"One of the 50 Coolest Websites...they simply tell it like it is" - TIME

Lethal Weapon 4 | 1998 | R | - 2.8.8

Mel Gibson and Danny Glover team up for the fourth "Lethal Weapon" installment.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Sexual innuendo (including lots of references to homosexuality). Kissing.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Lots of explosions and fires. There are car chases and crashes and boat crashes galore - a car actually goes through an office building. Also lots of threatening with guns and shooting at people: one shootout results in many people being killed, with bloody bullet holes in a head and torso. There are lots of fistfights and martial arts fighting (usually with audible bone breaks. In one scene a man breaks another man's neck with his bare hands and with a snap). A man is impaled (we see blood spurting) and some men are strangled to death in a few scenes. A man is thrown through a door, a man is hit by a truck on a highway and a man grabs another out of moving car. A house is set on fire with people trapped inside. A bruised and bloody face is shown and a man in a car is hit by a train and we see blood on his face. There's a bit of blood seen on the chest of a corpse. A truck hits a car and we then see a corpse hanging out of the car with blood on its face. A man is shot many times under water, which turns bloody.

LANGUAGE 8 - About 44 F-words, many obscenities, anatomical references, racial epithets and scatological references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Law enforcement, homophobia, racism, modern slave trade, friendship.

MESSAGE - Friends can be as close and important to you as your own your family.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
