Beverly Hills Cop opening with certain charms
24 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

Opening of Kane is not similar, it is exact clone of the Beverly Hills Cop Axel's friend being shot while playing some pool. The rest of the movie has certain 80's lightness and certain charm.

Parker Kane is very likable and there was potential for making a certain Hooperman with the edge series out of this pilot. Main villain is very prolific and some direction is not that bad considering its genre limitations.

Style and mood also made somewhat cartoonish atmosphere from beginning to end. Still kept this movie in well preserved mercy of VHS tape. Wouldn't mind having DVD release either. There are certain films like this, where judging criteria comes from the lighter side, mainly because of the certain charm I've already mentioned.
