Watch the original version of Lethal Weapon 4


The city of Los Angeles had seen its fair share of crime over the years, but the case of Wah Sing Ku was unlike anything the LAPD had ever faced before. Ku was a ruthless Asian mobster who had his hands in every illegal operation imaginable, from slave trading to counterfeit currency. He was a shadowy figure who operated in the shadows, his presence felt only through the violence and terror he left in his wake.

Detectives Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh had been partners for a long time, but they had never faced a case as daunting as Ku’s. The criminal mastermind seemed to be always one step ahead of them, always outwitting and outmaneuvering them. But Riggs and Murtaugh were not the sort of men to back down from a challenge. They were mavericks, rule-breakers, and trouble-makers, but they were also two of the best detectives on the force. With the help of their trusted allies, they were determined to bring Ku to justice, no matter the cost.

Chapter 1:

The sun was just starting to rise over Los Angeles as Riggs and Murtaugh drove to their next case. They were tired, grumpy, and in desperate need of a coffee break, but they knew that a detective’s work was never done. Their radios crackled to life, and they heard the voice of their friend and fellow gumshoe, Leo Getz.

“Hey, guys, I got a tip for you,” Leo said. “There’s a new player in town, name’s Wah Sing Ku. He’s been smuggling counterfeit currency into the country, and I hear he’s also involved in the slave trade.”

Riggs and Murtaugh shared a look. This was big. Counterfeit currency was bad enough, but the slave trade was a whole different level of evil.

“Thanks, Leo,” Murtaugh said. “We’ll look into it.”

They drove to the address Leo had given them, a rundown warehouse on the outskirts of the city. As they parked their car and got out, they saw a group of men loading boxes into a truck.

“Looks like we found our boys,” Riggs said, grinning.

They approached the group, flashing their badges. The men immediately dropped their boxes and pulled out guns, sparking a firefight. Riggs and Murtaugh took cover behind some nearby crates and returned fire, taking out several of the attackers.

The firefight was short-lived, and the remaining men fled the scene. Riggs and Murtaugh searched the warehouse and found several crates filled with fake currency.

“We need to take this evidence in and get it analyzed,” Murtaugh said.

As they loaded the crates into their car, they heard a sound from one of the boxes. They opened it up and were horrified to find several young women locked inside, clearly victims of the slave trade.

“We have to do something about this,” Riggs said, his voice shaking with anger.

Murtaugh nodded, his normally jovial face set in a grim expression. They knew they had stumbled onto something big, something that went beyond just counterfeit money. Wah Sing Ku was in their sights, and they were determined to take him down.

Riggs and Murtaugh followed the lead that pointed them to the shipping yard. Upon their arrival, they saw a large number of shipping containers lining up in long rows. They scattered around the area, searching for any clues that could indicate Ku’s involvement in the slave trade.

Riggs approached a group of workers unloading a container. He flashed his badge and requested to inspect the cargo. The workers were initially hesitant, but Riggs persisted, asserting that he had the authority to search any shipment that entered the country.

As they opened the container, a smell that reeked of sweat and human waste hit their noses. They were greeted by a horrid scene of chained and emaciated bodies squeezed inside the container like sardines. The detainees’ eyes were hollow, their skin was yellowed, and their bellies were distended.

Riggs and Murtaugh’s anger boiled as they discovered how Ku and his gang treated these people. They were infuriated at the injustice and inhumanity of the situation. The detectives immediately called for backup and medical assistance, and the workers reported that they had seen Ku and his men around the area.

With new information at hand, Riggs and Murtaugh continued their search for the mastermind behind the slave trade. As they explored further, they found a hidden entrance that led to an underground chamber. The chamber was vast, and the walls were lined with cages where hundreds of people were being held captive.

The detectives were in shock at the sight before them. Ku’s operation was organized, and they had taken great pains to keep their activities hidden. Riggs and Murtaugh knew that they couldn’t let this go unpunished, and they resolved to bring Ku and his gang to justice.

However, their investigation took an unexpected turn when they found out that one of the captives was Leo’s nephew. Riggs and Murtaugh shared the news with Leo, but instead of breaking down, Leo becomes determined to help take down Ku and rescue his nephew.

Riggs and Murtaugh continued their search, gathering evidence that would link Ku to the slave trade. As they worked, they discovered that Ku’s activities were not limited to Los Angeles. He had connections across the country, and his operations stretched as far as China.

The detectives realized that they needed more resources to take down Ku. They coordinated with the FBI and the Chinese government, who sought to bring down Ku for his crimes abroad. With the combined efforts of the agencies, they were able to arrest Ku and his associates before they could flee the country.

Ku was sentenced to life imprisonment, and his operations were shut down. Leo’s nephew was among the rescued captives, and he was reunited with his family. The detectives were relieved that justice had been served, but they knew that the scars of the slave trade would take time to heal.

As they left the shipping yard, Riggs and Murtaugh reconcile their differences and acknowledge the importance of friendship and trust in their line of work. The experience had profoundly affected them, and they realized that their job was not only to serve and protect but to make a difference in the world.

