48 Hrs is a far cry from anything that Murphy has done recently. This is his debut on the big screen after doing stand-up, and it's actually possibly one of his best performances. Alongside Nick Nolte, 48 Hrs simply tells the tale of an unlikely partnership between cop and crook as they try to capture two vicious cop killers.
The characteristics of Nick and Eddie are completely seperate here as Murphy provides a brash, smooth talking dapper attitude towards Nolte's more rough-edged personality. But amazingly they work perfectly together, and although they don't get along at first in the film, you notice the chemistry between them getting stronger as the movie progresses.
Featuring such classic scenes as the redneck western bar, 48 Hrs is a highly entertaining thriller. Worth purchasing indeed.
