This movie did a great job making a thriller out of one setting, a bus. It was wild and seat-grabbing ride that was different from any thriller I know of from that time.

This is a slickly-directed and adrenaline-fueled thriller that builds a tense atmosphere that it never relinquishes. Dennis Hopper is perfectly cast as the mad bomber and Sandra Bullock demonstrates her magnetic energy and charm early in her breakout role.

(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. …

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 …
