Speed (1993)

Rating: ***
Director: Jan DeBont
Cast: Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Dennis Hopper, Jeff Daniels

Sure, it's not the greatest film, but the action is top-notch and non-stop. LAPD SWAT officer Keanu Reeves must stop a terrorist madman (Dennis Hopper) who, among other things, has rigged a bus to explode if its speed falls below 50mph. Cute and perky Sandra Bullock ends up driving the bus and it's up to Reeves to save her. Keanu Reeves is perfect for the role as a buff cop and he plays well with Sandra Bullock. Fun and exciting mindless entertainment.
