This was the blockbuster that propelled Eddie Murphy to superstardom at a time when his brash, confident swagger still appeared fresh and he hadn't descended into caricature. In the first and best of the trilogy, he plays the streetwise Detroit cop who causes a major upset in posh Beverly Hills when he turns up to investigate the murder of an old friend. Director Martin Brest orchestrates the senseless set pieces with slick precision and British actor Steven Berkoff pops up as the villain of the piece.
Fast-talking Detroit cop Axel Foley heads for Los Angeles after an old friend is murdered before his eyes. His search for the killers leads him into conflict with a seemingly untouchable drug kingpin, but he also has to contend with the local force, who do not want him taking matters into his own hands. Comedy thriller, starring Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold, Ronny Cox, John Ashton and Steven Berkoff.
