There's very little to tell about the story that you can't figure out from the two-minute trailer.

Action heroes are best when they are charming, winsome and witty. Bullock is inane, annoying and whiny.

Speed cost something like $30 million; this sequel cost four times as much. So why is it such a feeble, aimless piece of junk in comparison?

It droned, it rumbled and it just wouldn't stop.

Speed 2 can be numbered among the worst second chapters ever made.

Speed 2 is frantic action, tinny dialogue, perfunctory characterization and tried-and-false plot pilferings.

Familiarity quickly breeds contempt, with Bullock rather obviously just along for the ride.

What a reeking bag of nothingness! What emptiness, what vaporous vapidity! What rot, stink, and whiff of mold spore!

Do yourself a favor and see a movie instead.

Just about as bad as they come.

De Bont botches nearly all opportunities for suspense.

Dafoe's take on Dennis Hopper's Hopper impersonation is plain pointless; Bullock too is wasted in a ditzy half-role; and Patric is unsmiling and resolutely uncharismatic.

There went two hours of my life that I shall never see again.

The most un-called for sequel in recent memory.

Se 'Twister' era um insulto, 'Velocidade Máxima 2' é uma tentativa de homicídio.

Palo Alto Weekly
May 14, 2003
A dizzying array of badly edited action snippets give the impression of excitement, but only add to the confusion.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

When some people talk about how much they loathed 1997's Big Boat Movie, I think they must mean this one.

De Bont simply reprises the first film.

A waterlogged sequel that'll soon be bottom-feeding with Beyond the Poseidon Adventure.
