Another 48 Hrs. (1990)

Walter Hill directs Eddie Murphy, Nick Nolte and Brion James in this belated sequel where Reggie Hammond is finally released only to discover everyone wants him dead.

A tired beat for beat retread. The action sequences are certainly bigger but less nail biting. The jokes are tired and repetitive. Every other scene Murphy recaps us on the bad day he’s having… a patter that wasn’t that all that funny the first time. Nolte looks bored as fuck. Done for the paychecks but destructive enough to fill an evening. At least James Horner’s sinuous score is still in place.
