1985 comedy film Police Academy 2 filming locations is our focus of attention today in Otakukart. Firstly, while not as hugely popular as the original movie. This installment of Police Academy is just as funny. Most actors reprise their roles, with Steve Guttenberg in the lead as Carey Mahoney, a funnyman turned police officer. Also reprising their roles are Michel Winslow, Bubba Smith, and George Gaines. Secondly, in this movie, a crime ring led by Zed, a weird, quirky fellow outmans the police department. And in consequence, the cadets must go out and fight crime.
Carey Mahoney, Eugene Tackleberry, Moses Hightower, Police Academy Jones, Laverne Hooks, and Douglas Fackler have finished their agent training and are now ready for real-world police work. They work in a police station in one of the city’s most dangerous neighborhoods. Captain Pete Lassard, Commander Lassard’s younger brother, leads this Office. In consequence, Commissioner Hurst is putting pressure on Peter Lassard to solve the crime within 30 days. He is opposed by the outside world and is also known to be working on Lieutenant Mauser’s desk. He is determined to fail the new agents at any cost so that Lassard is dismissed and he becomes captain.
Police Academy 2 Filming Locations
The second Police Academy movie was shot entirely in Los Ángeles, unlike its predecessor, whose photography took place in Toronto. In consequence, that choice of venue put the costs of the movie up to $7 million dollars. Additionally, several locations in Los Ángeles were chosen for scenes, Zed’s gang hideout was at Griffith Park’s Old Zoo. Moreover, Officer’s Eugene Tackleberry’s wedding was in Pasadena at the Church of the Angels. Some other car chases and outdoors were shot at the Third Street Tunnel in Downtown LA.
Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment Plot
In a short period of time, crime in the Agency’s area rose by 20%. The culprit is a graffiti-spreading group headed by a particular Zed. Nobody knows where they’re from. Commissioner Hurst is putting pressure on Peter Lassard to solve the crime within 30 days. He is opposed by the outside world and is also known to be working on Lieutenant Mauser’s desk. He is determined to fail the new agents at any costs, so that Lassard is dismissed and he becomes captain.
For their first few days on the job, each agent is paired with an experienced colleague. Tackleberry’s business partner is motor agent Kathleen Kirkland, with whom he falls in love right away. The gang battle is exhausting, and not only because of Mauser’s frustrations. The agents are likewise in the form of a jar (among other things by a shop in a shootout with each other). The situation worsens when Captain Lassard is confronted. Pete is searching for his brother and is dissatisfied with the inexperience of the trained agents. Eric suggests that the graffiti gang from their town have a street party.
Mahoney takes down Zed’s Gang
In a last-ditch effort to halt the gang, Mahoney, Schtulman, and Lassard band together. To infiltrate the gang, Mahoney goes undercover. Lassard and Schtulman attach a Mr. Microphone to him. As “Jughead,” a former member of the gang “The Archies,” he infiltrates the gang, discovering both their hiding place (the abandoned Griffith Park Zoo) and the identity of their boss. His cover is exposed, however, when the microphone cuts into a radio commercial, prompting Captain Lassard to summon every soldier to the spot. Mauser stops the police as they approach.
Mauser tries to carry out a raid, but Fackler knocks him into an air vent, resulting in his arrest by Zed and his crew. The police conduct their own raid, defeating and arresting the gang. Zed tries to flee with Mahoney, but Lassard stops him and prepares to shoot Zed. Mahoney, on the other hand, knocks Zed down the steps, where Hooks captures him. Lassard’s pistol was empty since he “hasn’t carried live ammunition since ’73.” Later, he is restored as captain, along with Mahoney and Schtulman on the force, but Mauser is reduced to lieutenant. Tackleberry and Kirkland’s wedding is attended by the officers (including the re-instated Lassard). They flee in Bigfoot, the giant truck.
