Excerpt: WOW!! Worst picture quality in my catalog. There are some screens that look great but they are many that actually sparkle. Yes I said sparkle. Pretty much every scene in Eddie's apartment Eddie's hair is sparkling. I bought it in the Walmart bargain bin and feel I paid to much. It's a great movie but I'd skip this one and wait for a remaster.
Excerpt: A streetwise cop from the projects of Detroit goes to Beverly Hills to investigate the execution-style murder of a childhood friend. Beverly Hills Cop was one of the first wave of 80s action-comedies that conquered the American box office and is still a formula followed to this day. It's the story of a stranger in a strange land as the kid from the ghettos is amused and bemused by the playthings of the idle rich while seeing how the other half live..
Summary: The "classic" Eddie Murphy is in top form in this action/comedy hybrid that spawned lesser sequels. This original is a great view and is purely 80s entertainment, and good entertainment at that. For those lamenting where Murphy is now, pop this in and remember the good times.
Excerpt: Ah the 80's, such style and great music. Eddie Murphy the go-to comedian of the decade. Hot off Saturday Night Live his film debut 48Hrs. and this essential classic Beverly Hills Cop which early on was a script meant as a action flick for Sylvester Stallone. Murphy made this movie an instant hit from the opening scenes until the climatic end.
Excerpt: Eddie murphy was a huge star after this movie. One of my all time fave films of that era. Eddie sure is on top form in this one of his best roles. For a catalogue title from nearly 25 years ago the picture quality scrubs up pretty well, there is a nice healthy layer of grain in the film & although a little soft in places the daytime scenes are pretty clean & a nice upgrade from the DVD.
Excerpt: I will skip the movie review and just focus on PQ & AQ. PQ: The picture quality on this release is a let down think they could done a much better job on this. Just compare to other Paramount films released the last two months u see not much work has gone into this release. AQ: Since I am a huge DTS fan I must say that the sound on this is very very bad compared to other DTS releases. If I wanna use on word on this it is FLAT! NO use of back speakers, or sub.