Chapter 3:

As Riggs, Murtaugh, and Leo Getz continue to investigate the case against Wah Sing Ku, they become increasingly aware of how dangerous their foe truly is. Ku’s involvement in the slave trade alone is enough to send shockwaves through the city of Los Angeles, but the detectives are not deterred. They are determined to bring Ku and his gang to justice, no matter what the cost.

Late one night, the three detectives are on a stakeout outside a warehouse suspected to be part of Ku’s operation. As they wait in their car, they notice a suspicious vehicle pull up and park across the street. It’s a black SUV with tinted windows and no license plates. The detectives exchange worried glances and prepare for the worst.

Suddenly, the warehouse doors open, and a group of men carrying crates exit the building. The men load the crates into the SUV and drive off into the night. Riggs, Murtaugh, and Leo decide to follow the vehicle and see where it leads.

As they drive through the city, the detectives stay a safe distance behind the SUV. They watch as the vehicle makes several turns and eventually pulls into a dark alley. Riggs pulls over to the side of the road and tells Murtaugh and Leo to stay put. He steps out of the car and slowly approaches the SUV.

Riggs peeks inside the tinted windows and sees several men sitting in the back seat. They are all wearing suits and sunglasses, and they appear to be armed. Riggs takes a deep breath and prepares to confront them.

Suddenly, the SUV’s doors open, and the men step out, pointing guns at Riggs. He raises his hands and backs away slowly, but before he can react, Murtaugh and Leo jump out of their own car and join the fray.

A gunfight ensues, with bullets flying in all directions. Riggs takes cover behind a nearby dumpster, while Murtaugh and Leo exchange fire with the gunmen. One of the thugs is hit in the shoulder and drops his weapon, but the rest of them continue to advance.

Riggs sees an opportunity and charges towards the SUV. He leaps onto the hood and shatters the windshield with his elbow. The driver swerves wildly, trying to shake Riggs loose, but the detective holds on for dear life.

Murtaugh and Leo hear the commotion and rush to assist Riggs. They take out the remaining gunmen and help Riggs subdue the driver. The SUV screeches to a halt, and the detectives apprehend the suspects.

As they search the vehicle, they find several crates filled with counterfeit currency and several individuals meant for slave trade. They also uncover evidence linking the suspects to Wah Sing Ku.

Riggs, Murtaugh, and Leo return to the precinct and begin to process the evidence. They feel a sense of accomplishment but know that the fight is far from over. They also know that Ku will likely retaliate against them at any moment.

As they wrap up for the night, Riggs can’t help but feel a sense of unease. He knows that they are all in danger, and he wonders if they will make it out of the case alive. Nonetheless, he is determined to see it through, no matter what the cost.

Chapter 4: Doubts and Determination

The case against Wah Sing Ku is gaining momentum, but Riggs can’t shake off the feeling that his age is starting to catch up with him. His joints ache, and he’s lost some of his edge. While he’s still a formidable opponent, he’s beginning to doubt his ability to keep up with the younger detectives on the team.

Murtaugh notices Riggs’ doubts and tries to reassure him. “Hey, Riggs, don’t worry about it. You’re still one of the best damn cops I know. We’ve been through everything together, and we’ll get through this too.”

Riggs nods, but the doubts linger. He can’t help but feel like he’s slowing the team down. Meanwhile, Leo Getz has been tirelessly working on gathering evidence against Ku, and he’s stumbled upon a key piece of information: Ku’s right-hand man has a gambling addiction and frequently visits a particular casino.

Butters, the smart-aleck rookie cop, suggests that they should tail the right-hand man and see if he leads them to any further evidence. Riggs and Murtaugh agree, and they head to the casino to stake out the area.

Riggs sits in the car, his mind wandering. He remembers the good old days when he was young and invincible. But now, as age creeps up on him, he’s starting to feel like he’s expendable.

He snaps out of it when Murtaugh taps his shoulder. “Hey, Riggs, wake up. He’s here.”

The right-hand man, a muscular and intimidating man in his thirties, walks into the casino and begins to gamble. Riggs watches him closely, trying to figure out his next move. Suddenly, he notices something odd: the man keeps glancing at the casino’s security cameras.

Riggs alerts the team, and they realize that the right-hand man is trying to signal someone through the cameras. They follow him as he leaves the casino and tries to escape, but he’s too quick for them.

The team regroups and decides that they need to ramp up their investigation. Butters suggests that they go undercover and infiltrate Ku’s gang from the inside. Riggs scoffs at the idea: “You want to go undercover? Look at you, Butters. No one’s going to believe you’re a criminal. You couldn’t even grow a proper mustache.”

Butters is undeterred. “Hey, I may look like a kid, but I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve. I can do this.”

Riggs rolls his eyes, but Murtaugh nods in agreement. “He’s right, Riggs. It’s worth a shot. We need all the help we can get.”

Riggs reluctantly agrees, and the team starts to prepare for the undercover operation. They’ll need a convincing backstory, fake IDs, and plenty of luck.

