Product Description

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.

Amazon.ca

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.'

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.

A lot can be said about many movies whose original is considered a classic while the sequel is considered a bag of flaming [poop]. While "Speed 2: Cruise Control" is far from being the latter, it still is a huge decline from the terrifying adrenaline levels of the 1994 original to mostly clichéd plotting. Yes, of couse this movie has plenty of things to see, but it doesn't come anywhere close to the adrenaline of the first movie. In fact, this movie should've gone under a different title as it hardly shows the speed of the first one.
The movie is basically about a large ocean liner where Annie is on a vacation in the Bahamas, or somewhere in the Caribbean Ocean when a deranged madman named John Geiger (played by William Dafoe) disables the main engines and takes control of the ship holding all of the passengers hostage. Personally in my opinion, William Dafoe as the madman Geiger does just as great playing the villain as Dennis Hopper did playing the terrorist Howard Payne in the first Speed movie, showing the madness of a hijacker.
It goes downhill for a while after that though with predictable outcomes, fake chemistry, and ridiculous acting by the main character hero. Alex Marshall shows little of the emotional punch, tension, or the rage that Officer Traven showed on the 1994 original. Annie hardly shows the tension, or the fright that she had on the metro bus in the first movie. The chemistry between Bullock and Patric is nowhere near as evident nor as deep as there was between Bullock and Reeves.
This movie definitely has some redeeming moments such as the underwater propeller scenario and the oil tanker exploding but even those don't add up enough to create what I consider a major classic and the overall result is a half-baked plot and a movie that doesn't leave much of any impact behind once it's over. A disappointing but OK follow-up to the dynamite Speed.
