140. Lethal Weapon 4 (1998)

Lethal weapon 4

*When we last left off, The Warlock and Neyzor Blades was preparing to watch a movie at Neyzor Blade’s domain. Warlock had just finished watching Lethal Weapon 3 by himself*

Neyz: So what are we watching that you blew up my phone?

Warlock: Lethal Weapon 4

Neyz: What?

*Warlock opens the DVD box he brought in*

Warlock: Lethal Weapon 4.

Neyz: Aww come on, I haven’t seen the others in forever.

Warlock: That’s swell.

*He pops it in and presses play*

Warlock: Let’s start Lethal Weapon 4

 

*The Warlock reads the tag-line*

Warlock: “With personal crises and age weighing in on them, LAPD officers Riggs and Murtaugh must contend with a deadly Chinese crimelord trying to get his brother out of prison.”

Neyz: Oh that’s lovely.

 

*Movie opens with Sgt Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) and Sgt Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) chasing down a suspect (Danny Wynands) shooting up a store with a flamethrower and a machine gun*

Warlock: Just like the second movie we are wasting zero time.

Neyz: I thought he was supposed to retire.

Warlock: He’s been retiring for 10 years now.

 

*Roger “Who’s this joker?”

Warlock: Jesus, talk about a great first impression.

 

*Riggs goes to run him over but he turns around.  Riggs and Murtaugh exit the car and the flamethrower man shoots at them. Riggs says he’s going to kamikaze the guy but Roger drops a bombshell that his girlfriend Lorna (Rene Russo) is pregnant. Riggs is shocked*

Warlock: There’s a bombshell. This movie really doesn’t waste any time.

 

*A patrol car pulls up and gets fried by the suspect. Meanwhile Riggs drops a bombshell that Roger’s daughter Rianne (Traci Wolfe) is pregnant. Roger freaks out*

Warlock: Rene Russo was 43, Traci Wolfe was 37…..

Neyz: That’s a high risk for down syndrome.

 

*Roger’s mad that she’s pregnant and not married yet. Meanwhile flamethrower dude is in full body armor and he continues shooting at police. He turns his radio up to play Fire In The Hole by Van Halen*

Warlock: I like this guy.

 

*Riggs plan is for Roger to run around in his underwear to distract the dude so Martin can shoot the valve on the napalm tank. Roger disrobes and runs out into the open flapping his arms. Flamethrower dude turns and shoots and Riggs blows the valve, sending him into a gas truck…KABOOM!!!*

Warlock: Now I’m sad.

Neyz: Why?

Warlock: Wasted a perfectly good Van Halen tape.

 

*Roger says the bird things worked and Riggs says no, he just wanted to see Roger flap around in his underwear*

Warlock: Hahahahahaahha

 

*Graphic ‘Almost Nine Months Later’* Riggs and Murtaugh are on Roger’s boat with Leo Getz (Joe Pesci). They caught a shark*

Warlock: Hahahahahha that’s perfect.

 

*Leo goes inside to grab his bag. Roger says to throw Leo and the shark overboard. Riggs says they’d get away with it*

Warlock: Hahahaha

 

*Roger tries to understand how Lorna and Martin can be having a baby while not being married. Riggs laments that his ex-wife is dead because he’s a cop. Roger tries to understand*

Warlock: Wow, actual character development.

 

*Leo comes back because he has no idea what “aft” means*

Neyz: I knew that when I was 11 years old.

 

*Leo goes back down after saying pump your fucking ass. Riggs says he hasn’t brought up marriage yet as Leo goes to shoot the shark. Roger “You shooting guns on my boat!” Leo “I’m not shooting your boat, I’m shooting Jaws here!”

Warlock: Hahahahha

 

*Leo says he’s a PI so he has a license to carry. Riggs throws the gun in the ocean but gunshots ring out. Suddenly a huge Chinese freighter zooms by, nearly taking out the Code 7. Roger calls for backup as Riggs says they have to get out of there. Riggs starts tailing. A spotlight shines on the trio and they show their badges only for the Chinese to open fire on them with machine guns*

Warlock: What’s the nautical term for “holy shit we’re being shot at?”

Neyz: I’m not gonna answer that.

