Where's Jerry Bruckhimer when you need him?
15 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
