Storyline

With a pending old debt from the past and the genuine threat of losing his badge for good, the tough and gruff San Francisco police officer, Inspector Jack Cates, pushes his luck and turns to his reluctant former partner, Reggie Hammond. Having spent seven long years in jail after the events of 48 Hrs. (1982), Reggie is about to taste the air of freedom, when an attempt on his life drags him into a new circle of violence, as Jack is almost obsessively trying to prove that the elusive criminal mastermind known as the "Iceman" exists. But, this time, the odds are against the mismatched duo. Will Cates clear his name? Written by Nick Riganas

Quotes

Reggie: How much of my money did you spend?
Jack: Oh, about 25 grand. You said I could buy a new car.
Reggie: So where is it?
Jack: This *is* the new car!
Reggie: This looks like the same piece-of-shit sky blue Cadillac you had before!
Jack: Yeah, I bought the same make, model, year, color, everything the same. That's the way I like it. I get attached to things, Reggie!

Half-sequel, half-remake
10 May 2005 | by smatysiaSee all my reviews

I agree with most of the past commentators. This film is a half-sequel, half-remake. So many elements were simply copied from the original film. I'm sure the filmmakers considered this homage, but it comes off as a lack of ideas. And we won't even go into the monumental plot holes. Gigantic plot holes. Brobdingnagian plot holes. And while I hadn't previously noted the enormous amount of glass breaking, until reading the comments, yes, I'd have to say they made it more or less a motif of the film. Murphy and Nolte did reasonably well resurrecting their respective characters, and there were some truly funny moments, and truly snappy repartee. But it's not enough to save this one. If you liked the original film (and who didn't) you should probably see this one, just don't have high expectations for it.
