A bit far fetched, yet entertaining, 5 January 2002
Author: foley1-1

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.
