48 Hrs. (1982), Walter Hill, C

The whole world loves this movie. I find it merely average. Yes, I know there are some who claim it created a whole genre, but I don’t buy it. There were plenty of action-comedies prior to 1982, just none this successful.

Eddie Murphy’s scene in the redneck bar is terrific, but the rest is loud, needlessly vulgar, inelegant, inarticulate and even kinda bleak. So fire away at me for not being overly impressed by a classic.

  1. I also re-watched this not too long ago and was less impressed than I remembered.
    Check out “Hickey and Boggs” if you haven’t already. It’s Walter Hill doing the bi-racial
    buddy cop thing much earlier and much better. It was on Netflix streaming at some point.
    Not sure if it still is.
