After the murder of his childhood friend in front of his eyes, the slick Detroit detective, Axel Foley, heads to sunny Beverly Hills, on a one-man mission to ferret out the killer and bring him to justice. Before long, Axel and his unorthodox methods unearth the lucrative drug operation of the powerful local crime kingpin, Victor Maitland; however, Foley, too, will find himself in deep trouble, as Lieutenant Andrew Bogomil wants him out of town. Now, Axel will have to team up with Detectives, John Taggart, and Billy Rosewood, to shed light on the thick conspiracy, and finish what he has started. Will Foley's total disregard for proper procedure bear fruit? —Nick Riganas
Just as fun and sparkling as the first time I saw it
I hadn't seen this movie in a few years, but I can for sure say it's just as enjoyable and funny now. Such a great cast. Eddie Murphy was born to play the colombo from Detroit, and his lady friend is adorable! Fantastic soundtrack as well. Not much else to say; it's a fun, smart, glamorous movie with that 80's charm we all love and miss.
