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

There's all kinds of quirks and tidbits that are worth smiling at, but nothing like the original movies, really.

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

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.

Channing Gibson wrote the screenplay, and three other writers are credited with the story, which is surprising since there isn't much of a story.

Not only is the franchise growing hoary, by now it's become downright laughable, leaving Lethal Weapon 4 feeling more like a bad Fox sitcom than anything else.
