a great movie, not a high quality movie, but quality time watching it
11 October 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Although it it not a very good movie according to critics, which I totally understand, it is a great movie because of the fact that you do not have to think about it. I could just sit back and enjoy the movie. Eddy Murphy is again very funny. That Bogomil and Taggart from the first two parts were not in this movie was a pity, but with Judge Reinhold it was still the same feeling as with the first two parts. The theme park where most of the movie takes place looks very realistic, and also the damage that is done to it is huge. In short this film is not a high quality movie, but a very nice film to sit back, relax and enjoy the humor and action. Only pity is that the dutch rental DVD is missing out a scene. I remember once seen the movie on TV that there was a scene on the balcony, after Axel joined Ellis De Wald on the stage where he got his price for man of the year. There was a fight, before Axel was arrested, but this scene was not on the DVD. For the rest there is only an interview with the actors on the DVD, but this is very entertaining.
