I have Amazon Prime also with my TV. We watched the series of Lethal Weapon for the first 3 seasons and when we wanted to see season 4 we were charged. We were under the understanding all of Prime was free but not so! Beware, it will tell the charge before you watch it! I called them and they charge for some movies!
What makes one movie enjoyable to watch and another unbearable? A reviewer compared this movie to Armageddon and I can see that in a way, but where I thought Armageddon was one of the worst films ever made I watch this film over and over. Maybe it's the chemistry of Mel Gibson and Danny Glover or Gibson and Rene Russo, or any of the other characters. There is a looseness and friendliness that flows through the movie that's like watching old friends, which is carried over into the clever titles at the end. As a great reggae version of "Why Can't We Be Friends" plays the credits flash over photos of the cast and crew. It doesn't hurt that Richard Donner is a better director than Michael Bay although I find his placement of anti-gun posters in the police station and jibes at the NRA incredibly hypocritical given the level of gun play here. Discussing plot and character developement is a little pointless in most films like this but there are small touches that add to the story. I liked Riggs's hesitation to replace his former wife and the source of Murtaugh's extra cash is pretty humorous. Chris Rock is a great addition. He fits in well with the ad lib atmosphere. Jet Li is also a great addition. He plays an intense, mean character and radiates power and intensity when he glowers at Riggs. He's very graceful, so much so you almost believe he can dodge bullets like he does in the climax. I was hesitant to see this movie when it came out in the theaters, I was getting tired of this series, number three didn't really register with me but I ended up loving this one. It's as good a mindless action movie as you're likely to see.
The final in a series of 4 is as enjoyable as the first. Rogers kids are grown and having kids of their own. Martin is about to move on and start a family too. They are both showing signs getting older, but they still kick butt of the bad guys. There's comedy, action and suspense all in this movie. I really enjoyed it.
All of the Lethal Weapon films are enjoyable. There really isn't a lot of intricacy in the plots, but the interplay between Murtaugh and Riggs (Glover and Gibson) is fun. This one was a bit more comical than the first three. And, as with each film, there is a social issue underlying the plot - in this case illegal immigration. Well worth a watch.
It was good to see the cast line-up for this version of Lethal Weapon, I the story just did not have the feel of the first movie. I can't explain what's wrong with Lethal weapon 4. One problem that I had was the poor sound quality. The basic volume was extremely low and the special effects volume was extremely high. I could not find a sweet spot with volume and equalizer settings on my home theater system. A DVD or Blu-Ray may be better for sound quality.
This is one of the best cop series ever produced, in my opinion. The stories were entertaining and the acting, for the most part, enjoyable. Of the four movies, this one was the most taut and Jet Li was phenomenal as the bad guy. As always, I can do without Joe Pesci's foul mouth, but sometimes we have to take the bad with the good. Worth watching, as are all the Lethal Weapon movies.
Film arrived on time and in brilliant condition but unfortunately its in one of those crappy cardboard snap back covers that Warner Bros were using years ago. Thankfully they got rid of them eventualy and just used the DVD covers everyone is familiar with. Still, its a small complaint as the DVD itself works just fine.
5.0 out of 5 stars... the franchise i wasn't expecting it to be as good as the first Lethal Weapon or LW2 but this ...
