Trivia

Pay attention to Axel as he is leaving his apartment during the opening credits. As he closes the door, you can see the initials "AF" scratched into the door. They're (obviously) the initials for "Axel Foley". See more »

Goofs

The Captain gets chewed out by the Police Chief for involving the FBI in solving "The Alphabet Crimes." But the Diamond Store robbery is the "A" crime; i.e. the first and only Crime. How does anyone know (at this point in the movie) that there are going to be further "Alphabet Crimes"? See more »

Better than a lot of people say
18 November 2001 | by (Leicester, England) – See all my reviews

Sequel to the hugely successful 1984 movies, this film was most unfairly slated by critics. I believe in some ways it is better than the original and certainly far, far better than the third installment. The story is, despite what everyone says, very engaging and keeps you watching the whole time. Eddie Murphy starred in Coming to America shortly after this, and then his career took a nosedive, although he seems to be making a comeback. If he is given more roles like this, he'll do better.
