Speaking to StarPulse, director Brett Ratner has revealed that both he and Eddie Murphy believe that "Beverly Hills Cop 3" is a terrible movie and they tend to do better on "Beverly Hills Cop 4."
"If you don't think Eddie recognizes that movie is not good, if you don't think I recognize that movie's not good, I mean, come on. It's obviously a bad movie," he said of the third installment. "We're obviously aspiring to make a movie as good as the first one. It's not always easy. It's harder when you're in it. I'm an outsider."
Ratner added that he will not make the mistakes that director John Landis (Animal House, Coming to America) did making "Beverly Hills Cop 3." "Trust me - you're going to be very surprised by this," he promised. "We're working on the script and when that script comes in we're going to make that movie."
For now, check out the video below to get a taste of what Ratner's "Beverly Hills Cop 4" will be like.

dude, im psyched for BHC4, if it ever gets made. the first two were great movies back in the day, and i think brett ratner could do well with a rated r version.

"We're working on the script and when that script comes in we're going to make that movie."
Yeah that's what usually happens with movies brett. Of course you have the mental age of a five year old so I accept that sounds pretty intelligent to you. Talking about third movies sucking. X MEN 3 anyone.

BHC3 - Eddie in the mascot suit... touching his co-stars hand accidently... the awkward sexual tension. Eddie running along top a Ferris Wheel with green screening effects clearly donated by some Jr. High School.
Oh... OK. It's all coming back to me now.
Yeah... BHC3 WAS sh*t ALRIGHT!!!!!

isn't every Brett Ratner movie terrible?... I'll let the first Rush Hour slide... but seriously... he looks like the kind of guy who makes his whores do blow off his nasty ass belly for a shot at a role in his upcoming movie...

Wait I thought Eddie Murphy did retire? He said his last movie was going to be Meet Dave...and then Imagine That came out. this guys gonna keep making sh*t comedies, sequels, and childrens movies till he dies. Why cant he make another Dreamgirls or take some roles that will help his career? The guys a f*ckin Oscar nominee throw him some good scripts.

@ Ted Mosby, yes they are all terrible. I will even give him more credit for Money Talks than I will any of the Rush Hour movies. Regardless, Brett Ratner is a horrible director. Watch X3 and tell me how many times you cringe.

I really wish people would stop pointing out how Xmen 3 sucked, He was a last minute replacement for the Layer Cake guy who left cause he wasnt feeling the movie. Mainly cause that movie was too far along sets designed, ready to film and what not. The one you should really blame is Bryan Singer for leaving to do f*cking Superman.

Yeah it's very difficult for me to take Brett Ratner seriously when he says he'll make a good film...
Red Dragon was the only thing that came remotely close to a decent film... But it had nothing to do with ratner, it was the cast...
Ratners a horrible director, I doubt very much he'll be able to make his version better than the 3rd one... and the 3rd one sucked balls.

It's pretty much the perfect job for Rattner.
X-Men 3 was expertly directed. You have problems with the story, then its the writer you're pissed at. Rattner did an excellent job coming onto the set late.

It would be difficult to dish out a film as good as the first one considering it was the most successful rated R comedy until recently. I'm hoping they can pull this off because I'm craving some classic Eddie Murphy.
The second one sucked the most with barely any humour and crap editing- but you don't want to be Brett Ratner calling Tony Scott out for an action movie pissing contest because Ratner knows he'd be tasting a lot of bubbles.
The third was funny and entertaining despite some wacky out of place moments in the WonderWorld setting. It felt rushed because it was...still good though.
...but Ratner had all the time in the world to develop a decent Rush Hour 3. WTF is his excuse for that? Xena Warrior Princess has better action sequences. Not ONE decent thrill from that flick...I mean they didnt even have a 'spinning tire on fire flies at the screen' moment or nothin. lol

who starts off an article with "speaking of..." lmao i found that funny
and Red Dragon was an amazing movie, my favourite of the Hannibal series actually and its the first one i saw
^ thats in response to what someone said but im too lazy to scroll down and check who
triggaxwrites: on September 12th, 2009 at 3:41:04 PM
Yeah that was me...
Go out and get yourself a copy of Manhunter.
Michael Manns impressive first Hannibal lecter film.. even before silence of the lambs...
It was adapted from the same novel as Red Dragon.. and was 8 million times better than Ratners version, while ratners version was still good.. It's more or less the EXACT same movie scene for scene... Movies are a lot easier to make when you have a foundation already built....

Brett Ratner? Eddie Murphy? Well, that's three strikes, and you're out!
CitizenKangwrites: on September 13th, 2009 at 1:17:59 AM
Ratner and Murphy calling Beverly Hills Cop 3 terrible is like Hitler and Pol Pot calling Joseph Stalin an *sshole.
