The heat is on in this fast-paced action-comedy starring Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley, a street-smart Detroit cop tracking down his best friend's killer in Beverly Hills. Axel quickly learns that his wild style doesn't fit in with the Beverly Hills Police Department, which assigns two officers (Judge Reinhold and John Ashton) to make sure things don't get out of hand. Dragging the stuffy detectives along for the ride, Axel smashes through a huge culture clash in his hilarious, high-speed pursuit of justice. (Paramount Home Entertainment)

English I hadn't seen the movie in a long time, and I certainly didn't remember it being this good. Eddie Murphy's loquaciousness and some of the gunfights aside, Beverly Hills Cop is exceptional mostly because of the characters and how they gradually grow closer. Of course, that's to be expected, but it's still a joy to see how, thanks to Foley's vivaciousness, all those initially uptight cops slowly melt away and start to have fun until they're downright enjoying themselves by the end.

English Eddie Murphy is the only thing worth paying attention to, without him, it's just an average and ordinary-looking action B-movie with zero ambitions. But Murphy's verbosity and a ton of gags (though sometimes awkward) at least make the film somewhat decent, with a screenplay as naïve as the rest of the cast. The nostalgia of the 80s is pleasant even today. Axel Foley is undoubtedly one of the best roles in Murphy's not particularly likeable and stunning career, but for those who don't appreciate his mild sarcasm, contagious laughter, and a million words, I recommend switching the channel.

English I'm catching up on my backlog, and as it turns out, this film is part of it. I probably caught glimpses of this action comedy on TV now and then, but I didn't watch the whole thing, and it didn't leave much of an impression on me. Now I've finally seen the whole film and I have to admit it's pretty good in places and Eddie carries it well, but I didn't see much else in it. Except for that great melody that everyone knows thanks to the frog. ()
