always a classic,
This review is from: Beverly Hills Cop [DVD]  (DVD)
23 years ago this film was released and eddie murphy became an actor worth his salary,whatever he touched turned to gold,well for a few years anyway,the 90s werent so kind to him and since then his films have been good and very bad but this was the 80s and eddie murphy ruled them and beverly hills cop remains as iconic of thaty era as any film you care to mention.
The tale revolves around a cop called axel foley played by eddie who visits beverly hills when a friend of his is killed in detroit where foley lives and his friend had connections down there.
The film has a good feel to it,witty dialouge,memorable scenes and some good violence make sure that this film ticks most of the boxes that you may measure it against.
It is simply a good film,the same can be said of the second movie,but the third film in the series was a load of ....,and signalled the start of a somewhat lean spell for murphy.
