Lethal Weapon 4 - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Martin Riggs, Roger Murtaugh, Leo Getz, and Lorna Cole are back, this time facing their greatest threat ever! It starts on a peaceful night just off the coat, dark and quiet. Suddenly, out of nowhere, Murtaugh's boat is rammed broadside by an ocean liner. Riggs and Murtaugh quickly through themselves into the action, taking care of business, but not before the captain escapes. The boat is swiftly impounded but not before they discover hundreds of illegal Chinese immigrants.
Meanwhile, joining them in the hunt is Detective Butters who just happens to be the son-in-law to the unknowing Captain Murtaugh, though Riggs told Murtaugh that Butters is being kind to him for other reasons. At the same time, Lorna is pregnant and she and Riggs must decide whether to get married or not. They may not get the chance.
Making things personal, the wicked Wah Sing Ku, the man running the smuggling, sends men to Murtaugh's house, takes everyone prisoner, and starts a fire. Fortunately, Riggs, Murtaugh, and the rest are able to escape but unfortunately, for Ku, they want revenge.
Uncovering a deal involving counterfeit money, Riggs and Murtaugh set out to destroy the deadly cartel once and for all, even if it means going against Ku face to face, which isn't an easy thing. Wah Sing Ku is faster and deadlier than any other man alive; Riggs and Murtaugh may not make it out alive.
