Und wieder 48 Stunden: Directed by Walter Hill. With Eddie Murphy, Nick Nolte, Brion James, Kevin Tighe. Jack Cates once again enlists the aid of ex-con Reggie Hammond – this time to take down The Iceman, a ruthless drug lord operating in the San Francisco bay area.

“Another 48 Hrs. (1990) was another sequel. During the 80u0026#39;s any movie that made the slightest of profits made a sequel. For one reason only, to make even more money. However many producers never made another dime off of the momentum of the previous film and were stuck with a sequel that cost two or three times as much as the original film, Another 48 Hrs. was a prime example. The only reason films that produced multiple sequels raked in the dough was the films were cheaply made, low overhead means more potential for a profit. When you pour millions into a movie and expect to make a buck, two out of three times youu0026#39;re going to lose your shirt. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie has a u0026quot;rushed into productionu0026quot; feel. I felt the same way after watching Scary Movie 2. The director was given what he had to work with. I canu0026#39;t fault Walter Hill because he made a pretty watchable movie. The problem was this film didnu0026#39;t need a sequel. The end results are a remake of the first movie. No more, no less. This film was made during the peak of Eddie Murphyu0026#39;s over exposure period. Like so many actors, he was a victim of his own excess. Nick Nolte seemed to be going through the motions whilst Eddie Murphy had that u0026quot;look at meu0026quot; thing going.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall itu0026#39;s not a bad movie. But if youu0026#39;re expecting something different then look elsewhere. Maybe the filmmakers should have watched the first movie again before they wrote the script. It would have helped a bit. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRecommended for fans of the first film.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eB”
