Synopsis


Lethal Weapon 4
Detectives Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) and Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) re-teamed for their fourth foray together in this buddy-cop action comedy series based on characters created by Shane Black. With the passage of years, Murtaugh's daughter Rianne (Traci Wolfe) is now about to upgrade Murtaugh to grandfather status, while Riggs' relationship with internal affairs officer Lorna Cole (Rene Russo) means he'll become a proud papa. Elsewhere on the family front, Chinese triad members in Los Angeles smuggle families from the mainland, but this is only one item on the criminal agenda of triad leader Wah Sing Ku (Jet Li), who executes balletic martial arts maneuvers with blinding speed (fight sequences were staged by Hong Kong director Corey Yuen). The film opens with fire (when Riggs and Murtaugh encounter a flame-thrower in a bulletproof suit) and travels an entertaining popcorn plot path to a frightening, watery climax (which we won't reveal here). In between, Riggs and Murtaugh tackle the troublesome triads with an assist from wickedly witty, sharp-edged newcomer Lee Butters (Chris Rock) and private detective Leo Getz (Joe Pesci), the character first seen as a mob accountant in the second film of this highly popular series. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Lethal Weapon
L.A. cop Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson), whose wife has recently died, is a loose cannon with a seeming death wish. This makes him indispensable in collaring dangerous criminals, but a liability to any potential partners. Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover), a conservative family man who wants to stay alive for his upcoming 50th birthday, is partnered with Riggs. As Riggs gets to know Murtaugh and his family, he begins to mellow, though his insistence on using guerilla tactics to catch criminals is still (put mildly) above and beyond the call of duty. The main villain is The General (Mitchell Ryan), a drug dealer responsible for the death of the daughter of one of Murtaugh's oldest friends. The General is also in charge of a deadly, militia-like gang of smugglers. Adding fuel to the fire is The General's chief henchman, played with all stops out by Gary Busey. Moviegoers familiar only with the relatively tongue-in-cheek Lethal Weapon sequels may be amazed to find out how dangerous and unpredictable Riggs is in the first Lethal Weapon -- and how likely it seems that Murtaugh might not survive until fade-out time. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Lethal Weapon 3
Superstars Mel Gibson and Danny Glover return with director Richard Donner for Lethal Weapon 3, the third in the phenomenally successful action series. In this film, Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) is only eight days away from retirement and his partner, Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson), once again manages to get them both into hot water with both the LAPD and the bad guys, who this time are Jack Travis (Stuart Wilson) and a gang of hoodlums selling armor-piercing bullets. Joe Pesci returns as the fast-talking schmuck Leo Getz. A new addition to the cast is Rene Russo as Lorna Cole, a sergeant from internal affairs sent to investigate Riggs and Murtaugh, but who ultimately ends up falling in love with the caffeinated Riggs. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Lethal Weapon 2
Lethal Weapon 2 re-teams Mel Gibson and Danny Glover as, respectively, "loose cannon" L.A. detective Martin Riggs and his partner, the cautious family man Roger Murtaugh. The villain this time is a South African diplomat (Joss Ackland) who doubles as a drug dealer. Though Riggs knows what's going on thanks to characterless character witness Joe Pesci, he can't touch the villain because of "diplomatic immunity." After perils too numerous to mention, Riggs and Murtaugh shoot it out with the heavies on the deck of a South African cargo ship. Lethal Weapon 2, of course, contains as one of its comic high-points a now famous suspense scene: Mel Gibson agonizingly attempting to extricate a terrified Danny Glover from a booby-trapped toilet seat. Director Richard Donner, Gibson, Glover, and Joe Pesci would be reunited three years later for Lethal Weapon 3 and in 1998 for Lethal Weapon 4. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    More Great 80's Action Flicks Lethal Weapons 1, 2, 3, 4 Follow Mel Gibson as (Riggs) and (Murtaugh) as they plow through mercenaries and drug smuggling soldiers, to south African diplomats, then take on crooked LAPD cops running illegal guns and finally human trafficking in the final installment helped or hindered by Joe Pesci as (Leo Getz) all in all very good movies comedy hits the right spots part three is the weakest of the four films. The fourth film brings Chris Rock as (Lt. Butters) and Jet Li as (Wah Sing Ku) and Kim Chan As (Benny "Uncle Benny " Chan). All four movies will amuse the family in one way or another. Would Love to see another Installment in the continuing Saga but 4 seems to have been written as a finale.

    So if you are new to this string of hit movies or like me, wanted them in blu-ray to own, the price of investment is low for what you get in return! The Leathal Weapon franchise is entertaining and the banter between Gibson and Glover keeps each movie worth repeated views. Lots of action, drama, humor and chaos keep the franchise fresh until, as with all Hollywood franchises, loses steam at #4! Still, for the price of all 4 movies in one package it was fun to relive these movies with my popcorn, surround system and 65 inch big screen at home.

    Still the best buddy-cop movie series

    Solid transfers on these blu-rays. Of course, the first film is the best, the sequels are fun at times, but suffer from diminishing returns due to less focused storytelling and plot-lines. I think it's unfortunate that Warner Brothers chose not to include the director's cuts of these movies in this set with blu-ray branching capabilities. Some of the excised material in those cuts really help flesh out the later entries by providing some nice character moments for the actors to play.

    If you like Lethal Weapon, the REAL Lethal Weapon, then this is the best way to enjoy it. If you got the day off, you can crack this bad boy open and have a good day enjoying some great humor, solid action and a complex story that touches on a lot of real world issues. Many of which are still relevant.

    I am SO glad I saw these movies before seeing Danny Glover in "The Color Purple." He was SO good at being such a horrible character that I might not have watched the Lethal Weapon movies. Mel was so gorgeous then, and Danny Glover is amazing in everything I've seen him in.

    Great movies through and through. Case is the kind where they stack two on each side which im not fond of. And the bluray for movie two has a spot on mine where the player freezes however the disc is clean and looks perfect. Otherwise great quality justlike the movies.
