The Heat Is On - the gun battle fanatic's dream my personal number 1 favorite Cop action movie

The Heat Is On in the Maitland mansion's grounds one of the best action sequence entertainment and joy able watchable trough in tier film. I love, love , love this film to death. The gun battle on mansion's grounds is one of the reasons to watch this movie. It is Commando and Rambo: First Blood part II two action films in one. Axel (Eddie Murphy), Billy (Judge Reinhold) and Taggart (John Ashton) firing with handguns on Uzi-wielding henchman is the most entertainment trough in tier film. The final showdown between Axel and Zack (Jonathan Banks) is memorable gun shootout my favorite bad-ass scene trough whole film.

I love the rescue operation so it remains an action classic in the gunplay's fanatic dream with substance action and comedy. I love the filming location of Maitland's residence.

Beverly Hills Cop (1984) remains Eddie Murphy's best film and people's favorite film in the series. It is my number 1 favorite Eddie Murphy film and of course remains my number 1 favorite in Beverly Hills Cop trilogy. I enjoy this movie it is my personal favorite action film from Eddie Murphy. This is people's favorite film in the trilogy and Eddie Murphy's best film and I Understand why. This is another childhood classic of mine I grew up watching it, it was the first and only movie I saw as a kid. I didn't know they were three movies at the time , I only thought this is a stand up alone movie I never saw sequels before. This movie has mixed elements with comedy and the same time entertaining action, it has a lot of humor to laugh about. This is one of the decent's 80's action films they don't do movies like this anymore.

Beverly Hills Cop Staring: Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Lisa Eilbacher, Ronny Cox, Steven Berkoff, James Russo, Bronson Pinchot, Paul Reiser, Jonathan Banks and Stephen Elliott and they all do fine job.

Steven Berkoff is the main villain he was also in James Bond 007 - Octopussy and Rambo: First Blood Part II. They guy was born to play bad guys and I enjoy his performance in all three movies. Jonathan Banks was also in Eddie Murphy's first movie 48 Hrs. no Eddie and Jonathan they did not had any screen time in that movie together but 2 years later they reunited and they had screen time in this movie. Lisa Eilbacher as Jenny Summers close childhood friend of Axel was excellent one of her best performance ever she was also in Leviathan (1989) with Peter Weller. I love these trio working together Ronny Cox from RoboCop and Total Recall was excellent I miss the actor so much he was great. John Ashton was excellent and Judge Reinhold was great and decent as Det. Billy Billy Rosewood, he was the only one of the three actors that appear in all three Beverly Hills Cop movies.

Great direction from Martin Brest his best direction debut ever. Great music score from Harold Faltermeyer for Axel F theme. I love the soundtrack: Stir It Up by Patti LaBelle my favorite song of the film. Great opening sequence showing Detroit was excellent great action flick from Paramount.

The first movie of "Beverly Hills Cop" Trilogy remains the best one in the series my personal favorite action film.

Eddie Murphy at the peak of his career

Mega-hit action comedy from Paramount Pictures and producing duo Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer. Eddie Murphy became a genuine superstar with the starring role of Detroit Detective Axel Foley, a rule breaker and wisecracker that travels to Beverly Hills to solve a childhood friend's murder. It puts him at odds with a shady art dealer (Steven Berkoff) and the Beverly Hills police department. But Foley soon proves his mettle out West as he obviously has superior detective skills compared to his rule centric equivalents in Beverly Hills.

There are a lot of laughs here, and Murphy has tons of screen charisma. A lot of this will probably seem routine to modern audiences, but at the time this film established the action-comedy as one of the biggest genres of the decade. It also contains one of the signature 80's soundtracks, both the pop songs (several of which charted) and the score by Harold Faltermeyer, which includes the top ten single "Axel F." Directed by Martin Brest.

What helped make this film so great - the very fact that nobody involved KNEW it was great until it got rave audience reaction, is exactly what killed the sequel. Beverly Hills Cop Two rests too much on the laurels of the original, but then that is another story.

