BEVERLY HILLS COP III (Released to Theaters USA 1994)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Beverly Hills Cop III— welcome relief due to cleaner comedy—has a 2024 Netflix release titled Beverly Hill Cop: Axel F that follows the series’ story. This movie, overall, is a much better watch for the wider range audience to enjoy.

Axel Foley uncovering a a job gone wrong, loses some friends along the way, and goes to California to find  bigger crime than Axel Foley bargained for. 

Additional Thanks 

Thank you to Director John Landis for directing effort. Thank you to Producers Mace Neufeld and Robert Rehme for making the film possible. Cast includes Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold, Hector Elizondo, and Theresa Randle. 

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. The movie cleans up the ‘on the edge’ comedy that most of this series explicitly flirts with and is much, much improved over the last two movies in the series. It creates an easier viewing experience because there are no ‘surprise’ open nudity scenes displayed that have no relationship to the story and always seem as unnecessary add-ins that subtract and limit the size of audiences who will go to Eddie Murphy movies. This series seems to have run its course (run out of steam) and feels like it’s time to move on, but know Netflix plans to release another sequel to the series, due to be released summer 2024 which may give the series new life.