As they work on their plans, Riggs can’t shake off the feeling that he’s not as sharp as he used to be. He remembers a time when he could take down a dozen men without breaking a sweat, but now he’s struggling with basic tasks.

But he’s not ready to give up. He’ll do whatever it takes to bring Ku to justice, even if it means putting his own life on the line. He’s determined to prove that he’s still a valuable member of the team, no matter how old he may be.

As they prepare for the next phase of the operation, Riggs feels a renewed sense of purpose. He’s going to give it his all, and he’s not going to let his doubts get in the way. With Murtaugh, Leo, and Butters by his side, he’s ready to take on whatever challenges come their way.

Chapter 5: The Ambush

Riggs and Leo were tied to chairs in a dimly lit room, surrounded by Ku’s men. Riggs’ head throbbed from the blows he had received during the struggle, and he fought to stay conscious. Leo, on the other hand, seemed calm, almost amused by the situation.

“You know, I’ve been kidnapped so many times, I think I have a loyalty card,” Leo quipped, earning a fierce glare from the thugs.

Riggs tried to focus his thoughts, to come up with a plan, but his mind was foggy. He knew he was in trouble. He had never felt so powerless before.

Ku entered the room, flanked by his right-hand man and a couple of enforcers. He walked up to Riggs and grabbed him by the hair, forcing him to look up.

“You should have stayed out of our business, Detective,” Ku sneered. “Now, you’re going to tell us everything you know, or your friend here will pay the price.”

Leo raised an eyebrow, looking unimpressed. “Oh, I’m the leverage? That’s creative. What are you going to do, tickle me?”

Ku turned to one of his men and nodded. The thug approached Leo and pulled out a knife, pressing it against his throat.

Leo’s smile faded, and his eyes widened in fear. Riggs struggled against his restraints, but his efforts were futile.

“Stop!” he shouted. “Don’t hurt him!”

Ku chuckled. “Looks like I found your weak spot, Detective. Now, tell me what I want to know.”

Riggs gritted his teeth. He couldn’t betray his team, couldn’t let Ku win. But Leo’s life was on the line.

“Okay, okay,” he said, his voice low. “I’ll tell you what you want to know.”

Ku leaned in, a smug grin on his face. “Good. Start talking.”

Riggs took a deep breath, trying to stall for time. “But first, I want to make a deal.”

Ku raised an eyebrow. “A deal? What kind of deal?”

Riggs glanced at Leo, then back at Ku. “Let him go, and I’ll tell you everything you want to know.”

Ku laughed, a cold, humorless sound. “You’re in no position to bargain, Detective. But…I’ll humor you. Release him.”

The thug lowered his knife, and Leo was untied and pushed towards the door. As he passed Riggs, he leaned in and whispered, “Don’t worry about me. Get out of here and take down these bastards.”

Riggs nodded, a lump forming in his throat. He had to get out of there, had to warn Murtaugh and Butters. But first, he had to buy some time.

“All right,” he said, his voice steady. “Here’s what I know.”

He proceeded to tell Ku everything he had learned about the counterfeit currency, the slave trade, and Ku’s connections to the Chinese government. As he spoke, he watched Ku’s face, looking for any signs of weakness.

But Ku was too smart for that. He listened carefully, nodding occasionally, but never revealing his true thoughts. When Riggs finished, Ku smiled.

“Very good, Detective. You’ve been quite helpful. But I’m afraid I can’t let you leave.”

The door burst open, and Murtaugh and Butters rushed in, guns blazing. The room erupted in chaos as the detectives fought off Ku’s men. Riggs struggled to free himself, using his chair as a weapon.

Leo, who had been hiding behind the door, jumped out and tackled one of the enforcers. The two grappled on the ground, rolling around and exchanging blows.

Riggs finally managed to break free, grabbing a gun from one of the fallen thugs. He aimed at Ku, who was retreating towards the back door.

“Not so fast,” Riggs growled.

Ku smirked. “You can’t kill me, Detective. My people will find you, and they will make you pay.”

Riggs hesitated, his finger on the trigger. He knew Ku was right, that this wasn’t over yet. But he couldn’t let him escape, either. He had to take a chance.

He fired.

Ku fell to the ground, dead.

The room fell silent, except for the sound of gasping breaths and groaning bodies. Riggs lowered his gun, feeling a mix of relief and dread.

“We did it,” Murtaugh said, clapping him on the back. “We took down Ku.”

Butters looked around, then raised his hand. “Uh, guys? What about me?”

They all turned to see him, still tied to his chair.

“Oops,” Leo said, grinning. “Guess we forgot about you.”

They rushed to untie Butters, laughing and shaking their heads. For a moment, they were just four guys, caught up in the absurdity of the situation.

But Riggs knew it wouldn’t last. There would be consequences, fallout, repercussions. It was never that easy. But for now, he was just happy to be alive, to be with his partners, to have a chance to make a difference.

“Let’s go home,” he said, slinging his arm around Murtaugh’s shoulders. “I’m ready for a beer.”