 

*Riggs opens fire with a pistol, kills the guys 200 yards away, tags a few gas barrels and sets the boat on fire. The leader (James Lew) and one other get in a skiff and try to get away. Riggs pulls up and the two Chinese guys dive in the water to swim for it. The freighter runs aground and one of the barrels explodes up and the air and through Roger’s boat, sinking it. Riggs takes out the few remaining Chinese gangsters while Leo spots the shark is now swimming in the water*

Warlock: Jaws the Revenge.

 

*Roger and Leo swim for it. As the leader and Riggs go one on one. The leader gets away as Roger and Leo make it to the skiff. Martin opens a hatch and finds a whole bunch of people*

Warlock: Slave trading, good god.

 

*Uncle Benny Chan (Kim Chan) talks with the state department rep. Meanwhile Wah Sing Ku (Jet Li) tells Benny the ship has been impounded. Ku is worried about his family. Mr Proody (Jack Kehler) asks what’s wrong and Chan sends him away. Ku is pissed as he rubs some beads*

Neyz: Something stinks.

 

*Proody counts his money behind a train stop but a car from behind pushes him on the tracks…KABOOM!*

Warlock: So much for that guy.

 

*Ku is in the back of the car and he stonefaces the damage. Meanwhile back at the freighter, The INS agent (Richard Riehle) tells Riggs that each person cost 35 grand a head. He says they’re sold as slaves and Roger perks up*

Warlock: Uh oh, struck a nerve.

Neyz: *imitates the second movie* Because he’s blick!

Warlock: My dad says that.

 

*INS guy says they’ll be deported and Roger quotes the Statue of Liberty. INS insists the slogan says “No vacancies”. A body is hauled off and the agent says they kill one every boatload to set an example. Roger says “At least he’s nobodies slave now”. Meanwhile Leo talks to the news crew (Bruce and Christina Orchid) as Detective Lee Butters (Chris Rock) makes his appearance. Apparently he sucks up to Murtaugh a lot*

Warlock: Oh god, Chris Rock.

Neyz: He’s hilarious.

 

*Butters go on a rant about killing people and shouts for blankets*

Neyz: Hahaha

 

*Riggs says sorry about the boat as Leo says a big shark comes along. Roger grabs a liferaft from the skiff he jumped in and finds more people hiding in it. He looks around and we cut here*

Neyz: I bet he let them go.

Warlock: I’ll agree to that.

 

*Riggs pulls up home where Lorna is making him breakfast. Two dogs greet him*

Neyz: Aww they’re the babies.

 

*Riggs “Gunfire, explosions, sharks, the usual”

Warlock: I’ll take the explosions.

Neyz: I’ll take the sharks.

 

*Lorna has finished the nursery as Riggs brings up the subject of marriage. She figured he didn’t want it. Riggs reads a romance novel Trish Murtaugh (Darlene Love) gave to her. They share bonding moments*

Neyz: Mush mush mush.

 

*Lorna tells him an anonymous source said Roger is on the take. Riggs jokes that he’s been trying to get him on the take and she playfully punches him. She goes in a pregnancy rage and says that Rianne is actually married to a cop and they weren’t going to tell Roger until after the baby is born. Trish knows all about it but Roger doesn’t. Lorna says the father is Detective Butters, Riggs gets excited and calls him Biscuits*

Warlock: Oh god….

Neyz: Hahahahaha

 

*Lorna tells Riggs not to tell anyone. Riggs says he’ll shoot the messenger. Martin and Lorna pull up to the Murtaugh residence and Martin asks Roger if Rianne has picked out any names. He says Oscar for a boy, Loreen for a girl.  Riggs “I like Lee Butter…better, I like Lee better” Lorna slaps him*

Warlock: Hahahaha

 

*Captain Murphy (Steve Kahan) wants Roger and Martin at the station now. Lorna asks what’s with all the sleeping bags and Martin asks what’s cooking, Roger tries to backtrack but a Chinese toddler sticks his head out. Martin spots the kid and goes into the kitchen. A whole chinese family is there with Roger’s son Nick (Damon Hines) and daughter Carrie (Ebonie Smith). Roger admits he was pissed at the INS agent and brought them home. He introduces Ping (Steven Lam) and his grandfather Hong (Eddy Ko) as the patriarch. Lorna joins the family as Martin and Roger talk outside*

Warlock: Ever thought of taking in Chinese refugees?

