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 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars A top speed of two millimeters a second April 6, 2000
Format:DVD
It was Randy in Scream 2 who quoted sequels as, "by definition alone they are inferior films." This film goes a long way to backing up that particular statement. Rather it ends the debate of sequels in a heart beat. And what is wrong with this movie? For starters, you have a ditsy heroine (Sandra Bullock from the original Speed) who drives a car much like she drove the bus in the first movie. A hero cop (Jason Patric) who takes about as much interest in what's going on around him as a dog on valuum. And let's not forget the obligatory bad guy (Willem Dafoe) who's bacground and overall purpose make about as much sense as a misspelt chinese manuel to a VCR. The overall story has no logic, no pace, and no direction. It's name is Speed 2: Cruise Control? A more appropriate name would've been, "What Speed?: No Control."

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this the best they could do? February 10, 2000
By AJ
Format:VHS Tape
What a piece of junk! A ship instead of a bus, so they have to search for something to crash into. A computergenius who takes over the ship and nobody simply puls the plug on the computers and resumes manual steering. It is a ship, for crying out loud, not a supercritical airplane! The original speed kept up the pace. With this movie I kept it up by pushing fast-forward for minutes on end. And then the cast: Dafoe tries to be really bad, but in the end he was the only guy I grew to like. Bullock gave a repeatperformance of the original, without the zest of the original and Patric instead of Reeves is like being out of the frying pan and into the fire. The equivalent of two dollars that I paid to rent this tape was the biggest waste of money ever.

1.0 out of 5 stars WHAT A SIN ! May 9, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
What a sin ! You take one of the greatest surprises of action movies in the decade ("SPEED") and then make a totally wasted sequel, the kind of sequel responsible for the bad name sequels have! IT's the same director (de Bont), the same beautiful actress (Bullock), but it never works. I feel sorry for Dafoe being in it, he's a great and respectable actor.
