Murphy exudes the kind of cheeky, cocky charm that has been missing from the screen since Cagney was a pup, snarling his way out of the ghetto. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Away from Murphy's iconic comic status and star quality at the time, he was a limited dramatic actor - making almost untenable the tauter moments of the plot. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- By no means great cinema... but it is a great popcorn movie. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Eddie Murphy looks like the latest victim of the Star Magic Syndrome, in which it is assumed that a movie will be a hit simply because it stars an enormously talented person. Full Review

This lickety-split action comedy is distinguished by the wry, character-conscious direction of Martin Brest, who coaxes a silver-bullet performance from star Eddie Murphy that's practically criminal in its accuracy. Full Review

It's one of the few star comedies of the early 80s to allot some humor and personality to the minor characters. Full Review

Martin Brest's brash fish-out-of-water comedy is the ideal showcase for Murphy's hip, lightning-quick genius. -- Grade: B

Product Description:

Eddie Murphy rose to stardom as Axel Foley, a streetwise and brash young Detroit cop in this comic blockbuster that combined frenetic action, hysterical rough-edged comedy, and a chart-topping rock & roll soundtrack. When his best friend is murdered, Axel heads off to Beverly Hills in an effort to track down the killer. The resulting culture shock is only one of his difficulties: Often operating just outside the law in his determination to capture the murderer, he finds himself repeatedly clashing with the local authorities as well as his supervisor back home. With the help of Beverly Hills detective Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) and his partner, Sergeant Taggart (John Ashton), Axel is able to track down the killer, who turns out to be Victor Maitland (Steven Berkoff), a wealthy, powerful, and respected member of the California community. It is up to Axel to outsmart the evil British criminal, who is protected inside his fortresslike mansion. Featuring hysterical supporting performances from Bronson Pinchot as Serge--an effeminate, thickly accented art gallery clerk--and comedian Damon Wayans, among others, the film is one of the funniest comedies of the 1980s.

Plot Synopsis:

After a friend of his is murdered, a big city cop from the east travels to Beverly Hills, California, to hunt down the killer; the cop's streetwise approach gets surprising results.

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: December 5, 1984.
  • The film grossed more than $230 million at the box office.
  • Director's cameo: Martin Brest appears as a hotel checkout clerk.
  • Sylvester Stallone was originally targeted for the role of Axel Foley. When he failed to show interest in the project, the producers cast young Eddie Murphy in the part. This choice, of course, changed the emphasis of the film from action to comedy, and the role consolidated Murphy's status as a superstar.
