Better than a lot of people say
Sequel to the hugely successful 1984 movies, this film was most unfairly slated by critics. I believe in some ways it is better than the original and certainly far, far better than the third installment. The story is, despite what everyone says, very engaging and keeps you watching the whole time. Eddie Murphy starred in Coming to America shortly after this, and then his career took a nosedive, although he seems to be making a comeback. If he is given more roles like this, he'll do better.

Trivia

There was a deleted scene from the Shooting Club where Axel, Rosewood, and Taggart must carefully sneak past a hallway with several lasers covering it. Axel tells Taggart to blow cigar smoke across the floor to expose the lasers and the trio have to carefully straddle the lasers and sneak across the hallway to Dent's office. According to director Tony Scott, this scene was deleted because it slowed the pacing of the movie too much and because it was "too far removed from reality" and it clashed with the overall tone of the movie. The deleted scene can be viewed in the DVD extras.

Goofs

When the detectives open the envelope containing the first letter in the police station, the paper is straight. In the next shot it's ragged.


Alternate Versions

In Ontario, the film was rated Restricted, which meant that no one under 18 could attend. In hopes of reaching a wider audience in the province, Paramount appealed the rating and asked that it be reduced to Adult Accompaniment (under 14 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian). The Ontario Censor Board agreed to their request as long as the line "She can suck a golf ball through twenty feet of garden hose" was removed. The studio made the cut and the rating was changed from R to AA. The line remained in the subsequent video release.
