Critic Reviews for Another 48 HRS.
After a few films unworthy of his talent, Eddie Murphy returns to form with what he plays best: the fast-talking survivor in a hostile world. Nick Nolte also shines in a role tailored to his shambling frame.June 12, 2018 | Full Review…
It's a minor pleasure to see Murphy slightly subdued. What seems more problematic is the virtual exaltation of Dirty Harry vigilantism, the storm trooper mentality and behavior on Nolte's part that the film breezily takes for granted ...June 24, 2015 | Full Review…
Walter Hill, who also directed the first film, surely recognizes the hollowness of what he's doing here. He also hasn't had a hit since "48 HRS.," which no doubt explains why he's once again tilling these charred fields.June 24, 2015 | Full Review…
The key words here are lazy and contrived.June 24, 2006 | Full Review…

Mr. Murphy has two comic moments, which aren't enough for a feature-length film. Among other things, he has developed some of the same maddening mannerisms that marked Frank Sinatra's performances in his Rat Pack movies.May 20, 2003 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for Another 48 HRS.
Jun 04, 2016Basically the same as the first, Nothing new or memorable, A nice twist at the end but that's it, Some ok shootouts and the onscreen chemistry between Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy was just as good as the first, Maybe critics were abit harsh but it is literally just the same for most of the movie.Jamie C Super Reviewer
Jul 04, 2015Everything about it reeks of a studio mandated sequel . . . complete with retreading the first film, while gutting everything that made it edgy and exciting.Alec B Super Reviewer
Jul 31, 2013Murphy and Nolte are together again for Another 48 HRS., a thrilling action packed adventure. As Reggie's prison release date approaches Ganz's bother comes looking for revenge, but detective Cates gets to him first and enlists his help in finding the mysterious crime figure known as the Iceman; who put out the hit on Reggie. The plot's a little less contrived this time, and the storytelling's fairly solid. Additionally, the action's especially well-shot and adds a lot of intensity to the film. Featuring a stronger cast and more action, Another 48 HRS. outdoes the original.Dann M Super Reviewer
May 27, 2012not a comparison on the first and sadly the whole twist at the end is a bit of a slap in the face. murphy is only funny in patchesBrendan N Super Reviewer
