Another great quote about Lethal Weapon 4

“(In Lethal Weapon 4) Jet Li is offered to us simultaneously as dynamic spectacle – “How the hell did he do that?” marvels Mel Gibson’s Riggs after he dismantles a gun at lightning speed – and inscrutable Other, garotting old men and kicking pregnant women. Such spectacle, as Marchetti argues, pulls in two directions: ‘It both attracts and repulses, encouraging viewer identification while keeping that involvement at a distance.’ ” Leon Hunt, Kung Fu Cult Masters, p. 158

A blog about Jet Li in Lethal Weapon 4 is to follow soon.
