Speed 2 - Cruise Control Reviews

June 20, 2014
An ear-splitting amusement-park attraction posing as a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 28, 2013
Speed 2 is frantic action, tinny dialogue, perfunctory characterization and tried-and-false plot pilferings.
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.

[A] truly horrid sequel.

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
In Speed 2, De Bont is, so to speak, at sea.

Speed 2 is the most exciting to date of this summer's big action pictures.

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.

Do yourself a favor and see a movie instead.

[It] sinks faster than a rock.
September 1, 2008
Speed 2 suffers from a slender script, a tedious first reel and a routine villain who lacks the entertaining menace that Speed's diabolical madman projected.
February 9, 2006
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.
May 20, 2003
Speed 2 doesn't have much in mind besides convincing an audience that a runaway ocean liner is a dynamic menace. Fine, but it doesn't beat a runaway bus.
February 14, 2001
Even the film's big-ticket closing stunts are more impressive for their size than for any excitement they generate.

They keep getting worse and worse and worse . . .

Movies like this embrace goofiness with an almost sensual pleasure. And so, on a warm summer evening, do I.

I hope that somewhere Keanu Reeves is laughing about being considered a nonactor while the wax dummy Jason Patric has somehow achieved a rep as intense and gifted.
January 1, 2000
A waterlogged sequel that'll soon be bottom-feeding with Beyond the Poseidon Adventure.

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

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