"I really enjoyed the first 3 Lethal Weapon movies, but this one is a snoozer. Chris Rock is funny as a comedian, but as an actor he's in need of some serious help. The whole movie was so overblown that it's just ridiculous!

Don't waste your money. If you really must see it borrow it. It's not even worth the time to watch really, much less the cost to rent. Even Mel Gibson can't save this one from the trash heap."
Best Of LW Sequels & A Good DVD 'Demo'

"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 few people had DVD players.

A decade later, it's still top-of-line for picture and sound. When bullets are flying around, you hear them from all five speakers. Here it is 10 years later and we still find many films without this kind of excellent surround-speaker participation.

The Lethal Weapon series, this being the 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, and the action often was overdone.

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.

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 series, this last sequel should please. I thought it was the best of them."
Franchise Killer #2: They're getting too old for this shhhhh

"In 1987, Danny Glover, Mel Gibson and director Richard Donner got together to give great entry into the buddy genre. Roger gets body slammed by his new partner and a silly but memorable catchphrase was born. That movie was called Lethal Weapon. Lethal Weapon 2 was an excellent entry to the series and for those that say part 2 is weak are inhaling something that I want to stay away from. Lethal Weapon 2 had a more darker edge and was funny as it was entertaining. Plus it had the best villian in the Lethal Weapon series: Arjen Rudd(played well by Joss Ackland). Hands down it was the best sequel in the series. Lethal Weapon 3 is arguably the weak link of the Lethal Weapon series but it had enough funny moments and the chemistry between Riggs and Murtaugh made it worthwhile. Lethal Weapon 4 has none of that.

The plot details Riggs and Murtaugh trying to bust some Chinese mercs that are printing counterfeit money in order to release the 4 fathers(the original members of the Triad gang)into America.

The humor is forced and the action scenes(that dont have Jet Li) are tired. I knew the movie was in trouble when Murtaugh was flapping his arms and making chicken noises. The idiot writers are ruining the integrity of the character for cheap laughs(that the original Lethal Weapon movies were not known for).

Jet Li is pretty good as the villain Wah Sing Ku but he needed a better action movie to be in than this one. He is definetly a better villain than Jack Travis of Lethal Weapon 3 and Jet Li steals every scene he is in but the movie is so poorly written that his scenes are all you will look forward to.

The inclusion of Chris Rock and Joe Pesci's characters in the movie further adds to the frustration. The jokes seems to go on forever like Leo and Butters yapping about cell phone companies and the constant implying that Butters might be gay. There are plenty of scenes that go nowhere and seem to be put in place in order to make the movie reach the two hour mark.

The only genuine funny moment in the dentist office scene. The rest of the humor in this movie blows(like Riggs asking Murtaugh if he bangs his wife during a gun fight). Its sad that a series that started on the right track must end like this but Lethal Weapon 4 stinks. I watched this movie 4 times and found it boring each time. The only good news is that this movie is the last of the series. Not the way the series should end but at least there wont be another Lethal Weapon installment that would be worse than this one."
