Axle Foley, while investigating a car theft ring, comes across something much bigger than that: the same men who shot his boss are running a counterfeit money ring out of a theme park in Los Angeles. Written by

When Foley fires his gun in the park he says, "I'll put my gun down. I put it down on the ground and I'm unarmed." But later in the footage of him on the TV he says, "I'm putting my gun down, I'm putting it down on the ground and I'm not armed." See more »
Achwell, try to say Serge. It's not so difficult. Surge? Sounds like a detergent.

This has to be the worst of the series!! THE WORST!!! The action
sequences are a complete joke, as if it were a parody of itself.With
Beverly Hills Cop 3, it's like the director forgot this wasn't a music
video or a B-Grade horror flick, but an action-comedy....the key word
here is: "action", which means realistic gun battles. See, the first
two films had cleverly placed comedy relief where it was needed, and it
had a very serious gritty side. As far as the dialogue is concerned,
PLEASE DON'T ASK!!!! The only element that was pleasing and resembles
(not quite,though)the hilarity of the first two movies is when Axel and
Rosewood enter a Gun Expo a gaze upon a urban assault weapon with a
CD-player and a microwave and the moment when Axel disrupts a speech by
Ellis DeWald (the bad guy who killed his boss). THAT'S IT! Of all the
people in Hollywood with professional experience to direct a decent
action film, and BHC III picks John Landis. Why? And what in the bloody
blue hell was he on while he was directing this insult to modern
cinema. At least the "Batman" franchise was good through the third
movie! What's the deal with this movie being a goddamn amusement park.
If it is in Disneyland-type park then make it a "Die Hard"/Lethal
Weapon-type of fare at least.
Almost everything and I mean EVERYTHING is a discouraging mockery to
the series even the car chase at the beginning was complete and total
joke. Why couldn't the producers and director stick to terrorists and
political assassins and have it end in the classic all-American,
white-knuckle, sweaty-armpit inducing style of shootout/bloodbath in
the amusement park. "Hey Landis! Stick to directing cheesy-ass videos
for billion-dollar diva musicians!! Sadly, I hate myself for saying
this, but as absurd as most of Jerry Bruckhiemer's movies are, this is
the only franchise where his sensationalist fantasy is needed the most.
