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

The Alien Attack ride that Janice (Theresa Randle) demonstrates to Axel when he first comes to Wonderworld is actually the Earthquake section of the Studio Tour at Universal Studios in Hollywood. The alien robots are the Cylons (from TV's Battlestar Galactica (1978)) from a section of the old Universal Tour "Battle Of Galactica" that once inhabited the same sound stage as the Earthquake section of the tour.

On the spider ride, all of the cars are held to the arms by two chains and a cable at the center of the car's roof. When the car that the children are in breaks away, it is shown that the cable breaks, which then causes one of the chains to break. In all subsequent shots, the remaining chain is shown to be attached to the edge of the car's roof, not the center. No other car has such an attachment point. If the remaining chain had been attached to the center, the car would not have tipped as extremely as it did. See more »
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.
