Beverly Hills Cop

Eddie Murphy, in one of his best roles, stars as an unfortunate Detroit cop whose best friend was brutally murdered. Determined to figure out who did it, Murphy decides to go on the case, despite his boss forbidding such an act. He tracks the killer to Beverly Hills, California to a rich and powerful art buyer. Of course this rich guy isn't going to let Murphy stick his nose in his affairs, and neither is the Beverly Hills police ... yet. Farfetched yet entertaining Murphy vehicle with an appealing plot, eye-popping action, wonderful suspense --- and a fair share of chuckles as well. Beverly Hills Cop is a recommended movie for almost everybody.
