A young police officer must prevent a bomb exploding aboard a city bus by keeping its speed above 50 mph.
Voted one of AFI's Top 100 Heart-Pounding Movies of all time: number 99.
Hey, this area's restricted.
Howard Payne: Oh, hi. Yeah, I know. They called me down here. Some of this wiring got screwed up.
Workman: Nobody called it down to me. I'm going to have to see a work order.
Howard Payne: Yeah, just a second. There you are.
Howard Payne: Nothing personal.
When Howard Payne is in the elevator, he hears Jack and Harry doing something from above, and he reaches for his bomb trigger. In slow motion when he's picking it up, it has two buttons on it, yet when Howard pushes one of the buttons, the device now has three.
The Australian free-to-air version is cut (poorly) for language. The word 'fuck' is still retained in one scene for humor purposes when the passenger is asked to relay what Jack is saying back to headquarters.
