Perfect balance between comedy and action (by MrOtioc)
Well, the script in the film is brilliant. Joe Pesci, as always, makes the crowd laugh until they have tears in their eyes. Just by having Chris Rock in the cast makes the film worthy of watching. Just like the other lethal weapon films, there's the great duo that makes this film shine, and of course that i am talking about Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. My favorite part of the movie is where Joe Pesci has a little "argument" with Danny Glover, and the constant mistakes by Mel saying the name of Cris Rock's character are hilarious. The roof top jumping and the last fight with <more>
Jet Li was also great. So if you haven't seen this, get some some money from your parents and go and rent it!!!
My favorite of all Lehtal movies (by jacquelinemullinix)
This is by far my favorite out of all the Lethal movies. I love the first one two. I am a Lethal Weapon movie fan, so I like all of them, but the 4th is my favorite. It is the humor that I love.Chris Rock and Joe Pesci are great together. I also love Renee Russo's character. It is nice to see such a strong female character in a action movie. Although I would have like to see her role bigger, she still had a good part. Although her role in the 3rd installment was a little better.I would still like to see yet a 5th installment to see where everyone is now.
An Excellent,Action-packed and Hilarious Finale To This Great Franchise. (by jcbutthead86)
Lethal Weapon 4 is an excellent,entertaining Action-packed and hilarious conclusion to the Lethal Weapon series that is filled with great direction,exciting Action,a memorable villain and a great score. Although not as good as the first three films,Lethal Weapon 4 is an Action to watch if you liked the first three Lethal Weapon's.Lethal Weapon 4 finds Riggs Mel Gibson and Murtaugh Danny Glover having to deal with Chinese criminals including a deadly criminal named Wah Sing Ku Jet Li who are smuggling Chinese slaves into the United States and have to stop them. With the help of new <more>
partner Lee Butters Chris Rock Riggs and Murtaugh have to deal with the Chinese criminals as well as Riggs becoming a parent,Murtaugh becoming a Grandfather and getting old and the gang is all back for more laughs and thrills.Lethal Weapon 4 is a Action-packed and funny conclusion to the Lethal Weapon franchise and every main character is back. Every franchise or film series comes full circle and the Lethal Weapon series is no exception and the Lethal Weapon series goes out with a bang with this film. Now,Lethal Weapon 4 since it's release has divided fans with some loving the film and some hating the film,I fall right into the former category because I liked this film and the other Lethal Weapon films for what they are:thrilling,Action filled,funny movies. Right from the explosive opening Lethal Weapon 4 is a film filled with Action and great laughs taking what worked in the first three films and adding it to this film. LW4 is funny and is probably the lightest of the films in terms of Comedy and Humor with the characters Riggs,Murtaugh,Leo and Butters and the moments and dialog between the characters is hilarious and memorable. While LW4 is an Action-Comedy the film at it's heart is about getting old and change especially with Riggs and Murtaugh because Riggs and Murtaugh have been through a lot of things throughout the series getting into crazy adventures and even though the two have survived and had success Riggs and Murtaugh realize that they are not getting any younger and success won't come as fast. The change comes when Riggs realizes he's going to be Father with Lorna Cole Rene Russo and Murtaugh being a GrandFather of Rianne's Traci Wolfe and realize they can't be cops and take risks forever. Each sequel introduces new characters throughout the series. In LW2 it was Leo Getz,in LW3 it was Lorna Cole and in this film it is Lee Butters and Wah Sing Ku. Lee Butters is a character who works with Riggs and Murtaugh and brings laughs and one liners and is the opposite of Riggs and Murtaugh and is the new generation of cop. The character will divide viewers some will like him and find him funny while others will feel that Butters doesn't belong in the film but I like the character for his laughs and loudmouth energy. The villain Wah Sing Ku is pure evil and is physically the most challenging bad guy Riggs and Murtaugh have ever have to face because Wah Sing Ku is so quick and can take your head in one second without