Movie Beverly Hills Cop (1984)

20170217:
This is one of those movies which I've wanted to watch because of its familiar name, but lack any incentive to watch.

Axel Foley (Eddie Murphy)

The movie was refreshing to watch, because most films I've seen in the action crime genre are buddy cop movies (e.g., Rush Hour, Lethal Weapon, The Other Guys). In addition, I also liked the film's dialogue. On the other hand, there were one or two moments where the protagonist's ability to talk his way out of trouble would feel repetitive.

Overall, Beverly Hills Cop was an entertaining action movie. I would, however, be more reserved with my recommendation of it to others.

Sgt. Taggart (John Ashton) and Det. Billy Rosewood (Judge Reinhold)

Rated by Netflix at 4 stars. I'd also rate it as 4 stars even. I'd give it a 7.6 on IMDb.com, but since I can only use integers, I'll give it a 7; it's currently 7.3 on IMDb.com over 131,626 user ratings.

Holy. I didn't see that coming. (Axel's friend Mikey is killed)

Jenny Summers (Lisa Eilbacher)

Lol. About four or so men come out at a push of the button, carry him downstairs, and then throw him out the window.
"Foul-mouth, fuck you, man."
Judge Reinhold (plays Rosewood) looks familiar, but I don't know what I've seen him in
"crappy blue Chevy Nova"

Taggart, Rosewood, and Lt. Bogomil (Ronny Cox)

Haha, that intimidation tactic after being asked if he has a warrant
Lol. "Fuck up a perfectly good lie..."
Hahaha. Rosewood stands and yells into enemy fire, "Police, you're under arrest."
Rosewood tells Taggart that the moment reminds him of the ending of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969).

Victor Maitland (Steven Berkoff)

Happened just like the Lieutenant said Chief.
Haha. Adds two robes to the bill and gives it to them.
"I already have three of them in my bag."
