    Movies like this embrace goofiness with an almost sensual pleasure.

    The last half-hour is a decent enough ride, with Dafoe controlling the ship by Powerbook and product placement, while Bullock and Patric demonstrate the triumph of American gumption over high tech, the better to save all hands on deck.
  3. Despite huge resources at Mr. De Bont's disposal and the fact that both he and Ms. Bullock have achieved stellar status since ''Speed'' screeched onto movie screens, the sequel is still a B-movie at heart.
  4. Though it displays enough perils to put a dent in future cruise ship sales, the film has a makeshift, slapdash quality that is the opposite of its predecessor.
  5. The 1994 "Speed," which starred Bullock and Keanu Reeves, was hardly "King Lear" on a bus, but it was an entertaining ride. But this movie is nothing but pain to sit through.
  6. But like De Bont's awful "Twister", Speed 2: Cruise Control somehow manages to fail in every way.

Not as good as the original "Speed" was: I sorely missed Keanu Reeves, and the plot wasn't that good either. Expand

Jan De Bont had a tough bite to chew offThe original was a classic, even with Keanu Reeves' wooden acting, and that's a hard act to follow. Jan De Bont had a tough bite to chew off coming up with a sequel. It's not awful but it really misses a lot of marks. Pacing, identification with minor characters, and chemistry for example really slowed the film down. Which is ironic given the title of the film. For extras it really isn't that critical that they have some acting chops, however it does matter when they are so awful they botch simple human reaction to a crisis the action realism takes a hit. Luckily for S2:CC it had Willem DaFoe to prop everything up. Otherwise I wouldn't even bother giving this movie a score. Expand

    A terrible sequel. But its action can sometimes prove its worth.

    A cruise that was already sunken before the cruise was actually getting started. Guess what happens to it next? I've not seen any fish thatA cruise that was already sunken before the cruise was actually getting started. Guess what happens to it next? I've not seen any fish that can eat cruises, but I believe I saw one swallowing up this entire cruise whole after it sunk. If I had a DVD copy of this movie, I'd only watch the trailers from movies, the THX logo, and look more into this movie than actually seeing the whole movie itself. Expand

    Speed was like witnessing the first time Keanu Reeves rode a bike. It was a modestly entertaining film that revealed why Keanu captured the Speed was like witnessing the first time Keanu Reeves rode a bike. It was a modestly entertaining film that revealed why Keanu captured the role in the original Matrix. Speed 2, in comparison, was like recieving an enema the size of a Boeing 747. It's really, really bad. Expand
