Speed stuck like a lightning (no pun here) and lit the box office fire. Keanu Reeves was suddenly an A list action star, next in line to the aging Stallone's and Shwazznegger's. Denis Hopper was rediscovered and suddenly the action genre was well and alive. This was all due to this bomb on the bus blockbuster and It is simply down to good movie making. The bus is the entire set but the action is kinetic and the audience is involved throughout. From a booby-trapped elevator to a bombed bus to a runaway train, this is one pulse-pounding, nitro-fueled film. The acting is also top-notch, and this film is most definitely one of Keanu Reeves' most superb performances. We also can't forget about Dennis Hopper, who brings to his villainous role a sense of morbid humor. What really pulls the film "Speed" together is the exceptional romantic chemistry between the two lead roles. It is certainly one of the most believable I have ever seen.
