Beverly Hills Cop 4 Rotten Tomatoes Score: Was Netflix Sequel Worth 30-Year Wait?

Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F receives mixed reviews with a 69% Rotten Tomatoes rating. Critics praise Eddie Murphy's return but criticize nostalgia over new ideas.

It has been three decades since we last saw Eddie Murphy's iconic character, Axel Foley, in a Beverly Hills Cop adventure. The long-awaited fourth installment, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F, has received mixed reviews, currently holding a 69% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics have praised Eddie Murphy's return and the entertaining summer blockbuster elements of the film. However, they have also criticized the movie for relying too heavily on nostalgia and failing to bring anything new to the table.

Despite the mixed reviews, there are positive aspects that critics have highlighted. Nate Richard of Collider gave the film an 8/10 rating, describing it as the kind of blockbuster that audiences crave. Luke Reilly of IGN Movies also rated Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F highly, calling it a "highly watchable" cinematic experience. Screen Rant's Ferdosa Abdi and Jamie Graham of Total Film found the movie enjoyable, with Abdi noting that it's a good time but not a slam dunk.

On the other hand, some critics were less impressed with the film. Julian Roman of MovieWeb criticized the movie for relying too much on nostalgia, while Entertainment Weekly's Jordan Hoffman lamented the lack of innovation in the storyline. Owen Gleiberman of Variety and David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter both felt that Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F failed to bring anything fresh to the franchise and instead leaned heavily on past successes.

Directed by Mark Molloy and written by Will Beall, Tom Gormican, and Kevin Etten, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F features a star-studded cast including Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Bronson Pinchot, and Paul Reiser. New additions to the cast include Taylour Paige, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mark Pellegrino, and Kevin Bacon. The film follows Detective Axel Foley as he teams up with old friends and a new partner to uncover a conspiracy after his daughter's life is threatened.

Despite the criticisms, Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F promises to deliver an action-packed and entertaining experience for fans of the franchise. The movie is now available for streaming on Netflix.
