BEVERLY HILLS COP (Movie)
A Detroit street cop goes to Los Angeles to track down the murderer of his friend.
Zack is a hired gun, murderer. His murder of Mikey, Foleys friend, gets the plot rolling. Zack whacks Mikey on the face and forehead, makes him grovel and apologize, then shoots him twice in back of head, execution-style. He also hits Foley twice in gut, hand chop to neck, then whack to head.
Mean and nasty. He has a soft voice, and many scenes consist of quiet background menace. Leaning on counter, fingers to forehead, at gallery, he makes his presence known even without lines. Wipes mouth after hitting Murphy.
Body throw over the buffet table is too obviously a stunt double and not JB.
Mostly suits and spotted ties, which the designer must love, since everyone wears them.
He has food all over him after being thrown over buffet table by Foley.
"Hits the mark... slick and sleek... crackling with energy... too much violence... an expert cast, expertly playing off each other as well as Murphy. James Russo, Jonathan Banks, Gilbert R. Hill, - bravos to them all." "...sadistic gunsels..." (describes JB) Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times, 12/5/1984, sec.VI, p.1.
Also New York Times,12/5/1984, sec.III, p.25.
Shot, thrown backwards into glass door. (JB cut his head on the frame while filming this.)
"But I shoulda taken care of you in Detroit, when I popped your little buddy."
About 8 minutes in 6 scenes, throughout film.