hesitation and he doesn't have to say much words because he is that menacing. Every time Wah Sing Ku shows up a there is tension all around and you will feel like something is going to happen when Wah Sing Ku is around. LW4 like the other films moves at a wonderful pace and never slows down until the end. The Action and fight scenes are great and each Action scene is raised to a higher level each time and there is suspense and nice build up to each Action scene. The ending of the film is excellent because it is filled wonderful Action,Laughs and heart and will have viewers smiling at the end and it is a great cap off to this excellent series.The cast does amazing jobs in their roles. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover do excellent jobs one last time as Riggs and Murtaugh once again having great chemistry. Joe Pesci is hilarious once again as Leo Getz and has great scenes with Gibson,Glover and Rock. Rene Russo is fantastic as Lorna Cole and has good scenes with Gibson. Chris Rock is great and funny as Riggs and Murtaugh's new partner Detective Lee Butters. Jet Li is menacing and believable as Wah Sing Ku,one of the villains of the film. Kim Chan is wonderful as Benny "Uncle Benny" Chan,a Chinese crime boss. Steve Kahan Capt. Ed Murphy , Mary Ellen Trainor Dr. Stephanien Woods ,Darlene Love Trish Murtaugh ,Traci Wolfe Rianne Murtaugh ,Damon Hines Nick Murtaugh ,Ebonie Smith Carrie Murtaugh and Eddy Ko Hong give good performances as well.The direction by Richard Donner is excellent,with Donner always moving the camera and giving the film a great pace and energy especially with the Action scenes. Great direction,Donner.The score by Eric Clapton,Michael Kamen and David Sandborn is great and intense and matches the tone of this film. Another great score from Clapton,Kamen and Sandborn. There are also songs by War Why Can't We Be Friends and Eric Clapton Pligrim . Wonderful songs.In final word,if you love Action films and the Lethal Weapon franchise you will love Lethal Weapon 4,an Action-packed,hilarious conclusion to a great series that is well worth your time. Highly Recommended. 9.5/10.
Lethal Weapon 4 - Great ending to a great series (by bujinbudoka)
This movie is the end of a series which spanned almost two decades.This time around Riggs Gibson is facing three very personal problems. 1 Age is catching up to him, 2 his g/f is pregnant and he's facing being a daddy, and 3 he's facing the dilemma of wanting to remarry. Also, Murtaugh Glover is about to be a grand-daddy to a baby by his oldest daughter, and she is secretly married to Detective Butters Chris Rock , which everyone is keeping a secret from him.Add to this the fact that both they are now taking on one of the most powerful crime syndicates in the world, the <more>
Chinese Triads, in an effort to stop slave trading and money laundering. The task of a bad guy this time goes to Jet Li, who made his American debut atleast from an American Film Company in this movie. Yes, this is the movie which launched him here in the states, and he deserved it.This movie is as good as the rest of them, though nothing beats part 2 in my opinion. Lethal Weapon 4 really hits home on a lot of subjects, such as facing responsibility, to coming to terms with who you are. And it ended the series in a way that makes you smile and love it even more.I give it a 9 out of 10.
The fourth and final sequel to the Lethal Weapon series is here! All the gang are here. Martin Riggs Mel Gibson , Roger Murtaugh Danny Glover , Leo Getz Joe Pecsi , and Lorna Cole Rene Russo . Now comes the funny part, here walks in Det. Lee Butters Chris Rock who ends up being Murtaugh's son-in-law, and he doesn't know about it. This time the crew go up against a smuggling/ counterfeiting ring led by Wah Sing Ku Jet Li in his American debut . He is quick and lethal! Killing everyone in his path, whether they're Chinese or police. The Triads to be exact. Now for the family part; <more>
Lorna Cole is expecting, and Murtaugh's daughter is as well. Everyone needs someone. Leo is annoying, yet he realized that the two cops were his friends and they felt that were rotten to him. He shrugs off that, and confesses his feelings towards Riggs. For Riggs, he lost his wife to homicide, and when Lorna was about to give birth, Leo was made best man. He was quick and top-notched when she was going into labor. This movie still has the action, still have the comedy, and it still have heart. Don't feel left out, feel at home with this movie! 4 out of 5 stars!
