Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


Since the 1980s, Hollywood comedies have increased greatly. Among them, the most representative are detective Beverly Hills and ghost catchers, which were released in 1984. They have become the only two comedies among the top 10 films in the United States over the years.

The reason for the increase in comedies is related to the economy. In the 1980s, production companies were no longer owned by the giants of the film industry in the past. They became a department of large enterprises under various consortia. The main purpose is to increase profits, and art has retreated to a secondary position. In fact, in the 1980s when production costs were rising, no production company could withstand years of losses. Therefore, they try to avoid risks and shoot films that are easy to be guaranteed at the box office – films shot specifically for a specific range of audiences. The main part of the film audience is teenagers. Therefore, a variety of films catering to the tastes of young audiences came into being, among which comedy plays an important role: thriller comedy, horror comedy, sex comedy and so on.

Detective Beverly Hills is a thrilling and funny comedy. Since its release in 1984, it has recovered $350 million in the United States and around the world. Through the process of a little black detective in Detroit, an industrial city in the northeast of the United States, going to the wealthy Beverly Hills of Los Angeles on the west coast to handle a case, the film reflects the conflict of American cultures and makes a mockery of social ills such as bureaucracy, racial prejudice and so on.

There have been many films reflecting cultural differences since the 1980s. For example, the British film local hero describes the cultural conflict between American tycoons and Scottish fishermen; The American film “witness” shows the confrontation between modern civilized life and the pastoral village life of the Baptist Amish; The Beijing story, CO produced by China and the United States, reflects the differences between modern American civilization and traditional Chinese culture. Detective Beverly Hills falls into this category.

At the beginning of the film, the Detroit police station left a deep impression on the audience: the police cars there are dilapidated, the offices are simple and noisy, and the detectives are used to swearing because they deal with local ruffians and hooligans all year round. Even if the director scolds his men, it is also a dirty word. In the scenic Beverly Hills, the police station has a magnificent appearance and the police car is brand-new and shiny. (Axel was imprisoned and couldn’t help but exclaim: “this is the most beautiful police car I’ve ever sat in my life.”) The office is clean and quiet. The detectives are well mannered in suits and shoes. They deal with high-class people. Needless to say, the detectives of Beverly Hills police department naturally don’t pay attention to the little black detectives from Detroit.

However, when it comes to efficiency, the personnel of Beverly Hills police station are much inferior. Their two stalks were easily thrown off; Professional smell is completely ineffective; The emergency operation was clumsy, and the criminal drug cartel was almost spared due to bureaucracy, while the black detective from Detroit showed his talent everywhere.

Axel’s value was recognized by his peers there after three in and three out of Beverly Hills police station. The first time he was handcuffed. No one in the police station doubted that he was disturbing the law and order. Until deputy director bogomir talked to the Detroit police department on the phone, he still said to axel, “I deeply doubt that your superior said you were an excellent detective; he said you gave him a headache, which I deeply believe.” The second time Acker entered the police station was after a nightclub fight. He attributed the arrest of the two robbers to Tate and rosewood, but bogomire didn’t believe his men had such skills. He replaced the two of them, but his attitude towards Axel was much softer. The third time Aker entered the police station was because of the big club. At this time, he had won the favor of detective Beverly Hills, and bogomir also wanted to help, but director Harbert was still full of prejudice against the black man and ordered him to be escorted out of the country indiscriminately. However, after a period of getting along, detective Beverly Hills has been influenced by Axel: the well behaved rosewood dared to disobey orders to send Axel to the gallery warehouse. Tate, who is familiar with the legal provisions, also violated the provisions of “no trespassing into private houses”, climbed over the wall and entered the hospital to help Axel crack down on the Maitland criminal group. Even bogomir covered for Axel so that he would not be punished by the Detroit police department for “unauthorized action”.

This film, called detective Beverly Hills, actually praises the Detroit detective. The ironic target is Beverly Hills, a rich society full of disadvantages – the police station that should uphold justice has unconsciously become the umbrella of bad people; Behind elegant works of art is criminal drug trafficking; Snobbish villains everywhere; “Upper class” clubs only give the green light to waiting male prostitutes. The conflict between the two cultures can not help but remind people of a sentence: the humble is smart, and the noble is stupid.

Since the 1980s, with the development of mass culture, blacks have gradually occupied an important position in mass culture. Television, film and music have their representatives. The black singer Michael Jackson mentioned in this film has a record circulation of 70 million sets. Eddie Murphy, the protagonist of this film, is one of the most attractive actors at the box office in Hollywood. Detective Beverly Hills has caused such a sensation at the box office because it is an “Eddie Murphy film”. All the other characters, plots, scenes and so on in the film are just to set off axel. He is a fashion ruffian, pretending to be a reporter, pretending to be a customs official, and pretending to be a male prostitute… The film provides all opportunities for the black young actor to give full play to his acting talent. Axel is a “bad boy type good detective”. He is deviant and unruly, but he is maintaining social order; He laughed and scolded, satirized and sarcastic. In essence, he was working seriously. Eddie Murphy began making 48 hours and overturn the world in 1983. Detective Beverly Hills is the third film. He has the unique playfulness, agility and flexibility of today’s comedians. He can speak rude words. Young people like to watch his plays. As long as it is a film starring him, it will sell, because it can always make people laugh and achieve the purpose of entertainment.
