Overstuffed and formulaic...

The performances are exceptional, Richard Donner's direction is still good, and the film is always entertaining, if unfocused.

One could argue about which Lethal Weapon is the best, but No. 4 is certainly the funniest, warmest and most idiosyncratic.

The relationship/humour stuff in Lethal Weapon 4 is pretty much excruciating, mawkish and inane... The second part of Lethal Weapon 044,the action sequences, are much better.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Although Lethal Weapon 4 is certainly the least of the series, it is a fun popcorn experience.

There's no plot worth describing, no repartee wittier than 'Oh shut up,' no acting moments that rise above the level of posing.

Pardon me for having groaned in anticipation of what, in the full perspective-warping heat of the summer movie season, turns out to be one of the nicer blow-'em-ups around.

Given the expectations that constrain it, Lethal Weapon 4 is probably the best motion picture that could possibly result from another teaming of Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) and Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover).

Lethal Weapon 4 has all the technical skill of the first three movies in the series, but lacks the secret weapon, which was conviction.

The plot is really just an excuse for some wild stunts and flashy martial arts demonstrations, and Lethal Weapon 4 doesn't compromise on either.

The franchise itself is now, alas, getting too old for this, er, stuff.

No longer lethal, Detective Riggs is a crotchety middle-aged weapon now

While the action interludes are impressively staged and edited, they strain for originality...

You know what makes this film eminently more watchable than the last in the series? Two words: Jet Li.