As they walked out of the room, Riggs glanced back at Ku’s lifeless body. He couldn’t help but wonder what might have been, if things had gone differently. But he knew there was no point dwelling on it.

They had a job to do, a city to protect, a legacy to leave behind.

And damn it, they were going to do it right.

Chapter 6:

Riggs was tied to a chair, his head heavy and throbbing. He couldn’t remember how long he had been captive, but his body was aching, and his throat was dry. The last thing he remembered was the sound of Leo’s scream as he was taken down by Ku’s men.

Ku stood in front of him, a smirk playing across his lips. “You have valuable information, Detective Riggs,” he said, his voice low and menacing. “Information that could save your partner’s life.”

Riggs gritted his teeth, refusing to give Ku the satisfaction of seeing him scared. “You won’t get away with this,” he growled, struggling against his restraints.

Ku chuckled. “I already have, Detective. My men have taken care of your partner. Now, tell me what I want to know.”

Riggs stayed silent, his mind racing. He knew he couldn’t give in to Ku’s demands, but he also couldn’t let Leo suffer because of him.

Ku raised an eyebrow. “I see. You’re a stubborn one, Detective. I like that.” He leaned in closer, his breath hot on Riggs’ face. “But you leave me with no choice.”

One of Ku’s men grabbed Riggs by the hair and pulled his head back. Ku held up a small knife, tracing the blade along Riggs’ cheek. “I could kill you now, Detective. Or I could make you suffer until you beg for mercy.”

Riggs clenched his jaw, bracing himself for the pain. But instead, Ku made a small cut on Riggs’ cheek, causing him to flinch. “That’s just a taste, Detective. I could do much worse.”

Riggs glared at Ku, his anger rising. “You’ll never get away with this, you son of a bitch.”

Ku chuckled. “You’re a brave man, Detective. But bravery can only get you so far.”

Just then, the door burst open, and Murtaugh and Butters stormed into the room, guns blazing. Ku’s men scrambled for cover, and Ku himself tried to make a run for it.

Riggs was still tied up, but he managed to wiggle the chair towards the door. Murtaugh and Butters took down Ku’s men one by one, and Riggs used the chair to knock out two more.

Finally, they were alone in the room, Ku nowhere in sight. Murtaugh rushed to Riggs’ side, untying him from the chair. “You okay, partner?” he asked, concern etched on his face.

Riggs nodded, feeling grateful for Murtaugh’s unwavering loyalty. “I’m fine. But we have to find Ku before he slips away.”

Butters chimed in. “I saw him head towards the helipad on the roof. We have to move fast.”

The trio sprinted towards the roof, their guns at the ready. They burst through the door and saw Ku standing next to a helicopter, the engine roaring to life.

Riggs took aim and fired, but he was too late. The helicopter lifted off the ground, and Ku disappeared into the night sky.

Murtaugh swore under his breath, his frustration evident. “Damn it, Riggs. We were so close.”

But Riggs wasn’t giving up yet. “He can’t have gone far. Let’s use the choppers on the roof and track him down.”

The detectives split up, each taking a helicopter and scouring the city for any sign of Ku. Riggs felt a surge of adrenaline, determined to catch the man who had almost killed him and his partner.

As he flew over the city, he saw a flash of red and gold out of the corner of his eye. He banked hard to the left, his heart racing. It was Ku’s helicopter, and it was heading towards the shoreline.

Riggs landed on a nearby beach and sprinted towards the water, his gun drawn. He saw Ku and his remaining men loading up a speedboat, ready to make a break for it.

Riggs fired a warning shot, and Ku turned to face him, a look of surprise on his face. “You’re too late, Detective,” he sneered. “I have what I came for.”

But Riggs wasn’t listening. He fired another shot, this time hitting the boat’s engine. The boat sputtered and stalled, and Ku and his men were stuck.

Riggs grinned, feeling a sense of satisfaction. “Looks like you’re not going anywhere, Ku.”

Ku glared at him, his eyes full of hatred. “You may have won this battle, Detective. But the war is far from over.”

Riggs shrugged. “We’ll see about that.”

As he apprehended Ku and turned him over to the authorities, Riggs couldn’t help but reflect on the events of the past few days. He had been through hell, but he had also proven himself capable of taking down one of the most dangerous criminals in the city.

And he knew that as long as he had Murtaugh and Butters by his side, he could take on anything that came his way.

Chapter 7: The Final Battle

The detectives, Riggs and Murtaugh, along with their team, continued to gather intelligence on Wah Sing Ku’s operation. With Leo Getz by their side, they mapped out a final attack on Ku’s gang. They discovered that Ku had set up his main base of operations on a cargo ship, which he used to move his counterfeit currency and human trafficking victims.

As they planned their assault, Riggs began to feel the weight of his age and doubts about his ability to keep up with the younger detectives. He confided in Murtaugh about his concerns, but his partner reassured him that he was still a valuable asset to the team.

On the day of the attack, the team moved in and launched a surprise assault on the ship. Explosions rocked the air as the detectives blew open the doors and entered the ship, guns blazing.

