True story (which I'll admit I just learned a minute ago)...

Axel Foley was originally going to be...

Sylvester Stallone

That was an interesting little article about how Stallone planned to make it a stright up action movie.

Also, this was in that the article, I wonder if it's still on? Beverly Hills Cop 4 With Eddie Murphy Coming to Netflix - https://screenrant.com/beverly-hills-cop-4-eddie-murphy-netflix/

Hopefully it's better than Coming "2" America, which was one of the more bizarre films I've watched recently and was basically toilet
You could say it was the brown sauce of movie sequels

It was exactly what I expected, I was just happy to see the old characters and to see Eddie again :warnock:

So in other words it was a jug of water and a cloth?

Yes it was nice to see Eddie and the crew again but the film did strike me as about half an hour of original material, half an hour of flashbacks/rehashing of jokes from the first film and half an hour of random dancing just to pad it out a bit.

Plus the obligatory modern phenomenon of having a girl who can beat up men

As been mentioned I would like Idris Elba to have a crack at it but like Tony said we should be concentrating on the best man for the job not his colour of skin because it suits a new narrative
