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.

Solid Entertainment! Bravo Andrew Divoff!
6 January 2002 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

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!
