REVIEWS:





"Savvy. .... Smart. .... Breathless. .... The newly bulked-up
Mr. [Keanu] Reeves...winds up doing a terrific job, [and Dennis]
Hopper finds nice new ways to convey crazy menace with each new
role. Certainly he's the most colorful figure in a film that
wastes no time on character development or personality."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; June 10, 1994







"Speed is...a smart, inventive thriller. .... It's wall-to-wall
with action, stunts, special effects and excitement. We've seen
this done before, but seldom so well, or at such a high pitch of
energy. .... The screenplay...piles on complications until the
movie's very construction is a delight. .... Films like 'Speed'
belong to the genre I call Bruised Forearm Movies, because you're
always grabbing the arm of the person sitting next to you. Done
wrong, they seem like tired replays of old chase cliches. Done well,
they're fun. Done as well as 'Speed,' they generate a kind of
manic exhilaration. .... A great entertainment."

-- Roger Ebert; June 10, 1994
