Why "48 Hours" was the sequel

Post by its_all_our_turf »

Think about it:
At the end of The Warriors, the Riffs realize there has been too much bloodshed and decide to spare Luther's life (it's what Cyrus would have wanted). Luther starts a new life in San Francisco.

Ajax is released from a NYC jail after serving time for assaulting a police officer. The charge of sexual assault is dropped when Ajax's court-appointed attorney successfully proves Ajax was the victim of entrapment. However, there was a warrant out for Ajax for an unrelated crime back when he was living in San Francisco under the name Ganz (before moving to NYC and joining the Warriors). He is extradicted to California.

The cop Swan hits with the bat has become disillusioned with the brutal ways of the NYPD and decides he has had enough of the thin blue line. Under the advice of convict Ajax, he changes his name to Billy Bear, quits the force, and moves to California, turning to crime as a means of atoning for his mispent years as a cop.

Living a law-abiding citizen's life in San Francisco leaves Luther missing the excitement of the gang life he led back in NYC. Ex-cop Billy Bear shares with Luther the many ways he's seen people successfully steal money. They hook up with Reggie Hammond, and the two steal several hundred thousand dollars.

Billy Bear, meanwhile, has also been in touch with Ganz, aka Ajax. The two hatch a plan to break Ganz out of jail, track down Luther, and recover the money.

Director Walter Hill, having made an irreversible error by killing off Luther, Ganz/Ajax, and Officer Billy Bear at the end of the movie, has no choice but to focus the next sequel on much-less-popular Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte characters. Therefore, "Another 48 Hours" cannot really be considered part of The Warriors movie franchise.

That explains why I didn't dig Another 48 Hours as much as the first one.

Let's not forget Rembrandt, after Swan took off with Mercy at the end of the movie... the gang continued on for a few more years, but eventually died out when breakdancing hit the streets of New York in the late 70's, early '80's..Rembrandt tried to become an Artist/Graphic Designer in Manhattan at that time, but due to the fact that he had no previous formal school training, he could not secure a job..this led to Rembrandt leaving NYC and somehow he made it to Frisco where he was one of many starving artists trying to make a buck there...Rembrandt eventually registered at SF Community College, majoring in Fine Arts, and got a job at a city Garage to make money for his tuition..he was the Garage attendant that made fun of Luther coming to pick up Reggie's old car with the money in it :D

Rembrandt

Post by its_all_our_turf »

I didn't realize until about two weeks ago that Rembrandt was the parking garage guy. Not paying attention, i guess. And i've seen 48 hours a dozen times.
So thanks for explaining how he managed to get to Frisco. I wonder if there's anyone else we're missing.

Very funny story...and a sense of imagination can really get someone going with a story but its all true about the guys going from the Warriors to 48 hours...however "its_all_our_turf" failed to mention how Rembrandt went from a Warrior to a parking attendant...

I would say that his family didn't like living the rough life of NYC and decided to move to San Francisco...unfortunately Rembrandt had to go along with them since he didn't have a steady job...since his record showed that he was a gang member he struggled in trying to find good jobs even though he was a good kid who finished high school...but no one wanted a gang member...so a family member hooked him up with that job for now...

There's an episode of "Simon & Simon" (an old 80s mystery-crime-drama show) in which Vermin stars in but I haven't seen that in awhile...I forgot the important details...even Barry DeVorzon does the music for this show...

I haven't really seen that movie with Cochise so someone else can continue...

Anyway, and yeah only a brilliant theory..., I searched 4 something about Sonny Landham (The Cop Swan hits with the bat.../Billie Bear in "48 Hrs"/Billy in "Predator")  on the forum... finding out a lot of Forum Members links on him. BTW, thanks 4 those links guys!!! But no pic posted, so...
