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 Hunter's 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 Brock's gun can't be found.

An early draft of the screenplay was shown in synopsis form in the book "The Films of Eddie Murphy" by Edward Gross. It revealed some interesting details that didn't make it into the final film. Details such as Jack being in a new relationship with a female cop, who later says she was willing to plant a gun at the racetrack to clear his name. As well as Reggie buying a gun on the street, which he would have carried throughout the film. Also Jack's new Cadillac would have suffered the same fate as Reggie's Porsche. This prompted Reggie to make a joke about where Jack got the car alarms installed. See more »

Here we go again! Jack Cates(Nick Nolte) and Reggie Hammond(Eddie Murphy) are back together, only this time, the things get more extreme. In "Another 48 Hours", Cates and Hammond go after a man known only as th "Ice Man". Not only that, there's an inside man in the police force helping him out. Things go bad for Hammond when his car gets blown away, was shot at when he was in the prison bus. What's even worse, one of the killers is the brother of Ganz(The killer from the first movie who stole Cates' gun). Unlike the first one, there were some biker action. I liked the part when the biker went right through the movie screen. Anyone could mistake that for 3D. There was more shooting. This one has a little more carnage than the first I should say. It was funny when Reggie finally took the lighter from Cates after he was shot. Nothing seems to change in that movie, the fun factor was still there, and the comedy was there as well. Enjoy! 4 out of 5 stars!
