Product Description

Amazon.ca

The 1988 sequel to one of the most successful movies of all time finds Eddie Murphy reprising his role as Detroit police detective Axel Foley, and once again playing a fish out of water as he tries to solve a series of heists in Beverly Hills that may be connected to the attempted murder of his friend, a Beverly Hills police captain (Ronny Cox). Constructed in a much flashier and faster-paced visual style than the first film, the song still remains the same as Foley tries to keep his job in Detroit while solving crimes for the Beverly Hills cops. Murphy again makes the most of culture shock for comic effect, and the easy rapport between Murphy and Billy (Judge Reinhold), now a cheerfully over the top Rambo-esque figure, is still the centerpiece of this series. While not the least bit original, director Tony Scott (Crimson Tide, Top Gun) puts his own stamp on this installment and keeps the action and the laughs coming. --Robert Lane

After the gargantuan success of "Beverly Hills Cop" it was inevitable that the executives at Paramount demand a sequel. So here you have it: "Beverly Hills Cop II," an unquestionably inferior sequel that still manages to be fun by rehashing some of the original's formula. The main problem with "Beverly Hills Cop II" is the fact that Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) is now friendly with at least half of the Beverly Hills police force. Not so the case the first time around, since it was the very fact that he was unwelcome to begin with that made his tearing up of the culture the crucial crux of the comedy. Another weakness is the fact that this film's script places more focus on the action than it does on the laughs. This was a mistake for sure, since the comedy element is the original's greatest strength, as well as that of the cast. All is not lost however. This movie still manages to pull off some very funny gags thanks to the energy and timing of Murphy (still in his heyday) and of co-stars John Ashton and Judge Reinhold as the loveable Taggart and Rosewood. It is clear that the actors are enjoying these characters and it shows in their scenes together. There is a priceless moment at the Playboy Mansion featuring a cameo from Hefner himself. Interestingly enough, according to an included interview with Hef, this was the first time that he allowed a major motion picture to be shot on the infamous property. Most of the cast and crew are also interviewed as they look back on the making of what ended up being another major hit for Paramount in 1987.

Detriot cop Axel Foley returns to Beverly Hills to once again show "square" cops Rosewood and Taggert how real police work is done. This time, they're after a group of bank robbers known as "The Alphabet Bandits" who are responsible for shooting their boss. While this one is more dedicated to action than comedy (thanks to Top Gun director Tony Scott), Murphy is still in rare comedic form and manages to keep this sequel from being a waste of time. Too bad the same can't be said for the third entry in the "Beverly Hills Cop" franchise. Number two is a bit of a rehash but seeing all the characters from the fist go-around (with the exception of Bronson Pinchot and Lisa Eilbacher) back in action makes it excuseable.

Another first for the comedy-crime drama genre for sure. This one has more comedy and action than the first one. The story sort of suffers from repitition though with Axel Foley going to Beverly Hills to solve a crime. Here's a lowdown of the story Andy Bogimil (Ronny Cox) is gunned down by two men and a 6foot blonde women. Axel hears about it on the news and goes to Beverly Hills. Once again Axel is aided by Billy and Taggert (played by the same characters in the first film) and solves the crime with a bunch of laughs along the way. It's a comical thrill ride that doesn't miss a beat!

the first beverly hills cop movie was a classic, the second one however isn't quite as great. this movie does pack it's fair share of laughs and action but it seems to not have the same style as the first one as well as not having a fresh storyline. it seems to start in the same way as bhc 1, with one of axel's friends getting either hurt or killed and then axel goes to beverly hills to find the killer. after a while though you forgot about the revenger part and get caught up in a whole new storyline and the movie gets better but still doesn't live up to the original.

IN THIS REALLY NEEDLESS SEQUEL, MURPHY RETURNS TO LA TO HELP SOLVE AN ALPHABET CRIME WAVE. NOW, REALLY, THIS SEQUEL WAS NOT NEEDED, THEY COULD'VE LEFT THINGS THE WAY THEY WERE AND NOT DO THIS SEQUEL. THIS SEQUEL SUFFERS FROM A BAD PLOT. ALTHOUGH THERE IS POINTLESS MOMENTS IN THIS ONE, MURPHY REALLY HELPS TO SAVE THIS ONE FROM BEING A DISASTER IN A REALLY BIG WAY. OH, AND LOOK FOR APPEARNCES BY GILBERT GOTTFRIED AND A YOUNGER CHRIS ROCK. IF YOU'RE A DIE HARD FAN OF THE ORIGINAL, GO HEAD AND BUY THIS ONE. BUT IF YOU'RE NOT A DIE HARD FAN, JUST RENT THIS ONE.

BEVERLY HILLS COP was a smash hit that improved upona film genre, the action/comedy. So, it would inevitably sprout a sequel. Sadly, it had none of the charm or intelligence of its predecessor. Instead we are given an extremely plotty, artsy action film with no laughs. This film has more in common with James Bond than Axel Foley with its high-tech thieves, gorgeous women and moody filming. Much of this has to do with the poor script and the films director, TOP GUN's Tony Scott. And what worked in TOP GUN doesn't neccesarily work here.
The storyline has Murphy again leave Detroit to help solve a murder attempt of his BEVERLY HILLS COP friend, Captain Bogomil (Ronny Cox). He again teams with Taggart and Rosewood, but their characters have groan... errr... grown. Taggart now carries a "my wife is leaving me' subplot that is very tiresome and Rosewood has grown into a weapon happy Rambo wanna-be. None of this adds up to much other than a very slick, expensive sequel. Director Scott admits he is not a comedy director and it shows. He cut it all out.
Perhaps as a nod to Sylvester Stallone (who was cast and replaced in the original film), Sly shows up in not one but two movie posters and his then wife Brigette Nielsen portrays the villains Amazonian henchwoman. Watch for a young Chris Rock as a valet at the Hugh Hefner mansion where you will see one of the most exploitive scenes in the past 30 years.
This DVD is part of a new Special Edition release of the "COP" trilogy and has a nice audio/video transfer. Its supplemental features include a half hour cast and crew interview and some music videos. Followed up by another sub-standard sequel.
