An obnoxious sequel with no charm
3 August 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

'Beverly Hills Cop II' is an utterly obnoxious movie that epitomises the worst aspects of flashy '80s action and serves only as a monument to Bruckheimer and Simpson's lack of interest in anything besides cars, guns, tits and swearing.

Sandwiched between the enjoyable original and the weak third movie, not only is this sequel soulless, abrasive and boring, it's also entirely lacking in laughs. Eddie Murphy's Axel Foley comes off as a rude, selfish jerk this time round, and it's the fatal flaw of the movie that none of his cocky blather is remotely inventive. He just talks and talks and talks and talks and talks.

Meanwhile the overly complicated plot relies on moronic coincidence to drag itself from one empty set piece to another, and the gaps in logic are filled with unmemorable pop songs, orange filters, Harold Faltermeyer's keyboard/electric guitar/bin lid/biscuit tin score, shoulder pads, bright red lipstick and big sunglasses. Trash.