Ku’s henchmen were no match for the seasoned detectives and their team. Butters, who had been a smart-aleck rookie cop when he first joined the team, was now a confident and capable detective who proved his worth in the line of fire. Leo, who had always been a bumbling but endearing character, also surprised everyone with his bravery and quick thinking.

Riggs, who had been feeling doubtful about his abilities, found renewed purpose in the fight. He moved through the ship with the agility of a much younger man, taking down henchmen left and right. Murtaugh, his partner, fought fiercely by his side.

As they made their way through the ship, they came across Ku himself. The two sides clashed in a thrilling showdown, with explosions and gunfire ringing out all around them. In the midst of the chaos, Ku managed to grab Riggs and held him at gunpoint.

Murtaugh, seeing his partner in danger, raised his gun and aimed at Ku. But before he could pull the trigger, Leo tackled him from behind, causing him to miss his shot.

Ku took advantage of the distraction and fired at Murtaugh, hitting him in the shoulder. Riggs, who had managed to break free, turned and fired at Ku, taking him down.

With Ku’s gang defeated, the detectives tended to Murtaugh’s wound and helped him to safety. They looked out over the water at the setting sun and reflected on their careers and the sacrifices they had made to bring justice to Los Angeles.

The case may have been closed, but Riggs and Murtaugh’s partnership would live on forever. They had faced down countless dangers together, and they knew that they could always count on each other in the future.

Chapter 8: The Final Battle

The sound of gunfire echoed through the cargo hold as Riggs and Murtaugh fought off Wah Sing Ku’s men. Bullets whizzed past their heads, and they took cover behind crates and cargo containers.

Murtaugh’s heart was pounding in his chest as he fired his weapon at the approaching enemies. He knew that the fight was far from over, but he had faith in his partner and their team.

“Riggs, you okay?” Murtaugh shouted over the sound of the gunfire.

“I’m still here, Murtaugh,” Riggs replied, his voice strained. “But we need to take out those guys on that catwalk.”

Murtaugh nodded, and the two detectives moved cautiously to avoid being caught in the crossfire. They made their way to a stack of crates that provided cover from the gunfire.

As they were catching their breath, Butters appeared from behind a large crate, panting heavily.

“I got separated from Leo,” Butters said. “Did you guys see him?”

“He’s probably still on the other side of the ship,” Murtaugh replied. “We need to keep moving forward.”

Riggs nodded in agreement, and the three detectives moved out from behind the crates. They made their way down the center aisle, dodging bullets and returning fire.

Suddenly, a group of Ku’s men appeared from the side, trapping the detectives between two groups of enemies.

“We’re surrounded!” Butters yelled.

Riggs gritted his teeth and took aim. “Not for long.”

He fired his weapon at the group of enemies on the right, while Murtaugh and Butters targeted the ones on the left.

The firefight lasted only a few minutes, but it felt like an eternity. The detectives were running low on ammunition, and their bodies were beginning to ache from the constant movement.

But they refused to give up.

Finally, they reached the base of the catwalk. Riggs took a deep breath and started to climb up the ladder, with Murtaugh and Butters following closely behind.

As they approached the top, they saw Leo tied up and gagged, with Ku standing beside him, holding a gun to his head.

“You’re too late, detectives,” Ku said with a smug smile. “Your friend here is going to die.”

Riggs felt a surge of anger and desperation. He had to save Leo.

He lunged forward, grabbing Ku’s arm and twisting it, causing him to drop the gun. Murtaugh and Butters moved in, disarming the rest of Ku’s men and securing the area.

Riggs untied Leo, and the five of them made their way to the front of the ship, where they saw Ku escaping on a speedboat.

“We can still catch him!” Riggs shouted.

The detectives ran to the edge of the ship just as Ku’s boat was pulling away. Riggs took out his gun and fired a shot that hit the motor, causing the boat to stall.

Ku looked back in shock as the detectives closed in on him. He knew that he was cornered.

In a flurry of action, Riggs jumped onto the speedboat, knocking Ku into the water. Murtaugh, Leo, and Butters pulled up in another boat, and Riggs climbed aboard, holding his handcuffs.

The four detectives looked down at Ku, who was treading water, a look of defeat on his face.

“You’re under arrest, Ku,” Riggs said, his voice steady despite his exhaustion. “You’re going to pay for what you’ve done.”

As they sailed back to shore, a feeling of relief washed over the detectives. They had accomplished their mission, and justice had been served.

But they also knew that it had come at a great cost. They had risked their lives, and Leo had been injured.

As they docked the boat, Riggs and Murtaugh looked at each other, their faces etched with exhaustion and determination.

“We did it, partner,” Murtaugh said, clapping Riggs on the back. “We took down Wah Sing Ku.”

Riggs nodded, feeling a sense of accomplishment and pride. But he also knew that there would always be another fight to be won, another criminal to take down.

For Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh, the fight for justice would never be over. But they also knew that they would face it together, as partners and friends.

Chapter 9:

The sun was setting over Los Angeles, casting a golden glow over the city as Riggs and Murtaugh sat on the hood of their car, overlooking the skyline. They had just closed the case against Wah Sing Ku, and it felt like a weight had lifted from their shoulders.

