How to Stream the Axel F Netflix Sequel

Forty years after the original, the long-awaited third sequel in the “Beverly Hills Cop” franchise premieres this week on Netflix.

Here’s everything you need to know about “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F,” the franchise, and how to stream the Eddie Murphy action-comedy.

“Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F” is available on Netflix starting Wednesday, July 3. Netflix subscribers can access the movie as soon as it becomes available.

Most new offerings on the streaming platform are typically released at midnight Pacific Standard Time. This means that “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F” should be ready for viewing at 3 a.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday.

The original “Beverly Hills Cop” released in 1984 follows Detroit cop Axel Foley, whose friend Mikey Tandino is murdered in Detroit. This prompts Axel to head to Beverly Hills to investigate. His unconventional methods clash with the more traditional Beverly Hills police department. Together with detectives Billy Rosewood and John Taggart, Axel uncovers a link between Mikey’s murder and a wealthy art dealer named Victor Maitland.

The 1987 sequel, “Beverly Hills Cop II,” sees Axel returning to Beverly Hills after Chief Andrew Bogomil is shot and severely injured. Axel investigates a series of crimes, known as the Alphabet Crimes, which are connected to the shooting. He discovers that Karla Fry, a former associate of Victor Maitland, is behind these crimes.

In “Beverly Hills Cop III,” released in 1994, Axel investigates a deadly attack at an amusement park, which leads him to uncover a counterfeiting ring run by the park’s security head, Ellis DeWald. Axel teams up with Billy Rosewood, now a captain, and park employee Janice to expose the counterfeiting operation.

In the latest installment, “Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F,” Axel Foley returns to Los Angeles to work with his old friends Billy Rosewood and John Taggart after someone threatens his daughter’s life, as described in a synopsis on IMDb.

All three of the earlier “Beverly Hills Cop” movies are available for streaming. The first two films are available on both Netflix and Paramount Plus, while “Beverly Hills Cop III” can be streamed on Paramount Plus.

The franchise has featured an ensemble cast, with some notable names returning for the sequels:

In the original “Beverly Hills Cop,” Eddie Murphy starred as Axel Foley, Judge Reinhold as Detective Billy Rosewood, Steven Berkoff as Victor Maitland, and Paul Reiser as Jeffrey.

“Beverly Hills Cop II” featured Brigitte Nielsen as Karla Fry, Jurgen Prochnow as Maxwell Dent, and Dean Stockwell as Charles Cain.

In “Beverly Hills Cop III,” Héctor Elizondo appeared as Jon Flint and Bronson Pinchot as Serge.

Over the years, the character of Axel Foley has delivered several memorable quotes that have become closely associated with the franchise:

From “Beverly Hills Cop”:

  • “I’m not gonna fall for a banana in the tailpipe!”
  • “Disturbing the peace? I got thrown out of a window! What’s the charge for getting pushed out of a moving car, huh? Jaywalking?”

From “Beverly Hills Cop II”:

  • “This is not the kind of situation where you say ‘very funny’ and then run out of the room.”
  • “It’s like going on a date with a librarian. You don’t get to touch anything interesting.”

From “Beverly Hills Cop III”:

  • “Look, man, I ain’t fallin’ for no banana in my tailpipe!”
  • “By the way, the truck’s in the building!”