They never get too old for this ****! (by Boba_Fett1138)
This is about as entertaining as a movie can get! You can tell by watching this movie that cast and crew worked together as one big family. A lot of cast and crew members of the first three Lethal Weapon movies returned in this movie. That is the biggest power of the movie.The story itself actually is quite weak, messy and not always easy to follow. This is due that the story was still being written during production and all the scene's had to be shot in chronically order in order to finish the movie in time. But this seriously is one of those movies were the story is of no importance at <more>
all. The true power of the movie is in the characters and their relations. There are some incredible fun sidetracks in the story and some amusing dialog.Additions to the cast for this movie are Chris Rock as an highly enjoyable police officer and new partner for future Lethal Weapon movies ? and Jet Li in his first American movie, as the new main villain. Both were really good and enjoyable in their role. I dislike both actors right now actually but at the time of "Lethal Weapon 4" they were still two unknown actors therefor there is no reason to dislike them in this movie for me. Another fun role is played by Kim Chan, who's character involves at least one hilarious scene.Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are still amazingly good and fun together, after already three Lethal Weapon movies and are truly a golden screen duo. Other welcome returning actors are Rene Russo and Joe Pesci. It's funny, I normally don't like Rene Russo in movies but this is one of the few I can stand her in. Joe Pesci is fun as ever as hyperactive Leo Getz.The movie also features some top-class action sequences and fights, making this movie not just one of the most entertaining but also best action movie's of the last couple of years. The movie's opening is just great! Maybe even better than the well known opening for "Lethal Weapon 3".Seriously one of the most entertaining movies of the last couple of years.9/10http://bobafett1138.blogspot.com/
Who said all movie series become worse with every installment? Lethal Weapon 4 is probably the best fourth movie in a series ever. I find it incredible that the magic is still there. The main characters still feed of each other and their friendship both on set and off set is clearly felt in every scene they have together. Mel Gibson has finally laid the ghost of his wife to rest and is as chipper as ever. He does this without seeming truly obnoxious even though that is a part of his character . In fact he seems more likable in this film than he did in all the previous films. Danny Glover <more>
reprises his role from the previous movies and that is not a bad thing because the Murtaugh role is the best of his career. Rene Ruso returns in her part and although it has been cut down considerably its still a decent role. Joe Pesci is also back and this time around he gets to add some depth to the character something that was missing in the previous film . Chris Rock is decent. He isn't much of an actor but he is pretty funny and fresh. His part also adds a little something to the all-round comedy of the film, but if you want to know what it is you will have to watch the movie yourself. Jet Li is the villain in this movie and while he is the weakest villain in the series acting wise, he is definitely the most menacing.The action is still brilliant despite the fact that the actors are getting older. The story is decent for a fourth film and the overall execution is brilliant. I actually prefer this film to the second and third of the series because I find it to be more entertaining overall. It cuts down on the seriousness even though its still there and adds a lot to the comedy and this is a very good choice.All in all an excellent film. Highly recommendable for all fans of action movies and the series in particular.8/10
OK... so the language is gratuitous. Just having Chris Rock on set put it over the top. But his acting aside, I thought this was a worthy addition to one of the best cop/buddy series around. It was enjoyable to see the characters we love deal with the inevitabilities of aging and the fierce loyalty of friendship. Some of the mystery is gone and it feels like a pair of comfortable shoes. But aren't those shoes your favorite ones? It was interesting to see the development of Lorna and Riggs' relationship, as well as the growing up of the Murtaugh kids. It makes you feel like you're <more>
catching up with old friends at a reunion! Plenty of action and the incredible work of Jet Li make this movie a favorite at my house. Overall, a great wrap-up to the series and a lot of fun for long time fans. Worth seeing! If the language is a real issue, watch for it on TNT and enjoy the edited version.
Best Of LW Sequels & A Good DVD 'Demo' (by ccthemovieman-1)
I read somewhere when the DVD of this film came out that it would be a good "demo" model for dealers trying to sell DVD players and surround-sound equipment. Well, they were right; it's awesome, or at least it was back in '99 when the disc came out, back when not everyone had a DVD player. It's still top-of-line for picture and sound. When bullets are flying around, you hear them from all five speakers. It here it almost seven years later and we still find many films without this kind of excellent surround- speaker participation.The Lethal Weapon series, this being the <more>
fourth and last of them, was popular because of the combination of action, comedy, suspense, romance and drama. For me, they wore thin because the characters were too loud - always shouting at each other, too profane, too smug, too much Liberal-agenda and there was too much action. Things needed to slow down here and there, and give the viewer a break now and then.This sequel is no exception, although it was a little tamer than the first three Lethal Weapons, that is until going berserk again in the final few scenes, one of which - the hospital scene - was totally unnecessary. To be honest, some of the action scenes in this movie were amazing even if they had no credibility. You just have to suspend belief and enjoy some of the outrageous scenes in here.As usual, there are the left-wing agenda plugs, unwarranted cheap shots at the NRA, it's okay-to-have-a-baby-out-of-wedlock, etc. etc. Although the couple does finally get married, a rabbi performs an irreverent quickie ceremony, another slam on the seriousness of marriage.With all that goes on in this film, as in the three previous LWs, you are worn out by the end. If you are a fan of this serious, this last sequel should please. I thought it was the best of them.
