During the opening credits, Axel Foley begins driving a Ferrari 328GTS with the targa top removed. When he pulls into the alley, the car is a Ferrari 308GTS with the targa top in place. The car remains a 308 in all of the high-performance shots on the streets of Detroit. When he pulls up to the bar where he offers to buy 2000 American Express cards, the car is again a Ferrari 328GTS, except the targa top is now in place. See more »

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.
