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

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.

If Murphy looks bored by the whole thing, that fine character actor Hector Elizondo adds some genuine quirkiness.

Truly abysmal and half-hearted attempt to keep this particular cash-boat afloat. Where's the John Landis I remember?

The movie is like an advertisement for the 19 recently banned assault weapons.

The beginning of the end of Murphy's career

Murphy once swore never to make another Beverly Hills Cop movie and never to work with John Landis again. He should have kept both promises.

BHCIII features one great stunt but a dearth of laughs.

[A] goofy vanity project.
May 12, 2001
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.

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.

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.
May 2, 2014
The mix of violence and laughs never gels, the rejoinders are snapless, the pace slack.

Viewers, at least critical ones, would probably be happy to know that there aren't any plans for Beverly Hills Cop IV.
