    Beverly Hills Cop Axel F Movie Review

    Eddie Murphy returns to one of the characters he made famous 40 years ago in Beverly Hills Cop in the fourth movie of the franchise, Beverly Hills Cop Axel F.

    The movie, streaming exclusively on Netflix as of this writing, stars Murphy as Axel Foley, a Detroit cop, who returns to Beverly Hills to help not only his friend from the other three movies, Billy Rosewood (played by Judge Reinhold), but also to help his daughter Jane (played by Taylor Paige).

    Her character’s life has been threatened because a client she is representing knows too much about a group of dirty cops.

    Also starring fellow Beverly Hills Cop movie alums John Ashton (John Taggart), Paul Reiser (Jeffrey Friedman) and Bronson Pinchot (Serge), and includes newcomers to the franchise but not to moviegoers Kevin Bacon and Joseph Gordon Levitt, this is a fun ride and if you are a fan of the franchise, there is nothing here you should not enjoy.

    It has been 30 years since the third movie and I must say I love them all, so I wish it would not have taken this long for another.  However, it was worth the wait.

    I had a lot of fun watching this.

    Another great addition to the franchise.
