Throwback Thursday: Speed
If you don’t think Speed is an awesome action movie then you are out of your mind. The premise is great; a lunatic puts a bomb on a bus that is designed to go off if the bus goes under 50 mph, then he contacts a hero cop and creepily watches as Sandra Bullock drives public transportation for 90 minutes. It’s just a good thing that he didn’t accidentally set it to go off if it went over 50 mph cause that would have made for a very boring and slow movie; just a bus gingerly strolling through the city adhering to all of the speed limits. I’m surprised they haven’t remade this yet and called it Speed: Europe. This time it’s all in kph instead of mph. American crowds would eat that up.
