In order to foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a face-transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a ruthless terrorist, but the plan turns from bad to worse when the same criminal impersonates the cop.
Bomber terrorist's elevator plan backfires, so he rigs a bomb to a LA city bus. The stipulation is: once armed, the bus must stay above 50 mph to keep from exploding. Also if LAPD Officer tries to unload any passengers off, Payne will detonate it. Joe Morton co-stars as Jack's superior, and Jeff Daniels supports Jack helping him try to defuse the bomb. Written by

While the news crew is preparing the tape to distract Payne and rescue the passengers, Jack and Annie check the fuel gage and it clearly reads empty. There is no way that a vehicle without gas can still be running. The bus would stop almost instantly and blow up. But, when Jack and Annie are rigging the bus to drive by itself, you can see the fuel gage and it clearly reads full. Where did the fuel come from as the passengers are being transferred to the rescue bus?
Possible explanation: The bus might be fairly fuel-efficient, so if there was enough gas in the fuel lines and other fuel system components, it could allow the bus to remain running for a good while even after the tank was empty. Also, if the punctured hole wasn't at the very bottom (lowest point) of the tank (the sending unit might be in a fairly deep "well" at the very bottom of the tank to allow every bit of gas in the tank to be pumped out), then a little gas could still be left even after the gas above the hole had all leaked out.

Hey, this area's restricted.
Oh, hi. Yeah, I know. They called me down here. Some of this wiring got screwed up.
Nobody called it down to me. I'm going to have to see a work order.
Yeah, just a second. There you are.

One of the most explosive and epic action films is Speed! It stars Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper, Sandra Bullock, Joe Morton,Jeff Daniels, and Glenn Plummer! Reeves is really good. I like how his character is. Dennis Hopper is excellent! He's funny, he's mean, and he means business! Hopper was perfect in My opinion! Bullock was also very good. Plummer was also is funny and Morton and Daniels also perform good. The action is really great and you never know what to expect. The music by Mark Mancina is good and the direction by Jan de Bont is very good. I think that Speed is an excellent film which is always exciting! If you like the cast mentioned above and want to see Dennis Hopper in a great performance then I strongly recommend that you watch or even buy Speed today!
