Walter Hill is perhaps the most unsung genre filmmaker of our time. "Another 48 Hrs." is far from his best work, but it's interesting to observe just how much Hill had changed as a director since the original. To put it bluntly, this film is a nasty piece of work - rife with sadistic violence and an unrepentant cynicism about the world. Recommended for action buffs who don't mind a movie that leaves a hangover.
Basically the first film remade with direct lifts from the original. The leads appears rushed, bored and very negative but the film was ruined by innumerable cuts which leave the film full of gaping wounds. Absolutely regrettable sequel that should have been great.
