Lethal Weapon 4 (1998)

Director:

Richard Donner

Starring:

Mel Gibson

Danny Glover

Jet Li

Joe Pesci

Chris Rock

Plot:

With personal crises and age weighing in on them, LAPD officers Riggs and Murtaugh must contend with a deadly Chinese crimelord trying to get his brother out of prison.

Review:

Jet Li with a rat tail is not something anyone needed to see. It is nice to see Mel Gibson with his hair cut though.

Order wise I think I’d rank this one 3rd in order of what I like. It goes 1st, 3rd, 4th, 2nd for me. It would have been nice to have a fifth movie because the decline in quality was a lot less than other franchises.

Excellent car chase.

I liked the fact that Jet Li only lost because of bad luck, he was kicking ass and would have won if the movie hadn’t been about the other guys.

I loved the fact that all the side characters were played by the same actors throughout the series, that was awesome and never done.

Overall, it’s an excellent franchise. I don’t know if the TV show quiet lives up to it, but it’s one of the better adaptions out there.

3.5/5
