After seeing THE best action movie ever (Speed) I went to this expecting more of the same awesome action.

Instead I was physically sea sick! Sat through the entire thing feeling like I was at sea in a teacup (in the middle of a cyclone), made worse by the terrible acting (even Temuera Morrison wasn't up to par in this) and lame 'action scenes'. The baddie wasn't bad enough, his reasons for hijacking the ship was just plain dumb, and Keanu Reeves, where the heck was he?

This whole flick was over-the-top-bad, trying waaaaay too hard to equal Speed One. But putting all the action on a cruise ship - a SMALL cruise ship at that? There was twice as much action in the elevator scene at the beginning of Speed One!

I found the gigantic tanker explosion, the ship crashing through the dock at the end TOO long and boring. By this time, however, the sea sickness had subsided (probably because the ship had already landed!) The ending would've been easier to bare if the characters hadn't said such dumb cliches....

I think I should've stayed at home....

Did You Know?


Jon Bon Jovi, 'Patrick Muldoon', and Christian Slater were also considered for the male lead.


Alex Shaw: We gotta spend some time together. We'll get to know each other. Let's go away together.
Annie Porter, Alex Shaw: OK, where?
Alex Shaw: Caribbean.
Annie Porter: Oh, the Caribbean, do you have a concussion? We work 6 days a week, Alex. We've never even been away for a weekend.
Alex Shaw: I was gonna surprise ...


While crashing into the dock, the ship decelerates from 6 knots to 5 knots in about 20 seconds. This is apparently enough to throw people forward through the ship's windows, yet in reality this deceleration force would barely be noticeable.
