The subway train that comes crashing up onto Hollywood Blvd at the ending was actually a bus, decked out to look like a subway train. See more »
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.

"Speed" was a runaway success in 1994. It was a block-buster in every sense of the word and critically speaking, it is an excellent motion picture. The film deals with an LAPD swat officer (Keanu Reeves) who is playing a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with crazed ex-cop Dennis Hopper. After Reeves stops Hopper from blowing up a high-rise building, the next obstacle is a city bus. Hopper has rigged the bus to explode if the "speed" ever drops below 50 miles per hour. Sandra Bullock, in her star-making role, plays an unlucky passenger who becomes the center of attention when she is forced to be the driver when the original navigator is accidently shot. The great thing about "Speed" is the fact that it never tries to be more than it is. It goes for non-stop action, thrills, chills, and spills. However, Dennis Hopper's character is somewhat complex and his performance probably should have garnered him an Oscar nomination. A great film in spite of the fact it is from the action genre. 5 stars out of 5.
