Product Description

Amazon.ca

Everything clicked in this 1994 action hit, from the premise (a city bus has to keep moving at 50 mph or blow up) to the two leads (the usually inscrutable Keanu Reeves and the cute-as-a-button Sandra Bullock) to the villain (Dennis Hopper in psycho mode) to the director (Jan De Bont, who made this film hit the ground running with an edge-of-your-seat opening sequence on a broken elevator). This is the sort of movie that becomes a prototype for a thousand lesser films (including De Bont's lousy sequel, Speed 2: Cruise Control), but Speed really is a one-of-a-kind experience almost anyone can enjoy. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this one while you can... Dec 4 2013
By Simon Bergeron TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Much has been said about this movie from the 90s (2014 marks it's already 20th anniversary... that makes me feel sooooo much younger), but one thing you should know is that the entire second disc isn't found on the blu-ray.

Having loads of interviews, behind the scenes footage, deleted scenes, trailers and more, this is THE special edition par excellence to get.

I'm a sucker for meaningful and over-prolonged special features (I blame Peter Jackson's Frighteners for that), and so this may not equal a 4-hour long documentary, but we do get loads of fun watching the making of featurettes and interviews.

4.0 out of 5 stars solid action,nail biting tension Aug. 20 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
before this movie,who knew Keanu Reeves could be a credible action
hero?Reeves impressed me with this effort.he put on a few pounds of
muscle for this one.Sandra Bullock is also in this one,and although her
character is likable,she just doesn't make the same impression as
Reeves does.i guess part of the reason is that her character really
isn't the focus,which can't really be blamed on her.Dennis hopper has a
nice turn as a sadistic villain.aside from the acting though,there are
a lot of good things about this movie.one is the relentless action.this
thing really movies.it's also a real nail biter at times.the writing by
Graham Yost is also good,as is the direction of Jan de Bont.as far as
action movies go,this one is right up there,in my opinion.i give
"Speed" a solid 4/5

5.0 out of 5 stars I keep coming back July 6 2004
Format:DVD
SPEED has been one of the handful of movies made in the last ten years that I keep coming back to again and again when I need an action fix. I think it's partly because its premise is so impossibly simple: there's a bomb on a bus that will go boom if the bus goes below 50 miles per hour. That's it. I also think it's also because for all the noise and action, it really doesn't take itself too seriously. Everyone, even the usually sulking Jeff Daniels, appears to be having a good time. And, of course, it doesn't hurt to have the maniacal Dennis Hopper performing opposite Keanu Reeves who is properly underplaying his role as HERO.
SPEED, I admit, is a no-brainer. But if I wanted to watch something cerebral and intellectual, there are plenty of others to choose from. I mean, from which to choose.

5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting rollercoaster ride June 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This film is a terrific action adventure with an appealing hero and heroine, great stunts and special effects and a psycho villain who isn't as smart as he thinks he is. The movie races along through three tense episodes involving patrons on a high-rise elevator, passengers caught on a runaway city bus and a rapid transit train coursing through the dark tunnels of the under-construction Los Angeles subway system. Good-guy Jack Traven [Keanu Reeves] gets a great assist from feisty Annie Porter [Sandra Bullock] as she guides the bus on a wild ride on LA's freeways and busy streets while crazed extortionist Howard Payne [Dennis Hopper] does his best to make sure his diabolical plan doesn't fail. Even if the picture seems to borrow elements from some popular action films, this movie is a rollercoaster ride from start to finish and fans of exciting train action sequences will really enjoy the film's endgame which is a climactic struggle between good and evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lift,bus,train. 16th april 2004. April 16 2004
Format:DVD
A great film for the actions. It starts off in a lift that breaks down, then it goes onto a bus that once it reaches 50mile an hour, it can't go below that speed cos there is a bomb on the bus. Then in the end, the last 2 that are on the train find a way to get off, but they can't. Superb film even if you don't like any action films and shooting films.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best action films I've seen. March 19 2004
By Eric
Format:DVD
Keanu Reeves is a rarity: he's a second-rate actor (at least compared to other big movie stars like Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford) who has kept his career afloat courtesy of a critically and commercially successful film every now and then. These films usually have the tendency to keep his big-screen acting career going steady for another four to five years, by which then he somehow latches on to another big hit. I hear he's going to be starring in the period epic Tripoli, so expect his career to extend to at least 2011.
Speed is one such film, his second after Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure), but it's one of those much-hyped blockbusters that's actually worth of all the acclaim it's received and then some. Bringing together a highly unlikely cast (Reeves, Dennis Hopper, Jeff Daniels, and a then unknown Sandra Bullock) and first-time director Jan De Bont, it must have spelled a recipe for disaster.
But by miracle or just pure filmmaking bravado (more the latter than the former, though if the film had been made yeseterday, I might be more inclined to agree with the former), they pulled off a great action film, one of the best ever.
After beginning with what must be one of the most intense opening credits sequences, the plot quickly gets underway. Mad bomber Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper) has just rigged explosives to drop an elevator and its apparently wealthy occupants down quite a few floors to their deaths. But his plan to extort $3.7 million is foiled by quick-thinking LAPD cop Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves) and his partner (Jeff Daniels, in pretty much the thankless role that really doesn't go anywhere).
Out for revenge, Payne raises the stakes further in his ransom demands by rigging a bomb under a city bus.
