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.

MOVIE REVIEW

I have to admit it. Going into Lethal Weapon 4, I had not seen any of the previous movies. Following the movie, I quickly rented Lethal Weapon 3 (Lethal Weapon and Lethal Weapon 2 were rented out) but it did not change my opinion in the least. Lethal Weapon 4 was a hilarious, action-packed thriller with some of the hottest stars of today. Even though I was going to say that anyway, comparing it to it's prequel, Lethal Weapon 4 is funnier, more action-packed, and has a much better story. Jet Li is explosively great, his martial art skills extraordinary, his ability to be evil excellent. Though Mel Gibson gets the lead role, of course, Danny Glover is great. Rene Russo definitely got a larger role in LW3 and she probably deserved more, though she couldn't do much with a baby in her womb (in the movie). The swearing is overused in parts but most of the time, adds to the comedy. Anyone who likes action movies will love Lethal Weapon 4!
