe), and Riggs with Lorna Cole (Rene Russo), the first woman with whom he's had a long standing relationship since the death of his wife. With three highly successful "Lethal" outings under their belts, it would have been easy for director Donner and his stars to phone this one in, make a few bucks and move on. But not these guys; Refusing to rest on their laurels, they deliver yet another exceptional, action-packed movie that maintains the quality and consistency of the first three. Gibson and Glover manage to take their characters to yet another level, keeping it all fresh and refusing to cruise through the comfort zone on auto pilot.Read more ›

I'll be honest that it was Jet Li that made me want to see this movie, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it ever since. While I have not seen the first 3 Lethal Weapons (yet) I had no problem understanding this 4th (and hopefully not last) film. It's obvious there is a serious connection between the Riggs and Murtaugh charcaters, and both Mel Gibson and Danny Glover have fluid chemistry together with these roles. Joe Pesci adds his usual humor, and Chris Rock was a nice addition with the humor in this film as well. But it was Jet Li that stood out the most for me - not bad for a villain who barely stands 5'5" or so.

Letahl Weapon 4 begins loud and stays in high gear till the end. Whether it is the constant humor, fun character relations, or surprsingly entertaining martial arts action, I just never got bored. Its not the funniest movie I have ever seen and it doesn't have the best action, but its one of the better films I have seen with a great mix of everything.

As mentioned, this is Jet Li's first American film and it's no wonder he has become a success since. Its funny to see how the camera is used in such angles at times to make Li appear a little taller, but a few times you can see just how short he is compared to everyone else. Not that it really matters, just one look into his eyes and you can see the villain shine. He adds great martial arts action to the film, but I liked how the fights stayed real for the most part. There are no long fight scenes, but even Li gets beat up a little by Riggs and Murtaugh (though he fought both of them at once).

Even if you have not seen the other Lethal Weapon movies like myself, I think you will enjoy this just fine. This is a great buddy film, but probably just about anyone will enjoy it with a little mix of everything.

IN THIS ONE, RIGGS AND MURTAUGH BATTLE ASIAN GANGSTERS, AND ON THE OTHERHAND, RIGGS IS DEALING WITH BECOMING A FATHER WHILE MURTAUGH IS DEALING WITH BECOMING A GRANDFATHER. GIBSON AND GLOVER JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO A BAD MOVIE TOGETHER. EVEN JUST 5 YEARS AGO, THIS MOVIE PROVED THAT THE LETHAL WEAPON SERIES WASN'T GETTIN OLD. ADDED TO THIS CAST; CHRIS ROCK, AS AN OVERZEALOUS COP WHO ADMIRES MURTAUGH, JET LI, AS THE VILLAIN WHO'S THE LEADER OF A CHINESE CRIME SYNDICATE. VERY GOOD ACTION, PLENTY OF COMEDY. GIBSON AND GLOVER MIGHT BE GETTING OLD, BUT THEY CAN STILL SATISFY ACTION FANS WITH THESE LOVELY MOVIES. TOO BAD THERE MOST LIKELY WON'T EVER BE A ''LETHAL WEAPON 5''.
