3.0 out of 5 stars Arggh, I actually kinda liked it! July 27, 2002
By Eric
Format:DVD
Okay, when it comes to things like script and genuine quality filmmaking, Speed 2 is pretty bad, with a preposterous plot that's far more unlikely to occur than even the outrageous (but brilliant) premise of the original. But yet, as entertainment value, this movie isn't half-bad at all, even if it takes 75 minutes to get to the big collision course finale (a veerrry long and quite thrilling sequence) which, while not up to par with the bus sequence in Speed, is still a damn good action sequence in its own right. Yes, the film does miss the presence of Keanu Reeves (I never thought I'd say that), who had great chemistry with Sandra Bullock. Jason Patric and Bullock just don't click as a couple, perhaps partially because this relationship lacks the spontaneity that the original Speed gave us. As for the other performances, the only one of note is Willem Dafoe, whose over-the-top, maniacal portrayal of the villain, Geiger, unfortunately ranks as one of the worst performances of this excellent actor's career. Kudos to composer Mark Mancino, who had the putzah not to just recycle the score from the original, and while his work here is similar to that piece, there are enough variations to put them apart and this score is almost as pulse-pounding.
As silly as Speed 2 does have the tendency to get (Bullock finds a chainsaw in the ship), the film never takes itself very seriously and never asks you to, either. Truthfully, I never could see why people hate this film so much, especially when it's superior to the likes of equally silly action thrillers such as Con Air, Bad Boys, Gone in Sixty Seconds, and The Long Kiss Goodnight. In closing, this is very slightly recommended, mainly because of the concluding action and stunt sequences, and if you watch this film as a half-knowingly silly action flick, you might indeed enjoy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars did anyone read the script? November 9, 2004
I guess no one read the script thouroughly before jumping feet first with the kitchen sink into the vast mess of this horrible sequel. The only satisfying note I want to add is Keanu Reeves is a genius...he didnt star in this one, thank god. Good for you Keanu..good for you dude. This one has Sandra Bullock (Speed, Murder 8y Numbers) now, without a Keanu Reeves and now with a Jason Patric (Narc, The Lost Boys) only reason he didnt tell her he was working for ironically for the people Keanu was working for. So this pisses her off, he surprises her with a cruise ship....they have a good time but the only thing is they got on the wrong boat at the wrong time see there's this terroist, Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, Wild At Heart) and he has taking hold of the boat. Now he wants demands and stuff otherwise he blows it up. Patric then thinks he can try to stop Dafoe. Are we sensing a familiar sense? Long, dreadful sequel to the already better original. Jan DeBont must of been smoking the wrong stuff when he came up with this one. Even some interesting but washed away action scenes dont even cut the bill. Also starring Joe Morton (Speed, Executive Decision), Tim Conway, Temuera Morrison (Six Days, Seven Nights, The Island Of Dr. Moreau 96'), Collen Camp (Die Hard With A Vengance, Clue) and Glenn Plummer (Speed, The Salton Sea). what a waste, huh?

1.0 out of 5 stars SPEED 2--A MOVIE OUT OF CONTROL March 26, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Let me make some points: First of all, yes, this movie does have lots of action in it. There's even some humor scattered throughout. But apart from those two things, this movie is dreadful in every possible way. Everything is so cliche. The ugly, eccentric villian (he likes leeches). The stupid but beautiful female who is actually smarter in some ways than the villian in that at least she has her head screwed on straight. The buff, handsome hero who comes to the rescue and saves the day. Down-to-the-last-second suspense. Personally, I don't see how this was even made into a movie. The producers probably thought that the earlier movie's success would pull it through. The script and storyline in this movie are very bad. From the looks of things, people saw this movie for 3 reasons: 1--To see Sandra Bullock, whom they adore. 2--In hopes that Speed 2 will be as good as the first one. 3--They were desperate for an action flick. Pass on this movie, your time is better spent elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speed 2 - Cruise Control January 5, 2010
Format:DVD
Annie Porter's last boyfriend Jack--a daredevil cop--didn't turn out to be too much of a romantic type and they have long since parted ways. She's now dating a much quieter, relaxed guy. To be sure, Alex Shaw also works in law enforcement, but he drives a ten-speed bike, and his most perilous duty is busting teenage pickpockets at Venice Beach. Alex, who's actually a member of an elite SWAT unit, hides the nature of his actual duties, for fear of losing Annie. He will do anything to make it up to her and when he gets caught by Annie in the midst of making a fearless arrest, Alex quickly produces a pair of tickets for what promises to be the ultimate vacation. Destination: the Caribbean... on board the world's most luxurious cruise liner. Although Speed 2 has a similar plot to the first movie it is great. It is a classic adventure movie that will have you cheering in your seat. Every minute the movie sends you on a new roller coaster of special effects and action.

1.0 out of 5 stars Reeves was smart ! August 31, 2000
By Poverty
Format:VHS Tape
KEanu Reeves must have a realy good agent ! Instead of accepting to make this cheap sequel to the action classic "SPEED", he chose to shoot great movies like "THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE" and "MATRIX". The screnplay ( if we can call it by that name) is so bad it made me laugh.
