Gideon Lawrence’s review published on Letterboxd:
With pulse-pounding action, thrill-a-minute pacing, and a killer 90’s aesthetic, it’s no wonder 1994’s ‘Speed’ has held up for all these decades. Oh god, oh god, shit, they hooked a bomb up to my computer while I was sleeping, and if I stop typing this ‘Speed’ review, it’s gonna blow.
‘Speed’ follows Los Angeles police officer, um, shit what’s his name? I’d Google it but I certainly can’t do that right now because switching applications would trigger what appears to be the multiple bricks of C4 wired to my computer. Anyway, it follows a cop played by Keanu Reeves who finds himself trapped on a bus that’s rigged to explode if its speed dips below 55 miles per hour. Oh shit, I’m just remembering now that my kids are in the other room. Fuck.
