  1. The characters remain funny and likable, and they all live on Earth.

    The quintessence of the buddy cop pic, "LW4" is big on action, playful banter and just enough plot to keep our attention from wandering.
  3. One could argue about which "Lethal Weapon'' is the best, but No. 4 is certainly the funniest, warmest and most idiosyncratic.
  4. I think the script by television writer Channing Gibson (no relation) is the funniest of them all.

    It's a calculated formula for success, and makes for entertaining viewing, but those expecting something with the spark of the first two pictures may be disappointed.

    The old hands still seem to be having a good time, so why the hell shouldnít we?
  7. This movie is exceptionally brutal, cruel, savage and without conscience -- and that's just the comic parts. In contrast, the violent action sequences are quite entertaining.

Whilst it doesn't hurtLethal Weapon 4 bucks the trend of diminishing sequels and ends up being the most satisfying entry in the franchise. Whilst it doesn't hurt that the movie has some spectacular action scenes (table surfing!) and a superior villain in Jet Li, the real quality of LW4 is it's heart. The characters are well defined and the chemistry between them is absolutely perfect. Lethal Weapon 4 makes for a heartwarming finish to a nostalgic, much loved franchise. Full Review »

    Besides being a springboard for Jet Li's Hollywood career (for good or ill, depending on your view), this film is just a forgettable,Besides being a springboard for Jet Li's Hollywood career (for good or ill, depending on your view), this film is just a forgettable, uneventful money-grab. The cuts between Gibson and his bad-wig-wearing stunt-double are some of the most unconvincing I've ever seen in a big-budget picture. But that stands as a great analogy for the entire film... slap shod, sloppy and unconvincing malarkey. Full Review »
