There has never been a better executed action film than Speed. Jan de Bont could not reproduce its success in subsequent films. It carried the Die Hard torch into the 90's with a different kind of action hero, who was more into actually doing his job than wisecracking (Keanu's own objections had something to do with steering the hero away from the Die Hard mold, and Joss Whedon was called in as script doctor). Keanu did a lot of his own action, the rapport between he and Sandra Bullock was excellent, as well as his reunion with Dennis Hopper, and most ladies would agree that in a long career of a most attractive actor, his appearance here set a new benchmark for male hotness.

Excellent. Non-stop action and suspense. Released in 1994, it was exiting for its time, and I remember waiting impatiently for its release on video cassette. Keanu Reeves is in one of his best roles. Sandra Bullock is a fun addition, and "Jack" and "Annie" realize how much they really need each other in the midst of their world falling down around them.

Almost time for its 20th Anniversary but still moving along. This is the first time I have seen the movie and was happy to find that age has not stunted its entertainment value. There are other bus sagas, but this one tries to match the many 'train out of control' films; only in this case, it is a necessity to keep it moving above a certain speed or it will explode. There were a few incidents when the LA police are seen falling for tricks that were old when Dennis Hopper (then the oldest of the stars) was born. I suppose the writers can be forgiven since these were probably required to prepare the way for later scenes. At any rate, there is plenty of action, starred actors played their roles well (with Dennis Hopper, no doubt, encouraged to do his Mad Scientist bit of rug chewing) and the supporting cast did so, too.
While not in the category of best in its class, it is good and lively viewing for any action fan.

I'm not going to dwell much on the storyline or characters. I just want to say that this is one nail-biter right from the opening scene and is so much fun to watch. Sure it makes no sense if you're talking about something like this happening in real life (well maybe it does, but the bus would have exploded early on in its journey) but for entertainment value, this movie is way up there on the scale. Dennis Hopper was a wonderful villain and the characters are very likable.

I want to give thumbs way up for the audio portion of the Blu Ray - turn up the sound when you are watching this because the quality is truly stunning. Very realistic, nothing exaggerated. Dialog is clear and the movie makes good use of a surround system. The video is good, considering the age of the movie. The audio is just plain excellent.

This 1994 matchup of Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock would not be the last pairing of this couple. This fortunate outcome for movie viewers makes it even more fascinating to watch the chemistry between the two back in 1994 when they did not trip off the tongue easily as a twinned male-female leads.

The flashes of humor that pass between them in this flick are brilliant, all the more so because the bomb-rigged bus they're maneuvering through LA, knowing that if bus and passengers will blow up if their speed goes below 50 mph, provides a death trap as a background.

The two wryly observe that relationships that begin under high-stress circumstances don't last. This reviewer is glad to file Bullock and Reeves in SPEED as an exception.

Dennis Hopper pulls a great turn as a heartless but very smart psycho terrorist. He's only in it for the money, so the show can move on without having to get the audience up to speed on any complicated grievances flowing from the past into Hopper's absurdly expressive brain.

Back to Reeves and Bullock, it's almost preternatural how cool the former can appear and how girl-next-door the latter. A lot of cinematic water has flowed under the bridge since the first SPEED back in the 90's. Reeves' and Bullocks repertoires have considerably expanded.

All the better than that such fun can come out of an evening's watching how they established a relationship (in role and as actors) under this most stressful of circumstances.

This review is not about the movie itself. Who needs another review of that? We all know what an excellent thrill-a-minute movie this is that stands the test of time. Its just as good today as it was yesterday, and will continue to be in the future. This review is simply to say that if you're looking to buy this title and want to know which edition is better, the Award Series edition or the 5-Star Collection edition, im here to say that they are both identical. Both have the same special features etc. So buy whichever one you can get cheaper and enjoy!!!!

Very underrated movie. This looks great on Blu-Ray and is definitly worth the price. Sometimes my internet won't stream fast enough and having a Blu-ray just makes the movies run so smoothly on my TV. Watching a Blu-ray just runs faster and looks better than anything on Netflix or cable.

Okay so as far as dialog and plot this is FAR from cinematic genius, however as far as blowing things up and typical action movie fare this WILL scratch that itch. I enjoyed this as ridiculous as it is, I like it. If you WANT to turn your brain of for an hour or so look at a young beautiful Sandra Bullock and a few other actors that will have you saying, "Hey I recognize that guy, not sure from what though" this movie has that in spades!

I haven't watched it yet, but I've seen it a few times before and have been craving this movie for a while. The price was finally right so I scooped it up and am very happy I did. Not sure about speed 2 but this one is a classic. If you like Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock you will enjoy this as long as you like faced paced action thrillers. There's not a lot of scenary it mostly takes place on a bus run amuck and stuck in fast gear, ok no more spoilers check this movie out if you can, I can't wait to watch it again now that I own it.
