| Speed 2: Snooze control
Now I liked Sandra Bullock in the original Speed. I even liked her in that film where she went into a beauty pageant. But in this monstrosity, I just wanted to slap her repeatedly and say "What are you doing!?"

She is just dire. Not in acting (well... any more than usual, anyway) but just in the way her character made you want to shake her until she regained some sense. Whoever was responsible for the script needs a good beating here. Unless I am completely mistaken, her character between the events of the first film and this one, turned into a complete and total airhead bimbo.

Add in Jason Patric (who will never be leading man material) and it seems that only Willem Dafoe was having any fun. Truly awful!

But it is good to see that ocean liners, which may have to weather tropical storms, apparently have windows made of glass so easy to break that anyone can hurl themselves through them on a whim. Priceless cinema.

Avoid this one if you liked the original.

Avoid this one if you expect a thrilling sea drama.

Avoid this one if you like Sandra Bullock.

Avoid this one if....well....just avoid it.

Quotes

Annie Porter: Jack, he was never the romantic type. For our anniversary he gives me pepper spray. PEPPER SPRAY. I think it's perfume. I end up in the emergency room.


Goofs

You cannot walk into a ballast tank from the accommodation areas. The tanks are not painted white on the inside, and electric lights are not installed in ballast tanks. And finally, when filling ballast tanks, it is done through a pipe and a pump, not by opening gigantic doors in the ship's hull.


Crazy Credits

No oceans were polluted during the filming of this movie.


Alternate Versions

The network TV version of the film makes the following changes:

  • The final scene of the theatrical version of the film where Annie is repeating her drivers test is shown at the very beginning.
  • An additional scene was added showing Annie and Alex driving to the port and riding a dinghy to the ship where Annie first meets Geiger.
  • The name of the cruise ship was changed to "S.S. Legend".
  • An additional scene was added showing crew of the Eindhoven Lion extinguishing the oil tanker after the bow thruster scene.
