The terrorist places a radio-controlled bomb in the bus, which will detonate if the bus speed drops below 80 km / h. After the bus leaves the highway and picks up speed, the explosive device is activated, and the bus itself turns into a “high-speed bomb” with hostages, unable to stop. A security officer, along with a random fellow traveler who finds herself at the wheel of the bus, is looking for a way to save lives.

A very bad person wants money. But he chooses not the easiest way to get them. First, it mines the elevator with passengers, and when this venture fails (there are very good commandos in Los Angeles), it makes a second attempt. This time, the terrorist mines the bus. And to deal with all this will have to special forces officer Jack Traven.
“Speed” is an amazing movie. I watched it 10 times, but I still worry every time. Will Jack have time to catch up with the bus or will not have time, will not turn, will not jump over, will not jump over. And the most important thing is how to get out of the situation with the bomb. In general, the whole film is sitting on pins and needles, even if you know exactly what will happen and when.
I donât know how it happened, and how Jan De Bont managed to do this, the stars probably developed this way (I hope he will not be offended), but the film does not have a single extra detail, not a single extra minute, not a single actor who played the wrong role. … By the way, about the actors.
My name is Jack Traven. Los Angeles Police Department.
You can relate to Keanu Reeves in different ways, but in “Speed” he gave it 100%. Good, insanely good. He does not yet have the image of the savior of mankind, while he trains on the passengers of a separate bus. He manages to calm down passengers, and to talk to the authorities, and to tell the terrorist a couple of gentle words. Well, he is heroic, of course: it is enough to remember his entrance (or jump?) Into the bus. She also smiles so that Sandra Bulok forgets to look at the road.
-I’m going by bus today, because my license was taken away
They say that girls in action films mostly play the main character’s girlfriends. Sandra Balock very convincingly breaks this stereotype. Her Annie, even in such extreme circumstances, feels pretty natural. Drive the bus? Easy! Is there a sharp turn ahead? We will do it without any problems. No road? Nothing, let’s shout, but let’s jump.
And how many times have we already talked about the notorious “chemistry” between Reeves and Bulok. Yes, “chemistry” is in place. When Annie and Jack are talking, and just looking at each other, you think, “Everything is clear with you guys.”
He just wants money.
And finally, our Villain Villainous Dennis Hopper. Uncle wants money (he thinks that the city of Los Angeles owes him something). I see no reason not to believe him, but I will not justify either. After all, if he had not made this mess, I would not have written anything here. In general, Hopper’s negative charm only helps him to play this role. You can see right away – this guy does nothing by half. To be bad, so to the end.
Everything that should be in the film is present here. Drive – as much as you like, from the first to the last minute (well, up to the last three minutes). Surprise is a lot. Dialogues are on the level. Romance (and where without it) – just in industrial quantities, especially in the last three minutes.
And the result is a movie for all times and absolutely for everyone (except perhaps for small children). You constantly have to remind yourself that the film was shot in 1994, but you don’t notice it at all. And in general, while watching it, it is difficult to notice something other than the film, it is so exciting.
