Anybody seen Keanu? The action star of Speed opted out of this overbearing sequel, which finds co-star Sandra Bullock in love with another guy (Jason Patric) and in trouble aboard a cruise ship under the control of a mad extortionist (Willem Dafoe). Speed director Jan de Bont is back at the helm for part 2, but even he seems to have forgotten that what made the first film work was the simplicity of its hook (the bomb, the bus that can't drive below 50 mph, the handful of sympathetic passengers, etc.). Speed 2 is all about hugeness: big ship, lots of places to get into trouble and so on. Even with an eye-popping, endless finale of the vessel crashing into port (and causing mondo destruction), there is nothing about this movie that is remotely as involving as its predecessor. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

In this sequel to 'Speed', Sandra Bullock returns as Annie Porter, holidaying in the Caribbean on a cruiser with new love Alex Shaw (Jason Patric). However, embittered computer genius John Geiger (Willem Dafoe) sets the ship on a collision course with a super tanker after planting timers and explosives all over the vessel. Alex and Annie struggle to save their fellow passengers and themselves in a desperate race against time.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..AN ACTION CLASSIC.." 9 May 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I actually truly must stick up for this movie as I love it, its just an old school classic action movie! hell yeah its cheesy in places but that just adds to the charm, its big, bold and lots of fun on a massive scale, way more than the original, am I the only one who actually thinks the original is boring? speed the original had Keanu who just is a donkey turd at acting in anything, Dennis hopper who was boring, I think Willem Defoe was a great villain, much better, an over the top eccentric performance and a good story arc, of course Sandra Bullock is back who I love, crazy over the top again but she's a fine actress and good to look at, this sequel has bigger action, more plausible as they are on water and not in traffic, great budget explosions etc., Jason Patric is a decent lead, better than Keanu any day, this is top popcorn fun and classic action from start to finish, underrated I say, go back to it you will probably enjoy it!!
This Blu-ray import is region A but is not locked so it plays on UK players no problem!! great picture, has a HBO behind the scenes 30mins, and trailers!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ludicrous Speed 4 July 2014
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Summer 1997 - a high-octane trailer for Speed 2 precedes Con Air in cinemas. Audiences are impressed. "That looks good", they say. Con Air is a number 1 hit in early June. One week later (Friday the 13th no doubt) it is knocked-off the top spot by Speed 2. Audiences are still shell-shocked by the trailer and by memories of the 1994 hit. By the following week all goodwill that anyone was willing to lend the film had evaporated and it plummeted from the top spot at the box office to fifth. Two weeks later it would be out of the top 10. A bad result for a $110-million movie.

Speed 2 was originally scheduled for release in the UK in October 1997 but was switched with Volcano (another Fox production) for an August 15th release date. Apparently Fox wanted to be done with the movie as soon as possible. This was before the internet allowed every minute detail of a movie to be scrutinized before its release. Speed 2 wasn't released worldwide as much as it was purged.

I hate Speed. Keanu Reeves is a terrible actor and I have called his performance in that film one of the worst efforts in the past two decades. He is superseded in Speed 2 by the much more likable Jason Patic as Alex Shaw, an LAPD renegade who takes Annie Porter (Sandra Bullock playing up the ditzyness) on a cruise on the Seabourn Legend (a real ship) in the Caribbean. Their holiday is interrupted by John Giger, a likable maniac in the Travis Dane mold who seizes control of the ship and plans to rob the purser's safe in revenge for being fired by the parent company.

Most of the passengers are evacuated onto lifeboats, leaving a handful in danger as the ship heads forward at a whopping 14-miles-per-hour on a collision course with an oil tanker.

1.0 out of 5 stars How could it possibly go wrong? 24 Jun 2004
By Tom Robinson VINE VOICE
The sequel to one of the decade's defining action blockbusters should have been pretty straightforward. All Jan De Bont (the film's director) had to do was follow five rules. One, come up with an immensely high concept. Two, maintain the action at a relatively swift pace. Three, give Annie (Sandra Bullock's character) plenty to say because audiences love her. Four, introduce a psychotic villain to scowl and yell like Dennis Hopper. And five, give us plenty more of Keanu Reeves character, SWAT boy Jack Traven, to woo the hearts of the female audience and bust the balls of anyone who gets in his way.
Rule one receives a big fat tick, as the filmmakers come up with a neat reversal of the original. If the newly chosen mode of transport DOESN'T stop, then everyone is in trouble. From this point on though, everything else receives a big fat cross. Rule two is immediately stuffed up by setting the forthcoming events on...wait for it...a cruise ship, meaning the action now progresses with the momentum of a wounded snail attempting to navigate through a puddle of treacle. Rule three also screws up with the screenwriters' decision to relegate Sandra Bullock to the sidelines, oohing and aahing as the men battle it out.
Rule four dies the moment that Willem Dafoe begins to gurn like Jim Carrey with severe constipation. Worst of all, we are informed that his nutjob has a strange blood disease that requires him to apply leeches at regular moments throughout the think that someone actually got paid to write this stuff. And as for rule five...well, it appears to have been thrown out of a very tall building, as it is goodbye Keanu Reeves and hello Jason 'mahogany' Patric. Add dialogue that lands with the thud of a computer instruction manual, as well as clumsy and quite simply pathetic directing, and you are left with a film that sinks to the ocean floor. A one star film at best and it was lucky to get that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly Dire 23 Dec 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
From the moment the ship leaves port, anything smacking of plasuibility is thrown overboard. An example is our hero swimming through the bilges of the ship, where one would expect him to have to endure dark, dirty, stomach churning conditions. Instead, the water is crystal clear and brightly lit. This sums up the anti-septic nature of the action of this film, which never gets anywhere near emulating the pain and suffering the hero has to endure in, say "Die Hard". It's as if the director and his cast gave up on the idea of creating a suspense thriller and instead thought they'd have a go at picking up where "Carry On Cruising" left off - they failed here too. Final confirmation for me that they'd lost the plot came when our hero turns the ship by manually operating the ship's bow thrusters. The ship must weigh in at 20,000 tons minimum - Somehow I think Schwarzenegger would even have met his match here.
Not much else to say except watch out for UB40 as the ship's band - funny, haven't heard much from them lately.
