Movie Summary

Tony Scott (I)

Beverly Hills Cop II follows further exploits of rogue Detroit police detective, Alex Foley. The film opens with Foley returning to Beverly Hills after he learns that former ally, Captain Andrew Bogomil was the victim of an assassination attempt. He begins investigating the shooting of Bogomil with the assistance of Detective Billy Rosewood and Sergeant John Taggart. Despite the interference of new police chief, Harold Lutz, the three men make a connection between Bogomil's shooting and a series of robberies known as the "Alphabet Crimes." Eventually, they begin to suspect that a wealthy man named Maxwell Dent is involved in both and ordered his personal hench-woman, Karla Fry to kill Bogomil when he began to make the same connection. Ultimately, Foley, Rosewood and Ashton must find a way to solve both crimes before becoming victims themselves.
