If not for Jet Li, Lethal Weapon 4 would actually be worse than Lethal Weapon 3.

Lethal Weapon 4 throws in everything except the kitchen sink -- and that's only if you don't count the one that's destroyed along with the rest of the Murtaugh household.

With 'Lethal Weapon 4' we find the silliest and most sentimental of the bunch.

Hong Kong action plus buddy cop formula.

August 25, 2008
Cynical and contemptuous of its audience, this lazy sequel oozes an insufferable air of self-satisfaction.

TIME Magazine

Mindless, sadistic violence juxtaposed with rote sentimentality: this is how Hollywood has finally solved the family-values conundrum, the question of how to entertain the blood- and sex-starved masses and be morally proactive at the same time.

It matters little that the film is rife with non sequiturs, nonsense and nihilistic violence, because its heroes are so darn buoyant and charming.

August 25, 2008
You're best advised to put your head in the sand and avoid all three sequels.

a fine ending

The very definition of a meaningless, mindless summer sequel.

The climactic streetfighting clash between Mel and coldly charismatic martial arts star Jet Li is a bone-crunching classic.

I heard audience members yelling out, 'Rewind it -- I wanna see that again!'

March 4, 2006
A moderately entertaining entry in an overrated series that sorely lacks the hard-edged toughness director Walter Hill brought to his two superior 48 HRS films.

The surreal opening scene, featuring an armor-clad flamethrower-brandishing villain, is a clear indicator that few things in this film should be taken seriously.

a flaccid, unnecessary wrap-up to a once-glorious series ...

No, it's not very exciting. And that's the film's big flaw.

Fourth time's the charm for the Lethal Weapon series; I say case closed and let's go out on a high note.

The bad guy plot is dull and tiresome; the real charm of the film lies in its comedic elements and character relationships.

Let me just say, Jet Li ROCKS in the kind of American debut Jackie Chan or Chow Yun-Fat would have killed for.
