Synopsis


Speed
If you don't think Speed is the fastest-moving adventure film ever made, we challenge you to find a faster one. Keanu Reeves stars as an LA Bomb Squad specialist whose principal antagonist is elusive bomber-extortionist Dennis Hopper. Seeking vengeance after his latest ransom scheme is thwarted, Hopper presents a personal challenge to Reeves: A wired-for-destruction city bus, which will detonate if the speedometer drops below 50 MPH. Playing the reluctant civilian who is pressed into service as the bus' "substitute driver," leading lady Sandra Bullock became a major star in her own right. Once Speed gets to the meat of its story, the excitement never lets up--not even after the boobytrapped bus is out of the picture. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    My hard-to-impress kids were impressed

    I love Speed. Have since I saw it in the theaters. Looking for an affordable flick for family movie night with two kids who couldn't have more different tastes in genres, I took a flier on this. They loved it. Both were at the edge of their seats the whole time, reacting to all the key points. Very active participants. Now here's the best part: When the movie was over, they had expended so much energy watching the movie that they went right to bed--no arguments, no fights about brushing teeth. Boom! Bedtime. Totally worth the $9.

    I hardly know where to start. There is so much to like about this film! Sandra Bullock in one of her earlier roles has just the right amount of smarts, sass, and sense to hold her own in a film as full of testosterone as Keanu Reeves, Jeff Daniels, and Dennis Hopper can make it. There's enough humor to make the tension even more tight and the plot twists just keep coming. You won't be bored, but you might reconsider ever riding a bus again.

    This is one of those rare action/suspense movies that will far surpass your expectations. You will be on the edge of your seat a lot because the suspense build up is done that well. The cast is what impressed me the most. I knew what to expect with the Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves pairing, but the supporting characters were a surprise as they were outstanding. Jeff Daniels is always wonderful on screen. Dennis Hopper was great as the lunatic holding them hostage

    Intense, Fast-Paced Movie

    Interesting cast of three actors later to be famous for bigger and better projects - Dennis Hopper, Keanu Reeves, and Sandra Bullock. Intense, fast-paced movie with nice twist on the bad guys motives. One star removed for too much unnecessary language (hence the R rating). Not recommended for children, but for adults, an interesting movie, and a nice look at some of Sandra Bullock's early work.

    Even better in blu ray

    I am not a big action movie guy, but thoroughly enjoyed this film. The leads are terrific, the pacing is tight, and the explosions and crashes are not gratitious. It is well written, with ocassional bits of humor added as counter-balance to the suspence. The blu ray picture is improved over the dvd but the big difference is in the sound. A top notch sound system makes this baby come alive-it's like you're back in the theater seeing it for the first time.

    I loved the film when it came out because it exceeded expectations. Watching it on VHS was fun, but I noted at the time that the picture and sound quality were not so great. I once again was pleasantly surprised because the film itself exceeded the test of time. DVD ain't Blu-ray, but the picture and sound were good. I got more than my $3.99 worth.

    Still holds up very well after all these years. Exciting and true characters to believe in. Fun action picture done just right. Little disappointed that the Blu-ray doesn't come with all the special features that the special edition DVD came with. But still a great ride and Sandra was never prettier.

    Great movie horrible Blu-Ray transfer!

    This movie is awesome but watching this movie on blu-ray was painful, it's like watching DVD version, same exact picture, the only thing that was updated was the sound. THAT'S IT! I have Batman 1989 and you notice the difference right away, the picture is crisp & clean. This movie is not worth buying on blu-ray, save your money and keep your DVD if you're a big fan of "Speed" like myself.
