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.

I knew you'd be waiting for me out here.
You think I'm happy about being here think again. I'm supposed to have money in my pocket and a new life and the last thing I wanted was to be hooked up to your dumb ass again and you? You're about two steps away from where I was yesterday so you're not running shit. I'm gonna lay it out straight Jack: I don't like you and I don't trust you.
O.K. cut the bullshit ok? Give me something I can use.
The Iceman? The Iceman bought your house.
Now God damn it! ...

This movie just has it all, comedy; great, fast-paced action and a moderately solid story. This is the kind of movie which you should see with your 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 a great chemistry between them and their combination of action and fun works well for the film. The movie is very funny and you'll have a hard time not enjoying it, with it good soundtrack and quite original, cool scenes (such as the bus-scene). I would like to mark Andrew Divoff's performance as Cherry Ganz, one of the biking psycho-killers that Murphy and Nolte are after. Divoff really scared the crap out of me with his wild, fierce, hyper portrayal of Cherry Ganz, who also contributes to alot of killings and violence shown in this film. People who say that 48 Hours is the "untouchable original" are wrong because the sequel was made by the same director who's style you immediately recognise in this picture. Another 48 Hours is as good as the original and is doubtless a highly entertaining film!
