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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Speed 2 needs to slow down! March 23 2004
Format:DVD
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.

Speed 2 is what you would get if you crossed an episode of Chip and Pepper's cartoon madness and a ripe blood fart - a real piece of whale sh-t. Speed, although ridiculous and totally unrealistic, was a very enjoyable film. So much so, that when I was a lad after I saw Speed I secured a bomb to the bottom of my mother and father's stations wagon and held them hostage for 15 hours while they sped through the suburban streets of Gainsville, Tennessee. Oh, the poo poo of it all! Unfortunately, there was no Keanu to bail them out - although after the explosion they traded their heads and became zombie bounty hunters for the galaxy of blunk-do. That's a whole other story revolving around apes and the ancient race of Horps el Thwipples. Crazy sh-t. Anyhoo, Speed 2 was so bad that I rented a yacht from the local deli and drove it into the Vatican (Vatican Diner that is). Great cheese fries and gravy there. Very much in the vain of the Speed franchise. They named them the 'Whim of a mad fries and gravy man.' Every time you eat a fry the computer chip in it burns a frame of Speed 2 onto your skull. It makes you speak and communicate only in the language of Speed. For example. 'How do you like your burgr cooked?' Reply: 'Cans.' OR 'Would you like fries with that?' Answer: 'Don't get dead.' See? Wonderful isn't it? So just remember if you want to bleed from your ballhead and have Sandra Bullock's annoying face grafted to your skull then RENT this movie because otherwise: 'You're gonna pay me every dollar.'

Format:DVD
Speed 2: Cruise Control (1998)
Starring: Sandra Bullock, Jason Patric, Willem Dafoe
Directed By: Jan de Bont
Rated: PG-13
Running Time: 121 minutes

"A waterlogged sequel that'll soon be bottom-feeding with Beyond the Poseidon Adventure."

The Love Boat meets Air Force One
Speed 2: Cruise Control was one whacked-out movie. Throwing the thrilling dramatic elements of the first film overboard, all it has left is the action...and some dude called Jason Patric.
One sure thing that can be said about this movie is its special effects are fabulous. We're talking big money effects, including that oh-so-cool finale where the Seabourn Legend (the ship) crashes into a resort town.
___________________________________________________________
The Plot
Trouble continues to follow LA citizen Annie Porter when she and her new hubby (a stone-faced Jason Patric) book a tropical cruise on the Seabourn Legend cruise ship. A crazed computer hacker (Willem Dafoe) has taken over the ship and is setting on a course to destruction...to some sort of some tanker, I guess, that would've exploded (and ends up exploding anyway, but the ship is safe, of course). So, of course, Annie and her beau attempt (meaning they will of course succeed) to save the ship and its passengers.
__________________________________________________________
The Cast
Sandra Bullock as Annie Porter
(Speed, 28 Days, Two Weeks Notice)
Ms. Bullock, easily my favorite actress, gives a good, if not great, performance, in an iffy-at-best action movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars OH COME ON PEOPLE, IT WASN'T THAT BAD April 11 2003
By bart
Format:VHS Tape
Why so hated??? What is about this film that poeple hate it so much. Truly enough SPEED 2 doen't live up to the original at all but it isn't a bad movie. And truly enough the first SPEED didn't need a sequel but it is not like this movie gave the name "speed" a bad name. I didn't love this movie, but I didn't hate it either, I kinda liked it and I'd probobly watch it when it comes on tv. So this time time we are on a cruise ship being taken over by a maniac (Willam Dafoe, the guy who played the Green Goblin in SPIDERMAN) who plans to have it crash somewhere and we don't have a bus being forced to move 50mph-BIG DEAL. The makers tried to do something different and that doesn't mean there new idea [stinks]. Anyway here is the plot....
It has now been a few a years since the whole bus incident nad Anni (Sandra Bullock) has left Jack . She now has a new buyfriend Alex (Jason Patric) who happens to be a cop like just like Jack but Annie doesn't know know that. One day Annie runs into Alex when he was on duty snd figures everything out. Then comes the "I think we should see other people" thing but then Alex brings her cruise tickets so they can go together on vacation and work everything out. As they go on vacation, everything may actually may seem to go right. There having a good time and nmothing is wrong; that is what they think. It seems that one guest on the ship named Geiger (Willam Dafoe) plans to urn everybody's nice relaxing vacation into a total disaster. Geiger is a super yet mental computer genius. Using his knowledge, Geiger manages to put the ship under his controll and sends the ship on a one way trip to hell- literally!!! Annie and the help of Alex try to do what the can to stop this lunatic and save the people on the ship.
So that is pretty much the plot.
