Speed (1994) (2nd time)

A young cop must save the passengers of a bus that has a bomb set to explode if the bus goes below 50 MPH. [imdb]
Nominated for 3 Oscars:

Best Editing
Best Sound (WINNER)
Best Sound Effects (WINNER)

Let’s not waste too much time with this one, ok. :) it’s the type of silly action flick I catch on tv and continue to watch either of nothing-else-to-do or forced by other people. Speed brings people together, but does nothing deep for your brain or soul.

Hey, at least it really introduced Sandra Bullock to the world, after that disastrous Demolition Man. And Keanu: well, ok! Thank you for Keanu too! At least as a feast for the eyes. The Oscar nominations are worthy, I guess; but not sure about the wins. Dennis Hopper is as cartoonish as always, and the dialogue lines plain stupid.

My rating for the film: 5/10. It doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not.
