An enjoyable classic action comedy!

"This sucks! A maniac gets ahold of my gun and runs all over the streets killin' people with it. So, instead of bein' where I oughta be, home in bed with my gal givin' her the high hard one, I'm out here doin' THIS shit: roamin' around the streets with an overdressed, charcoal-colored loser like you."

At first glance, 48 Hrs. probably appears somewhat outdated, relatively clichéd a... read more

A good movie

By now, I have seen almost all the movies starring Eddie Murphy (I think I miss only 4 movies). The weird thing is that I'm not even a huge fan of this guy but his movies very often come up on the various Dutch channels so I always end up checking them, out of sheer curiosity of boredom. Nowadays, he shows up in the most inane features and his career doesn't have much credibility. Still, the guy ... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- August 2014 (34 movies items)

" Netflix- 1hr. 36min First Viewing A solid buddy cop picture that, while boding a couple of strong lead turns, never really breaks the mold, and isn't aging particularly well."

"Katsottu: 4.2.2015, 2nd Watch, DVD Yhdessä 80-luvun toimintaklassikossa poliisi Jack Cates (Nick Nolte) tarvitsee vankilassa istuvan pikkurikollisen Reggie Hammondin (Eddie Murphy) apua vankikarkurin nappaamiseen, sillä Reggie on karkurin entinen rikoskumppani. Toiminta oli hyvää, vaikka sitä olisi toki voinut olla enemmänkin. Nolte ja Murphy ovat hyvä parivaljakko ja sivuosissa on mm. Walter Hillin vakionäyttelijä David Patrick Kelly. "

A good movie

“By now, I have seen almost all the movies starring Eddie Murphy (I think I miss only 4 movies). The weird thing is that I'm not even a huge fan of this guy but his movies very often come up on the various Dutch channels so I always end up checking them, out of sheer curiosity of boredom. Nowadays, he shows up in the most inane features and his career doesn't have much credibility. Still, the guy has made a few good movies, especially in the 80's, and this flick is definitely one of them. Basically, it is one of your typical buddy action flick with a tough cop (played by Nick Nolte) and a clueless civilian (played by Eddie Murphy). To be honest, the whole thing was not really original but they used very well the rules of the formula and the whole thing was just really entertaining and pret” read more

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"James Remar often went without any sleep before shooting his scenes in order to give bad-guy Ganz a more washed-out, psychotic look. The first scene at the police station, which begins at around the 20 minute mark, was apparently shot in a single take. It lasts 3 minutes, with no visible cuts. "
