YMMV: 48 Hours
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: In the first movie, Jack is a dangerous, racist, rogue cop who will do anything murder a criminal.
  • Genre Turning Point: This movie more or less invented the buddy cop/mismatched partners plot that has become become prevalent in Hollywood movies today. Director Walter Hill would also revisit the genre with Red Heat, this film's sequel Another 48 Hrs. and Bullet To The Head.
