Beverly Hills Cop II

Beverly Hills Cop II

Tony Scott (1987)

15 Certificate


Our Score
Eddie Murphy is back and the set pieces are even more spectacular - shame they forgot about the script. This blockbusting sequel replays the plot of the original - Murphy returns to Los Angeles's swankiest suburb, this time to foil a gang of designer robbers who have wounded an old colleague. But wit goes largely by the wayside and Murphy's mugging becomes increasingly irritating. Jürgen Prochnow and Brigitte Nielsen ham it up as the obligatory foreign-accented baddies, but fail to make much impact, and Tony Scott's direction is flashy but superficial.


Wisecracking Detroit detective Axel Foley returns to Los Angeles to investigate the shooting of an old friend, and uncovers a connection with a spate of violent robberies carried out by a criminal who leaves a mysterious calling card. Comedy thriller sequel, with Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Ronny Cox and Brigitte Nielsen.
