If you strolled into the cinema to watch this movie, having never seen nor even heard of the first three LW's, but just possessing a love of buddy-cop-action films, I would confidently predict that you would enjoy yourself, without If you strolled into the cinema to watch this movie, having never seen nor even heard of the first three LW's, but just possessing a love of buddy-cop-action films, I would confidently predict that you would enjoy yourself, without exactly having the time of your life! In other words, as a stand alone film, LW4 is good. For the genre, it's solid, competent fare. It has a bright, witty script, colourful characters, contemporary (though uninspiring) plot, and the required number of action/shoot-'em-up scenes. All pretty much standard. Unfortunately though most of us can't escape the fact that it is the fourth installment in a series that should have stopped after two (preferably 1 and 3 should remain - and chuck out the tacky 2nd). As good as some of the elements in LW4 are, it's little more than a tired rerun, a one-for-the-road type film for the lead cast, and the performances feel as such. It's just too leaden for its own good. I pray they don't go for a 5th. How many '5' movies are better than average - and how many can you clearly remember seeing and liking? Enough already! Expand
