Original theatrical trailer
The movie that transformed Keanu Reeves into a bona fide action hero, Speed was also former cinematographer Jan De Bonts assured directorial debut. Its an almost perfect high-concept movie that lives up to its title both in the adroit choreography of the action set-pieces and Graham Yosts taut screenplay, which is admirably stripped of all padding.
De Bont further heightens the excitement by his use of authentic locations as the out-of-control bus travels through, across and--in one unforgettable scene--a few feet in the air above the urban sprawl of LA. And instead of relegating the love interest to a dull subplot, here Sandra Bullock is an integral part of the action as she and her bus career around the city at 50-plus miles an hour. Even the opening credits neatly illustrate the films title, as does composer Mark Mancinas pulsing score. Sensibly, Reeves passed on the ill-advised sequel and took on The Matrix instead; both screenwriter and director have yet to do anything better than this.
On the DVD: Speed is the kind of movie that was made for the DVD format, and this two-disc special edition does it full justice. The feature is presented anamorphically in its original 2.35:1 ratio with spectacularly vivid Dolby 5.1 or DTS 5.1 options. Jan De Bont provides a commentary, though his solo effort is less engaging than that of chatty producer Mark Gordon and writer Graham Yost who enjoy constantly interrupting each other.
Disc 2 has lots of goodies, including mini-documentaries on the key action set-pieces with storyboards and multi-angle views of the major stunts. "Inside Speed" looks at various aspects of the production, from locations to stunts; production design and visual effects, plus reproducing all of Graham Yosts original screenplay. There are individual interviews with the director and principal stars, a short selection of extended scenes and a brief deleted one; a photo gallery, plus a promotional menu in which there is a HBO "making of" featurette, TV spots, trailers, a press kit and Billy Idols music video. In all, a satisfyingly extensive package.--Mark Walker

Speed is a fun action packed ridiculous 90's action movie which propelled Keanu Reeves as a bonafide action star, his only entry into the action genre was 1991 surfing bank robbers Point Break with the late Patrick Swayze. While Keanu will never any oscars and is really an actor - he is a movie star and displays his limited range very well with pure gusto. As one of Sandra Bullock early movies this movie holds up very well in comparison to other 90's Die Hard style flicks - of which there were many following the success of that film. Fox the studio that made Die Hard had been very against doing a Die Hard style movie, but after seeing the success that rival competitors had they bit the bullet and took the shot. The end result is a fun action packed movie, while dumb and stupid entertains you none the less. It may have helped somewhat that they had Die Hard Cinematographer Jan De Bont make his directorial debut with this movie. The action and cinematography is nothing short of spectacular and is presented really well on this definative DVD with crystal clear picture. Keanu wisely passed on the sequel and it is too bad De Bont and Bullock could recreate the fun tense aspect of this movie again. 5 star movie for sheer entertainment you can't beat, up there with Lethal Weapon, Commando and Cobra.

If I remember correctly this is a really good move. Haven't watched it for years and have bought to watch over the Christmas period.
