Beverly Hills Cop II

BB.5

(out of 5)


‘s hit character Axel Foley returns in this less successful sequel. He is once again the wisecracking Los Angeles police detective who is hot on the trail of a woman () who apparently shot his good friend and colleague (). On the trail of the killer he stumbles upon a scheme involving illegally traded weapons and a series of robberies linked to the same villain. Murphy’s energy is just as manic as before, but the screenplay sags under its own cliches and the direction is too heavy handed for comedy.  and  return as the comic sidekicks.
