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

a fine ending

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