Neyz: No.

 

*Martin argues with Roger about the legality of it and Roger says he’s freeing slaves like his ancestors did. Martin says “Need any help?”

Neyz: Awww, they’re good guys.

 

*Nick and Carrie ask for money and Roger pulls out a huge wad of cash and starts doling out money to them while Martin looks on confused. Roger “Consider this a down payment on a future ass-chewing”

Warlock: Hahaha

 

*Riggs starts poking at Roger as Trish walks downstairs. Rianne walks in and Riggs gets excited*

Warlock: I betcha at one point Roger’s going to think Riggs is the father.

 

*Rianne and Trish are shocked when Riggs drops that she might marry a cop*

Warlock: Oh you bastard.

 

*Somebody posts a newspaper clipping of Roger foiling the flamethrower guy*

Warlock: Bird man fowls human tank…hahahhaha

 

*Roger yells at all the detectives (Stephen Liska, Robin Link,  Roland Kickinger, Benjamin  King, John Harms, Al Sapienza, Darren Peel, Jamie Donovan, Shawn Michaels and Paul Bollen) to stop with the chicken jokes*

Warlock: Heh, the guys name is Shawn Michaels.

Neyz: The real one?

Warlock: No, just the same name. That’s not even HBK’s real name anyway.

 

*Martin gives a pretend tongue lashing to everyone while he tapes another newspaper clipping to the wall. Murphy brings Riggs and Murtaugh into his office. Apparently the insurance company won’t touch them as long as those two are on the streets so Murphy promotes them both to captain. They salute each other as Murphy makes them toss over their old badges and tosses them their new badges saying its the most painful experience of his life*

Warlock: Hahaha

 

*Murphy throws them out as they continue to make captain jokes. Butters comes up to Roger and says he’s inspiring. Roger asks Martin if Butters is gay for him without actually saying so and Riggs doesn’t deny it*

Warlock: HAHAHAHAHAHA!

 

*Riggs runs up to the police psychologist (Mary Ellen Trainor) and says he has a problem. She blows him off as she thinks he’s just fucking with her. He says he wants to talk about marriage and she dismisses him as a joke. She goes on a rant about him and Riggs counters by humiliating her in front of everyone*

Warlock: Oh geez.

 

*Martin and Roger ask Detective Ng (Calvin Jung) and his partner (Tony Keyes) who’s in charge of the smuggling. Ng says they have no evidence but finger Benny Chan. Roger admits he remembers him when we was just a drug runner. Ng gives them an address to his hang out. Riggs asks Butters what he knows and that they freighter is owned by a dummy corp. Riggs asks if he knows Benny Chan and Butters doesn’t. Riggs and Murtaugh ask Butters to check him out for them, they’ll drive him*

Neyz: Its a set up.

 

*Riggs stirs the pot with Roger about Butters and Roger gets increasingly nervous. Riggs asks Butters why he hates crime so much, Butters says he saw too much gang violence when he was younger. Meanwhile Riggs spots Leo following them. They pull over and Leo says he needs to work on his tailing. He then spots Butters and he asks who’s the perp. Butters goes nuts on Leo for racial profiling. “Look at my suit, look at my tie. Do I look like the Crips’ accountant?”

Warlock and Neyz: Hahahaha

 

*Butters pulls a gun on Leo who freaks and Riggs/Murtaugh laugh at him. Leo pulls his own badge out and says German jews didn’t have it easy growing up either. He says they may work together, Butters calls him a Leprechaun and Leo responds with fuckface*

Warlock: This is movie history right here.

 

*A motorcycle officer (Richard M Sieker) pulls up and says Leo is double parked. Leo says he was talking with Riggs and Murtaugh but they claim they don’t know him. Butters says Leo’s been drinking as Riggs drives off. Leo gets in trouble*

Warlock: Hahahaha what a dick.

