The group is back for another go-around. Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh (Mel Gibson and Danny Glover) were joined by Leo (Joe Pesci) in the second film and by Lorna Cole (Rene Russo) in the third, and now Lee Butters (Chris Rock) joins them. He adds additional humor to the scenes. This time, Chinese gangsters deal in slave labor and counterfeiting, while our group is the target for The Triad. Action and explosions reach a new high, as the heroes banter their way through to another successful conclusion.
