It was also a huge success, but much less than the legendary Eddie Murphy film.

There is a lot of talk these days about the saga ‘Superdetective in Hollywood’ on the occasion of the premiere of ‘Axel F.’, the fourth installment of the same. The franchise is so associated with the name of Eddie Murphy It’s hard to think of any other actor in the lead role, but the truth is that he wasn’t the first choice, although the one who was close to doing so was Sylvester Stallone.

The protagonist of ‘The Expendables’ became so involved that he made a deep review of the film’s scriptStallone himself defined his approach thus: “It looked like the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan on the beaches of Normandy. Believe it or not, the ending was me in a stolen Lamborghini playing a game of who had the most balls with an oncoming freight train driven by the bad guy.“. And he even changed the name of the protagonist, going from Axel Foley to Axel Cobretti.

The strong arm of the law

However, Stallone got off the boat just two weeks before filming began and ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ eventually returned to its original approach. However, the ideas that the creator of the ‘Rocky’ universe had did not fall on deaf ears, as many of them ended up being recycled just two years later in ‘Cobra’.

Therefore, it is very easy to see in This legendary action film is a kind of remake or secret sequel to ‘Superdetective in Hollywood’. Of course, ‘Cobra’ has very little comedy, but it was also a huge success at the box office, as it took in 160 million dollars against a budget of 25. Of course, the film led by Murphy eats up the cake in that aspect, as it cost 13 million and grossed 234.

Curiously, Stallone was not very happy with ‘Cobra, the strong arm of the law’, as he went so far as to say that “It was half done, I could have done it better, but I wasn’t focused enough. I felt like it was something I should have directed, but I didn’t and I regret it.“.
