Product Description

Nick Nolte, Eddie Murphy. As unlikely a comedy team as you will ever see, hard-nosed San Francisco cop Jack Cates springs convicted robber Reggie Hammond out of prison for two days to help him catch his former partners in 48 Hrs. (1982/97 min.). Now accepting that Hammond's streetwise methods work better than strict police procedure, Cates team up with Hammond again in the hilarious sequel Another 48 Hrs. (1990/93 min.). Color/R/widescreen.

48 HRS.
Before the action-oriented "buddy movie" formula settled into place in the 1980s and 1990s with the Lethal Weapon films, Walter Hill's 48 HRS. presented a much more irreverent and politically incorrect version of the genre. Eddie Murphy made an auspicious film debut alongside veteran Nick Nolte's consummate performance as a worn cop. Murphy plays a convict on a two-day furlough from prison to help capture his former partner (James Remar). The intense animosity between his character and Nolte's impatient detective is rude and violent--albeit in a comic way--and the film's racist and sexist banter is so ubiquitous that some viewers might be turned off. (This early, raw Murphy is not the Murphy of The Nutty Professor.) Then again, sometimes deliberate overkill is funny in itself, which is certainly closer to Hill's intention. There are a couple of scenes for the ages in this film, especially Murphy's single-handed shutdown of the action in a redneck bar. --Tom Keogh

Another 48 HRS.
The boys are back in town, but they're wearing their carbon-paper suits in this frantic but not nearly as funny sequel to the action-comedy hit. The first time around, the combination of Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte had the element of surprise going for it: Who expected these two to have chemistry? This time, chemistry is virtually all they have in a veritable rehash of the first film. What plot there is has to do with Nolte's needing Murphy (who is just out of jail) to help him clear his own name and save his job on the police force. Director Walter Hill is back in place, but this time the script is the work of action hack Jeb Stuart and the movie barely gives Murphy room to unleash his comic riffs; when he does, we're expecting them (though he's still entertaining). --Marshall Fine

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Double Feature August 1, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was a bit suspect of two movies on one disc but after viewing both flicks on my Aquos flat-screen, I must admit, they are damn good transfers. This was perhaps Eddy Murphy's best work and they both represent the flavor of 1980s movie making in Hollywood. Anamorphic Widescreen is the best for 16x9 TV viewing, these films won't disappoint any fan of the Nolte/Murphy genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars anamorphic widescreen May 29, 2007
this double feature DVD improves on the original DVD letterboxed video with anamorphic widescreen. video is a little soft but I remember the theatrical picture was a little soft so this is acceptable. these are good action movies but why the disrespect in not releasing these movies with remastered video/audio, features and commentary? these movies were at least as important as Beverly Hills Cops and Trading Places to a young Eddie Murphy's career and Beverly Hills Cop got the box set treatment.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great pairing. October 12, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The popular 80s films crime films. In The first film Nick Nolte plays a cop, Jack and Eddie Murphy plays, Reggie a convict currently serviing 6 months for theft. Jack gets Reggie out of prison for the weekend to recapture Ganz (James Remar) an escapee who recently escaped Prison with the aid of his Indian pal, Billy Bear (Sonny Landham). Jack quickly learns it is hard to be a cop and a warden and remain a good boyfriend to Elaine (Annette O'Toole). A friendship develops between Jack & Reggie that is irrevocable. Ganz is a cop killer and unmatched murderer. Can this oddball pairing get their man? Part two is more of the same wise cracks, racial slurs naked girls as Jack tries to catch the nefarious Iceman. Not a lot of guess work in either film. But it is good fun. Neither have special features but, both are Subtitled & CC'd in English for thees deaf.

5.0 out of 5 stars 48 Hours and Another 48 Hours May 25, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy were great together in both 48 Hours movies. They both knew how to stop the bad guys and they also fought with each other. My favorite scene was when Murphy acted like a cop in the cowboy bar in the first 48 Hours movie. Walter Hill is a great director who also directed Extreme Prejudice and Red Heat.
