Speed

Imagine a girl on the rear window car sticker emblazoned with an exclamation point, tea and strange looking shoes with the signature of "respect me". Now imagine this girl behind the wheel of a giant American bus speeding through the city at high speed during rush hour. It looks pretty funny, if you do not know that the bus is mined and can explode if the speedometer drops below fifty miles per hour. Passengers in a panic, the events unfolding at breakneck speed, and the time to explosion is less. In search of the mysterious terrorist, who has already proven the seriousness of its intentions by exploding a crowded Elevator, abandoned by the elite police unit. But time goes, and to trace the offender and fails. In the confrontation with terrorists is entering the best special forces soldier Jack Traven. Now whether he has the right to dispose of the remaining seconds, depend the lives of dozens of people.

Happened to see this movie a chance again with a many-year break. But the film is viewed once, remained in memory, because, stumbled on him television, I got the sofa back, ready with pleasure to spend the next hour and a half. What was my surprisingly, when I learned two Oscars, inherited, it would seem that such a simple bewicke with the acting, not distinguished special depth and drama. However, this in viewing is not noticed absolutely no drawbacks (except for technical part I not special, yeah and the rest of the audience I'm not so sure). "Speed" generates audience interest immediately, and until the very end, after all, impossible to put down.

First and before the final plot is consistently interesting. Here is a terrorist, here is the plan Elevator, which has clogged its victims. The plot of the movie inside a huge, high-rise buildings, with a focus on lift all stemming from he turns and effects — already intriguing wholly, but on — even more interesting, the action moved to bus passengers: they are like pawns in the game between good (K. Reeves) and evil (D. Hopper). The bus leads the inimitable, fun and not very hapless Annie (S. Bullock).

The result: the film is very dynamic, not zakormlen all kinds of special effects, acting on the appropriate level, with a couple of strong drammamine, by the way. Single chase the bus for American roads keeps in suspense, in spite of something like know with the characters (many of them)&all will be well. Much more interesting to watch how the unfortunate passengers of the bus will pass all obstacles way to their own salvation.

Good, nostalgic attitude to "Speed" is left until now, why don't say, of course, "Speed 2". When (once) I met him for the first time, noticed the first mistake was the lack of Jack (Reeves) and the presence of Annie. Why? Rough work: or so both played on, or both gone into the fly.

Those who rose the fighters of the 90s and have not seen "Speed" — heartily recommend. Although the two thousandth generation may be also be interesting: how to me-it's worth it.

Thriller — one of the most popular genres in cinema, this is because the audience in the most of the cinema for sight. But, alas, only a small representation of this genre can be attributed to decent films. As a rule, standard action to involve shootings, chases, fights, explosions. But the movie "Speed" takes its originality, the originality of the storyline. In lot this is considered a classic of the genre.

The clever terrorist is first, mine Elevator in a skyscraper, and then a bus full of people. He will explode if the speedometer drops below than 50 miles per hour (about 80 km/h). On the search for a mysterious terrorist, who already have proven the seriousness of his intentions, abandoned the elite police unit. But the time goes by, and reach the trail of the criminal just not possible. To make the terrorist enters intelligence officer Jack Traven.

This film — one continuous dynamics. Drive the ongoing for a minute. In the result, the viewer is kept in suspense from the first to the last minute of the film. And is what you need the viewer for watching an action movie.

Favorite quote:
- there something that may slow down the lift?
Yes. The basement.


Main role brilliantly played Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock. This film gave a positive push in their career, Reeves has moved on a new level, and Bullock gained fame and popularity. Them on-screen Duo to still is one of the best. I should also mention Dennis hopper, who is played a negative role.

The Oscar-winning "Speed" was filmed by people who like thrillers as true fans of the genre.

The bus, which has led her to the real glory. And since then, the speed of its career is not always below 50.

Watching her heroine, Annie, is always a feeling that you yourself, was sitting at the wheel of this car. So I would like to scream, while holding the steering wheel on "what do you mean cool?" turn; depressed to feel "delighted that still alive"; angry children who crossed the road, and to be indignant, "why are they not school?!".

Action is unique in that Annie was not just a girl protagonist, a beautiful accessory, and addition to him, like the companions of bond. A character, if not so much impact on the storyline as Jack's (Keanu's character), but its very absence would make the tape dry and standard. Have itself an unusual her answer to Jack about the relationship, beginning in extreme situations (only this phrase very upsetting at the time, watching "Speed 2").

And from those extreme situations are so breathtaking that not immediately, you can come to myself when they are completed. At what are all each friend. Just rejoice for experienced one obstacle, then the same track appears new.

Music highlights. And the drama of the cliff an unfinished highway, and the tension before the Jack jumped in the bus, trying to make it stop. By the way, don't know why the bus numbers written on the roofs, but thank all this it was seen, and clear what bus actually observe.

A shot, probably with all angles, which can only be light. And from height of bird's flight, and with "Netty" level asphalt. Had the opportunity to explore every cog of this bus, which became one of the most famous vehicles in the world of cinema. Because that bus is like in kingovskoy alive, not releasing passengers, and destroying all who doesn't play in his game.

And damage to the city caused much more than $ 3 million that had been requested by the terrorists. But it's same Los Angeles! There everything always have to be spectacular! And expensive! And all coming back, probably, in the secret hope to experience something similar and annoying tourist, from which Annie sat on another seat in the beginning of the film.
