A ranking of many of the action flicks I've subjected myself to over the years, rated 3 stars or more.…
Lethal Weapon 4
The faces you love. The action you expect.
In the combustible action franchise's final installment, maverick detectives Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh square off against Asian mobster Wah Sing Ku, who's up to his neck in slave trading and counterfeit currency. With help from gumshoe Leo Getz and smart-aleck rookie cop Lee Butters, Riggs and Murtaugh aim to take down Ku and his gang.
"We're not too old for this shit!"
Alright, I would be lying if I said I didn't feel some sort of emotion at the end of Lethal Weapon 4, due to the fact that I will now have to find another movie project to work on every night, and also due to the fact that I will legitimately miss the hell out of Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh.
If the Lethal Weapon series has taught me anything, it's that family and friendship are the two most important things that you can have in your life. Without either, who are you? Personally, I would feel like nothing if I had no family or friends. Both groups…
if u love unrelenting racism, misogyny, homophobia, and more, boy do i have the movie for you!
WAIT! THEIR IS NO DIRECTOR'S CUT!
Lethal weapon 4 to me is actually a great ending to a great franchise, it improves upon the third whilst respecting the first two movies but adds a lot more comedy on top of awesome action sequences, this time round the comedy is perfect and having Chris Rock in this movie was a fantastic addition to the franchise.
Proof if it were ever needed that this franchise was on its last legs was the introduction of Chris Rock. It had become obvious that Gibson and Glover couldn't carry the film on their own after a major role in film three for Rene Russo. She reprises her role again here alongside Pesci who really is just here to make up the numbers this time around. Jet li kicks everyone's ass here as the villain of the piece and there is definitely a more comedic tone here with Rock and his trademark shit. Centering the story around people smuggling and Chinese Triads, this just never had either the intensity or the wit and sarcasm that Gibson had delivered in spades in the first two films. Lethal Weapon was a terrific action film, and Gibson was that lethal weapon. In this everyone looked old, and the script was as flat as a pancake.
Better than I thought it was going to be but nowhere close to the commerical wonders that the first couple were in the 80's.
Finally after 17 years since being released I watched Lethal Weapon 4. Not sure why I never got around to it since I really liked the previous 3. A lot of the comedy this time around was really annoying and obnoxious but Jet Li was an awesome villain and the final fight scene was one of the best in the whole series. And considering how boring and generic the main bad guy was in part 3 was I'd have to say that part 4 is surprisingly not my least favorite in the series.
Kinda of fun. Jet Li is a decent bad guy.
The third-best in the series. The plot moves quickly, many of the jokes hit, and that car chase sequence is epic. Jet Li also serves as a solid adversary.
Unfortunately, the yin-yang of Riggs-Murtaugh has turned to Riggs being a closet racist and Murtaugh a closet homophobe throughout this one; two undertones you think would have been less prevalent in Hollywood by 1998.
Can't wait for the TV series!
Gibson and Glover need to cameo in the Jump Street series.
Was not expecting any of the action to be as fantastic as that chase scene. Legitimately great.
Although the streets were constantly slicked in the previous three films, I think this is the first one where it actually rains.
I looked it up and, yes, an AK-47 will fire underwater.
If you're going to mix in some new elements to an old franchise, Jet Li and Chris Rock are great choices. I think Chris Rock's Miranda rights is the most memorable line in the film, and no one kicks like Jet Li kicks.
Murtaugh takes in a group of people in need, and his family is enthusiastic and energized by helping them. It's a very sweet scene in…
Jet Li is a revelation here for the Western-leaning audiences I guess.
Fucking Leo Getz...
Alright, this is the end of the Lethal Weapon franchise. To my knowledge there is no Lethal Weapon five. This was actually a pretty good ending to the franchise in my opinion. Riggs is happy at the end and they are both too old for this sh*t. Fitting end.
So just like in the other three movies both Mel Gibson and Danny Glover did great jobs as Riggs and Murtaugh in their final outings are the characters. Joe Pesci did a good job as well.
So overall I liked this movie, it's not my favorite in the franchise but I still liked it. This movie would get an "isgood"
My favorite "Lethal Weapon" movie.
Not as bad as LW3 because of Jet Li. Still though, pretty terrible.
These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
