Movie Reviews

A TOTAL WASTE
Inspector Gadget | On the trail of Doctor Claw | 08/06/2000
(1 out of 5 stars)

"And a monumental flop. Beverly Hills Cop 3 spent so much money and delivered practically nothing. We get a flat cinematography (a huge step down after Tony Scott's stylist BHC II), bland production design (in a theme park?) and out of place action on the rides. It should have had a wider screen and more eye-pleasing backgrounds if it wants to look good on screen. But it never happened. The tone is very different to the previous 2 films and has some totally pointless action and a weak plot.

Ronny Cox, John Ashton, Don Simpson, Jerry Bruckhiemer and Harold Faltermyer all bailed out of this film. Surely the director should have seen that as a sign. There isn't even a reason for Ronny Cox not being in this movie. At least they bothered to explain why John Ashton couldn't be bothered showing up (apparently his character retired to Arizona to play golf). Judge Reinhold is wasted and is given NO funny lines. Eddie Murphy acts like he's in a DIE HARD movie and how the other characters can't figure out who the bad guy is just by looking at him is insulting to the audience's attention.

Millions of dollars were spent on this movie that came traipsing in 10 years after the original and 7 years after the sequel. I guess no one cared about Axel Foley anymore. As I have already said...the film bombed big time."
Eddie Murphy's Unsatisfying Turning Point
Justin Heath | Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada | 10/11/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I think "Beverly Hills cop III" was an extremely regrettable turning point in the nice career of one of the most talented and funniest black comedians Hollywood has ever seen - Mr. Eddie Murphy. Before it he used to be funny or at least much funnier. He appeared in the rather enjoyable flicks like "48 Hrs.", "Coming to America", "Another 48 Hrs.", "The Distinguished gentleman", "Boomerang" and of course "Beverly Hills cop I & II" - two beloved movies that will always be his very best works.

Then someone decided to add part three in the so far terrific "Beverly Hills cop" saga. This time Axel Foley was on the mission of revenge and the comedy was unfortunately replaced by action. Who forgot that most of the glamour behind these movies came directly from the humor? Even though John Landis - the man behind hit comedies like "The Blues Brothers" and "Three Amigos!" - sat in the director's chair the end result just wasn't that funny anymore or at least it was funny very rarely and that's a bad thing if we compare part three to its absolutely hilarious precursors. ...and as it happened, after "Beverly Hills cop III" Eddie Murphy got roles from the movies like "Vampire in Brooklyn" (with only couple of excellent scenes), "Metro" (that apparently wasn't supposed to be funny in the first place), "Doctor Dolittle" (cute little film for kiddies who love furry animals that talk), "Holy man" (interesting but more confusing than amusing) and "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps" (definitely one of his worst movies, waste of his undisputed talents and a model example of a comedy that doesn't make you laugh).

Lately I saw "Life" and surprisingly it was pretty brilliant and alongside with fairly good "Bowfinger" it's the only completely clear exception in this course. What I'm saying is, "Beverly Hills cop III" started it all. Was it all just a coincidence or was it meant to be that Eddie Murphy's best years were in the 80's and early 90's? I can't tell. This is just the way I see things."
With a film title like this one, I expected quite alot and w

""Are you going to work with Eddie Murphy again?" Asked to John Landis by someone at the 1992 Fangoria Convention. "I hope not," Landis replied. Now keep in mind this was in reference to them working together in "Coming to America," not this film. I have no idea why they teamed up together again, because the evidence from this film shows they must have really disliked one another even more. Look at this film and then look at "Trading Places," their first collaboration and you can begin to see the differences. I thought with this third "Beverly Hills Cop," Landis was going to support the story adaquately, then for the action scenes show his wild spirit (ala the ending sequences of "Animal House," "American Werewolf," and "Blues Brothers"), and for the comedy, roll two to three cameras and let Eddie play with each scene. If Landis could give Michael Jackson room to do what he wanted in the "Black or White" video, why not let Eddie do what he does best instead of forcing his character and us the audience through a bunch of painfully unfunny scenes, terrible acting, and a tv movie look? Sure it looks better on dvd than it did in the theatres, but that is still no excuse for betraying the core of this series. If it had tried to do something different and been successful, this film would be liked much more. The reason why it is so hated is because the film has no pulse or soul--something I never thought possible for John Landis or Eddie Murphy.
Both men are capable of great things but lord have mercy on this film and give everyone their two hours back."

"Now this is one movie that made me want to get up and leave the movie theater! I regret paying my hard earned money to see this badly put out, predictable, boring plot."
