| Boring sequel with supercharged action and average pacing
This embarrassing following with similar artist and technician crew is inferior to original starred by Keanu Reeves, Bullock and Dennis Hopper . This moving movie deals with some desperate passengers threatened who are saved by Jason Patric and Sandra Bullock , based on the characters created by Graham Yost. The daredevil L.A.P.D. cop( Jason Patric) and his love interest (Sandra Bullock) taking on an extreme terrorist (Willem Defoe) who wires a cruise that is triggered to explode and where passengers face certain death . The couple on Caribbean cruise holidays hops on board but the captain (Bo Svenson)is killed and the valiant cop takes the wheel .

Mindless, overlong and tiring film is packed with thrills, intrigue, suspense, tension and lots of interminable action. Silly relationship between two main characters, Patrick and Bullock, based on risked circumstances work out pretty bad . Willem Dafoe steals the show as psycho mastermind , Jason Patric is regular as brave, intrepid police and of course Sandra Bullock does her usual role as feisty woman . Ample support cast who play the cruise passengers as Temuera Morrison, Colleen Camp , Lois Chiles, Glenn Plummer , Tim Conway , among others . Ridiculous argument by Jan De Bont , McCormick and Nathanson that dispenses absurd excitement as well as entertainment. Packs colorful and atmospheric cinematography using Steadicam or hand-held camera by Jack N. Green . And stirring and exciting musical score fitting to action by Mark Mancina . The picture is middling realized in his second-time as director by Jan De Bont, a successful cameraman (Basic Instict, Die Hard) and Paul Verhoveen's ordinary photographer and occasionally director (Speed , Twister). The film will appeal to Sandra Bullock fans. Rating : Below average .
