Free New Speed Movies
By Frank Spears Published: 09/24/2009
Many good action movies were made in the 1990s but one that tops the chart is Speed. The reason why the Speed movie tops the chart of action movies is because it did not follow the same old trend but was made in an extremely unique setting. About 90% of the movie is shot in a bus filled with people going round the city; well you might wonder what is so unique about watching a bus for most of the movie. Well, a psychopath wants to prove his point and has planted a bomb on the bus and is enjoying the scene from the comfort of his house.
The concept of the movie is very simple but the way it is shown is absolutely brilliant. Dennis Hooper plays the role of a twisted maniac called Howard Payne, who has planted a bomb on one of the citys buses. Whats different is that once the bus crosses the 50 mph mark it cannot drop below that speed, if it does, the entire bus will blow up. This unique concept keeps the audience engrossed as the bus passes through different scenarios such as traffic, road blocks and even a flyover that is not completely built.
The hero of the story is Keanu Reeves, playing the character of Officer Jack Traven, who after learning about the bomb from Payne gets on the bus to save the people. Payne needs to settle a personal score with Officer Jack and sets him up to this task. The character of Jack comes across as an intelligent and daring officer who is trying to outwit the maniac and doesnt mind taking risks. One of the most unforgettable moments in the movie is when Officer Jack goes under the bus to defuse the bomb and almost gets killed.
The character of Annie Porter is played by Sandra Bullock. She is one of the few unfortunate people who climb onto this bus and has to quickly adapt to the situation as she takes control of steering wheel after the driver is shot. Her character portrays a strong yet emotional woman, who is trying hard to keep the bus going at over 50 mph in tough conditions. Once she lets go of the steering wheel and almost gets everyone killed because she thinks she has run over a baby stroller but soon finds out to her and others relief, that there was no baby in the stroller.
Overall, the movie is a combination of great acting by the lead stars and amazing action scenes provided by director Jan de Bont. Right from the first scene to last the movie provides sheer adrenaline. The movie also comes with some really catchy bad guy lines that you just cant stop repeating, one such instance is when Officer Jack tells Howard Payne, Youre crazy, Payne replies saying, Poor people are crazy Jack, Im eccentric.
For people who still havent been able to check out this action packed thriller, that won two Oscars but had the potential to win more, can now watch Speed online free of charge on our website. So, what are you waiting for, get your soda, your pop corn and your comfy chair and enjoy the free movie experience.
