|10.10.06||DVR|| Beverly Hills Cop night tonight... except the third one which I didn't bother to record. I haven't seen this first one in a long time... I remember it being not nearly as flashy as the second. It really is. I guess this is right at the beginning of the Simpson/Bruckheimer filter-rama mega success of the late 80s/early 90s so their very identifiable style wasn't as clear an imprint on Brest's direction as it became with the rest of em. Aside from the synthesized score (I still remember how awesome I thought the main theme was when I was a kid) there's really no 80s cheese here at all. I do have vague memories though of how explosive a hit this was, and Eddie Murphy doing all his little schticks to get around proper police procedure. They still end up killing like a dozen guys though... it's definitely the same decade that brought us Commando...|
So now let's see if my memory of the second one is any better than the first.
