8/10
Beverly Hills Cop was a trailer blazer for cop action movies in the early 1980’s. The first installment into the series is filled with hilarious dialogue, many fist fights, and countless opportunities to break every law in the book. There’s a great chemistry between all the lead actors, who feed so well off each other, you have to wonder what was improvised or was actually written in the script. Unlike the films to follow, the tone to this film is far more serious and centers around the illegal drug transportation. It is amusing to see an out of cop try to fight crime in a different city, but Axel Foley does his best with the limited connections he has.
