Blu-ray picture is not bad, its great in places and occasionally the quality goes grainy in places,
No special features.
Region B, Running time 103-mins, 1987.
Multiple language and subtitle options.
The friendship between Foley, Rosewood, Taggart is already formed, so the story and the comedy of the friendship forming is lacking in BHC 2, but that doesn't mean that it isn't as good as the first one.
Eddie Murphy, as per the first one is extremely funny and plays some excellent comedy roles with his made up character such as the hilarious Johnny Wishbone lol.
In the first BHC, Foley wasn't really welcome in Beverly Hills, but in this second one, he's much more welcome and helps Taggart and Rosewood to solve the alphabet crimes.
If you are a fan then I can highly recommend get BHC 2 on Blu Ray, HD is definitely worth it.
Photography/visual style: 6/10
It's easy to forget these days, but there was a time when Eddie Murphy was widely acknowledged as one of the funniest men alive. Beverly Hills Cop II is around the zenith of his power, and also that of director Tony Scott.
Scott was just coming off Top Gun which, like it or not, is one of the most commercially successful films of all time, and thus incredibly influential. With these films, he practically set the template for 80s Hollywood: big, brash action scenes interspersed with big, brash... everything else.
It suits Eddie Murphy perfectly, given that his stage persona is all about being the coolest, biggest personality in the room. Although it presents as a 'fish out of water' story, BHC2 is actually more like the tale of a virus entering a new population that has no immunity to it. Nobody can defend against the motor mouth of Axel, Murphy's character. I sometimes wished someone did in fact, just once, so that he could get out of the situation some other way, but he talked his way out of or into everything perfectly, without fail.
It's an enjoyable romp, with a central trio whose friendship I believed in. Scott's fingerprint is visible in the thrilling car chase sequences and (literally) explosive shoot-outs. There's not much depth to it, but you can get that elsewhere, like in the work of Tony Scott's older brother Ridley. Tony (now sadly deceased) did stylish action thrillers, and he did them damn well.
For my full review, see my independent film blog on blogger, Cinema Inferno: http://cinemainferno-blog.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/beverly-hills-cop-ii-1987.html
The film itself has had a lot of mixed reactions, but in my opinion this sequel is amazingly funny.