“You know, partner,” Murtaugh said, taking a sip from his coffee cup, “I never thought we’d make it this far. I mean, four movies? Who would’ve thought?”

Riggs chuckled. “Yeah, we’re a couple of survivors, ain’t we?”

They sat in companionable silence for a few moments, watching the city go about its business. Riggs felt a sense of peace settle over him, something he hadn’t felt in a long time. For so long, he’d been driven by a need for vengeance, a need to avenge his wife’s death. But now, he felt like he could let go of that anger, that he could finally move on.

“I was thinking,” he said, breaking the silence. “Do you ever wonder what’s next for us? I mean, we’re not getting any younger, Murtaugh.”

Murtaugh snorted. “Speak for yourself, Riggs. I’m still in my prime.”

Riggs smiled. “Yeah, you keep telling yourself that. But seriously, what’s next? Retirement? Becoming private eyes? Maybe we could buy a boat and sail around the world.”

Murtaugh looked at him thoughtfully. “You know, I’ve been thinking about that too. Maybe we should take a break, you know? Enjoy life a little. We’ve earned it.”

Riggs nodded. “Yeah, maybe we have. But you know us, Murtaugh. We can never stay out of trouble for too long.”

Murtaugh smiled. “That’s true. Trouble always seems to find us, doesn’t it?”

They lapsed back into silence, the sounds of the city filling the air. Riggs felt a sense of contentment settle over him, a feeling he hadn’t experienced in years. For so long, his life had been defined by violence and death, but now, he felt like he could finally move on. He had found a new purpose in life, one that didn’t involve avenging his wife’s death.

“You know what, partner?” he said, breaking the silence. “I’m glad we did this. I’m glad we took down Wah Sing Ku.”

Murtaugh nodded. “Me too. But you know what I’m really glad about?”

“What’s that?”

“That we did it together. That we had each other’s backs. That’s what it’s all about, Riggs. Partnerships like ours don’t come around too often.”

Riggs looked at him, a lump forming in his throat. “Yeah, you’re right. I couldn’t have done it without you, Murtaugh. You’re the best damn partner a guy could ask for.”

Murtaugh grinned. “Damn straight. And don’t you forget it.”

They sat in silence for a few moments, the sounds of the city filling the air. Riggs felt a sense of peace settle over him, a feeling he hadn’t experienced in years. For so long, his life had been defined by violence and death, but now, he felt like he could finally move on. He had found a new purpose in life, one that didn’t involve avenging his wife’s death.

And suddenly, Murtaugh’s phone rang, jolting them both out of their reverie. Murtaugh answered it, his face growing serious.

“What is it?” Riggs asked, his senses on high alert.

“It’s Butters,” Murtaugh said, his voice tense. “He’s been shot.”

Riggs felt a cold fury rise within him. Butters was one of their own, and nobody messed with their own.

“Where is he?” he asked, already getting to his feet.

“At the hospital,” Murtaugh said, getting to his feet as well. “Come on, let’s go.”

They raced to the hospital, their car weaving in and out of traffic. Riggs felt like he was on autopilot, his mind focused solely on Butters and getting to him in time. They pulled into the parking lot and raced into the hospital, their badges flashing as they demanded to be let into the operating room.

Inside, they found Butters lying on a gurney, his face pale and his eyes closed. Riggs felt his heart sink at the sight of him, and he felt an overwhelming sense of guilt. If they hadn’t taken down Wah Sing Ku, none of this would have happened.

But he pushed those thoughts aside, focusing on the task at hand. He spoke with the doctors, demanding to know Butters’ condition.

“He’s stable,” one of the doctors said. “But he’s not out of the woods yet. He took a bullet to the chest, and we’re doing everything we can to keep him alive.”

Riggs nodded, his mind racing with anger and frustration. He felt like they were fighting a losing battle, that no matter how hard they tried, they would always be outnumbered and outgunned.

But then Murtaugh put a hand on his shoulder, and Riggs felt a sense of calm wash over him. He looked at his partner, seeing the determination and strength in his eyes.

“We’ll get through this, Riggs,” Murtaugh said. “We always do. We’re a team, remember?”

Riggs nodded, feeling like a weight had been lifted from his shoulders. They were a team, he and Murtaugh. And together, they could overcome anything.

They stayed by Butters’ side the entire night, keeping a watchful eye on him as he fought for his life. And as the sun rose over Los Angeles, Riggs felt a sense of hope and determination rise within him. They may have closed the case against Wah Sing Ku, but their work was far from over. The city was still a dangerous place, and there were still people out there who needed their help.

But he knew that with Murtaugh by his side, he could take on anyone and anything. They were Riggs and Murtaugh, the LAPD’s finest, and they were just getting started.

Some scenes from the movie Lethal Weapon 4 written by A.I.

Scene 1


– Martin Riggs: veteran detective, known for his reckless behavior and unorthodox methods. Still coming to terms with the loss of his wife.

– Roger Murtaugh: Riggs’ partner, older and wiser, but still not immune to the dangers of the job.

