Only movie of the 'Lethal Weapon' series that does not feature the chase theme. The chase theme was used in the first one during the Hollywood Boulevard chase scene when Riggs pursues Mr. Joshua. It was used in the second one during the pursuit of the stolen tow truck. It was used in the third one during the pursuit of Jack Travis at the hockey rink. See more »
In the locker room, Roger is wearing his shirt around his neck. As he stands up he takes it off, but in the next shot it's there again. In the shot after that it's gone. See more »
Since I met Riggs, I've had my house destroyed, my car wrecked, and now my BOAT SUNK. What's left?
I think that's about it.

It is extremely rare for the fourth film in a series to be just as good as it's three predecessors. Lethal Weapon 4 was awesome.
Mel Gibson and Danny Glover had no trouble recreating the magic from the first three films. The humour was there, the action was there and the chemistry between them was there. Joe Pesci was back as Leo Getz.
Lethal Weapon 3 was released in 1992, Lethal Weapon 4 was released in 1998. Six years had passed yet none of the actors or production staff involved in Lethal Weapon 4 had any problem in making a great movie.
The action throughout is brilliant (are real American policemen as mad as Riggs and Murtaugh?). And of course the humour is there; particularly the beginning of the movie where Murtaugh (Danny Glover) strips down to his underwear in the rain and acts like a chicken in order to distract the bad guy. There are other humorous scenes throughout and a great plot too.
Roll on Lethal Weapon 5.
