A veteran cop, Murtaugh, is partnered with a young suicidal cop, Riggs. Both having one thing in common; hating working in pairs. Now they must learn to work with one another to stop a gang of drug smugglers.
Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh, after escaping death from the previous movies are put on a hit list by The Triads. When blood thirsty mercenaries are on their tail they team up again with Leo Getz and Lorna Cole, a newcomer (Chris Rock) to finally put an end to the Triads for good. Written by

Roger Murtaugh's (Danny Glover) line of "I'm too old for this shit!" has made its way into every Lethal Weapon movie. Only this time, Riggs amends it to "We're not too old for this shit!" as a sign of defying their ages. See more »
When Murtaugh and Riggs are running from the tanker explosion they pause to look before realizing the tanker is landing on their cruiser. But as they run away their cruiser that was completely shot up doesn't have a single bullet hole in it. See more »
So this must have been what Uncle Benny meant by Four Fathers. Looks like Japan's version of the Marx brothers. Let's see we got Groucho, Harpo, Chico, and uh, Fucko.

A picture accompanies almost every crew and cast member in a large photo album. It includes pictures from all 4 Lethal Weapon movies with outtakes and posed pictures. It closes on a large group shot of the crew, with a back cover with a red "4" on it. See more »
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.
