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.

First of all I really enjoyed the 1994 movie "Speed' with Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock,& Dennis Hopper. It was the best action I ever seen since the first Die Hard movie came in 1988 during the Christmas season. However I did enjoy the 1997 sequel ''Speed 2: Cruise Control" as much as I did the first speed. Even though Keanu didn't want nothing to do with the sequel in which I was disappointed about, in which Reeves was replaced with actor Jason Patric who starred in the movie ''the Lost Boys'', which I thought who did an amazing job portraying Alex Shaw, which he plays Annie's (bullock) new boyfriend. I liked the fact that Jan DeBont brought back Sandra Bullock to reprise her role as Annie Porter. Also I like the new villain Geiger who was portrayed by William Dafoe who later played the villain '' The Green Goblin'' in the 2002 movie Spider-Man, which I thought William was playing a crazy role as Geiger. Fun fact, both Speed 1 &2 came out a year before me and my brother were born. Speed came out in1994, and my brother was born in 1995, and Speed 2: Cruise Control came out in 1997, and I was born in 1998 ! Isn't that really something cool ! out of all I give Speed 2: Cruise Control a 3.5/ 5. Good movie !

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?

"Welcome to paradise. And the name's Dante!"

So begins Sandra Bullock and Jason Patric's harrowing adventure about the Seaborne Legend. The beautiful ship, friendly passengers, and attentive crew would ordinarily make a splendid cruise. Unfortunately, among the passengers is a madman who is bent on ruining everyone's vacation.

Though it would appear this film is not universally well-loved, it is actually one of my favorite action moves. I enjoyed the main setting: a cruise ship. The passengers are very funny. Among them are a couple who are selling a new diet regimen called Fat Busters, where "fat is your friend" (so the body won't try to hoard fat, making weight loss difficult). Their fellow shipmates, surrounded by the cruise ship's banquet-like meal, heartily agree. And the deaf girl who signs is wonderful.

The villain is entertaining. (Admittedly, the story behind his motivation to destroy the ship may be rather contrived.)

The action moves from the ocean-liner, to speedboat, to personal water-craft, to a propeller aircraft, then finally to a tower high atop an oil tanker. (If you've ever wondered what it would look like to see an oil tanker blow up, your curiosity will be satisfied by what happens next.)

In all, this movie is a little like a trip to an amusement park. There is lots of action in this movie, and no small amount of comedy.