 

*Ku is pissed at Benny for the family not being there. He says if this was Hong Kong, Benny would already be dead. Riggs, Murtaugh and Butters show up asking to see Benny.  Riggs makes a face in the mirror and Ku stares at them. Riggs “This is Detective Buckles”

Warlock: Hahahaha

 

*They bullshit with him before getting serious. Butters says they found 3 bodies full of holes so now its a police matter, not INS. Benny says he doesn’t know anything as Riggs spots Ku. Riggs makes lighthearted jokes but Ku stone faces him. They stare at each other as Chan tells them to get out. Riggs smashes the two way mirror and they leave. Ku says in perfect English “If you in Hong Kong, you’d be dead.”

Warlock: Jet Li as a heel, what a shame.

 

*Riggs pulls the fire alarm and grabs an umbrella. Benny’s assistant (Michael Chow) runs for cover. The water sprinkles the entire restaurant. Riggs hands Roger the umbrella but then spots the freighter captain/leader and his henchmen that got away at the beginning of the movie. The trio chases the duo through the street as Murtaugh says not to cause any damage. Murtaugh hands a guy (Jen Wei Chang) 200 dollars to borrow his bicycle and he pedals off after them*

Warlock: Oh boy, a chase scene.

 

*The guy says “Hey Johnny, someone stole your bike”

Warlock: Hahahahaha

 

*Martin chases one of them into a building while Butters goes after the other one. One drops his gun and runs off. Meanwhile Butters is in pursuit of the other. Butter cuffs the guy he was chasing which is actually the leader of the freighter from earlier as Riggs and Murtaugh chase the other to the roof. Riggs damn near falls off the roof as the freighter captain gets away. Butters has his guy help a group of people assist Roger in pushing a dumpster toward Riggs. He falls in safely. The guy they caught claims to be a waiter (Philip Tan). He is interrogated by the trio about the specials at the restaurant and he says “Chicken and sweet and sour pork, barbeque spare ribs”*

Warlock: That sounds good right now.

 

*Riggs laments losing the freighter captain as the captain gets knocked flat by Ku on a roof. They stare at each other and Ku starts kicking his ass*

Warlock: I’d love to see these two in a legit shootfight. Lew and Li could handle themselves.

 

*Ku beats the fuck out of Captain and strangles him with the garrote he had in the beads he’s been carrying the whole movie*

Warlock: Swell place for a garrote.

 

*Hong watches TV as Murtaugh walks in. Roger offers him tequila. They drink together and share bonding moments*

Warlock: Bread!

 

*Hong reveals his uncle was the one who brought him there. In China he’s an artist. They bond about being grandfather. Roger hands Hong his watch he got from his own father when his father retired*

Neyz: That’s deep.

 

*Meanwhile in Guang San Prison, prisoners are being loaded. Four of them are set free. Li Lum Chung (Francois Chau), Michael Sing Ku (Conan Lee), James Wing Chow (James Wing Woo) and someone else (Raymond Moy) are on a plane headed for the US with the fake passports Proody gave to Benny earlier*

Warlock: Here comes Jet Li’s backup.

 

*Riggs is sparring with another officer named Gomez (Danny Arroyo) until he pops his shoulder and has to leave the ring. In the locker-room Riggs admits he faked the injury to get out of there. Riggs says something’s wrong with him. He lost the fight on the boat and then couldn’t catch the guy and now this. Roger “You’re getting too old for this shit, huh?” Riggs “Yeah.” Roger “How about that?”

Warlock: Mel Gibson was 42 at the time. Time catches up with everyone.

 

*Riggs asks what he can do. Roger says “accept it, like I do” Riggs “No, we’re not too old for this shit.” Butters walks by and Roger hides behinds his locker*

Neyz: Hahahaha

 

*Leo gives Roger and Riggs shit for leaving him to be strip searched. He’s working on a case of a lost dog*

Neyz: Awww the babies.

 

*Leo admits he got a new dog and just painted it the color of the old one and left him at the house. Riggs “Nice going Douche Ventura”

Neyz: That’s awful!

 

*Butters walks up to them and says the guy they didn’t catch is the shooter from the boat. He was found strangled on a roof-top nearby and pigeons ate his eyeballs*

Warlock: Mind if I eat.

 

*Butters tries to answer a cell phone call but gets cut off. Leo “They fuck you with the cell phones”

Warlock: They forced that one.