– Leo Getz: fast-talking private investigator, always looking for a way to make a quick buck.

– Lee Butters: rookie cop, eager to prove himself to his older colleagues.

– Wah Sing Ku: ruthless mob boss, involved in counterfeit currency and slave trade.

Setting: Los Angeles


[Riggs and Murtaugh are in their car, driving towards a stakeout location]

Riggs: “You know what I hate more than counterfeit money, Murtaugh?”

Murtaugh: “What’s that, Riggs?”

Riggs: “Slavery. It’s like we’re living in the damn Wild West.”

Murtaugh: “Yeah, well at least we get to wear badges and carry guns. Speaking of which, you sure you’re not getting too old for this?”

Riggs: “Nah, I still got a few tricks up my sleeve. Besides, I’m not ready to give up chasing bad guys just yet.”

[The radio crackles with a call from dispatch]

Dispatch: “Possible lead on a counterfeit money operation. The address is 3428 West 6th Street.”

Murtaugh: “Looks like we’re on to something. You ready, partner?”

[Riggs grins]

Riggs: “Let’s do this.”

Scene 1: Riggs and Murtaugh Stakeout

[Riggs and Murtaugh park their car across the street from a rundown warehouse. Leo Getz approaches them, puffing on a cigar]

Leo: “Well, well, well. Look who’s gracing us with their presence. The dynamic duo.”

Riggs: “Cut the crap, Leo. What do you have for us?”

Leo: “Inside that warehouse is the counterfeit printing press for the biggest operation in the state. You’re welcome.”

Murtaugh: “How do you know this?”

Leo: “I have my sources. You know that. And for a little extra cash, I can make sure that you get all the credit in the bust.”

Riggs: “We’ll take care of the bust. You just stay out of our way.”

Leo: “Fine, fine. But you owe me one. And don’t forget about the little finders fee, huh?”

[Riggs and Murtaugh exit the car and approach the warehouse. As they’re about to enter, they hear footsteps approaching from behind. Lee Butters appears, wearing a bulletproof vest]

Butters: “Hey guys, I heard you could use another set of eyes. Mind if I join the party?”

Murtaugh: “Not at all, kid. Just keep your head down and your gun ready.”

[Riggs kicks open the door to the warehouse, and the detectives charge in, guns drawn. They find themselves face to face with a group of armed thugs, who open fire. Chaos ensues as Riggs and Murtaugh dodge bullets and return fire. The scene ends with the detectives taking cover behind a stack of boxes, reloading their guns]

Riggs: “You all right, Murtaugh?”

Murtaugh: “Never better. You?”

Riggs: “Just getting started.”

Los Angeles, California, a shipping yard.


Riggs and Murtaugh covertly make their way through the shipping yard, keeping an eye out for any suspicious activity.


(to Riggs)

You sure about this lead, Riggs? It’s pretty thin.



Trust me, Murtaugh. This is where the action is.

Suddenly, they spot several large shipping containers with locked doors. They quietly approach one of them and listen intently.



…move these crates to the truck. We need to get them to Ku’s warehouse before sunset.



Sounds like they’re transporting something illegal.



Let’s crack open these containers and find out.

They quickly pry open the door to one of the containers and shine a flashlight inside. Their faces are full of shock and horror as they see dozens of human trafficking victims crammed into the small space.



We need to shut down this operation and arrest Ku.



But how do we do that? He’s too well-connected.

Suddenly, a gun cocks behind them. Leo, who had been trailing them, appears from the shadows with his own weapon drawn.



Hey, fellas. What have we got here?



Looks like we’ve got ourselves a new partner in crime-fighting. Let’s do this.

As they prepare to take down Ku’s operation, the group knows they’re in for a dangerous and thrilling ride.

Scene 3



Riggs, Murtaugh, and Leo hide behind crates, guns at the ready. They hear footsteps approaching. Suddenly, a group of armed men rush in and open fire. The three detectives return fire, taking cover behind the crates.

Riggs: (SHOUTING) We need to find another way out of here!

Murtaugh: (SHOUTING) On it, Riggs!

Leo: (SHOUTING) I’ll cover you guys!

Riggs and Murtaugh split up and head in opposite directions, taking out any goons in their way. Riggs reaches a dead end and turns back, only to find himself surrounded.

Ku: (CHUCKLING) You should have left when you had the chance, Detective.

Riggs: (GRIMACING) You’re going down, Ku.

Ku: (SMIRKING) We’ll see about that.

The goons drag Riggs away as Leo and Murtaugh struggle to fight their way to him. The scene fades to black.


Scene 4



Riggs and Murtaugh are sitting at their desks, going over the evidence they’ve collected on Wah Sing Ku. Leo enters the room, chewing on a toothpick.


What’s the good word, fellas?


We got enough to take down Ku and his operation, but we need to move fast.


We can’t let him slip through our fingers again.


Well, I know a guy who can help us out.


Who’s that?


A hacker named “The Ghost.” He owes me a favor.


Sounds risky, Leo.


