Beverly Hills Cop III Reviews

It's one of the most cynically engineered sequels ever.

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.

The fun of the idea in Cop 3 is the notion of a huge, corny, funny-animal park, with cops and killers running around in the tunnels. But the movie gets drowned in casual brutalism, lazy shtick and telegraphed jokes.

The Eddie Murphy who skulks, swaggers, and -- mostly -- fires guns through Beverly Hills Cop III is like a replicant version of his former self.

The third installment of the Beverly Hills Cop series boasts a return to form by Eddie Murphy and a breezy and witty first half.

There are germs of interest -- America's theme-park culture and obsession with weapons -- but on the whole Landis aims for the obvious.

As surely as if it were a McDonald's or a Burger King, Beverly Hills Cop III is part of a money-making franchise, though this one has been abandoned for so long it has cobwebs on top of cobwebs.

Like most flicks conceived as marketing vehicles, it's hollow at the core.

Whatever juice is left in the Cop franchise or in the once unstoppable career of Eddie Murphy peters out ignominiously in this poor excuse for a sequel.

One wonders where the Eddie Murphy of 48 Hours and Trading Places has gone. The irreverence is still there, but there's no verve or freshness.
