"48Hrs" is Eddie Murphy's first movie, but do not expect anything like "Dr. Doolittle". If you don't remember, in the 80s Murphy was a foul mouthed comedian. His first movies were mostly 80s action movies, with a lot of gratuitus sex and violence. "48 Hrs" is about a killer and theif Gantz who escapes from prison and gets back to San Francisco to reclaim his money from his last job. Cop Nick Nolte springs Gantz's last partner, Hammond (Eddie Murphy) to find the money and catch Gantz. Nolte is always in a bad mood, he is just as foul mouthed and rascist as Murphy. But there banter is funny in a 'man's man' kind of way. This movie is very violent, but not too gory. Murphy is certainly the life of this party, but it is a Walter Hill movie, so the action is the name of this game.
