Critics Consensus

Content to let a very game Eddie Murphy bring all the heat, the fourth Beverly Hills Cop coasts on nostalgia but marks a welcome return for Axel Foley.

Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Nina Metz Chicago Tribune Murphy might be one of the most talented performers of any generation and it’s thrilling to see him back in the role that turned him into a movie star. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 9, 2024 Full Review Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Rafer Guzman Newsday The heat is definitely off. Rated: 1.5/4 Jul 9, 2024 Full Review Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Jen Chaney New York Magazine/Vulture Despite its reliance on the familiar, Axel F actually is largely a good time, so breezy and insistent on not taking itself too seriously that you can’t even get mad when the dialogue occasionally sounds like it got pumped out by ChatGPT.

Audience Member Loved every second of it the old school music the feeling definitely a movie a will watch over and over again Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/09/24 Full Review Audience Member Was like watching the old one. Just way to easy to spot the bad guy. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/08/24 Full Review Pete W I loved the original, it was fantastic. This film tries to hang on the back of it instead of adding anything. The storyline worked ok but the acting and production unfortunately was truly forgettable. Rated 0.5/5 Stars • Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/08/24 Full Review Helena L We have seen this movie so many times before. The chase scenes are tiresome and the story line predictable. Rated 2/5 Stars • Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/08/24 Full Review Daniel B This is by a long way the best thing Eddie Murphie has been in in decades, it's really solid and a worthy sequel to the originals. The only issues are that the sub plot about Axels daughter really doesn't fit and Joseph Gordon-Levitt still can't act for toffee. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/08/24 Full Review Hairball H If you're stuck inside for 2 hours broiling this summer and you're tapped on things to watch or read, then check this out. Mildly entertaining, but all in all a pretty stale nostalgia trip, as if the 80s were cool anyway. Eddie Murphy saves it from being unwatchable, while the rest of the actors chip away at him. Rated 2/5 Stars • Rated 2 out of 5 stars 07/08/24 Full Review Read all reviews
