Beverly Hills Cop III
In for the ride of his life!
Detroit cop Axel Foley is back in sunny Southern California in the third installment of the comedic fish-out-of-water Beverly Hills Cop series. On the trail of two murderers, Axel again teams up with Los Angeles cop Billy Rosewood. Soon, they discover that an amusement park is being used as a front for a massive counterfeiting ring -- and it's run by the same gang that shot Billy's boss.
Not really a bad film, but not really a good one either. The best description I can muster is; it started, it played out and it ended.
It was like an old friend calling round, but he's not in the mood to tell you his usual amusing anecdotes and when you offer him a cup of tea, he says he doesn't like to cause a fuss and leaves.
Without any merit, laugh free...soul less. Dated far more than the other 2 despite coming out years later!
This time I think it's Eddie Murphy who watches it every night before he cries himself to sleep.
Había pasado una década desde la original y ni su estrella ni Landis pasaban por su mejor momento. De hecho, no volverían a tener uno como el de años atrás. Vista ahora, no es el asqueroso subproducto que recordaba, pero sigue siendo una mala película y peor secuela. Puede que lo más destacado sea la presencia de George Lucas sin papada.
"Is this the illegal chop shop, where they chop all them cars up? I wanna chop my wife's Buick, 'cause the bitch ain't been acting right." - Axel Foley.
I may have been underrating this one on my first viewing. To me, this was a very ballsey film to make. To create a sequel in the '90's to a film set in the '80's that uses that period to generate most of it's humor is a weird move, but it works rather well. Well directed action and much funnier on this viewing (the opening with the mechanics singing The Supremes is so Landis), Beverly Hills Cop has just become one of my favourite trilogies.
This third entry in the Beverly Hills Cop series is an absolute stinker of a movie. Unfortunately there is no Bogomil or Taggart in this, and, even worse, it contains next to no laughs and some pretty poor action too. Utterly terrible.
If you do watch it, keep an eye out for the George Lucas cameo.
The worst thing about movie is that it is a part three and it is inconsistent with its predecessors. Taken for what it is, I think it is an enjoyable action comedy mostly set in an amusement park. Except for all the gun violence and some language, it is almost family film level action and comedy. Yeah, pretty tame this time, but at least that's consistent throughout the movie. There were a lot of recognizable character actors and cameos (mostly film directors - a little distracting).
Unfortunately it moves into B-movie territory with its faults: boring exposition dialogue (explaining where Taggart is), 90's style remixes of Axel F, many unfunny attempts at comedy, not enough locations, and not enough of…
I thought the plot was atrocious and very forgettable. It just seems like another sequel that had hardly effort put into at all.
This movie isn't that good. It has very few John Landis moments, just not enough. Damn, Eddie Murphy sure has been terrible for quite a long time now.
Apparently Eddie Murphy decided he needed to be serious instead of funny in this movie. He fails at both.
Not as bad as I remembered but also not very good. Doesn't come close to matching the original two films. It's not very funny and the action is pretty weak.
I'd like to say John Landis had a hand in making this film as bad as it was as he was at a low point in his career here but I really can't. The sole reason this film doesn't work is Eddie Murphy who for some reason forgot how to be funny when the 80's ended.
A shame this film is up to nothing but hey, at least it's still better than Metro...
I remembered not liking this film when I saw it back when it came out, but I thought maybe I had been too harsh on it. I hadn't. This third installment should never have been made. Nobody in the entire movie seemed to want to be a part of it, most of all Eddie Murphy. And Judge Reinhold is reduced to a parody of his lovely character. Not funny once and really poorly executed.
This has to be in the running for the laziest, most uninspired sequels of all-time. Eddie Murphy sleepwalks through this generic action thriller, which simply recycles the basic framework and cliches from the previous two films in hopes that fans suffer from memory loss. The shootouts, chases, and fights in this are so clumsily constructed it's sad more than painful. Judge Reinhold is underused, Hector Elizondo is a poor substitute for John Ashton, and Bronson Pinchot returns with a ridiculously awful (and convenient) change to his character. You get the sense that Murphy didn't care anymore, that he was going through the motions for a check. Why anyone would be pining for a 4th installment is beyond me. What is…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Murphy didn’t get along with director John Landis on COMING TO AMERICA, and famously stated that Landis had a better chance of working again with Vic Morrow than he did Murphy. But plunging box office appeal has a habit of making one eat crow, and so here we have BEVERLY HILLS COP III, which isn’t as funny as the first film or as action-packed as the second. Only Reinhold (and Bronson Pinchot in an embarrassing calculated cameo) return, and the chemistry that Murphy shared with the casts of those movies is sorely missed.
