LETHAL WEAPON 4
Riggs and Murtaugh are back.
The blockbuster "Lethal Weapon" series, starring MEL
GIBSON and DANNY GLOVER as partnered police detectives Martin
Riggs and Roger Murtaugh, began in 1987. From the moment they
encountered these two unconventional cops, audiences were hooked
on a cinematic roller-coaster of action and humor; the movie became
an overnight international hit.
Rarely has an action movie created heroes who connected so directly
with the viewing public. The crowds who cheered "Lethal Weapon"
felt as though they knew Riggs and Murtaugh personally -- and
they wanted to know them better. In 1989 "Lethal Weapon 2"
added JOE PESCI in a scene-stealing role as the fast-talking Leo
Getz and out-earned its predecessor. "Lethal Weapon 3,"
the highest-grossing movie in the group, opened in 1992 and introduced
RENE RUSSO in a starring role as Martin Riggs' love interest and
fellow daredevil detective, Lorna Cole. Since then, audiences
have clamored for the return of Riggs, Murtaugh, Cole and Getz
Now they're getting their wish.
In "Lethal Weapon 4," the quartet is joined by junior
detective Lee Butters (actor-comedian CHRIS ROCK), as the team
struggles to unravel a series of crimes involving immigrant smuggling
and counterfeiting. Their leads converge on a man named Wah Sing
Ku (Chinese action star JET LI), a fiercely disciplined Asian
Triad princeling bent on a complex and deadly mission.