 

*Leo and Butters bitch about cell phones, Riggs puts on his headphones*

Warlock: Hahahaha

 

*Leo gets a call and its Riggs from 3 feet in front of him telling him to shut up. Leo then yells at him through the phone for 5 seconds before saying “Why am I talking to you on the phone?” Riggs tells him to go home. Butters and Leo leave and Riggs says they should hire Leo to tail Benny around*

Warlock: Way to set him up to get killed with Jet Li around.

 

*Riggs asks Murtaugh where the money is coming from. Roger says his aunt died and left him money. Meanwhile a strange car pulls away from Roger’s house. Roger is suspicious but walks in anyway…where he’s taken hostage by one of Ku’s men. Ku walks down the stairs clapping when Riggs through a window has a laser sighting pistol aimed at one of the goons. Riggs runs in and we get a standoff*

Warlock: Ohhhhh isn’t this exciting?

 

*Ku calls his men off and Riggs calls him “Bruce”. Lorna is taken hostage as Rianne and Trish run for cover. Lorna then knocks the guy for a loop as Riggs and Roger start beating up the goons. Lorna knocks out one of them*

Warlock: Is there anyway a 9 month preggo woman could do that?

Neyz: HELL NO!

 

*As Riggs and Roger fight the men off, Ku looks on amused*

Warlock: “I can take you..you..and you!”

 

*Ku finally joins in and beats the shit out of Riggs before they all draw guns. Ku ddrops his but then disarms both men, knocking them out. Lorna walks in and Ku knocks her out with a kick as well. He and his men set the house on fire with Rianne, Trish, Lorna, Riggs and Roger all tied up. Riggs pleads to let the women go but Ku stonefaces them*

Warlock: How are they gonna get out of this one?

 

*Ku and his men leave as Riggs and Roger can’t escape. Suddenly Ping shows up with baby scissors and cuts them all loose*

Warlock: You gotta be fucking kidding me.

Neyz: The little shit saves the day.

 

*Ping helps cut everyone loose and they all make it out alive. Riggs and Roger take off in hot pursuit with a chopper as backup. They say they’re looking for a black Mercedes which has two of the guys, and a Lincoln Continental which has Ku in it. Roger asks why they kidnapped the Hong’s and Riggs says for more money*

Warlock: Something else is afoot here.

 

*Roger says they found him through Hong leaving a message for his uncle. Riggs hops on top of the car and then dives onto a trailer. Riggs climbs in the back of it. He then pulls out the drver of the Mercedes through the glass and into the trailer. The henchmen kicks the shit out of Riggs until he gets the advantage. They then get caught up in the plastic surrounding the van and Riggs holds on while the henchmen barrel rolls into traffic where he’s hit by an 18 wheeler*

Warlock: OHHHHH YAH!

 

*The other henchmen still in the Mercedes tries to run over Riggs but Roger rams into him. They play tag for a bit until the beat cops show up. Riggs climbs back into Roger’s car and says they need to catch the other guy for info on the Hongs*

Warlock: First guy is splattered all across the highway.

 

*Roger drives up a makeshift ramp into an office building and destroys it before driving back out onto the freeway*

Neyz: Get real.

 

*Another 18 wheeler plows into the black Mercedes, killing the driver.They swerve just in time. Meanwhile Ku and his remaining men hit up Customs. Ku meets General (Dana Lee) who asks when he’ll have the money for their release, Ku says very soon. Ku enters the cell where the Four Fathers are held and hands Michael Sing a new pair of glasses. He then calls one of them Brother and says they’ll be united again soon. Ku leaves*

Warlock: Creepy.

 

*Butters shows up and Roger introduces him to his family. Lorna, Riggs and Ping walk up as well. Butters asks who did this and Roger says Benny. Riggs says to call Leo. Butters will drive and Roger makes Riggs sit in the front*

Warlock: He still thinks Butters is gay.

Neyz: That’s hilarious.

 

*Butters tries to admit he’s the father of Rianne’s baby but Roger thinks he’s coming out and an unprintable, hilarious scene occurs. Riggs burst out laughing because knows what’s going on. Meanwhile Leo fakes a toothache to get into the dentist because Benny is getting a cleanup*

Warlock: Brilliant!

