For the past four years, San Francisco cop Jack Cates has been after an unidentified drug kingpin who calls himself the Ice Man. At the Hunters Point Raceway, Jack confronts Tyrone Burroughs and Arthur Brock. Jack kills Brock in self defense, but Burroughs escapes, and Jack is in danger of going to prison because Brocks gun cant be found. Jack finds a picture that proves that the Ice Man has put a price on the head of Reggie Hammond, who is scheduled to be released from prison on the next day. Jack tries to convince Reggie to help him clear his name and find the Ice Man, but Reggie says he wont help unless Jack gives Reggie the 500,000 that Jack has been holding on to for Reggie. Jack refuses to give Reggie the money unless Reggie helps him. After the bus that is transporting Reggie away from the prison is forced to crash by two bikers and Jack gets shot by the same two bikers, Jack forces Reggie to help him by having the hospital release Reggie into his custody. Reggie recognized one of the bikers as Richard Cherry Ganz, the brother of Albert Ganz, the escaped convict Jack killed years ago. Jack got shot because Cherry wants revenge for Alberts death, and Cherry and his partner Willie Hickok are the hitmen who have been hired to kill Reggie. Burroughs, who works for the Ice Man, was trying to hire Brock as insurance, just in case Cherry and Hickok fail. Blake Wilson, the head of the Internal Affairs division, obviously doesnt like Jack, because Wilson will stop at nothing to prosecute Jack for manslaughter in Brocks death, and it turns out that the Ice Man put a price on Reggies head because Reggie knows who the Ice Man is someone Jack never expected it to be.

Another 48 Hrs. isn't as good a film as the oringial but it's still hasit'smoments. Eddie and Nick still have the chemistry as Reggie and Jack. Theaction seqeunces are upped a bit and the finale of the film is actionpakced, althought this is one of the films that started Eddie down's falland it shows in his performance. But for me the action sequences and thebarscene earn the film ** 1/2 stars.
Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte are back as the duo who made the first movie great. This time, the cop and the convict are tracking down a drug lord in San Francisco. I liked this movie, but the scenes were not all that great, and it was not as funny as the first one. The only reason to watch this sequel is for Eddie Murphy, but all in all its okay.
They get in fistfights again, they still treat eachother like dirt, Eddie does "Roxanne" again, Nolte shoots at the guy holding a gun against Eddie's head again, another redneck bar, the same "sky blue Cadillac", the list goes on and on. Never have I seen a sequel so desperate to cling to its predecessor as this one. And sequels are NOTORIOUS for clinging to their predecessors ("American Pie 2" and "American Wedding" anyone?). It has its moments, but trouble is you've seen most of them before when they were still fresh and original. Worth renting if you're a fan of the original, but certainly not a "must-own".
this sequel to 48 Hours has a much darker tone than the original.it'smore violent,with probably even more very strong language.there is abit less comedy,but the comic bits are a bit funnier than in the firstone.the action is thorough the roof in this one.it's much moreexciting.i liked the storyline more.it's more developed and a bit morecomplex.the plot isn't that original,but the movie is well executed.themovie is a bit too formulaic at times though.Eddie Murphy gets to showa little of his impression talent in this one.the dialogue,while prettygood for the most part,is at times overdone and a bit of astretch.overall,i think this movie is pretty decent,but not quite asgood as the first one.for me,Another 48 hours is a 6/10.
This movie just has it all, comedy; great, fast-paced action and amoderately solid story. This is the kind of movie which you should seewithyour friends on a Friday-night, with a great bowl of pop-corn. The actors,such as Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy (the original 48 Hours team) have agreat chemistry between them and their combination of action and fun workswell for the film. The movie is very funny and you'll have a hard time notenjoying it, with it good soundtrack and quite original, cool scenes (suchas the bus-scene). I would like to mark Andrew Divoff's performance asCherry Ganz, one of the biking psycho-killers that Murphy and Nolte areafter. Divoff really scared the crap out of me with his wild, fierce,hyperportrayal of Cherry Ganz, who also contributes to alot of killings andviolence shown in this film. People who say that 48 Hours is the"untouchable original" are wrong because the sequel was made by the samedirector who's style you immediately recognise in this picture. Another 48Hours is as good as the original and is doubtless a highly entertainingfilm!
I found this movie amusing Christian Bale does a great job and as you will see drops a lot of weight as he did in The Machinist which is impressive, in all this movie felt like being stuck in a awful nightmare but for the viewer is a good thing, i recommend it.
