Home / Now Showing / SPEED
Get ready for rush hour with this blockbuster action thriller!. When bomber-with-a-grudge Dennis Hopper rigs a Southern California bus to explode if its speed drops below 50 m.p.h., SWAT officer Keanu Reeves races to defuse the situation, aided by passenger Sandra Bullock. Jan de Bont’s feature debut earned two Oscars for sound (and an editing nomination). “Films like SPEED belong to the genre I call Bruised Forearm Movies, because you’re always grabbing the arm of the person sitting next to you. Done wrong, they seem like tired replays of old chase cliches. Done well, they’re fun. Done as well as SPEED, they generate a kind of manic exhilaration” – Roger Ebert, Cicago Sun Times.
