    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    This may be hard to believe, but there's not a single moment of drama or tension in any of the action sequences. And the film is made up almost entirely of action. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    The filmmakers, who include the hitherto ace action director Jan De Bont ("Speed", "Twister"), have neither hearts nor minds in gear. [13Jun1997 Pg.04.D] show more

    Movies like this embrace goofiness with an almost sensual pleasure. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Nathanson's script has a disheartening let's get on with it air, and the film feels like marathon training... show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    And De Bont's effects are wildly over the top, devoid of the stylish cuts and intriguing angles that enriched the original. In fact, there's so little panache in his destructive action that it begins to seem like a weird act of self-destruction. show more

    Speed 2 is a well-above-average armrest-gripper with little in it to upset the children excepting, perhaps, Dafoe's lengthy white teeth, and the fact that UB40 provide onboard cabaret. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    Not nearly as clever at taxing the audience's knuckles as its forerunner, Speed 2 still manages to stay above board long enough to merit a look-see, if only to relish the once-in-a-lifetime pleasure of Mr. Dafoe and his pet leeches. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    It's all idiotic but energetic, directed by Jan De Bont in his usual techno-action style. show more
