Im not a video buff but when I used to shop here, I bought a few of my favorite movies on DVD. This was one of them, its' not remastered or anything its' simply that DVDs' last waaaaaay longer than VHS tapes. Paramount Pictures' '48 HRS.' came at the right time and in the right form, there were BIG reasons it made over $80m. at the box office in no time. SNL star Eddie Murphy who had never done a picture, was picked up by Walter Hill at age 21 to star along side veteran actor Nick Nolte in this, the kind of movie nobody had ever seen before. It was a low budget, very basic film with a few mistakes like scenes that were filmed for the middle or end of the movie were spliced into the beginning, but '48 HRS.' started the entire craze that has now become something all actors and filmmakers can rely on..the scenerio that is. Detective Jack Cates (Nolte) is the sloppy, alcohol-chugging and chain-smoking edgy cop, who gets a smooth-talking B.S. artist convict (Eddie Murphy) out of jail for 48 hours to hunt down a ruthless escape killer (A young James Remar) and his partner (former 70s' porn star Sonny Landham). Drenched with racial tention between the two, graphically foul language and a few nude women, the movie has a rough edge that is still admired today, 21 years later. I see these ads for movies like 'Bad Company' this and 'Bad Boys' that..hey, if you're a fan of the actors or just bored one night theres your movie but in reality they ssssuck. '48 HRS.' layed the groundwork, without which there would BE no 'Training Day', 'Rush Hour', 'Enemy of the State'...not the exact way they were made anyway. The intense 1982 comedy/drama began inspiring film and tv in less than a year in fact..1984's 'Beverly Hills Cop' which was originally written for Sylvester Stallone, became another spin-off of the '48 HRS.Read more ›

In order to appreciate this film fully, you hafta turn yourself back in time to 1982, an' try an' remember the political an' social mindset of the day. Then imagine watching '48 HRS.' an unabashed an' raucous cop thriller that breaks the very foundation of political correctness. Now how does that make you feel? If you say, sick to your stomach, then maybe you needa loosen your jock strap an' try it again. E'ybody knows the plot, the hard-drinkin', chain-smokin' San Francisco cop Jack Cates, played by Nick Nolte (who looks almost TOO comfortable in the role of a wasted, burn-out), is lookin' to put two recent prison escapees an' vicious cop killers away after he tried an' failed to apprehend them. In going over the case he comes across several members of their old gang an' decides to go talk to one'a the incarcerated ones. Here's where Eddie Murphy comes in. Reggie Hammond is the smooth an' dapper, fast-talking convict who convinces Cates to get him out of jail an' on the street to help him solve this case. Cates reluctantly does so, an' from there is' jus' the two of them together goin' from place to place, crook to crook, bar to bar, lead to lead, tryin' to keep from killing each other in the process. Cates is a rough-edged, semi-bigot with an apparent vendetta toward these crooks (though apparently jus' for stealing his gun), Reggie is the charming, jive-talking criminal, with a more obvious vendetta toward the crooks (they dropped the dime on him, got him locked up, an' are now tryin' to steal a half a million dollars of his hard-earned, er, um, hard-stolen cash). Both are on the same mission, but with two TOTALLY different personalities an' when they mix it up, oh, is' gunpowder. E'ybody talks about the scene with Murphy in the country-western bar playin' cop ("Alright listen up.Read more ›

Falling into the same genre as 'Beverly Hills Cop', 1982's '48 HRS.' takes the good-cop, bad-crook scene and transforms it to fit Eddie Murphy's talents on a different scale. Instead of chasing high-profile criminals as 'Detective Axel Foley', Murphy portrays a loud-mouth convict teamed up with a hardass detective Jack Cates. Nick Nolte's roll as this chain smoking, trash-talking, loveable sleezbag sort of shadows performances by John Wayne and Clint Eastwood...only in a new age. The low-flash scene is set in California, where Cates (Nolte) loses a battle with two escape conns along with his gun...leaving two more plain-clothed officers dead. The thing I think you need to remember when watching these movies is that the lead cops never dressed in uniform, and you'll see more covertable classic 70s' cars than marked squad cars. Otherwise, Nolte is the perfect grunge policeman who teams up with Reggie Hammond (Murphy) to catch a ruthless killer who Murphy once sided with. From the moment Nolte takes Murphy out of jail for 48 hours, you can sense the racial heat and explosive attitudes of the two. This proved to make for a perfect comedy, as Nolte and Murphy race to kill the killers without killing eachother. Murphy has a classic scene in a highly exaggerated country western bar, where the confederate flag is on every wall and "yee-haw!" is a common thing to hear. Murphy raises the roof of the bar in a hilarious scene that could only work with this guy. 'Another 48 HRS' 10 years later was a predicted mistake, instead I think the director should've considered remaking the original scene and plot, but using the flash and movie effects not available in 1982. Maybe put a better suit on Nolte or give'em a hotter car...Read more ›