I saw this movie on UPN a few years ago and I found it to be one of thebetter sequels I have seen in a long time. It may not be as good as 48 HRS.,but it is better than most sequels. The formula of the first movie may havebeen done to death by the time this came out in 1990, though screenwritersJohn Fasano, Jeb Stuart, and Larry Gross are still able to make the storyseem somewhat fresh and original.In ANOTHER 48 HRS., Reggie Hammond(once again excellently played by EddieMurphy) and Jack Cates (Nick Nolte) must once again team up to find amysterious drug dealer known as the Ice Man. Much gunfire ensues in thisbetter than expected sequel that proves as long as a sequel has the directorof the original, it always is good. Recommended for fans of the original.***
When I was little and saw the first 48 Hours, I thought Eddie Murphylooked pretty scrawny in that suit and that, upon seeing the sequel, helooked a lot more fashionable. Then I realized he was wearing the samesuit throughout this movie (I guess he was in a lot better shape).Other than considering this film to be a fairly entertaining rehash ofthe first, I guess that's my review.Although I must mention that if someone were to fire a Desert Eaglehandgun as close to their face as Andrew Divoff does in the final actof this film, he would probably burn his cheek and deafen himself...but I guess that's just part of Walter Hill's bombastic direction.
da first half of da movie was funny filled with action pack scenes but i didn't no what happen 2 da second part this movie was on its way 2 being a classic 4 me what happen toward da 2nd half is something i will never know

Another 48 Hours provides much entertainment and if your a fan of Eddie Murphy, I would recommend you giving this one a try.
Though it's nice to see Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy back together, the motivation is woefully lacking in director Walter Hill's follow-up to the 1982 action-comedy. Apart from a few engaging setpieces, everyone goes through the motions for a big paycheck. "Another 48 HRS." lives up to its title - derivative in the worst sense.
"Another 48 Hours", the sequel to the smash hit "48 Hours", againdirected by Walter Hill is a sort of letdown. Again, Nick Nolte (whoplays Jack Cates) is forced to team up with a hardened criminal (EddieMurphy as Reggie Hammond, who owes his fame to the first film, one thathelped make him a movie star) for "another" 48 hours in order to trackdown a drug dealer named "The Iceman". This time, Reggie is nearing theend of prison term and is therefore hesitant on "helping" out his oldbuddy. And "The Iceman" seems to know a thing or two about both ofthem.While it's nice to see the duo together again after so many years, thestory is too simplistic and lackluster. On the music front though,composer James Horner, who created the score to the first film too,develops and explores further the suitable theme he created for theaforementioned first film. All in all, a letdown but still nice towatch Murphy and Nolte team up again - 6 out of 10.
Eddie Murphy does a good job with a bad script. Nick Nolte doesn't haveitin this movie at all! The plot was just dumb, there trying to get theIceman! They shouldn't have made a sequel and what's worse is that itseemsmore like a remake of the original. If it wasn't for Murphy I would likeiteven less. I give it a 5/10.
She's the only reason to watch but I only get to see split second of her nice boobies! Otherwise, the plot makes no sense, Eddie Murphy tries hard and fails to be funny with his Sony walkman high pitched karoake routine, Nick Nolte sounds like he has lung cancer and the constant bickering between Nolte and Murphy is just plain dumb. It's like watching the prelude to a wrestling match. It is even admitted in the film that the bar scene fight is a tired old cliche! Just for that one second of Page Leong, this flick is worth watching. Skip the rest.
Why didnt Reggie recognize the Iceman (Detective Keyhoe) in the first movie...In the first movie, Reggie was in the precinct quite often, why didnt he recognize the Iceman then??????I like this movie, but Reggie was the only one who knew what the Iceman looked like and the Iceman worked right next to Nolte?? his friend??...it is just a huge hole in the plot, but I did find the movie fun
Here, the sequel to 48 Hours which catapulted Eddie Murphy to stardom in 1990 does not quite recapture the magic of the first movie. Sure, the action is loud and sometimes hilarious as when Reggie Hammond, ex-Con, tells the people in the nightclub, "Anyone else want a limp?" This is just after he shoots a huge wrestler type bad guy who was going to attack him right in the left kneecap. I liked the action scene with the creepy shootout in the seedy San Francisco Chinatown hotel where the dynamic duo track down the long haired hippie like biker assassins. There is a twist, of course, in fact there is a double twist to the tale. The main culprit called the "Ice-man", who is a big time drug dealer, turns out to be someone very close to suspended Police Inspector Cates played by Nick Nolte. Nolte looks a bit old and haggard in this movie. He really needs plastic surgery and Botox if he wants to play any more lead roles. No love interest, just the crazy buddy-buddy antic of the 2 unlikely heroes. watch it when you are bored and have nothing better to do. Enjoy! By Dr. Michael Lim The Travelling Gourmet
Hey, i like nick nolte, but Eddie Murphy shines here in spit of a script that is trying to give equality to both actors here. Not that the script is bad. On the contrary, I liked it better than a lot of other reviewers. I was tempted to give it 5 stars, but with thefviolence and lauguage, 4 is my max.
