This movie is a f''king waste of my time and others too, Just a big ball of dog crap from the makes of the movie. horrible acting, unspeakable visual effect's and laughable sense which they were met to be serious but this movie is so Bad that It is hard to talk about really.

Speed. Without Keanu Reeves. On a boat. Even worse than it sounds.
Chris Kavan - wrote on 01/09/2012
Easily joins Blair Witch II, Blues Brothers 2000 and Grease 2 as one of the most egregious sequels to be made. The first Speed is a lot of fun - Keanu, Bullock, Hopper and a "the bus that couldn't slow down" - this is a boat, which is not at all tense, and neither Jason Patric or WIllem Dafoe can make a difference.

“Wait! You’re my hostage!”

On its own terms, Speed 2: Cruise Control is a lame movie. It’s boring instead of exciting in terms of story and cliche instead of creative with the action. But as a sequel to one of the most tightly plotted and relentlessly paced action films ever made, Cruise Control is a momentous failure.
The film opens up during a police chase that awkwardly rewrites the first movie. It takes close to forty-five minutes before any real action occurs afterwards in a two hour film. It’s an eternity.
The cast looks miserable and as if they all hate each other. Except for Willem Dafoe as the villain who seems like the only person having fun. The absence of Keanu Reeves is the elephant in the room. Sandra Bullock has no chemistry with Jason Patric who spends more time rescuing a deaf girl than …
MV Seabourn Legend

Speed 2: Cruise Control is a 1997 action thriller film produced and directed by Jan de Bont, and released by 20th Century Fox. It stars Sandra Bullock, Jason Patric and Willem Dafoe. It is a sequel to Speed, although Keanu Reeves chose not to star in it. In the film, Bullock is trapped on the Seabourn Legend, an out-of-control luxury cruise liner whose navigation computers were reprogrammed by a computer hacker, Willem Dafoe, setting the ship on a collision course with an oil tanker. The franchise's star Sandra Bullock has been noted to joke about the failure of the second installment.
I really miss Keanu Reeves as Jack Traven and Jason Patric is really boring in the role of Alex Shaw. William Dafoe delivers a mediocre performance. But, as far as I'm concerned Sandra Bullock can do no …
Lacks what the first movie had

"Annie" (Sandra Bullock) has apparently recovered the trauma of the hijacked bus she was a part of a few years ago. She moved on from "Jack", the hero of the bus incident whom she hooked up with, and is now dating a new beau, who is also a cop, "Alex" (Jason Patric). The two go on a romantic cruise, with the crew mistaking them as a couple on their honeymoon not knowing that "Alex" is carrying a ring in his pocket.
Then it happens. A crazed man (Willem Dafoe), who created the ship's software, hijacks the boat with plans to steal the multi-million dollar jewel collection that is being stored on board.
Now, "Alex" goes in full cop mode, despite being well into international waters and out of his jurisdiction, and tries to stop the maniac's plans, while saving the ship and all those …
