    A substandard ebony-and-ivory buddy pic.
  2. If you're the kind of person who goes to the movies primarily to watch faces melt to pulp, you won't be disappointed.
  3. Melts swiftly...don't expect a shred of credibility.

    Utterly lacking the drive and roller-coaster energy expected of top action pics, this latest try at repackaging "Speed" is a Kmart version of a Jerry Bruckheimer production.
  5. An irredeemably transparent... DIRECT RIPPING OFF OF "SPEED."

    Skeet Ulrich continues to disappoint in one high-profile project after another.
  7. This poor excuse for a thriller turns, with a great crunching of gears, into a mess of a buddy comedy. Either way, it misfires.

    Gooding plays the worst role I've ever seen him play in a movie...he perpetuates a kind of black stereotype that should have become history years ago.
  9. God-awful?Gooding screams out lines like ''I'm about to get in yo' ass like last year's underwear!''

    "Speed" with a thermometer, only a whole lot worse.

    As worthless a piece of garbage as we've seen this year.
