Corrected entry: When Riggs is pinned beneath the concrete slab, Murtaugh staggers to his feet. His coat opens, revealing an automatic pistol in a holster. He was always known as a wheel gun guy, so why the automatic? And, if he had it, why didn't he use it to kill the guy in the white pajamas?

Correction: Remember that they had to find new guns because they ran out of ammo during the shootout. He just put away the one that still had ammo.

Corrected entry: Not really a mistake, but perhaps worth a look. In the previous three movies Mel Gibson's character wore his watch on his right hand. In this one he wears his watch on his left.

Correction: Like the submitter says, not a mistake at all.

Corrected entry: In Lethal Weapon 1, Riggs' wife's grave has a very small stone in the ground, but in this one when he leaves his ring, it is a much larger tombstone.

Correction: Gravestones can be upgraded. In the 11 years between the two films, it's possible that Riggs decided to buy a bigger grave marker for his wife. (Particularly if he plans to be buried with her so that his name can be added later.).

Corrected entry: When Riggs and Murtaugh are talking about how much ammo they have, Murtaugh says he has 6. He then shoots 2 and say he has 4 left. Next time Riggs asks Murtaugh says he has 2 left. When Butters is shot, Murtaugh fires 2. So he should have 0 shots left. However he still has one more, because he shoots Wah Sing Ku's brother. So where did the 7th bullet come from?

Correction: Although difficult to see, in some shots Murtaugh is seen using his Smith & Wesson 5906 in addition to his Model 19. In one shot he's seen holding one of the Triad's Makarov PM's which he must've picked up (most notably scene when Butters gets wounded), so that explains why he seems to fire more than six shots.

I'm watching the movie right now. At 01:41:27, you can see he is using his revolver for the "extra" round. IMFDB doesn't even have Murtaugh using the S&W 5906 during the final shootout nor the Makarov, which it looks like he does not pick up until after this scene. The original post is correct.

Continuity mistake: In the scene near the end of the film when Murtaugh shoots at Wah Sing Ku and mistakenly kills the last of the four fathers, you can clearly hear an empty shell casing hit the floor, although he is using a revolver, which do not spit out the empty shells as they are fired.

Trivia: In one of the takes when Riggs and Murtaugh crashed through the window of the office building, one of the window washers was actually hit (from the "making of's"). Obviously the one in the movie was not this take.

Question: Something I really don't understand about the ending. Riggs is looking over his former wife's grave when his beeper tells him that Lorna is expecting their baby. He races to the hospital and there she is about to give birth. So who drove Lorna to the hospital? Can't have been Riggs as he wouldn't have left at a time of need just to see his wife's grave. Doubtful that Lorna drove herself, and no relatives were there (as we see at the end). So what other explanation is there?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: She could have taken a taxi or an ambulance, or even driven herself. A neighbor or friend could have taken her who didn't stay after she was admitted. She might have already been at the hospital for any number of reasons - doctor's appointment, already admitted for bed rest prior to labor, etc. etc. etc.
