Product Details

Product Description


Anybody seen Keanu? The action star of Speed opted out of this overbearing sequel, which finds costar Sandra Bullock in love with another guy (Jason Patric) and in trouble aboard a cruise ship under the control of a mad extortionist (Willem Dafoe). Speed director Jan de Bont is back at the helm for part 2, but even he seems to have forgotten that what made the first film work was the simplicity of its hook (the bomb, the bus that can't drive below 50 mph, the handful of sympathetic passengers, etc.). Speed 2 is all about hugeness: big ship, lots of places to get into trouble, and so on. Even with an eye-popping, endless finale of the vessel crashing into port (and causing mondo destruction), there is nothing about this movie that is remotely as involving as its predecessor. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Sandra Bullock and Jason Patric star as a young couple whose dream cruise turns to terror when a lunatic computer genius (Willem Dafoe) sets a new course for destruction.

while i don't think this movie was a s good as the original,i also
don't think it's as bad as the average rating here(2/5)indicates.true,it
doesn't have Keanu Reeves,or Dennis Hopper as the bad
guy.however,Sandra Bullock does return.and it does have Jason
Patric,who's pretty good actor with some charisma.and let's not forget
Willem Dafoe as the bad guy.he's makes a good villain,in my mind.just
like the first "Speed"this one has some decent action sequences,but
they are less frequent ans less flashy than the original.also,there is
one scenes which completely shatters believability.the story itself is
not as compelling.in fact,i think there is less depth to this one.Jan
de Bont and Graham Yost are also behind this one,but for whatever
reason they fail to capture the same magic.still,it's a highly
entertaining movie.for that reason,i give "Speed 2" 3.5/5

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad May 14 2004
ok, this sequel does not live up to the standards of the first but it is very enjoyable. Sure there can be the occasional stupid dialogue here and there, but only really by one person, Willem defoe, but he did an ok job but i didnt see it for him, i saw it for the action. The action sequences really picked up when daylight came. They are good but they should have cut them shorter a bit, only because i really wanted to feel the rush like in the first, but i love the ship running into the town and the boat blowing up in the end. I think this film would have been great if Keanu had accepted to come back and they should have kept the MA rating. sandra Bullock, good as usual, Jason Patrik, well they needed somebody to fill in and he did a good job. This film does not take itself too seriously, they made it for the fans, and i liked it, just enjoy it for what it is, a pretty decent sequel.

2.0 out of 5 stars Speed 2 needs to slow down! March 23 2004
The original Speed was a different kind of movie (Who would have thought a movie that took place mainly on a bus would be so good?) that for one reason or another MANY people enjoyed. Speed 2 seems to be one of those "We liked the first one so we want a sequel!" Kind of movies, and it turned out to be pretty bad. Speed 2 actually makes a Disney sequel look GOOD.
The movie centers around our heroine Annie (her role reprised by Sandra Bullock) who is taking a driving test in the beginning of the movie to get her license back for (gasp!) speeding! She has just gotten herself out of a relationship with Jack (Who was in the first one) and is now with Alex (Jason Patric). When she finds out that Alex works for the same squad that Jack works for she isn't too happy with that.
Later Alex decides to take Annie on a cruise and when they do things start off fine and dandy until a mad bomber (William Dafoe) by the name of Geiger takes over the cruise ship trapping a few passengers on board.
Let's put this one thing aside, Keanu Reeves didn't show up in this film. Surprisingly enough this one thing is what starts the film slide into ruin. Jason Patric and Sandra Bullock don't really have a whole lot of chemistry. It isn't as well developed as it was in the first Speed movie. I'm sure that even if Keanu Reeves had appeared in this movie it wouldn't have saved it from becoming a mess anyhow.
William Dafoe doesn't make for the greatest villian either (who would've thought that five years later he'd be the Green Goblin in the blockbuster hit: Spider Man?). He has the potential to be a great mad bomber but somehow he misses what the bomber in the first movie had. That would be his lack of remorse and intelligence.

3.0 out of 5 stars Defiantly not as Good as the first Nov. 9 2003
By Megz
it was alright, but i can't say it was better or as good as the first. i strongly recommend watching the first, then watching the second.

1.0 out of 5 stars Jason Patric what the **ck were you thinking man Nov. 6 2003
im a fan of Jason Patric and this is my lesser favorites of his. man im glad Keanu "Neo" Reeves left because if he made this one he would be like, well you all would know what would happen. here's the story, Patric works for the same guys as Keanu worked for(lucky turnout) and what do you know, Sandra Bullock finds out about this. Patric takes Bullock on a cruise ship where Willem Dafoe comes and wrecks havoc on the ship and then in the end it crashes into a mainland. you getting me so far people because this movie makes the original look like watergarbage but the original isnt, its way the hell better then this one. Glenn Plummer, Termurea Morrison, Joe Morton and Colleen Camp are all wasted in this washedout sequel. Jason Patric...what the **ck!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars come on people it was not that bad Oct. 13 2003
By A Customer
Ok i will admit the movie does have its flaws here and there. just because Keanu(iam the one neo)reeves is not in this movie does not mean it is bad they actually do a good job of tying the lose ends up.the main flaw of the picture is basically jason patrics bland acting he has an atitude like he knows the sequel will fail.in most ways sandra bullock is better then the first. the film has a load of action and SPEED as you might say so before you neglest this fallen gem you may want to add it to you library.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is proof that Keanu can think. Who knew? Sept. 27 2003
Watching this movie is like watching paint dry. Only, when it's done, the paint is dry and you still haven't seen a decent movie. Sandra Bullock should have known better. Keanu Reeves apparently did, as he jumped ship before this one sailed. Jason Geddrick takes over as love interest here. Willem Dafoe chews up any scenery that might be left after a painfully long, and pitifully staged ending sequence.
If you enjoy torturing yourself, or like to make fun of movies as you watch them... this one is for you.
