Reductively called "DIE HARD on wheels", SPEED, directed by DIE HARD's cinematographer Jan de Bont, busts out from that film's shadow to become one of cinema's most acclaimed and successful action films. With star-making performances from Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock in the lead, SPEED is a literal thrill-ride on wheels in which a madman plants a bomb on a bus that detonates if it goes under 50 mph. Crafted with supreme confidence by de Bont, SPEED is the gold standard for blockbuster entertainment: bold, over-the-top, and a genuinely great piece of filmmaking.
