There are various instances of firearms shooting far more bullets than they carry in real life in the film. The most noticeable is during the nightclub shootout where first Willie Hickok then Reggie fire a combined 14 bullets from the same 6 shot revolver without reloading. See more »

Original workprint of Another 48 Hrs. was 145 minutes long. Movie was cut down to 120 minutes by director Walter Hill or Paramount studio for original planned theatrical summer release, but week before it was to be released Paramount cut additional 25 minutes out of the movie making the final theatrical version only about 93 minutes long. In total, about 50 minutes were deleted from original cut of the movie causing many plot holes and continuity mistakes. See more »
When I was little and saw the first 48 Hours, I thought Eddie Murphy looked pretty scrawny in that suit and that, upon seeing the sequel, he looked a lot more fashionable. Then I realized he was wearing the same suit throughout this movie (I guess he was in a lot better shape). Other than considering this film to be a fairly entertaining rehash of the first, I guess that's my review.
Although I must mention that if someone were to fire a Desert Eagle handgun as close to their face as Andrew Divoff does in the final act of this film, he would probably burn his cheek and deafen himself... but I guess that's just part of Walter Hill's bombastic direction.
