Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

The boys are back in town, but they're wearing their carbon-paper suits in this frantic but not nearly as funny sequel to the action-comedy hit. The first time around, the combination of Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte had the element of surprise going for it: Who expected these two to have chemistry? This time, chemistry is virtually all they have in a veritable rehash of the first film. What plot there is has to do with Nolte's needing Murphy (who is just out of jail) to help him clear his own name and save his job on the police force. Director Walter Hill is back in place, but this time the script is the work of action hack Jeb Stuart and the movie barely gives Murphy room to unleash his comic riffs; when he does, we're expecting them (though he's still entertaining). --Marshall Fine

MAA-AAN! It really grinds my gears when a movie develops a bad rep upon release an' e'ybody an' they mother jus' assumes it's bad even before they see it. I hadn't heard hardly ANY positive reaction to this movie, but decided to be me an' check it out for myself. Now I like jus' 'bout e'ything Eddie Murphy did between the early 1980s an' the early to mid-1990s. I think he's a very talented actor an' comedian (though his script choices as of late show a sign of poor judgment) an' to see him reprise the role of Reggie Hammond, the role that turned him into a Hollywood superstar (sure as hell uppin' his bankability, 'ya notice how in this one Eddie's top-billed, whereas in the original Nolte was?), I was pretty psyched. Is' several years later an' a lot has changed; Cates stopped drinkin' an' seems a lil' more laid-back an' easy going because of it, he's trackin' a mysterious druglord called 'The Ice Man' that the rest'a the department doesn't believe exists, an' Reggie is FINALLY about to get outta the pen after servin' an extended five-year sentence for robbin' the payroll (which he CLAIMS he didn't do). While trackin' the Ice Man, Cates discovers that somehow Reggie is involved an' the people he's after have a hit planned. Soooooo with Reggie bein' the only link to a seemingly-unsolveable crime, Cates is standin' there smilin' on the mornin' of Reggie's release from custody. Jus' not to a real receptive friend.
I really don't see how people can say that is 'more sequel than remake', 'cause it seems 'ta me like an OBVIOUS extension of the first.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of a remake than a sequel March 27 2001
By C.H.
Format:DVD
Jack Cates (Nick Nolte) has been tracking an elusive druglord named the Iceman for the last few years. During a botched arrest attempt he discovers that the Iceman has arranged a hit on old friend Reggie Hammond (Eddie Murphy) who's about to be released from prison. Cates is certain to face the loss of his badge if he doesn't wrap this up, so he turns to Hammond to help him bring in the Iceman. Three sadistic bikers (hired by the Iceman) are also hunting the pair, one of whom is the revenge hungry brother of the psycho Cates killed in the first film. Nolte and Murphy still click, and the movie is never boring, but this is basically a rehash with minor changes made here and there. We revisit their fistfights, another redneck bar, another hotel shootout, and so on. One plus is that the profanity has been toned down (at least by Murphy's standards) and there is some exciting gunplay amidst all the shattering glass you would find in a Walter Hill film. Hill might have turned in a much better film had he veered away from all this familar territory.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unusual bitter Eddie Murphy June 2 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Some critics feel that this is a far less superior than the original. I strongly disagree. The first one has the edge as far as comedy goes, but I feel the storyline in the sequel is more interesting. It seems like every time you assume something will happen in this movie, it doesn't, or the opposite does. Usually sequel's that are done eight years apart like this are terrible. But because Walter Hill directed this, and because of the great chemistry between Nolte and Murphy, this is an exception.
It's kind of odd to see Murphy play a bitter character. In fact the only time Murphy is in a good mood is when he is around girls. His character was far less bitter in the original than in the sequel. I thought Murphy and Nolte played their roles to perfection, as well as the other actors, especially Cherry Ganz, Luther's brother.
Ignore all the critics who have a negative opinion about this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars the boys are back in town Oct. 9 2001

Format:VHS Tape
they are back. nick nolte and eddie murphy return in this smash hit sequal another 48 hrs. this time around a killer known as the iceman ganza's brother from the first 48 hrs is doing the dirty work and nick nolte is the only cop on the force who thinks he exists. just like before nick and eddie get 2 days to track this guy down. not to many people like this movie,but i thought it was a very good sequal. of course the first is better but this one is very good to. how can you not like it we have a bus that flips over 17 times with eddie murphy in it,eddie murphy holding up another redneck bar,and the ending is very good as well. rated r for strong violence,strong language,and some nudity

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad Sequel! Bad, BAD Sequel! Aug. 25 2003
Format:DVD
They get in fistfights again, they still treat eachother like dirt, Eddie does "Roxanne" again, Nolte shoots at the guy holding a gun against Eddie's head again, another redneck bar, the same "sky blue Cadillac", the list goes on and on. Never have I seen a sequel so desperate to cling to its predecessor as this one. And sequels are NOTORIOUS for clinging to their predecessors ("American Pie 2" and "American Wedding" anyone?). It has its moments, but trouble is you've seen most of them before when they were still fresh and original. Worth renting if you're a fan of the original, but certainly not a "must-own".

Should never have been made. A deflated carbon copy of the original. Inaugerated Murphy's early 90's slide. Murphy and Nolte can barely be bothered to show up for this nonsense.

This is a terrible movie. Not funny, boring, annoying. Eddie Murphy's worst film. Look at a wall for 2 hours instead.
