Product Description

Amazon.ca

In the fourth and reportedly final film of the Lethal Weapon series, director Richard Donner reunites with Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, who reprise their roles as Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh for one last hurrah in a film that is decidedly better than the third and first chapters. This time the pair are pitted against Jet Li, who plays the leader of a Chinese organized crime unit. Li, a veteran of hundreds of Hong Kong action films, more than holds his own against the more established team of Gibson, Glover, Renee Russo, and Joe Pesci with his subtle yet strong portrayal of the quietly irrepressible Wah Sing Ku. As always with the Lethal series, the plot is incredibly simple to follow: someone steals something, someone gets killed, and Murtaugh is reluctantly thrown into the mix while Riggs dives into the case with gleeful aplomb. As with the previous movies, we watch for the sheer action and chemistry alone. The action sequences throughout the fourth installment are exquisite, from the opening scene involving a flamethrower, a burning building, and a half-naked Murtaugh strutting like a chicken (don't ask, just watch), to the climactic showdown that pays genuine tribute to Jet Li's masterful martial art skills. As for chemistry, the bond between these characters is so strong by now that you sometimes feel like you're watching a TV series in its sixth season, such is the warm familiarity between the audience and the personalities on the screen. The humor is more fluid than ever, aided immeasurably by the casting of comedian Chris Rock, who like Li does a great job of making his presence known in some memorable verbal tirades that would bring a smile out of the Farrelly brothers. But it's the verbal and emotional jousting between Glover and Gibson that makes this fourth episode especially appealing; both are in peak form with great physical and verbal timing. One can only hope that if this is indeed the last of the Lethal films, that it won't be the last time we see Glover and Gibson together on screen. --Jeremy Storey

2.0 out of 5 stars Should have stopped at 3 March 7 2003
By T. King
Format:DVD
Actually, take elements of LW3 and LW4 and cut out all the filler and you may have a pretty good movie. I loved the first film. It had the perfect combination of grit and humor. Glover and Gibson are excellent together but can't someone find another vehicle for them to work in than this series?
These films have been copied and parodied so much that by this installment it parodies itself. In order to stop a homicidal maniac with a machine gun and a flame thrower Danny Glover distracts him by removing his clothes and doing a chicken dance. What a waste of a great actor's talent and a shining example of crappy Hollywood script writing. While I'm not a big fan of political correctness, some of the ethnic jokes in this film made me wince. A car chase on the highway quickly goes from exciting and entertaining to ridiculous as Riggs and Murtagh get bumped off the road only to land in the middle of an office building. Does this stop them? No. Our heroes simply floor the accelerator, smashing through a crowded office, missing everyone,and smash out the other side of the building to continue the chase. Is this an action film or a Road Runner cartoon?
On the plus side there is Renee Russo. She and Mel have great chemistry and make a very believable couple. Though I love Pesci's Leo Getz character I don't think he was needed in this film. Jet Li made a great villian. But please, please don't make a Lethal Weapon 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie to end the series, April 12 2004
Format:DVD
I like all the Lethal Weapon movies, and this one is no exception. I don't see why anybody wouldn't like "Lethal Weapon 4" because it's everything most people would expect it to be. It has a lot of fast paced action, good special effects, and a lot of laughs. What made "Lethal Weapon 4" one of the best two of the series in my opinion is the comedy that's in the movie. Without a doubt, it has more comedy in it than the other three movies in the series by far. Some of the funniest parts are when Joe Pesci makes friends with a shark, and the laughing gas scene at the dentist's office. Like always, Mel Gibson and Danny Glover put on great performances, and Joe Pesci is hilarious. I'm not crazy about Chris Rock's stand up comedy show, but he was actually pretty good in this movie. Jet-Li also shows off some of his awesome fighting moves at times in the movie.
If you like movies with a lot of action and a lot of comedy, I recommend getting "Lethal Weapon 4."

3.0 out of 5 stars Lethal Sequelitus Oct. 8 2003
Format:DVD
Don't listen to those people slamming Lethal Weapon 4 or praising it. The truth is somewhere in the middle. Only the intellectually immature and unsophisticated think that Lethal 4 is better than the first two. Light, slapstick humour does not a masterpiece make.
Lethal Weapon 4 is certainly not on the same level as numbers 1 or 2. The first two films established a darker, more sophisticated tone for action films with their brooding, suicidal on-the-edge hero Martin Riggs played with real pathos by Mel Gibson. True the plotlines were as thin as Murtaugh's middle name (and with his wife's cooking we're not surprised) but with Shane Black's and the late Jeffrey Boam's wit laden scripts these two films reinvigorated the tired buddy cop concept for action films.
The main problem with Lethal 4 is the decision to dump the pathos and up the ante on the slapstick humour that quite frankly doesn't belong in the series. If you can get past the lighter tone (which the trailer trash have embraced whole-heartedly) then Lethal 4 can be quite entertaining in its own way.
The plot (unlike the previous three installments) actually requires some thought and shows at least some ambition but is hampered by the convoluted turns it takes. Jet Li is the ass-kicking super villain in this one and takes the case as the most thrilling and cinematic of the bunch. The plot involves something to do with smuggling illegals from China who must pay their passage back by producing counterfeit money.
Another problem is the plethora of characters (over)populating the Lethal world. Since the second film introduced the slicko Leo Getz the producers for some reason have not been able to resist bringing each new member to the fold back for subsequent installments.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mindless politics blurs with mindless plot Feb. 23 2003
Format:DVD
The original "Lethal Weapon" was excellent but, like most sequels, it was all downhill from there. Jet Li was entertaining, Chris Rock somewhat bearable, but everyone else is so used and washed up. Can Joe Pesci be any more annoying? I heard through the grapevine that in real life Pesci and Gibson hate being in sequel after revolting sequel of the LW series, and that they starred in this one on the promise that either their characters be killed, or that this be the LAST ONE!!! My two star rating goes to, and only to, my hope that this rumor is true, and that such insightful human beings had the courage to stand up to and stop this 4-car wagon train from taking us to it's final destination...hell.
And don't be sure to miss the very unsubtle political messages smeared across this rotten filth at all strategic points. The movie starts with a bid supporting unlimited access to any refugee who wants to emigrate to America, regardless of any background check whatsoever. A Port Authority Cop demonizes himself by suggesting that America can't afford to keep taking in wave after wave after wave of unrestrained immigration, as Riggs and Murdock stand there giving him unapproving glares and barely-perceivable shaking of heads. Of course, his argument is destroyed when Murdock generously takes in, and supports for weeks, a large family of Chinese immigrants...all in the household of his already-large, single-income family. Please...spare me the unbelievable utopian fantasy.
You won't miss the gun control politics either, because the director shoves it in your face with a huge anti-NRA poster in the middle of a police station, even though most police will agree that gun control only plays into the hands of criminals. On the poster, we see a crawling baby reaching for a handgun.
