Movie Info

At times, Another 48 Hrs. seems less like a sequel to than a parody of the first 48 Hrs., especially when Nick Nolte, repeating his role from the earlier film, begins commenting on the cliched absurdity of the goings on. This time, Nolte risks life, limb and career as he obsessively tries to bring an elusive master criminal known as "The Iceman" to justice. Eddie Murphy, who stole the show in the first 48 Hrs. as the wheeler-dealer convict who becomes Nolte's reluctant partner, is brought into

You know how sometimes, in a dream, you'll see these familiar scenes and faces floating in and out of focus, but you're not sure how they connect? Another 48 HRS is a movie that feels the same way.

Hill and his stars are merely going through the motions, but the motions are immensely familiar.

Not a career high for anyone involved, rarely has 90-odd minutes felt more like 48 hours.

From start to finish, the picture is barely alive, staggering through a cardboard obstacle course while waving around a few guns and breasts to keep the audience awake.

Tough, taut direction by action auteur Walter Hill makes this a much better sequel than its reputation.

Who the hell cares? Take back the first 48.

On it's own it's entertaining. As a sequel, it's dissapointing.

Color-by-numbers sequel that copies the action while forgetting the comedy.

A sequel in the worst sense.

Audience Reviews for Another 48 Hrs.

Really, it's the same caliber as the first, I actually think this one flows better and has more interesting bad guys. Sure, it's basically a very standard sequel but it's just a lot of fun and has characters that are so interesting. It's a really solid buddy cop movie, anyone who loves the genre will definitely like this.

It's faster, funnier and more action-packed than the first. An endlessly enjoyable sequel. Better than the first. Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy are still a great team. Hard-hitting, fast, furious and relentlessly funny. What a great and fun ride. An explosive and suspenseful action-packed comedy loaded with great stunts and body-slamming laughs. The boys are back in town and this time their packing more heat.
