Beverly Hills Cop, the hit 1984 blockbuster comedy starring Eddie Murphy, makes its newly remastered arrival on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.

The physical release comes after the trilogy was released together on Blu-ray in January 2020.  It feels like another year, right?  In any event, this release also features the same bonus content.  However, a few features are also on both discs.  Everything is also on the Blu-ray for what it’s worth.  If you prefer, the film is already available on Digital in 4K Ultra HD.

Synopsis

The heat is on in this fast-paced action-comedy starring Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley, a street-smart Detroit cop tracking down his best friend’s killer in Beverly Hills.  Axel quickly learns that his wild style doesn’t fit in with the Beverly Hills Police Department, which assigns two officers (Judge Reinhold and John Ashton) to make sure things don’t get out of hand.  Dragging the stuffy detectives along for the ride, Axel smashes through a huge culture clash in this hilarious high-speed pursuit of justice.  Featuring cameos by Paul Reiser, Bronson Pinchot, and Damon Wayans and newly remastered for 4K UHD by director Martin Brest, Beverly Hills Cop is an exhilarating blockbuster.
