I am exited if they make LW5. Awesome. Although, I really dont like the overly done characters of Joe Peci or Chris Rock. We need some decent acting instead. Dont bring back any of these two, please...And, as much as I like Jazz(I love David Sandborn)the music was a little too Cheezzy. That commedy cop stuff is not fitting in these days. Mel and Danny are fine, though:its their movies.

Um... Murtaugh is 72 Years old. Riggs is 59 Years old.
If there wasn't obvious evidence of their age within the first 4 Movies (eg: Murtaugh's 50th Birthday in LW1) maybe we could pretend they are a little younger and perhaps get away with a Fifth installment.

Unfortunately their ages (or at least Murtaughs)are well documented within the scripts. We know that Murtaugh is 72 Years old and that's a little too old to be going after the Bad guys.

This Movie will not happen with Mel Gidson or Danny Glover in it.

Hopefully they leave the series completely alone, Lethal Weapon 4 was a little painful but did have good closure at the end.

Love Lethal Weapon but people & Characters get old (and so do storylines)

Leathal Weapon was god until the 90's.....3 and four were okay, if you were a fan.... but, man, I liked the eighties ones... were 70 percent of the movie was shot at night.... and day time was funny lunch scenes, or office scenes, kpet to a minimum. Also, theSax and Electricn Guitar are a MUST, but they have to do it like it IS 1987, and not try to kinda do it just to suffice somthing.
Also, I hope it makes fun of HIPSTERS... It would be hillarious if they did a cocaine bust on some PBR drinking rich kids in girl pants.
I was never crazy about Rene Russo. I would've liked it better if Riggs had just been a single guy, hanging out, and maybe eventually wound up dating Murtahs Daughter.... It would have been a big deal, and they coulda had a fight over it, and then he would have really liked her and it would have been ok. Just a maybe, but it'd be better then him having to be with some tough cop girl he didn't really have chemistry with. I eman, Riggs was funny, and she was... well, it wasn't terrible, just.... hmmmmm...
Oh well, not to worry. maybe this one will be awesome. But, can they have gotten divorced or somthign, because man, I just didn't feel it.

I don't think they will make a LW 5, guys. They're too old for this $#!^. lol (wink)

Mel, told us, he got sore fighting the guy in Edge Of Darkness, but he still can do it.

Push for LW 5, guys, you just don't know, when it comes to Mel Gibson. He is crazy enough to do it, if you dare him to do it.

ok, i dare you to do a Lethal Weapon 5, this year.

you got nothing to lose, its a winner

and about getting hurt, well, is there any bone in his body left to be hurted or broken?
Nope. so, big deal, lets do it, that movie is a winner.

I picture maertin Riggs, with a french new sergent, jsut put at the station form french across the ocean americano-franco cooperation on terror or whatever, and havign ahellof a time together with french prouesse and funny terminology, and Mel Gibson tlaking french to impress the french gallery , but getting spanked for "OH saying such a thing to a lady!

super good scenes actiosn and fun, wiht cocasseries, where they misunderstood the point nad whats to be done, both the french woman, and riggs when listgening to the french girl

she will speak fluent english with some "tell me that again" to laugh your butt off, and will get like a fury if someone criticise her sexy shape or her accent! LOL
