Synopsis


Speed 2: Cruise Control
Indications were that this action sequel was in trouble before production began, when the male lead from the first film, Keanu Reeves, declined a role in the follow-up. Sandra Bullock returns as Annie Porter, an accident-prone ditz who is thrilled when her boyfriend Alex (Jason Patric) presents her with two tickets for a cruise ship vacation to the Bahamas. The trip is a peace offering presented because Annie has just learned that Alex is a police officer who's been lying to her about his choice of profession. Little does the happy couple know that the disgruntled John Geiger (Willem Dafoe), designer of the ship's computer system, has plotted a violent takeover of the vessel and a diamond hijacking that puts everyone on board in mortal danger. Being the dashing police officer he is, Alex leaps into action and tries to stop Geiger, but not before the ship crashes at top velocity into a Caribbean port town. Sandra Bullock agreed to star in this flop of a sequel in order to get financial backing for a pet project, Hope Floats (1998), a low-budget drama that turned a healthy profit. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    Inferior Sequel Looks Great on Blu

    Even Keanu knew to stay away from this one. A sequel that probably should have never been made, but nonetheless, here it is. Story loses its lead actor and moves from a bus to a cruise ship. Same plot as the first one, hostages in motion need rescue...but most will need rescued from this movie. It is a guilty pleasure for me, I get a kick out of it and Ienjoy the great propulsive musical soundtrack by Mark Mancina, but if you're looking for a good action flick, stick the the original.

    I remember when this film arrived on home video back in the day, and I was hoping for some great action as the first one, and the only good part was the big cruise boat crashing! I wish it were in DTS HD Master Audio 7.1 as opposed to 5.1, but it sounds just as good. Sandra Bullock is hot and sexy in this film and she is perfect! Wish this also came with the Digital HD version for iTunes!

    Speed 2 - I Miss Keanu Reeves's character

    The first Speed was great, and helped launch Sandra Bullock's career. I appreciated the PG-13 rating of the sequel (versus the R of the first), but I miss Keanu Reeves's character. I do like having this Blu Ray edition (with improved picture vs. DVD) to complete my Speed collection.

    As a Speed fan my expectations for this sequel were admittedly low. I waited until now to finally give it a chance and with anticipation. I was however bored through most of this film, not even Willem Dafoe as the villain saved this movie.

    High tech robbery on the seas had plenty of action. The ending was unique especially that I visited the town / island. Sandra Bullock is gorgeous as usual.

    I enjoyed the movie. Watched it years ago. Love Sandra Bullock no matter what she is in. Preferred Speed over this sequel. Still worth a watch.

    Good movie. Makes you think twice about a Cruise and not knowing if there is a wacko on board. Just saying.

    Not as good as the first one. This one was basically the first one but in a boat and not as well put together.
