Movie Info

Football hero Boomer Hayes (Ken Wahl) finds he is in the middle of a looting scheme in this non-stop actioner. Billionaire and owner of LA's pro football team, Bat Masterson (Robert Davi), has arranged a fake toxic chemical spill to provide an opportune situation for his group of ex-cops to plunder an evacuated community in Beverly Hills. Surprised by the state of things when he comes out of the bathroom, Boomer soon grasps the opponent's play and takes it upon his able-bodied self to tackle the situation. Luckily, he not only has the support of his girlfriend, Laura (Harley Jane Kozak), but ex-cop and bad-turned-to-good guy Ed (Matt Frewer) also decides to play on the home-team. With a plethora of explosions and stunts, it shows how the heroes semi-effectively defend their lush neighborhood.

Audience Reviews for The Taking of Beverly Hills

The only thing I expected out of this movie was a 1980's style action flick that would just be something to pass the time away.I also never expected to like or even enjoy it but I did.I loved the action, The bits of comedy here & there & as usual, Matt Frewer is always funny.After watching Short Time I'll watch about any movie he's in.You should take a chance on The Taking Of Beverly Hills.Either you'll (Hopefully) enjoy it as much as I did or it'll just be something to watch
