Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film seems... to be a precisely timed affair: so many seconds for this, so many for that, and the natural flow of the story be damned."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"Been there and done that better."
‑ Beth Accomando,
"Perhaps the pinnacle of Eddie Murphy's career."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"Not quite as frenetically fun as the original, but Murphy still works his game."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"Murphy still has energy and charisma to spare and raises the performances of the more subdued actors that surround him."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"What is comedy? That's a pretty basic question, I know, but Cop II never thought to ask it."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Not as good as the original, but fast and funny enough to suffice fans"
‑ Clint Morris, Film Threat
"Skip this one and go back to the first 'Cop.'"
‑ Dan Lybarger, Lawrence Journal-World
"Pointless, hateful sequel."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"[Nothing] really, except a delivery system for Murphy. But Murphy in those days was appealing enough that this proves to be very nearly sufficient."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Fun sequel"
‑ Fred Topel,
"This ultraslick, laughless sequel suffers from Axel Foley's personality overhaul into a complete jerk."
‑ Jonathan R. Perry, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"Just interested in being more BHC; nobody really bothered with quality control."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
