"For the past four years, San Francisco cop Jack Cates has been after an unidentified drug kingpin who calls himself the "Ice Man". At the Hunter's Point Raceway, Jack confronts Tyrone Burroughs and Arthur Brock. Jack kills Brock in self defense, but Burroughs escapes, and Jack is in danger of going to prison because Brock's gun can't be found. Jack finds a picture that proves that the Ice Man has put a price on the head of Reggie Hammond, who is scheduled to be released from prison on the next day. Jack tries to convince Reggie to help him clear his name and find the Ice Man, but Reggie says he won't help unless Jack gives Reggie the $500,000 that Jack has been holding on to for Reggie. Jack refuses to give Reggie the money unless Reggie helps him. After the bus that is transporting Reggie away from the prison is forced to crash by two bikers and Jack gets shot by the same two bikers, Jack forces Reggie to help him by having the hospital release Reggie into his custody. Reggie recognized one of the bikers as Richard "Cherry" Ganz, the brother of Albert Ganz, the escaped convict Jack killed years ago. Another 48 Hours provides much entertainment and if your a fan of Eddie Murphy, I would recommend you giving this one a try.
Another pointless sequel

"48 Hrs is the Vito Corleone of buddy cop movies. Another 48 Hrs is Fredo. What do you think made the first one a hit? It wasnt just Eddie and Nick's chemistry onscreen it was also fresh material to work with. Another 48 Hrs is just a tired retread of the first movie.
In this one Reggie Hammond(Eddie Murphy) is about to be released from jail. On his way out of prison, some biker punks shoot up his bus causing it to flip over several time. Nick's character is bent on catching a drug dealer by the name of Iceman and figures out that his case is tied in with Reggie's especially after the same people who shot at him, shot at Reggie too.
What ensues is a bunch of pointless bar brawls with stupid hicks and shoot outs with biker gang members. Eddie Murphy looks like he didnt want to be there even though I cant say the same for Nick Nolte. The movie has its moments but for the most part is kind of bland. The humor is forced and so is the chemistry between Murphy and Nolte. If you must get this movie get the two movie (48 Hrs/Another 48 HRS)on one disc deal that they have here on Amazon. At least it wont be a total lost. 48 Hrs gave birth to the buddy cop movies. Another 48 Hrs set them back a couple of years."
By The Numbers Sequel

"Another 48 Hrs. isn't as good a film as the oringial but it's still has it's moments. Eddie and Nick still have the chemistry as Reggie and Jack. The action seqeunces are upped a bit and the finale of the film is action pakced, althought this is one of the films that started Eddie down's fall and it shows in his performance. But for me the action sequences and the bar scene earn the film ** 1/2 stars"
