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.

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

Looks like it's time for Axel Foley to hang up his Detroit Lions jacket and retire his badge and gun.

Really quite awful.

Murphy's trademark delivery is still impudently subversive, but it's too often wasted on unworthy opponents.

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

Beverly Hills Cop III is resoundingly joyless.
May 2, 2014
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 movie is like an advertisement for the 19 recently banned assault weapons.

The mix of violence and laughs never gels, the rejoinders are snapless, the pace slack.

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.

BHCIII features one great stunt but a dearth of laughs.

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.
May 2, 2014
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.

A wrong-headed, too-formulaic revisiting of the once-entertaining franchise.
