It remains one of the better action-comedy buddy pictures you'll find.

One of the first buddy action movies, 48 Hrs. laid the ground work for the sub-genre that was at its best during the 1980's.

Although dated, there is a brute edginess to this popular slice of formula odd coupling.

All in all, a superior genre piece, if not the height of Hill's artistry.

The movie's story is nothing to write home about. It's pretty routine. What makes the movie special is how it's made. Nolte and Murphy are good, and their dialogue is good, too -- quirky and funny.

[It] is more memorable for its characters than for its high style, more a series of energetic scenes than a collection of handsome imagery. It has life, ferocity and humor in place of icy, stylized elegance, and that seems more than a fair trade.
