When cop Axel Foley's California buddy Mikey Tandino is murdered on his surprise visit to Foley's hometown of Detroit, Axel takes it upon himself to follow Mikey's murderer, Zack, back to Beverly Hills. Meanwhile Beverly Hills Lieutenant Bogomil assigns detective Rosewood
Director Tony Scott's "Beverly Hills Cop 2" is a fun, funny, fast paced action comedy.
"The Heat's Back On!"
|The basic story involves some big time robbers
knocking over stores in Beverly Hills. Once again a Detroit cop,
Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy), must help out the locals with the case.
The city of Beverly Hills is being terrorized by the so-called
Alphabet Bandit, Maxwell Dent (Jürgen Prochnow) who leaves
a cryptic coded letter using the alphabet, after his well - trained
band, led by a very tall blond woman, Karla Fry (Brigitte Nielsen),
swarm various businesses / places, and take what they want with
a three minute time limit.
The letter supposedly gave clues as to where the next robbery will be, and who was behind it. Head Cop Andrew Bogamille, (Ronny Cox), now an old friend of Axel's, is gunned down & seriously wounded, because he found out some clues. Axel comes back "deep, deep undercover" to help officer Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold) and John Taggart (John Ashton), do a covert investigation to find the Alphabet Bandit and his gang of bad guys and bad gal, hopefully without being fired by their respective chiefs. Axel's Police Chief, Inspector Todd (Gilbert Hill) thinks Axel is undercover, pursuing his credit card bust, and Reinhold and Ashton were assigned to traffic duty, one step from losing their jobs, due to their new, verbally abusive Chief of Police, Harold Lutz (Allen Garfield), just looking for an excuse to fire them.
A favorite action scene is the opening 3 minute
robbery of the jewelry store. Another is the attempted robbery
of the Bank Depository, that is foiled by our three favorite cops
on the case.
One favorite, humorous scene takes place between Nielsen and Murphy. As she shoots at a firing range, Murphy checks out her long beautiful legs. With strictly professional interest, Murphy inquires, "How long does it take to shave those legs?
Another great, great scene is with comedian Gilbert
Gottfied as the accountant, Sidney Bernstein, which is a perfectly
directed, written and acted scene.
