Beverly Hills Cop II Reviews
Se nota que Tony Scott entró en la dirección ya solo por su fotografía y sus escenas de acción, aunque si es cierto que el final no es tan épico como el de la primera parte.
Otro gran clásico ochentero.
(Full review coming soon)
Axel Folely is back in Detroit. When he's not working undercover, he's busy pissing off his superiors as usual, but also still retains contacts with the police friends he made back in Beverly Hills.
Meanwhile, in Beverly Hills, a series of robberies are taking place by a group of people led by a person dubbed the "Alphabet Bandit." When Axel's Beverly Hills friend, Bogomil is trying to investigate this spree of crimes, he is gunned down by people working for the bandit and is hospitalized.
Upon hearing this news, Axel travels back to Beverly Hills to help out Rosewood and Taggart (His other cop friends he made in the first film) by investigating this series of crimes, even though the chief expressly forbid them from doing so. Now the trio must figure out who is behind these crimes and take them down, while getting into a series of hilarious shenanigans along the way.
The story isn't as polished as the first film's and is riddled with plot holes and bizarre moments. Still, it's the characters that make this film what it is, regardless of the all the plot holes. All the characters you know and love from the previous film are back. I also loved all the ridiculous scenarios the film played out because they were always funny and action-packed.
The acting is pretty good across the board. Once again, much like the original film, Eddie Murphy steals the show as Axel Folely (Oh, Eddie Murphy, what happened to the days of great comedies?). Even with a number of other talented actors around him, he steals the limelight, but he's what you watch a Beverly Hills Cop film for and I'm perfectly okay with that.
The humor of course, is absolutely hilarious. I laughed loudly and constantly, much like the original film. I didn't feel that there was a single weak joke to be found in this film and that's something I expect from this sort of film. It's an absolute blast that almost had me rolling on the floor with laughter.
Plus, the action sequences are also stellar. There's car chases, gun battles, explosions, heist sequences, and more. I was thrilled from beginning to end and I had an absolute blast with this film.
Beverly Hills Cop II is a very underrated sequel. It's hilarious, action-packed, and a hell of a good time for anyone who enjoys a good comedy or action flick as it packs the goods in spades. It's not as polished as the original film, but it works damn well as a worthy successor to the classic original. Give it a chance.
