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 organised 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, Rene 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 instalment are exquisite, from the opening scene involving a flame-thrower, 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 humour 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

Product Description

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play.



Pure dynamite! The Lethal Weapon team has done it again, putting the match to the fuse and putting the wow! back on screen for 'Lethal Weapon 4'.   Mel Gibson and Danny Glover return as buddy cops Riggs and Murtaugh, with Joe Pesci riding comedy shotgun as chatterbox Leo. Murtaugh is still the family man. Riggs is still the gonzo loose cannon and - what's this? - family man. His will he/won't he marriage to Cole (Rene Russo) is one of the new wrinkles in this powerhouse crowd-pleaser that also stars comedy favourite Chris Rock and international action star Jet Li. Wedding bells, ammo shells, explosive laughter - this one's fully loaded!

1.0 out of 5 stars Why have they cut all the action screens? 18 Mar 2000
By A Customer
After having seen a US version of this film I was disappointed to realise that a great deal of the action is cut in the UK 15 cert version. This is made doubly annoying when some of the scenes are shown in the "making of" documentary. Although I loved the film I would not recommend buying this version.

P>Riggs (Gibson) and Murtaugh (Glover), now considering their retirement from the LAPD, are unexpectedly thrown into a gunfight, and it just has to happen when they're out sea fishing in Murtaugh's brand new boat. As you'd expect, the cops win the gunfight and most of the enemies either jump off the boat or try to continue to win. After Riggs has climbed aboard and taken out almost all the remaining enemies, he hears a noise coming from down below, as he opens the covering, he sees a room full of Asian Immigrants, that can mean only one thing. The heat is back on for a fourth time.
LETHAL WEAPON 4 is just more of the same as the other three movies, but Donner has injected a couple of new ideas into the franchise, the countless funny one-liners of Chris Rock and the deadly Martial Arts of Jet Li as the evil, menacing exporter Wa Sing Ku. Gibson and Glover just do what they do all the time as the faultless pairing, fight, shoot and talk their way out of the many catastrophes that they get themselves into throughout the saga. Russo is just as beautiful and seductive as she is in all of her films and Pesci puts in a performance that never fails to amuse and laugh as he makes it through the film being his trademark wimpish self.
LETHAL WEAPON 4 is more of the same, but Donner still makes it work through his use of violence, humour and one-liners that keep on getting better and better, but he tries a couple of new things this time around, and it still works through the entwinement that makes Lethal Weapon a top action collection that should be a part of every film lovers collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Far from great 20 Jun 2008
This is just about entertaining enough to not completely overpower the viewer with irritation. It's basically family values plus the odd car chase and murder. Jet Li puts in a great turn and the action is spectacular in places, but has long since lost its teeth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Funny A Lethal Weapon great 2 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The 4th outing from Lethal Weapon brings the best performance since the original, with all that is expected from them. The action is fast and furious including several great actions with the altogether predictable dislocation of the shoulder scene (just like Yipee kiyah M! F!, from the Die Hard Trilogy). The comedy moments are excellant and those who have seen the trailer with oil truck scene will know that this i just a sample of the humour to come. The film is the perfect mix between comedy and action a real treat. Hopefully not the last we have seen of Glover, Pesci and Gibson.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another classic! 9 Mar 2000
By A Customer
No other film series has managed to keep the electric pace and action going that is offered by the Lethal Weapon crew. The jokes are in full swing and the action is great. One for your collection.

Format:VHS Tape
This film is fabulous. The whole series is fabulous. Mel Gibson and Danny Glover perform fabulously. It is a great mix of comedy, action and romance. This film is about good traditional police work, comic moments, frienship and relationship. In this film Riggs and Murtol are after Chinese criminals who are smuggling imigrants. They go through many chases and scrapes and in this film Riggs is going to be a father (mother, girlfriend Rene Russo) and Rodger Murtol is going to be a granddad. Its just an excellent film.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of those stupid disks 21 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
OK, this review is not about the film as I am assuming you know what the film is like before you buy it.
This review and the one star is for the media that the film is on itself.

One star because quite simply the disk is one of those nasty ones out there that have the film on one side and the extras (for what they're worth) on the other. Tiny, minuscule writing around the centre will advise you which side is which, and the side you want to play must have that title text facing up. There's only one thing worse and that is a 'flipper'.
This disc was created the cheap and nasty way, and if only someone had put here that it was one of these types of disks I probably would have plumped for the four film Bluray Set (which is really quite reasonably priced) and thrown out my previous three DVD's.
