An average movie

By now, I have seen almost all the movies starring Eddie Murphy (I think I miss only 4 movies). The weird thing is that I'm not even a huge fan of this guy but his movies very often come up on the various Dutch channels so I always end up checking them, out of sheer curiosity of boredom. Nowadays, he shows up in the most inane features and his career doesn't have much credibility. Another of his specialty are sequels. Indeed, apparently, if the paycheck is good, he will always shows up in a sequel. Most of them are worthless but they are a few exceptions (As a matter of fact, I prefer 'Beverly Hills Cop II' to the classic 1st installment) and this movie is one of them. I mean, it is not as good as '48 hrs', the very first movie starring Eddie Murphy, but it thought it was a decent action comedy, the typically buddy cop feature with the seasoned police officer and the clueless civilian. To be honest, it didn't add much to the formulas to become really interesting but I thought it was entertaining enough. After that, Murphy's 2nd sequel would be 'Beverly Hills Cop II' which I enjoyed but his other sequels were all really forgettable. At this point, even his regular features are pretty pathetic... To conclude, even though it was nothing amazing, it is actually a decent flick starring Eddie Murphy and therefore alone, it is absolutely worth a look.