 

*Leo fakes and distracts the dentist long enough for Riggs, Roger and Butters to sneak in to interrogate Benny. Riggs wants to know where the Hongs are, he denies involvement. Butters jacks up the laughing gas. At first Benny is incoherent until he namedrops the Four Fathers. Meanwhile Leo is getting a full drill*

Warlock: Hahahahahaha

 

*Riggs, Butters and Roger all get high as well off the laughing gas because Butters turned it up too high. Riggs calls Butters Roger’s on in law. The four of them laugh their asses off as Benny says the Four Fathers will be bought back. Roger asks why Riggs called Butters his son in law and Butters says he IS. Roger continues to laugh because he thought Butters was gay for him. Butters admits Rianne’s baby is his and Roger laughs. The dentist barges in as Riggs, Roger and Butters chuckle their way out, laughing as they threaten Benny who laughs back at them*

Warlock: We need to get some of that.

 

*Next frame is Roger punching Riggs out of the elevator. Now all serious, Roger says that was for keeping Butters from him. Riggs “Well hit him. not me!”

Warlock: Hahahaha

 

*Meanwhile Hong and his family are in the bowels of a counterfeit money racket. Hong is taken by Ku to Uncle Chung (Zu-Wu-Qian) who embraces him*

Warlock: THAT’S the Uncle they’ve been talking about all movie?

 

*Ku says Uncle’s paying the price for bringing Hong to America by working for him. Chung wants Hong and his family to be safe, Ku then kills Hong and says finish the job or everyone else dies*

Neyz: Why’d they kill him off?

Warlock: To put over Jet Li as the heel.

 

*Riggs calls up Detective Ng and asks what Benny was talking about. Ng says that Ku is Triad and Benny is really working for him, not the other way around.  Meanwhile Ku kills Benny and the counterfeit money is printed by the truckload*

Neyz: I’m so confused.

 

*Riggs, Lorna and Ping are stopped in the same spot that Proody was earlier. Lorna says she still doesn’t want to get married….but changes her mind and says yes. She didn’t want to put pressure on him. All of a sudden Ku’s men tries to put Riggs on the train tracks but he blows away one of them and drives off safely, the driver getting smashed to smithereens by the onrushing train*

Warlock: Take that you sons of bitches.

 

*Roger calls Riggs and Martin says he’s sick of these guys, they should just find them and shoot em*

Warlock: I like that idea.

 

*Roger says to get down to South Spring, he’s got his watch back*

Neyz: That’s so sad.

 

*Roger says Hong, Uncle Chung and Benny are all dead. Ku is nowhere to be found*

Warlock: People think American gangsters are bad news, they got nothing on the Triad.

 

*Riggs and Roger speculate why they were making counterfeit Chinese money and Roger says something about buying back the Four Fathers. Detective Ng figures out the Four Fathers are the top heads of the Triad back in Hong Kong. He says he knows where to find them*

Warlock: Think John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, Lucky Luciano and Al Capone of the Chinese underworld.

Neyz: I don’t know names, you know this.

 

*Riggs makes fun of Benny one last time. Roger pays respect to Hong*

Neyz: So sad.

 

*Butters, Riggs, and Roger figure out the Triad is buying the freedom of the Four Fathers at the LA harbor. The deal is going down when Riggs drives up blaring his horn*

Warlock: Typical Riggs style.

 

*Riggs, Roger, Butters, Ng and Partner show up. Riggs says the money is counterfeit and shows General the fake prints. General then shoots two of the Fathers before a huge shootout occurs between General’s men and Ku’s men with the Americans caught in the middle. Roger asks if this was a good idea, Riggs says it was in an idea*

Warlock: I’m stealing that line.

 

*Riggs finally asks Roger if he’s on the take. Roger says Ebony Clark, the novelist. Riggs asks if he’s boinking her, Roger says no, TRISH is Ebony Clark under a pen name. Riggs “So you ARE boinking her.” Roger smiles “Yeah, I’m boinking her”

Warlock: Hahahahaha

 

*Ku grabs his Brother and and runs for it, wiping out Triad guys left and right. One of Ku’s men heads for mini van and a Triad guy shoots him, the van explodes into the water*

Warlock: Gotta have the obligatory explosion out of nowhere.

 

*Ng runs for more ammo and Riggs follows him.Butters takes a bullet for Roger*

Neyz: Oh no, he’s gonna die just as he reveals he’s the father?

