    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    One could argue about which "Lethal Weapon'' is the best, but No. 4 is certainly the funniest, warmest and most idiosyncratic. show more

    I think the script by television writer Channing Gibson (no relation) is the funniest of them all. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    It's a calculated formula for success, and makes for entertaining viewing, but those expecting something with the spark of the first two pictures may be disappointed. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    This movie is exceptionally brutal, cruel, savage and without conscience -- and that's just the comic parts. In contrast, the violent action sequences are quite entertaining. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Lethal Weapon 4 has all the technical skill of the first three movies in the series, but lacks the secret weapon, which was conviction. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The movie has homophobic touches, though, and with so many Asian characters, some viewers may wonder why every single one is portrayed as either a hapless victim or a wicked villain. show more

    Part 4, to its credit, is the noisiest. Disappointingly, it's also the worst: not bad, just not as good. show more

    Don't get your expectations up, but "LW4" is a decent enough date film. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Cynical and contemptuous of its audience, this lazy sequel oozes an insufferable air of self-satisfaction. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    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. show more