Trust me, he’s the best in the business. He’ll get us the info we need.


Alright, let’s do it. Butters, you’re with us.


Yes, sir!



Riggs, Murtaugh, Leo, and Butters meet The Ghost, a young man in a hoodie hunched over a laptop.


(whispering to the team)

He’s legit. Trust me.


What do you need?


We need you to hack into Ku’s system and get us everything you can find.


Piece of cake.

The Ghost types furiously on his laptop, pulling up schematics and blueprints of Ku’s operation.



That’s it. Keep going.

Suddenly, the screen goes black.




What happened?


I’ve been traced. They’re onto us.


We gotta go!

The team makes a run for it, just as Ku’s men burst into the warehouse. They narrowly escape, but The Ghost is left behind.



He knew the risks.



We’ll make sure his death doesn’t go in vain. Let’s take down Ku.


Scene 5



Riggs, Murtaugh, and Butters move through the shipyard stealthily, their guns drawn. They keep close to the shadows, but they know they can’t stay hidden forever.


(to Butters)

You sure you know where they’re holding Leo?



Yeah, I got the intel from one of my sources. He’s on the other side of this container.

Riggs motions for them to stop. He peeks around the corner and sees two of Ku’s men guarding a container door. He turns back to his partners.



We need to take those guys out quietly. Butters, you take the one on the left. Murtaugh, you take the one on the right. I’ll cover you.

Butters and Murtaugh nod, and they move into position. Butters creeps up behind the guard on the left, and pulls him into a chokehold. The guard struggles, but Butters holds tight until he passes out.

Murtaugh moves in on the right guard, but he creaks the metal floor causing him to step backward and hit the container door, so the guard puts his hand on his gun. Riggs quickly steps forward and takes the guard out with a swift punch to the face.


(shaking his hand)

Alright, let’s get Leo out of there.

They open the container door and find Leo tied up, blindfolded, and beaten. They free him and help him up.



Oh, thank God you guys found me. I was starting to lose hope.


(patting Leo’s back)

Don’t worry, Leo. We’ve got your back.

They hear footsteps approaching and quickly hide behind some containers. Ku and his men emerge from the shadows, guns drawn.



You fools think you can stop me? I have men all over this shipyard. You’re dead, Riggs!

Riggs steps out from behind the container, gun raised.



It ends here, Ku. Surrender now and we won’t have to hurt you.

Ku laughs and takes aim.



You’re the one who’s going to surrender, Riggs.

The two sides stand off, guns at the ready.


Scene 6



Riggs is tied to a chair, his face battered and bruised. Ku looms over him, brandishing a knife.



Where are your friends, Detective Riggs?



Probably out having a good time without me.

Ku glares at Riggs, then begins to slice away at his shirt. Riggs grits his teeth in pain.



I’m going to enjoy this, Detective.

Just then, the door bursts open. In walk Murtaugh, Butters, and Leo, guns drawn.



Let him go, Ku.



You’re outnumbered, Detectives. Surrender now, or face the consequences.

Suddenly, Leo tosses a grenade towards Ku. It explodes in a spectacular burst of flames, causing chaos in the room. The detectives take advantage of the confusion and start shooting.

Riggs breaks free from his bindings and joins the fray. They quickly dispatch Ku’s men one by one.

Ku attempts to escape through a back door, but is confronted by Butters.



It’s over, Ku. Give up.

Ku, realizing he’s outmatched, surrenders and puts his hands up.



Fine. You win.

The detectives arrest Ku and begin to search for evidence.


(to Riggs)

You okay, partner?



I’ll live.

They exchange grins, relieved to have come out alive.


Scene 7



Detectives Riggs, Murtaugh, Butters and Getz stand outside a dingy warehouse. The neon sign above reads ‘Ku Enterprises’.


(to Riggs)

“You sure about this, partner?”



“Never been more sure in my life.”



“Uh, guys? We need to move.”



“Let’s do this! Leo Getz is ready for action!”

The detectives burst into the warehouse, guns drawn. They are immediately met with gunfire from Ku’s men.

A fierce gun battle ensues. The detectives take cover behind crates and return fire. Leo, surprisingly, proves to be an expert marksman, taking down several of Ku’s men.

Riggs and Murtaugh crawl towards a stairwell as more gunmen close in on them.



“Too old for this…”

Riggs makes a move to distract the gunmen, allowing Murtaugh to take them out.



“Hey, Ku! You’re going down!”

Suddenly, Ku appears at the top of the stairwell, flanked by his remaining henchmen.



“You’re too late, Detectives. My operation is already in full swing.”

He gestures to a large shipment of counterfeit money and human trafficking victims in the corner.



“Oh my God…”



“We’re taking you down, Ku.”

Ku chuckles, pulling out a grenade from his pocket.



“Let’s see you try.”

The detectives dive for cover as the grenade explodes, sending debris flying everywhere.

As the smoke clears, Riggs and Ku emerge from the rubble, both badly injured.


(struggling to stand)

“You won’t stop me…”

Riggs points his gun at Ku, ready to finish him off.



“This ends now.”
