An early draft written by Bud Shrake and Dan Jenkins involved Axel going undercover as a Beverly Hills rent-a-cop who helps Rosewood, Taggart, and Bogamil stop a corrupt security service operated by a Detroit hoodlum turned businessman. The script also called Chief Hubbard from Cop 1 to return and for Axel to have a 20 something female partner/love interest named "Lucy". See more »
When the Cadillac backs up in the driveway to let the armored van pass, it clearly drives off afterward at speed. In the next shot, when Billy hits it with the cement truck, the Cadillac is now stopped side-on in the middle of the road. See more »
This movie gets a lot of bad press and I have no idea why. For me, the BHC concept was in good hands with Tony Scott. From the very first shot, with the thick orange camera filter looking over the oilfields, accompanied by the classic sounds of Harold Faltermeyer, to the final scenes at the same fields, it is a thoroughly entertaining movie as Axel, Billy and Taggart team up to investigate the Aplhabet-murders. If you want, there is much to be said about the execution of the movie, or about the lack of a storyline, but surely, with a cast like Jurgen Prochnow ("Adriano was not perfect"), Brigitte Nielsen depicting the quintessential broadshoulderd eighties woman and the not-a-care-in-the-world humor of Eddy Murphy, who really needs a truly compelling story? There are lots of other movies way better equipped to fulfill that particular need. BHCII isn't one of them, nor does it pretend to be. Judge the movie for what it is, a classic popcorn action comedy, and then you'll see it is actually a fantastic ride.