Eddie Murphy at the top of his form... for a formulaic cop movie...

"Beverly Hill's Cop" has all the makings of a classic 80's movie, the charismatic persona of Eddie Murphy, an upbeat and catchy synthesizer's beat and a likability factor that tie up all these elements together, so its iconic status can't be denied regardless of whether you've actually enjoyed it or not. But that doesn't make it immune to fair criticism, is the film a classic? Yes. Is it funny? Now , that's tricky.

We're in 2017, and Martin Brest's film still holds up very well and is considered as one of the most defining comedies of the 80's. I wouldn't say it's one of the funniest and I always felt an affront to comedies that "Ghostbusters" and "Beverly Hill Cops" are listed in AFI's Top 100 Funniest Movies while the laugh-riot of the year "Top Secret!" has been overlooked. No offense to these two classics, but by Bill Murray's own admittance, Ramis' classic leaned toward Sci-fi and special effects at the expenses of comedy during the whole third act, and "Beverly Hills Cops" features a cold-blooded murder at point blank on the head, for Pete's sake. For a comedy, it's quite a heavy movie but there are reasons why "Beverly Hills Cops" is a classic.

The film features Eddie Murphy at the top of his game as a street-smart loudmouthed, foulmouthed Detroit cop, Axel Folley, who investigates (officiously, he's supposed to be in vacation) the murder of his friend, an ex-convict killed by his boss' right-hand man, played by a sinister Jonathan Banks, the bigger bad guy is an art deal but drug smuggler operating in Beverly Hills and played with the faux suaveness of a Bond bad- guy by Steven Berkoff. The comedic moments generally emerge comes from the situations when Folley, discovers the manners of Beverly Hills and the procedural of the Police Deparment. His constant arguments with Taggart (John Ashton) and Bogomil (Ronny Cox) are always entertaining, so is the way Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) is always the only one to empathize with Folley, or find his jokes funny.

But to be honest, the film doesn't hold up to its reputation for one simple reason, it always gets to the obvious. The plot is rather formulaic and consists on a really mean bad guy, not even likable on a vile level, who's confronted by Folley at various circumstances and who could have been easily gotten away if he didn't decide to kidnap his friend at the end, the climax is a banal shootout and doesn't leave much to the imagination. You've got to wonder why it ended up being nominated for Best Original Screenplay, even a moment that could have been the inspiration for a hilarious monologue, when Eddie Murphy checks out at the hotel, turns into a "that's because I'm black" shtick. Just compare that moment to the magnificent hotel lobby room sequence in "This is Spinal Tap" and you'll find the line between good and lazy writing.

That's how the film felt, lazy, obvious and oblivious to its obviousness. I enjoyed it as far I enjoyed Eddie Murphy but if he can make a movie good, he can't carry a plot alone, this is why "Trading Places" and "Coming to America" were better, they had Dan Aykroyd, Don Ameche, Ralph Bellamy, Arsenio Hall, John Amos and James Earl Jones... "Beverly Hills Cop" is the Eddie Murphy show combined with a banal cop flick, it gets slightly better when it evolves toward a triangular buddy movie, so much better that you can even feel some vibes of "Lethal Weapon", a film that doesn't have the pretension to be a comedy, but was as enjoyable and even lighthearted as "Beverly Hill Cop".But after "Lethal Weapon" and the great chemistry between Gibson and Glover, the "Beverly Hills Cop" sequels sucked by comparison.

Maybe the theme of the film contributed to its popularity, now that should have been nominated for an Oscar; not the screenplay. Again, Eddie Murphy is such a great presence I forgive everything but wish there was more part showcasing the differences between the Detroit and the Beverly Hills lifestyle, and more inspired bits than impersonating a homosexual or complaining of black, that felt like old stuff even by 80's standards. The film becomes better once you expect a cop movie, maybe that's how they should have label it. But who'll believe in a dramatic Eddie Murphy anyway?
