"What happened?"

SPEED!!! We have all seen the first one and what a great film it is. One of the best films around and has some really good actors in it. Well worth seeing.

SPEED 2!!! Its not as good as you may think. For a sequel to the first film, the director really has messed up. First thing is a film called Speed cannot really be located on a boat. The film is meant to be a fast action packed film but we don’t have that here. What we have is a film that has a very poor storyline poor acting and no surprises. Keanu Reeves is not even in it and he was the main character no body can take his place in the film. He has been replaced by Jason Patric who I am sorry to say does not perform to well in this film. The bad guy is played by Willem Dafoe (Spiderman) and he does not perform to his full potential either. In general this film is not worth the time to see it. And has ruined the speed films for many people. Just like the Matrix Revolutions that was not as good as the first two films. SPEED 2 CRUISE CONTROL is a Hugh mess and it is no way gripping enough to get people into it. The fight scenes are very poor and some of the worse I have seen, however the film does contain a few nice effects and is no where near as bad as some films with a similar storyline. Don't get me wrong this film could well be worth seeing once but I am most certain that you will not be as impressed as the first film. The film also happens to be unrealistic in some places especially the end scene with the boat crashing into the Seashore town.

Sorry to all the fans of this film but it just did not do it for me.

Manufacturer's product description

Spry "Speed" survivor Annie Porter (Bullock) can't seem to escape maniacal terrorists, as she discovers soon after boarding a posh luxury liner with her engagement-minded boyfriend, Alex. The bad news is that the disgruntled--and recently fired--mastermind behind the ship's electronic control systems wants revenge against the ship's management, so he sets the ship on a collision course with such deadly targets as an offshore oil tanker. The good news is that Alex has been training on the sly with an elite LAPD SWAT team, so the plucky pair resolves to save their fellow passengers.
