Blockbuster action-packed comedy about a streetwise convict who teams up with a cantankerous cop to track down two cold-blooded kill ers.
From the Back Cover
Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy make on of the most unusual an entertaining teams ever in Walter Hill's roller-coaster thriller, 48 Hours. Nolte is a rough-edged cop after two vicious cop-killers. He can't do it without the help of smooth and dapper Murphy, who is serving time for a half-million dollar robbery. This unlikely partnership trades laughs as often as punches as both pursue their separate goals: Nolte wants the villains; Murphy wants his money and some much-needed female companionship. Watch for Murphy's hilarious scene in a redneck country-western bar - you'll want to see it again and again.

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.
"Y'all Be Cool!"
The banter and situations concerning the characters are also gleefully un-PC. It'd be interesting to see what a studio and director would make of the same premise in these 'enlightened' times. Murphy's comic stage persona is less restrained here than it would be in later films, and the results are often shamefully funny.
Don't expect Shakespeare, there's far too much cursing and other unsavoury shenanigans going on for that; do expect a pacy and entertaining early example of the 'buddy thriller'.
A normal tail of crime and crooked law enforcement, its not far off the reality that really is going on today.
