(R.I.P. Dennis Hopper)

(R.I.P. Dennis Hopper), A great action flick with so many good things and less Bad things. the villain in the movie was fun to watch on screen I mean he was pulling off words like "Come on hero are you ready to be a sucker for sliver", the movie has great visual effect's and Sandra Bullock was one her prime in this movie and Keanu Reeves is not a great actor but he does a good Job as playing the main Bad-ass in the film. Jeff Daniels was in the movie he Did a fine Job as well in the movie, But the one thing that I could not stand and that is that the movie goes a bit unreality with the bus flying in the air landing on it's feet like a cat but in real life the bus will tip over and crash and that's really it the movie itself is great and if you have no see the movie yet please watch it. ...

"There's a bomb on this bus!"

Keanu Reeves stars as the courageous Officer Jack Traven, a police officer who is caught up in a deadly game with Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper) after foiling a hostage situation involving former Atlanta cop and an elevator full of victims. Now Payne has placed a bomb on a city bus, and if the bus drops below 50mph or lets anyone off, it will explode. When one of the passengers accidentally shots the bus driver a cute passenger Annie (Sandra Bullock) who just happened to be taking the bus because her license was revoked for speeding takes over the bus.

Jack has to do his best to keep the passengers calm until the SWAT Team finds out who this mysterious mad bomber is before they run out of gas or worst, get blown away. Jeff Daniels does a terrific job as Det. Harry Temple, Alan Ruck is a...

Speed review

A retired Atlanta bomb squad sergeant Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper) places a bomb on a city bus that Traven boards. Payne instructs Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves) to keep moving above 50 miles per hour or the bomb will explode. The bus driver was gets injured so Annie Porter (Sandra Bullock) takes over the wheel while Jack tries to dismantle the bomb. The overall premise was original and pace was good since the story kept moving. Only reservation this critic has is its believability of how the bus kept going above the mentioned speed for a long period of time. Screenplay was not that impressive but camera work was fascinating. Sandra Bullock was fabulous and her character just likable. Dennis Hopper's noteworthy portrayal was likewise good. Speed is a wonderful thrill ride that doesn’t...

"Speed" by Yojimbo

An extortionist plants a bomb on a Los Angeles bus which will explode if its speed drops to less than 50 miles per hour. This thin synopsis perfectly represents the paper thin plot of Speed, which is a film a young Michael Bay must have been taking notes from back in 1994. All of his trademarks can be found here; the over saturated colour filters, dumb one liners, pointless slo-mo explosions and the way the camera endlessly circles our heroes as if the audience are mere satellites gazing up at the Olympian Gods of Hollywood. It's a simple premise, designed purely to manufacture edge of the seat, base thrills and as such it works extremely well. Keanu makes a decent low brow action hero and is good as long as you don't expect him to express emotion or act or anything. The biggest problem i...

Speed = Action.

PROS:
Speed is one great action film. It was one of the first films I saw and still remains one of my favourite. The suspense and action of this film is speechless. The action sequences were performed so well; you couldn't see the special effects. Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock and Dennis Hopper all deliver breathtaking performances; primarily Hopper's as the psychotic bomber. The plot is very interesting and fairly simple. A bomb on bus.

CONS:
The dialogue got very cliched; especially with Sandra Bullock but then again; it was her first mainstream film. Not much problems with Speed; it is genuinely great.

VERDICT:
Speed is a action thrill-ride which will leave you wanting for more. It is a shame the sequel wasn't the same but surely; this film is a film guaranteed to leave your ...
