  • Critic Reviews of "48 Hrs."

    TIME Magazine
    June 06, 2009

    Neither jokes nor fast, flashy action can completely distract audiences from the failure to establish an authentic, rather than a purely conventional connection between Nolte and Murphy.

    Chicago Reader
    March 01, 2007

    All in all, a superior genre piece, if not the height of Hill's artistry.

    Time Out
    January 26, 2006

    A down-the-line thriller, plain, fast and efficient.

    Chicago Sun-Times
    October 23, 2004

    The movie's story is nothing to write home about. It's pretty routine. What makes the movie special is how it's made. Nolte and Murphy are good, and their dialogue is good, too -- quirky and funny.

    New York Times
    August 30, 2004

    [It] is more memorable for its characters than for its high style, more a series of energetic scenes than a collection of handsome imagery. It has life, ferocity and humor in place of icy, stylized elegance, and that seems more than a fair trade.

    ...a rather disappointing buddy comedy.

    Common Sense Media
    August 26, 2014

    Violence, profanity, racial epithets in dated '80s movie.

    Film Freak Central
    April 06, 2011

    A genuinely tetchy, risky race comedy

    Movie Metropolis
    February 17, 2011

    It remains one of the better action-comedy buddy pictures you'll find.

    Matt's Movie Reviews
    July 06, 2010

    One of the first buddy action movies, 48 Hrs. laid the ground work for the sub-genre that was at its best during the 1980's.

    October 26, 2008

    The perfect buddy-cop movie! Murphy and Nolte are awesome!

    May 07, 2008

    Fast-paced, frill-free action entertainment of the first order.