I saw 48 Hrs. a little while back, it was a fun action movie with somedecent comedic elements to it as well thanks to Eddie Murphy. So whileI was renting some movies, I decided to see the sequel, Another 48 Hrs.I was curious where they would take the story and if Eddie Murphy stillhad it. Unfortunately, this is where Eddie's career was going down hilland Nick Nolte's was doing just fine. The only problem I had with thisfilm is that it seemed like it was just an attempt to get more money,it was still a fun sequel though, it's definitely worth a look. Eventhough it was predictable, but once you've seen a lot of action movies,you've almost seen them all, you know? But Another 48 Hrs. has comedy,action, and our favorite team back. Eddie Murphy could have beenfunnier, but it's all good with this action packed sequel.Jack is back and he's fighting a criminal named the Iceman who justkeeps disappearing before he can get to him. It's getting so bad thatJack will loose his job over this and possibly go to jail for missingmoney that he's been accused of taking. He needs the street smartReggie once again who is in jail still for a crime he claims he didn'tcommit. But it's hard when they are fighting since Jack hasn't visitedReggie in a while, but they work together to find the Iceman, but theydiscover that one of the men that works with Jack just might be a badcop.Anothre 48 Hrs. is fun, but I think it could have had more comedy. Butlike I said, unfortunately Eddie Murphy's career was going down hill atthe point where this sequel was made. But I loved the scene where Jackgets into a bar fight and Reggie has to help him out, I loved how hewas pointing the gun at one of the fighters, and the guy calls Reggie'sbluff with the gun, but Reggie shoots his knee to prove to him.Unrealistic, but funny on Eddie Murphy's part. Another 48 Hrs. is wortha look, it has really cool action scenes and all in all, it's a goodaction movie. Let's just hope that Eddie's ego will calm down,hopefully he'll get more good roles in the future.5/10
It's a good thing that director Walter Hill has waited 8 years before makinga sequel of the original "48 hrs." If he had released this film immediatelyafter the first one, it would have become a flop. The reason is becauseboth films are very much alike. "Another 48 hrs." hasn't got anything newto offer; it's an almost exact copy of the first one. And that's preciselywhy they waited so long before making this sequel.Nothing really changed actually. There's Nick Nolte who plays the samecigarette-smoking and alcohol-addicted tough-guy cop forced to team togetherwith Eddy Murphy who takes up his part as the noisy, bad-mouth andknow-it-all convict-character again. Just like in the first film, it's thechemistry between these two actors that makes "Another 48 hrs." reallyworth-watching. And just like in the first film, the only decent actingcomes from Nick Nolte and Eddy Murphy while the rest of the cast is merelybelow average.Once more the action scenes are great to watch. This is a good thing,because it makes you forget about the weak script. The dialogues are funny,but they're overloaded again with harsh language. Some might find thisannoying; I honestly thought it became funny after a while.The ending is pretty weak and predictable, but on the whole "Another 48hrs." is almost as good as its predecessor and good waste of time; notmoney.

Jack tries to convince him to help clear his name andfind the Ice Man, but Reggie says he won't help unless he gives him the$500,000 that Jack has been holding on to. Jack refuses unless Reggie helps him......One of those sequels that were made in the late eighties, earlynineties when the stars power was dwindling, and the original was quitesuccessful.Thankfully this isn't the dog you've been led to believe, and to befair, it's a lot more exciting than the original. They have tried torelate both films by making one of the bikers the brother of one of thepeople who were killed in the first one, but this is all about thestars.The script is good, and Nolte really stands against Murphy, who waseasily one of the biggest stars in the world at the time. Set pieces are good, the plot can be a little incoherent at times, butit hurtles along at a good enough pace, you really forget that thechief bad guy is named after a Marvel character.If it were made before Harlem Nights, it would probably have hadsuccess like BHC 2, but one feels that Murphys ego was partially toblame.A fun movie.
