3.0 out of 5 stars When Murphy didn't need the fat suit..., 10 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Another 48 Hours [DVD] [1990] (DVD)
San Francisco cop Jack Cates has been after an unidentified drug kingpin who calls himself the "Ice Man".

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 him to help clear his name and find the Ice Man, but Reggie says he won't help unless he gives him the $500,000 that Jack has been holding on to.

Jack refuses unless Reggie helps him......

One of those sequels that were made in the late eighties, early nineties when the stars power was dwindling, and the original was quite successful.

Thankfully this isn't the dog you've been led to believe, and to be fair, it's a lot more exciting than the original. They have tried to relate both films by making one of the bikers the brother of one of the people who were killed in the first one, but this is all about the stars.

The script is good, and Nolte really stands against Murphy, who was easily one of the biggest stars in the world at the time.

Set pieces are good, the plot can be a little incoherent at times, but it hurtles along at a good enough pace, you really forget that the chief bad guy is named after a Marvel character.

If it were made before Harlem Nights, it would probably have had success like BHC 2, but one feels that Murphys ego was partially to blame.

A fun movie.
