3.0 out of 5 starsAverage to good film. Don't expect too much with sequals....

Not sure what happened to Keanu Reeves character in the story, but it's pretty clear that they wanted to build the franchise around Sandra Bullock. With that being said, the hero role just wasn't there. It felt like a senseless comedy movie, rather than a serious action drama. In that regards, the comedy parts were good, and if you're hoping for this to be a good action movie you might be disappointing. William Da Foe' is still one of my all time favorite actors in the movie and was funny to watch him act on screen. As a villain, he seemed like a small timer, not a professional smooth criminal like Dennis Hopper in the first movie. Overall, first one was better, this was worth me watching it only once for the first time. LOL, check out the high- tech IBM laptop computer that William Da Foe' uses to high jack the ship!

My 35 yr. old handicapped/100% blind & CP son watches (listens to) this movie over & over & over again. It’s probably his 2nd favorite movie, Titanic is his 1st. Just hoping he doesn’t repeat the swearing!

3.0 out of 5 starsTHE BRONZE STANDARD
Verified purchase
the first film took itself entirely too seriously . i was not enamoured of MS. BULLOCK in the first picture (as i am now) . having seen SPEED at the time of release , my impression was of an adequate action movie with a young actress chronically on the verge of laughing at her predicament and that of the folks on the bus . it took me out of the picture . this film , on the other hand , has the will to be bad and strongly rolls the bones in that direction . i'm a WILLEM DEFOE fan first and foremost . i very much enjoy DENNIS HOPPER . but i favor DEFOE as the heavy here . i love that the film is set at sea (and that there is a spectacular crash at the end) . i feel JASON PATRIC is better suited to this particular character (his easy charm and quiet charisma) than the much liked KEANU REEVES (i own a number of pictures with MR. REEVES and enjoy his acting . POINT BREAK , STREET KINGS , MATRIX , etc) . i feel very manipulated by this "DUMB" film and i like it . i've seen SPEED 2 several times now and it never fails to amuse and entertain me . i get to see a fair amount of the quite lovely MS. BULLOCK as well and consider that a charming plus . her chemistry with MR. PATRIC seems quite natural . write what you will . i can't be dissuaded from liking this silly little diversion .

5.0 out of 5 starsThis is one of my favorite movies. It is not my top favorite one ...

This is one of my favorite movies. It is not my top favorite one like Speed part 1, but it is still exciting to watch. I would act it out in the swimming pool as the hero when I was a child, and save the day. If you want to imagine yourself in tropical paradise, and have action on your dream vacation, watch this movie as a motivation for your daydreaming. I would book it as an excellent adventure movie. (haha. Book it as in book a vacation.)

3.0 out of 5 starsGood flick for the entertainmnet, but the producers really "lose it" towards the end.
Verified purchase
Overall, it was "ok" for the entertainment value; that said however, this was definitely NOT one of Willem Defoe's best film's - if I didn't know any better, I'd tend to think he was almost "desperate" for work the day he accepted this acting assignment. His character was WAY too "overly-melodramatic" to be believable.

4.0 out of 5 starsGood Action, Dated Script
Verified purchase
Acting was good, story is ok, but the script is goofy at times - some really dated one-liners, overall entertaining but won't watch again.

4.0 out of 5 starsFirst of all I really enjoyed the 1994 movie "Speed' with Keanu Reeves
Verified purchase
First of all I really enjoyed the 1994 movie "Speed' starring Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock,& Dennis Hopper. It was the best action thriller I've seen since Die Hard ! However I did enjoy the 1997 sequel ''Speed 2: Cruise Control" as much as I did the first speed. Even though Keanu didn't want nothing to do with the sequel in which I was disappointed about, in which Reeves was replaced with actor Jason Patric who starred in the movie ''the Lost Boys'', which I thought who did an amazing job portraying Alex Shaw, in which he plays Annie's (bullock) new boyfriend. I liked the fact that Jan DeBont brought back Sandra Bullock to reprise her role as Annie Porter. Also I like the new villain Geiger who was portrayed by Willem Dafoe who later played the villain '' The Green Goblin'' in the 2002 movie Spider-Man, which I thought Geiger was really crazy in the movie . Fun fact, both Speed 1 &2 came out a year before me and my brother were born. Speed came out in1994, and my brother was born in 1995, and Speed 2: Cruise Control came out in 1997, and I was born in 1998 ! Isn't that an amazing fun fact ! All in all I give Speed 2: Cruise Control 4/5 stars. Good movieHold on to your life jackets !
