All Movie Guide
Following up on the successes of 1982's 48 Hrs. and 1983's Trading Places, Eddie Murphy returned to the screen a year later with Beverly Hills Cop, a rollicking action-comedy that firmly established him as one of the premier stars of the day. Mixing laughs, violence and strip clubs -- a recipe if ever there was one for a guy-movie -- Beverly Hills Cop succeeded to the tune of $316 million worldwide. Though future films would prove him all too fallible, Murphy is unstoppable here as the wise-cracking, fish-out-of-water Detroit cop Axel Foley. Other players add a lot here too, notably Judge Reinhold's dopey tagalong and Bronson Pinchot's cameo as an art gallery host. And talk about hindsight being 20/20: Axel was almost played by Mickey Rourke, then Sylvester Stallone -- both of them only after Clint Eastwood turned down an earlier, more serious conception of the role. It's worth paying attention to Beverly Hills Cop's admirable and strong-selling soundtrack as well -- if "The Heat Is On," "The Neutron Dance" and "Axel F."," the film's synthesizer-heavy theme song, don't bring you back to the mid-eighties, nothing will. The plot is not exactly ground-breaking cinema, and sometimes its violence is a little excessive and conventional. Nevertheless, Beverly Hills Cop is a highly entertaining film that proves there was a darn good reason why Eddie Murphy was once king of the box office.

    The End Was the best

    I thought that the fighting at the end was plain hilarious and the best part of the of whole film. I liked Eddie Murphy in lily-white Beverly Hills.

    An Action Fan.

    This movie is so cool it is almost unbelievable. The action scenes are awesome the music is awesome and Eddie Murphy is awesome. Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy), a Detroit Detective, is sent to Beverly Hills to Kick butt. He was warned by his chief in Detroit to stay out of trouble but still ends up chasing after major crimester Steven Berkoff who killed Foley's friend. An awesome movie.

    One of Eddie Murphy's best movies...

    Beverly Hills Cop is one of those DVD's that you need in your collection. It is filled with great acting, great music, and lots of comedy. This movis is one of Eddie Murphy's best, I think it goes like this: Beverly Hills Cop, Trading Places, 48HRS, in that order. One of his famous lines is ''Trust Me''. If you have not seen this movie, then you do not know what you are missing. Get it and add it to your collection today! - Chad Castorina
