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

Murtaugh's boat is named "Code 7", which is the L.A.P.D. radio code for a lunch break. See more »
When the Chinese truck is rammed by the second train, two cameras are clearly visible on the ground to the right of the train: black cloth-wrapped boxes with circular glass faces, mounted at 45-degree angles toward the vehicle, with stage lights behind them. See more »
They fuck you with cell phones. That's what it is. They're fuckin' you with the cell phone. They love it when you get cut off. Y'know why, huh? You know why? 'Cause when you call back - -which they know you're gonna do. - -they charge you for that fuckin' first minute again at that high rate.

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 »
Sure I like an action film just as much as the next guy, but I also like another thing, a thing I like to call plot. The first 3 Lethal Weapon films were great on action and plot, unfortunately this one has niether. Another downfall was to many characters, everyone drug the film down. Sure Jet Li was a magnificent villian, but what good is he if he's in a film this bad. The action in this film left a lot to be desired, number one had the breathtaking fight between Mel and Garey Busey, number 2 had the awesome car chase at the beginning, part 3 had the scene set in the hockey rink during a kings game, this movie has no memorable scenes, and the attempts at humor are pathetic. One last thing, why did Riggs have short hair.
