  • What makes the movie special is how it's made. Nolte and Murphy are good, and their dialogue is good, too - quirky and funny. show more

  • Together Cates and Hammond take a thrill-a-minute trip through the San Francisco underworld and along the way develop one of the 1980s' more interesting cinematic buddy pairings. show more

  • A quick and clever thriller as nasty as a piece of shrapnel snapping the sound barrier, 48 Hrs. is as violent as it is funny. It is very funny. [03 Dec 1982] show more
