Speed is probably the best Die Hard clone ever made. The high-concept idea for a hostage trap is fresh and they get a lot of mileage (heh) out of it. The problems to make it the worst situation ever, and our heroes are clever and daring in their solutions. So while I do like the elevator prologue that sets most of the characters up, the last act train ride is surplus to requirements. It feels like the true climax is Jack and Annie finally escaping the bus, and the rest is merely a plot necessity, except the best is all behind us. And still, all the actors are great in this. It was a star-making role for Sandra Bullock who immediately captures out attention. Keanu Reeves is as cocky here as he was in Point Break but more pleasant. Jeff Daniels makes me wish he'd done more action flicks, and Joe Morton plays a police captain that ISN'T an obstructionist (which is fresh in and of itself!). And of course, there's Dennis Hopper being Dennis Hopper and it's highly entertaining, man! As for director Jan de Bont, he builds the tension very well and even gives the film a visual beauty that could be cousin to Bigelow, Besson or Hong Kong. De Bont was always a better cinematographer than director (he filmed Die Hard, not coincidentally), but here everything falls into place to create a literal thrill ride.

This is the most intense action movie I ever seen. No doubt about that.

As I was watching this, seriously, I got curse words coming out of my mouth already and I not even halfway of the movie yet.

No more than an extended action sequence bookended by action sequences but it holds up pretty well; good bomb-based fun. 7/10.

I'm a huge fan of Keanu Reeves. For me, one of the best. The scene kiss is epic, and his face is so awesome!!!
