    What happened? The first two (mostly the first one) was the start of a very promising series! In this one, the violence is very bland and the plot is even more formulaic. And the bombshell is that Eddie Murphy didn't play the character like he did in the first two.

    The comedy is mostly restricted to one-liners, some of which aren't funny. And the action is uninspired, barely tapping the vast potential of an amusement park chase film.

    Beverly Hills Cop III is a generic action movie, an Eddie Murphy film with only a trace of Eddie Murphy.

    Landis's handling of the cop business is unnecessarily laborious, but Murphy's patented insincerity is winning. And a few of the slapstick set pieces are genuinely thrilling, especially a riotous nighttime chase scene.
