Alex tries to stop him.Written by
Bow thrusters are primarily used to maneuver a ship away from a dock. Run for several minutes, they could typically rotate a ship by a few degrees. There is no way they could perform the violent turn to avoid the supertanker in the film. Also, bow thruster tubes normally have operable doors on either side to cover the propellers while the ship is moving. This protects the bow thrusters which can be broken if exposed while the ship is traveling at high speed. See more »
We gotta spend some time together. We'll get to know each other. Let's go away together.
Annie Porter, Alex Shaw:
Oh, the Caribbean, do you have a concussion? We work 6 days a week, Alex. We've never even been away for a weekend.
[Alex takes a plastic blue envelope out of his pocket and shows it to Annie]
I was gonna surprise you tonight, but uh...
[Annie opens the envelope, revealing tickets]
[looking at the tickets]
It's a cruise.
This is so ...

You'll know why Keanu turned down this crummy sequel when you see it
I was so curious as to what they would do in the sequel of Speed, I just watched Speed today and absolutely loved it! So, I can understand why Keanu turned down the movie, first off not only the script was bad, but the coincidences were beyond ridiculous of Sandra Bullock being in the same position twice and Jason Patrick?! He was so scared of doing a great movie like The Lost Boys, but yet he couldn't hesitate to do this movie? The movie just lost it's course and didn't work on any level, if it had different characters, maybe, but these great actors should know better and check twice before signing onto these sequels.
Annie is with this new policeman, Alex, and he surprises her with cruise tickets. He is planning on asking her to marry him, but that is shortly interrupted when Willaim Defoe is now the super duper bad guy. He is upset that he designed the ships computer system but gets no credit, so guess what? He decides the best way to avenge this is to blow it up! But with Alex on board... yup... you guessed it, he's gonna stop William and save the day! Good for him!
Speed 2: Cruise Control was just a money maker that is truly a fake movie that was really sad. The acting was really bad and Sandra's character went from admirable to just plain annoying. Alex had no character or any sympathy. The explosions were lame and the plot was just beyond unbelievable, poor William, he was probably on medication when he said yes to making this movie. Well, just please stay away from this movie, it'll be a waste of your time.
