Beverly Hills Cop II Reviews
(Full review coming soon)
I thought that this film contains some great action scenes. I was not a fan of the look as far as how it was shot to look so dark and yellow.
I felt like the music and the songs were not as great as the first film.
This film in my opinion does have better villains than the first film that are much more threatening and starts off by shooting the chief was a very big deal in this film. However the fact that the temporary replacement for the department chief carries such low regards for their the police officers to only be working traffic duty and limits their abilities so much it makes this film a little less interesting in some ways because now the cops are all sneaking around rather than doing their duty which sends the wrong message.
I did like that we got to see more into the friends Axel hangs out with in Detroit in this film compared to the other Beverly Hills Cop films. I also enjoyed seeing the under cover car in Detroit was a red Ferrari.
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.
Axel Foley is back in Beverly Hills to solve the case of The Alphabet Bandit, who sends police forces tricky codes to solve and who has shot Beverly Hills Police Sgt. Bogomil. Axel is back in action with Billy Rosewood and Taggert.
The first film in the series struggled with a compelling story to mix with action sequences, with bland characters and an even more bland story. The second one made sure that was solved, the characters are noticably more likable and have more personality. The story is also a big improvement but is less realistic. The sense that the first film was more of an inside job like setting and the sequel is an out and about car chase extravaganza appeals more to viewers. Cons include still little to no personality to the antagonists except that they're rich and have henchmen, it's a common cliche that continues 30 years later. It's a rare occasion where the sequel is better than the original, but even this is flawed.
