Beverly Hills Cop III Reviews

August 16, 2017
A dismal third outing for Eddie Murphy as Detroit cop Axel Foley.

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.

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.

Beverly Hills Cop III is resoundingly joyless.
