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

Product Description

Hilarious comedy of a tough, hard-hitting Detroit street cop who takes matters into his own hands when a murder investigation takes him to the ultra-chic community of Beverly Hills. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Bad Transfer 14 Oct 2011
You probably know the story of Beverly Hills Cop, so you don't need me to tell you what a groundbreaking film this was for Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley - a renegade cop trying to find out who killed his friend in Detroit, which leads him to spend his time out there in Beverly Hills, with Rosewood and Taggart as his pals.

This Blu-Ray is good, with an average of 40Mbit/s AVC video - and the soundtrack comes in 5.1 English, at around 3mbit/s. There's a version in French and Spanish, but sadly it's still 2.0. The scenes look much more brighter with this new transfer - and it is the original, no substitutes for music. There are subtitles in English, French, Spanish and other languages too.

The image is very good, yet it still looks spotty. This is probably the best it will ever look though, and no artefacts anywhere on the film. It does make it look more fluid during chases - especially in Detroit with the big truck.

The extras seem to be the same as 2001's release, which is disappointing, there is no upscale of them either, it's just standard definition. The only decent extras here are "the start of the phenomenon" where the cast and director talk about the film's success and how it could have been a very different picture with Stalone on board. There is also a music documentary, but there is no Harold Faltermeyer, which really defeated the purpose of it. Of course, director Martin Brest describes his arguments with the record company, but otherwise this is a bit of a mess.

Worth a look if you're a big fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Classic on DVD 10 Dec 2002
If you haven't seen Beverly Hills Cop you HAVE to watch it. If, like me, you've always loved the film and seen it plenty of times, make sure you get this DVD. I genuinely forgot quite how good a film this is and laughed harder than I have at a new movie for ages. The extra's are slightly dissapointing compared to some of the double-disc sets available for classic films now but I was happily surprised at quite how long the Cast & Crew Interviews are. The good thing is as well is that all the main characters & crew are interviewed and there's some really interesting information about how another massive 80's action-hero very nearly played Axel Foley !
I loved watching this film again - It's a true joy to experience and if you enjoy action films or comedies then you really should have this in your DVD Movie Collection

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh & funny even after 18 years... 21 Nov 2002
Remember when Jerry Bruckenheimer produced quality movies? Remember his partner Don Simpson? Remember Eddie Murphy back when he was fresh and funny? Remember the Axel F. theme? Remember when Martin Brest did comedies?
Everything you remember is here on this DVD! Don't bother with the sequels or "trilogy" box. This is the one that got started the formula of "wise-cracking" cops (apart from hysterical one-liners-through-squeeezed-teeth by Dirty Harry, who was well ahead of the times) genre that bolstered Die Hard and Lethal Weapon movies. It's a perfect example of "fish-out-of-water" comedy combined with "buddy movie" genre.
Plot in a sentence or two: resolved to find his best friends murderer, Detroit cop Axel Foley follows the trail to L.A. where his "methods" drive baddies and his Beverly Hills "coleagues" crazy.
Enhanced remastered SOUND is excellent, even better than what you saw at the theater all those years ago.
DVD itself: rather entertaining, although "not-so-special" features have mostly CAST & CREW INTERVIEWS, divided in 3 parts (INTERVIEWS, CASTING and MUSIC). It's fun to see how people look and remiscent on those days about 15 years later. Also, there's DIRECTOR'S COMMENTARY and THEATRICAL TRAILER. Pretty standard stuff, as I said.
Why they didn't include outttakes (they all talk how they "burned" a lot of film by laughing in the middle of shooting) or alternate scenes (there were a lot of improvisations on set, as they say) is beyond my comprehension.
Anyway... Buy this and you won't regret it! It's money well spent! You'll laugh yourself to tears, I guarantee it.
Favourite line: "Can you put it in a good spot? All this s**t happened the last time I parked here..."

4.0 out of 5 stars Birth of a genre 4 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This film defined the action/comedy genre for a decade and cemented Murphy's position as the most bankable African-American actor of the eighties.
Watch it now and, though parts will seem dated, you will recognize set pieces that have been used in a thousand films since - and I defy you not to laugh at least once at Murphy at the peak of his powers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest film of the 80's 22 Oct 2004
Brash, crude and very funny. Murphy's third film was phenomenally succesful at the box office, aided by a hit-filled soundtrack. Beverly Hills cop is an entertaining, if empty-headed, cop film in which street-smart detective Murphysets out to avenge the murder of a friend. Basically a star vehicle designed to show off the talents of Murphy- it succeeds admirably. The comedy is deftly balanced with the stunningly staged action scenes. Surprisingly, most of the laughs are given to Reinhold and Ashton. Acting honours go to Bronson Pinchot in a brief but career-making turn.
