Speed 2: Cruise Control

Annie (Sandra Bullock) and her new boyfriend (Jason Patric) go on a Caribbean cruise with a luxury liner, but the ship is taken over by John Geiger (Willem Dafoe) who wants revenge on his former employers. The first movie did everything right, the sequel did everything wrong. Throwing in bombs and chases just because action movies require them, there is little logic in the story. The characters keep doing stupid things, there is no tension and Dafoe’s villain is just another boring madman.

1997-U.S. 121 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Jan De Bont. Cast: Sandra Bullock (Annie Porter), Jason Patric (Alex Shaw), Willem Dafoe (John Geiger), Temuera Morrison, Brian McCardie, Christine Firkins… Lois Chiles, Bo Svenson.

Trivia: Gary Oldman was considered for the part of Geiger; Matthew McConaughey as Shaw.
