There's something magical going on in Jake Speed, something that transcends the B-movie action and the occasionally clumsy moments.

Grade-Z Romancing the Stone ripoff that's deadlier than cobra venom.

Audience Reviews for Jake Speed

½

Yet another film which has flashes of Indiana Jones, or maybe, more accurately, Romancing the Stone. Based on pulp comic mens adventure type books, this story follows an adventurer hired to save a woman's sister from white slavery. Much the same set-up as Eaten Alive or even Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death, but none of those movies are at all similar. The humor was for the most part lost on me as I didnt care for the actor delivery of the material (which he, apparently, wrote).
