Technical Specs


Did You Know?


In the "Making of" featurette, director Tony Scott describes this sequel as a cross between the first movie and
48 Hrs., which also starred Eddie Murphy.


Factual errors:
At one point Murphy fires his pistol with the slide locked back, which is impossible.


Axel Foley:
[about the cement truck Billy got for a pursuit]
Well, this is pretty sporty!

Billy Rosewood:
Don't complain! It's all I could find!

User Review

Pretty Good

Rating: 7/10

I finally saw this sequel and it was better than what many people say.
Murphy has some very hilarious moments and Reinhold and Ashton were just
good. Also, the action scene's were decent too, though the chase with
cement truck was'nt as good as the chase in the first with the transport
truck. I did notice that the film lacked the freshness of the first one
still it was fun to watch.
