Los Angeles is facing the threat of a bomber played by Dennis Hopper who demands ransoms or he’ll blow people up. Facing him down is Keanu Reeves as a LAPD bomb specialist. Obviously the movie is all about the situations Hopper puts the police in.
What the movie is known for is Hopper putting a bomb on a bus that has to keep driving at 50 mph or more or it will blow up. The writers went all out on this throwing in all kinds of unbelievable and over the top situations. The biggest is the idea that in the middle of the day they could find a stretch of freeway in Los Angeles without traffic. Despite that the movie was still fun and a thrill ride, you just had to go with the flow. C
