Critic Reviews of "48 Hrs."TIME MagazineJune 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 ReaderMarch 01, 2007
All in all, a superior genre piece, if not the height of Hill's artistry.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
A down-the-line thriller, plain, fast and efficient.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 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 TimesAugust 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.Reel Film ReviewsMarch 28, 2016
...a rather disappointing buddy comedy.Common Sense MediaAugust 26, 2014
Violence, profanity, racial epithets in dated '80s movie.Film Freak CentralApril 06, 2011
A genuinely tetchy, risky race comedyMovie MetropolisFebruary 17, 2011
It remains one of the better action-comedy buddy pictures you'll find.Matt's Movie ReviewsJuly 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.MovieholeOctober 26, 2008
The perfect buddy-cop movie! Murphy and Nolte are awesome!Film4May 07, 2008
Fast-paced, frill-free action entertainment of the first order.
