“BEVERLY HILLS COP finds Eddie Murphy doing what he does best: playing the shrewdest, hippest, fastest-talking underdog in a rich man’s world. An opening montage establishes the ghetto origins of Axel Foley, the Detroit policeman whom Mr. Murphy plays. But Axel turns out to be much more at home in the posh California settings where most of the film takes place. Cruising the streets of Beverly Hills in his jalopy, or strolling into hotels and restaurants in a well-worn sweatshirt, Axel maintains every bit of his cool. Far from being daunted, he enjoys the challenge. Axel’s confidence never wavers, nor does his natural authority – and for that, audiences will love him.” – Janet Maslin, The New York Times
