Speed 2 is the most exciting to date of this summer's big action pictures.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 1, 2000
Movies like this embrace goofiness with an almost sensual pleasure. And so, on a warm summer evening, do I.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 20, 2014
An ear-splitting amusement-park attraction posing as a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

First, the good news: Unlike most action film sequels, Speed 2: Cruise Control is not a mere retread of the original. Now the bad news: Better it had been.
June 20, 2014
There's very little to tell about the story that you can't figure out from the two-minute trailer.

June 20, 2014
De Bont's annoyingly jerky camera seldom stays still, the personable and appealing Bullock is given virtually nothing to do, [and] the plot twists range from the incredible to the absurd.

Familiarity quickly breeds contempt, with Bullock rather obviously just along for the ride.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Speed 2's a test of patience.

It's all very disappointing.
May 28, 2013
Speed 2 is frantic action, tinny dialogue, perfunctory characterization and tried-and-false plot pilferings.
May 28, 2013
Action heroes are best when they are charming, winsome and witty. Bullock is inane, annoying and whiny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
May 28, 2013
De Bont remains an expert director of action, but putting the reference to cruise control in the title serves as fair warning of an unengaged filmmaker on automatic pilot.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 28, 2013
A movie that is blessedly bad enough to ensure that there will be no Speed 3.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
May 28, 2013
[A] truly horrid sequel.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 28, 2013
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?
May 28, 2013
The human propensity to tamper with a good thing is probably ineluctable.
May 28, 2013
It's all idiotic but energetic, directed by Jan De Bont in his usual techno-action style.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 28, 2013
The wind goes out of this tub's sails long before it reaches port.
May 28, 2013
In Speed 2, De Bont is, so to speak, at sea.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 7, 2011
It's a complete lack of story that explains why this expensive production from the proficient creator of Speed and Twister sputters out on the high seas.
