Can't keep God waiting.
I don't want to hear that kind of talk, Sergeant.
Oh come on, Andy! He's fired every cop who used to work for the old chief! The three of us is all that's left!
He's still head of this department, Sergeant.

Beverly Hills Cop 2 is pretty much just the same as the original Beverly Hills Cop but without the freshness and originality of the 1st. Murphy is still a perfect Axel Foley and with some good supporting characters such as his foul mouthed chief of police and Detectives Rosewood and Taggart the movie does have it's moments but the rules of diminishing returns still apply.
With a bit more originality in the script and a bit more daring this really could have been great. But for a sequel this isn't to bad just more of the same but not quite as good.
6/10 - Not as good as the original but far superior to the tepid third instalment.
