      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Even the return of Eddie Murphy, Nick Nolte, and director Walter Hill can't hide the lazy, patchwork quality of Another 48 Hrs.

      Bob Thomas Associated Press After a few films unworthy of his talent, Eddie Murphy returns to form with what he plays best: the fast-talking survivor in a hostile world. Nick Nolte also shines in a role tailored to his shambling frame. Jun 12, 2018 Full Review Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader It's a minor pleasure to see Murphy slightly subdued. What seems more problematic is the virtual exaltation of Dirty Harry vigilantism, the storm trooper mentality and behavior on Nolte's part that the film breezily takes for granted ... Jun 24, 2015 Full Review Peter Rainer Los Angeles Times Walter Hill, who also directed the first film, surely recognizes the hollowness of what he's doing here. He also hasn't had a hit since "48 HRS.," which no doubt explains why he's once again tilling these charred fields. Jun 24, 2015 Full Review Mitchell Beaupre Paste Magazine Hill exercises his action muscles with numerous sequences of vehicular mayhem that get the blood pumping well enough, but the plot feels decidedly like something written on the fly that lazily rehashes what worked in the original. Rated: 5/10 Sep 29, 2023 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Vile. [Full review in Spanish] Nov 24, 2022 Full Review James Kendrick Q Network Film Desk It looks good-slick and polished in a way that the rougher, more engaging 48 Hrs. was not-but it also feels rote, by the numbers, a cash-in. Rated: 2/4 Sep 29, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Trenaway E This movie was good, I have no clue why it has low ratings! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/01/24 Full Review Dave C More of the same as in the first movie, just worse… and that seemed a tall order! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/07/24 Full Review Steve D Fans of the first will have fun. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/28/24 Full Review Alec B Everything about it reeks of a studio mandated sequel, complete with retreading the first film while gutting everything that made it edgy and exciting. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/13/23 Full Review Andre G This one is better then the first in my opinion. He's funnier and there's a lot more action too. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/21/23 Full Review Jacob B Some of Eddie Murphy and Nick Nokte's chemistry is still there and there are some good stunts but on the whole, Another 48 Hrs. is an unnecessary sequel that exists solely to make money. It's not funny, it's not thrilling and worst of all, it's just plain boring. I was more entertained by Murphy's family-friendly phase from the 2000's than I was by this cash grab. Getting overshadowed by the Beverly Hills Cop and Lethal Weapon movies certainly didn't help since now this sequel would have more than one tough act to follow. Stick with the first film, guys.
