With personal crises and age weighing in on them, LAPD officers Riggs and Murtaugh must contend with deadly Chinese triads that are trying to free their former leaders out of prison and onto American soil.
When a multimillionaire man's son is kidnapped, he cooperates with the police at first but then turns the tables on the kidnappers when he uses the ransom money as a reward for the capture of the kidnappers.
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

On the Beretta 92fs, a button on the right side of the frame must be pushed in to un-block the lever on the left side, which is rotated down ninety degrees, in order to release the slide so the weapon can be 'stripped' and cleaned. It is possible to grab the gun, push the tab down, and pull the slide off to disarm the weapon. When Wah Sing Ku pulls the slide off of Riggs' Beretta 92fs, the button has already been pushed down and the lever partly rotated. See more »

The German theatrical version has been slightly cut to secure a "Not under 16" rating. That version was also used for the retail VHS and DVD releases (the video sleeve carries the note "Original Cinema version"). At the time, the uncut version was released only to video rental stores, carrying a "Not under 18" rating. Only in 2001, the uncut version was released to buy. See more »
The magic is lost in this fourth and what is assumed from the end credits, final venture for director Donner and stars Gibson and Glover in a series that began back in 1987. This film carries over all the elements of action and comedy that have made this series so successful and entertaining. However, it's forced too much here with the addition of Rock, who does his unusual brand of comedy, although I read somewhere that if you do comedy, you're supposed to be funny! I may be wrong!
