ANOTHER 48 HOURS (1990) ***

Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy team up again in this belated sequel.  It’s not really all that funny, but there is a lot of action and the chemistry between the two stars is good.  This time they’re on the trail of sadistic drug dealing bikers and trying to take out a mysterious drug kingpin known as “The Ice Man”.  In the film’s best scene, the bikers try to kill Murphy on a prison bus, and it flips over “17 times”.  Nolte gets Murphy out of prison (again), beat each other up (again), get into a fight in a redneck bar (again), and save the day (again).  Nobody invented the wheel on this one, but director Walter (Trespass) Hill keeps things moving pretty fast.  Also starring Brion James and Ed O’ Ross.
