It's one of the most cynically engineered sequels ever.

The movie... isn't nearly as fresh as the first Cop flick was. But I must admit that it's a whole lot more enjoyable than the contemptible crashathon known as Beverly Hills Cop II.

Eddie Murphy needs to shoot off his mouth. It's his best weapon, and the one that's unique to his arsenal. When a movie mostly requires him to shoot off a gun he becomes just another action star, and another talent wasted in lazily miscalculated material.

Steven E. de Souza's script has Foley following a trail of murder and deception into an L. A. amusement park called WonderWorld. The director, John Landis, fails to exploit the possibilities.

The third and last movie of this series follows the same formula as the last one, there are no surprises, in fact it's worse than the second one. I did… More

I can't decide which is worse, plagiarist remakes or regurgitated sequels?

The weakest in the series by quite a way. The first 2 were very good and I thought the second film was the best, just a bit slicker than the other two.… More
