at 59:25 Foley, Taggert, and Billy Rosewood break into the Beverly Hills Gun Club and Axel Foley finds a note with the coordinates "LAT 118 degrees 21 mins 510 west LONG 34 degrees 3 minutes 9-10 (presumably a date of Sept 10) 10:30. The meaning of the 510 is unclear and the words LAT and LONG are reversed (longitudinal lines are east and west and the lines run north/south through the earth's poles, and LAT lines are north and south; the run parallel to the earth's equator). These coordinates according to Google Maps are at 1313 North Meadowbrook Avenue in Los Angeles. See more »
When Axel, Rosewood and Taggart are running the matchbox's fingerprint through the computer downtown, it identifies the print as belonging to Cain and prints out his dossier. Taggart takes the printout and read aloud "Charles Cain... used to be Charles Campos". If you look at the dossier carefully, it only identifies him as "Charles Campos" and there is no reference or mention to his alias as "Charles Cain" anywhere on the printout. See more »
I remember waiting in line on May 25, 1987 , opening day, when I was 14 years old eagerly anticipating this movie.
Five minutes into the movie my heart sank. This movie was the ultimate glossy, high-powered empty "comedy/action" film. Even at age 14, I could tell this one stunk. Here were some of the reasons I felt this way.
1. Eddie Murphy is bitter and angry throughout the movie. There is no joy in this performance. He's constantly yelling and screaming at everybody.
Think back to the first movie when he pretended to be gay in order to get into the hotel buffet. He used his wit and intelligence to get himself through the gate. In BVC II he yells and insults everyone who dares to get in his way.
2. When did Axl become fishing buddies with Ronny Cox? 3. The character Billy Rosewood becomes a gun nut for no real reason other than the writers thought it would be a funny direction to take the character.
This movie could have generated a simple laugh by having Axl still driving around in his old blue Chevy Nova. But no, he's only shown driving a Ferrari and BMW(?)convertible.
