Willem Dafoe, though effective in nearly every villain role, is a bit overdone as a psychopath with a penchant for leech therapy.

They spent double, maybe even four times as much as they did on Speed...and it's terrible.
June 25, 2020
They truly ruined a whole franchise in just two movies...never seen something like this, can't even reboot it now...

It's not really worth sinking your time and money into. This movie is more floundering than fun.
June 20, 2014
An ear-splitting amusement-park attraction posing as a movie.
June 20, 2014
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.
June 20, 2014
Familiarity quickly breeds contempt, with Bullock rather obviously just along for the ride.

Speed 2's a test of patience.
May 29, 2013
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.
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.
May 28, 2013
A movie that is blessedly bad enough to ensure that there will be no Speed 3.
May 28, 2013
[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
It's all idiotic but energetic, directed by Jan De Bont in his usual techno-action style.
May 28, 2013
The wind goes out of this tub's sails long before it reaches port.
