Beverly Hills Cop II
1987
Detroit cop Axel Foley returns to the land of sunshine and palm trees to find out who shot police captain Andrew Bogomil. Thanks to a couple of old friends, Axel's investigation uncovers a series of robberies masterminded by a heartless kingpin.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

Standard sequel here: Bigger budget, fewer creative risks taken, more of the same scenes from the first movie. It's still fun, but not the breakthrough that its predecessor was. I could have done with fewer scenes of Eddie Murphy bullshitting his way into someplace he doesn't belong, which is fine but seemed to take up half the movie. Flashes of Tony Scott's later over-the-top directing style were neat to see.
