About the Movie

Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves), an LAPD cop on SWAT detail, has a fearless nature and a keen understanding of the criminal mind. That, and some luck have kept him alive. But Jack's luck is being put to the ultimate test. An elusive bomber-extortionist Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper) is seeking vengeance after his latest ransom scheme is thwarted. Payne gives a personal challenge to Jack: A bomb is rigged on a city bus, which will detonate if the speedometer drops below 50 MPH. Poor Annie (Sandra Bullock) gets shoved into the driver's seat, while Jack does his best to save the day.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Cleverer action films (Die Hard II and The Fugitive, for instance) deliver more sardonic intelligence, but this one still gets the job done. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jun 14, 2009

Fresh: The smart and sassy Bullock is a knockout. She makes us believe the impossible things Annie is doing and, better, makes us care. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 11, 2014

Fresh: Talk about simple. But the film's sheer cut-to-the-chase straightfowardness is part of its appeal. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Athough it hits any number of gaping credibility potholes on its careening journey around Los Angeles, Speed delivers the goods as a non-stop actioner that scarcely pauses to take a breath. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Mar 11, 2011

A Classic...

SPEED's one of those films made in the early '90s that revitalized action films -- like Die Hard. This film has a lot of stuff many come to love with balls to the wall suspense and action. The "don't go under 50 mph or die" concept is creative and terrifying, making you wish: "God, I hope I'm NEVER in a situation like that!" The villain is creepy, and the tricks and maneuvers that Keanu creates are interesting. The only drawback to the film is the ending. It just kind of pulls back as everyone ................................................................................... and then it's fade to black and then the end. Overall, SPEED is a film you must watch. It's certainly not the greatest film ever, nor the greatest action-flick ever created, but it definitely lives up to its premise and delivers what everyone is looking for. Buy/rent.

back in the day

this is one of those films thats worth the money. it seems like now a days, action films force themselves into a wickedly strange plot to try to be the next sixth sense and put more money into each explosion than into any actors. this is a film that you just love everybody in the movie becuase the acting is great as well as the original story line. sure, its no oscar winning type of film but if your at home looking for a fun film to watch, SPEED is the right movie for you.


an extremely badly acted and cheesily written take off of Die Hard. it does have some well shot stunts.
