Beverly Hills Cop


Detroit cop Axel Foley(Eddie Murphy) is delighted when he receives a surprise visit from his best friend Mikey Tandino(James Russo), who lives in California. Not long after Mikey arrives in Detroit, Mikey is killed, right in front of Axel, by a man named Zack(Jonathan Banks). Axel follows Zack to Beverly Hills, California, where Beverly Hills police department Lieutenant Andrew Bogomil(Ronny Cox) assigns Detective Billy Rosewood(Judge Reinhold) and Rosewood's partner, Sergeant John Taggart(John Ashton), to keep an eye on Axel. Axel visits his friend Jenny Summers(Lisa Eilbacher), who works in an art gallery. With Jenny's help, Axel discovers that Zack works for Jenny's boss, Victor Maitland(Steven Berkoff), the man who owns the art gallery. Maitland is a drug kingpin who is using the gallery as a front, and Maitland had Zack kill Mikey after Maitland accused Mikey of stealing some of Maitland's bonds. With the help of Jenny, Billy, and Taggart, Axel does what he can to make sure Maitland and Zack won't kill any more people
