Oddball cop and tough guy, Jack Cates is the only survivor of a cop shooting and in hunting down the murderer collects Reggie Hammond from jail for 48 hours. Hammond is oddly motivated to help. The killer is searching for his stash of cash. Cates and Hammond who have the Black-white, cop-crook thing to work out make surprisingly good partners as they navigate through the city looking for their suspect. Written by

When a tough cop has a cool convict as a partner and 48 hrs to catch a killer, a lot of funny things can happen in . . . 48 HRS. [Australia Theatrical]

states in his 2008 Biography special that his character's name was originally scripted to be "Willie Biggs." He had concerns with that name as it sounded too much like a "Hollywood, made-up, black guy's name."

Reggie was a compromise by having just the first name be a typical "Hollywood, made-up, black guy name." See more
Throughout the whole movie, Ganz is holding Luther's girlfriend Rosie hostage. She is even with Ganz on the bus when Luther comes on board to give Ganz the money. However, after Ganz shoots Luther and the bus chase begins, she is no longer seen. Not even in the interior shots of the bus as Ganz is shooting at Jack and Reggie. Later on Keyhoe tells Jack that the bus was abandoned in Chinatown but does not mention Rosie. From the point that Luther is shot until the end, there is no indication of whether or not Ganz killed Rosie or let her go. See more
