The third entry in the popular Beverly Hills Cop series finds Detroit cop Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy) returning yet again to Southern California, this time on the trail of two car thieves turned murderers. As he teams up again with L.A. cop Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold), Foley's investigation leads him to Wonder World, a theme park that is also the front for a major counterfeiting ring. More action and less wit are the trademarks of this film, which features Murphy dishing out his usual

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Landis relies on routine action -- and cameos by such noted filmmakers as George Lucas, John Singleton, Martha Coolidge and others -- to hide the fact that there's no engine under his movie's hood.
The mix of violence and laughs never gels, the rejoinders are snapless, the pace slack.
The movie... isn't nearly as fresh as the first Cop flick was. But I must admit that it's a whole lot more enjoyable than the contemptible crashathon known as Beverly Hills Cop II.
Eddie Murphy needs to shoot off his mouth. It's his best weapon, and the one that's unique to his arsenal. When a movie mostly requires him to shoot off a gun he becomes just another action star, and another talent wasted in lazily miscalculated material.
Steven E. de Souza's script has Foley following a trail of murder and deception into an L. A. amusement park called WonderWorld. The director, John Landis, fails to exploit the possibilities.
Looks like it's time for Axel Foley to hang up his Detroit Lions jacket and retire his badge and gun.
Murphy's trademark delivery is still impudently subversive, but it's too often wasted on unworthy opponents.
The movie is like an advertisement for the 19 recently banned assault weapons.
Beverly Hills Cop III -- a movie trying to exploit what's left of a 10-year-old idea -- has some nerve satirizing Disney World's money-grubbing commercialism.
If Murphy looks bored by the whole thing, that fine character actor Hector Elizondo adds some genuine quirkiness.
A wrong-headed, too-formulaic revisiting of the once-entertaining franchise.
Time to go back and stay on the East coast.
