Storyline

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. Jack finds a picture that proves that the Ice Man has put a price on the head of Reggie Hammond, who is scheduled to be released from prison on the next day. Jack tries to convince Reggie to help him clear his name and find the Ice Man, but Reggie says he won't help unless Jack gives Reggie the $500,000 that Jack has been holding on to for Reggie. Jack refuses to give Reggie the money unless Reggie helps him. After the bus that is transporting Reggie away from the prison is forced to crash by two bikers and Jack gets shot by the same two bikers, Jack forces Reggie to help him by having the hospital release Reggie into his custody.

Quotes

Tyrone Burroughs: What's the fucking difference who pulled the trigger? The cops were getting too close, that's how the man does business, *business*, not personal. You know you two fucking hillbillies should learn the difference.
Cherry Ganz: Business? Yeah.
[shoots Burroughs in the ear]
Cherry Ganz: That's business too.
Tyrone Burroughs: [holding his ear in pain but beginning to laugh] You happy now, asshole?
[laughs]
Tyrone Burroughs: That still doesn't change the job! You got to kill Reggie Hammond.

A bit far fetched, yet entertaining
5 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

I'll be the first to admitt that the sequel probably isn't as good as the original, but for some reason i get much more enjoyment from watching it. Perhaps it's due to the fact that Murphy gets to show off more of his comic talents then he does in the original,but whatever the case i found this to be an enjoyable flick which unfairly recieved some harsh critisim (in my opinon). The basic plot for Another 48 Hours is that Detective Jack Cates(Nolte)has for years been attempting to track down a underground criminal only known as the iceman. Then when Cates finds out the iceman wants his old buddy Reggie Hammond(Murphy) dead, he enlists his help to bring the iceman down (because apparently Hammond is the only person ever to have seen the Iceman). A few notes, at the end of the original film, Hammond only had 6 months left to go on his sentence. However since then his sentence has been changed to 6 years because he apparently robbed the prision payrole(hey i'm not making this stuff up). Ganz's(the main bad guy, from the original 48 hours) brother is one of the bad guys who has been hired by the iceman to kill Hammond and Cates. The sequel is more comic-like than the original,and truth be known some parts of it's storyline are flawed (we never really know the real story behind Hamond being detained for another 6 years)and the Jack Cates character is more lukewarm then the original. But still, Another 48 Hours provides much entertainment and if your a fan of Eddie Murphy i would recommend you giving this one a try.