Warlock: What the fuck kind of movie would this be if he dies?

 

*Roger calls for Ng to take care of Butters as Riggs drives a forklift to take down Brother and Ku. Roger shoots at Ku but misses and hits Brother instead. Ku is shocked*

Warlock: Oh you better run guys.

 

*Ku leads Brother underground, Riggs and Roger follow a blood trail. Brother dies in Ku’s arms. Riggs “Well now you’ve done it. Now he’s really pissed.” Roger “He ain’t worth dying for.” Riggs and Roger come up with funny ways not to fight Ku and to just walk away…..and decide not to*

Warlock: Here we go, the final fight.

 

*Riggs and Roger get the shit kicked out of them but fight back*

Warlock: Good thing they have a two on one advantage. One on one, Ku would destroy both of them.

 

*Ku goes for the kill but Riggs counters with the Moe Howard special. Roger then runs up and impales him with a piece of pipe before Ku manages to knock him out. Riggs and Ku go spiraling into the water. Ku chokes out Riggs but conveniently Martin finds an AK-47 and shoots Ku dead. Riggs goes to climb out but falls back in and is trapped*

Warlock: Roger better wake up.

 

*Roger wakes up and shouts around for Martin. He finally dives in the water and frees him. Roger pulls him to safety and is excited. Riggs “What took you so long?” Roger “WHAT TOOK ME SO LONG?”*

Warlock and Neyz: Hahahahaha

 

*Next frame is Riggs carrying a cane visiting his dead wife and pseudo asks for permission to get married to Lora. He pulls a gun as Leo walks up. He was tailing him but spots the grave and tells him about his pet frog. He used to kiss it hoping it would turn into a princess. One day he ran over his frog with his bike. Then he met Riggs and Murtaugh and they became his new friends. They’re not better friends, just different*

Neyz: Awww that’s so adorable.

Warlock: Moral is, you can move on.

 

*Riggs gets a pager, Lorna is having her baby. Leo goes and gets the car as Riggs holds up his wedding ring and says he’ll always have this*

Warlock: How complicated would that be in real life?

 

*At the hospital its pandemonium as Lorna wants to be married before she has the baby. Riggs says okay. Leo shoos an old woman away*

Warlock: Hahahahaha

 

*Lorna shouts at the nurse*

Warlock: Is this normal?

Neyz: Yes, raging hormones.

 

*Lorna shouts to Leo to go get a priest. Leo returns with a rabbi (Richard Libertini)*

Warlock: Hahahahaha

Neyz: Okay okay okay!

 

*Leo runs and grabs a specimen cup for Riggs to stomp on. The old man Leo took it from calls him a son of a bitch. Riggs throws Leo out of the delivery room but hugs him goodbye*

Warlock: At least he didn’t uppercut him through a glass window.

Neyz: Why would he do that?

 

*Next frame is Butters and Martin picking up their babies as Leo tries to run his credit card through a camera machine. Leo “27 people here and nobody thought to bring a camera?”

Warlock: Yeah really.

 

*Captain shows up with gifts for the moms from everyone in the department. He takes back Riggs and Roger’s captain’s badges and gives back their Sarge’s badges. Also, Rogr won custody of the Hongs. Leo hands the camera to a male nurse who asks if they’re friends. They all say in unison “No, we’re family.” The end credits are picture shots of the cast and crew to “Why Can’t We Be Friends”

Neyz: *applauds*

 

Neyzor Blades Assessment: Not as good as the others that I remember, I give it a 6.

The Warlock’s Assessment: I’ll agree with that for the most part. It was a fun movie but too many characters produced too many subplots and it became a mess. I loved Jet Li as the villain, the only guy who could legit beat the shit out of Riggs in the series. I laughed many times so it still had the classic Lethal Weapon style. I give it a 7.5 out of 10 and definitely would recommend as a finale for the series.

Final Grade: 7.0 out of 10: Very good.

 

*Warlock rises from the couch*

Warlock: Well that was pretty good. Nothing like the first two movies but still was good nontheless. I still say 2 is the best, then one, then this, and finally 3 in my opinion. All four movies are watchable but the earlier ones are the better ones. This was still worth it. That about wraps up the Lethal Weapon series coverage…have a pleasant evening.
