Speed ★★★★★

"Guts will get you so far and then they'll get you killed."

Speed is a virtually perfect film. True to its name features a plot that ramps up to highway speeds and never decelerates. Every time you suspect the film has crescendoed and the plot may have resolved, it ascends to yet another height of tension. Keanu Reeves is convincingly heroic and resourceful, Sandra Bullock is not merely (likewise) phenomenally capable and resourceful, but also incredibly appealing in her determined, spunky and often snarky persona. Overall, one can see "Speed" for the adrenaline rush, the adorable romance or both and still be satisfied on all counts.
