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.

A classic 1990s movie with originality, grit and a simple, powerful story that will grip your seat to the end of the ride thru LA! Love the Steelbook art but wished the movie was remixed in Dolby Atmos or DTS:X Pro…. But the movie is perfect and appropriate for our time! Love Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves!
Good Movie, very entertaining. Very good video and sound.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
~ SPEED 4K Steelbook is nothing short of Superb! ~
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
Wow, what can I say about this 1994 movie that was a smash hit for not only Keanu Reeves, but Sandra Bullock as well. I believe it was her first major starring role. She did THE NET after this one and the rest is history for her. Keanu was already and up and coming star in his own right. He's one of my current favorite male actors and has two hit franchises to his name, THE MATRIX and JOHN WICK.
This newest release is just stunning now in 4K. It has never looked as good, in my opinion and I already owned the previous Blu-ray put out by FOX.
Special Features are really good and looks like most of them were brought over from the 2 Disc DVD set that was released years ago.
The discs themselves even have artwork on them as they should be for a nicely done release as this. Kudos all around!
This is a good one to get folks! Highly recommended!
