Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

While its sequels were formulaic and safe, the first Beverly Hills Cop set out to explore some uncharted territory and succeeded. A blend of violent action picture and sharp comedy, the film has an excellent director, Martin Brest (Scent of a Woman), who finds some original perspectives on stock scenes (highway chases, police rousts) and hits a gleeful note with Murphy while skewering LA culture. Good support from Judge Reinhold and John Ashton as local cops not used to doing things the Detroit way (Murphy's character hails from the Motor City). Paul Reiser has a funny, brief moment at the beginning and Bronson Pinchot makes an hilarious impression in a great, never-to-be-duplicated scene with the star. --Tom Keogh

This is one of those simple movies that is so deceptively good, you don't realize how good it is. I have probably unintentionally seen this movie 30 times. Every single time it is on TV, I end up stopping whatever it is I was doing and end up watching it to the end, even though I know who the bad guys are and how it ends.
Murphy is Axel Foley, a Detroit police detective. His boss, Inspector Todd, is portrayed by real life Gilbert Hill, a semi-famous police detective in his own right. "Mad About You" creator and star Paul Riser has a small role as Foley's fellow detective. Todd is always threatening Foley with termination due to his costly methods of crime busting.
When his friend Mikey Tandino (James Russo) arrives from Beverly Hills to Detroit to visit with his childhood friend, Foley, Mikey gets murdered. Foley is hit on the head during the hit on his friend, but is otherwise unscathed.
Because of his relationship with Mikey, a guy with a lengthy record of minor petty thefts, Todd assigns another detective to the murder and orders Foley to stay away. Lacking confidence in the skills of the assigned detective, and determined to get justice for his friend, Foley takes a "vacation" and goes to Beverly Hills to see if there is a connection.
The plot is more than just some laughs and gun fire - you truly feel like you are part of Team Foley, investigating the case. Does the murder involve the German Bearer Bonds that Tandino had on him when he was murdered? Is it about U.S. Customs? Is it about cocaine? Is it about expensive art? There are so many different aspects interwoven, a first time viewer is really taken for a ride.
From the get-go, you know who the bad guys are - but will they be caught, and why did they kill Mikey?

4.0 out of 5 stars One Of, if not, Eddie's Best Movies June 10 2004
Format:DVD
I'll skip beating around the bush with another review about the movie and go onto the bonus features...
The bonus features are pretty good, You get the usual 5.1 surround, widescreen ect... I dont consider them a bonus... but you also get a lengthly extra from the cast members, most of the cast is on the interveiws! And its really interesting to find out about the stuff that what could have been the Beverly Hills Cop direction, when you discover it was originaly going to be casting Sly Stallone as the lead! Wonder what would have become of the movie with him as the lead? And also alot of other interesting things about the movie are on there that make it worth purchasing!
The audio commentary does give a few insightfull looks into the film! I had no idea Damon Wayans was in the film!!!! So it's actualy got some interesting things on the commentary!
The other stuff like location talk, or music talk, ect is kinda boring to me, but you might get a kick out of it? But overall, the only thing stopping me from giving this a perfect 5 is that they talked alot about how they had a few deleted scenes, and apparently a very, very large amount of out-takes where the cast and even crew couldnt contain there laughter and where rueining the takes because things where just too funny! And I was hoping to see them... so without Deleted scenes and Out-takes, i rate it just one star lower, it really should have had them... but maybe they dont exsist anymore? I dont know.
Overall, yes, it's a great price for a great movie, and well worth getting to replace your old VHS version!
