Pretty Good
18 November 2018 | by bernardoarquivoSee all my reviews

Yes, the direction is lousy, screenplay is shallow and it does look like a B movie, at times. Pretty much the same feeling I had when I watched Travolta's "Gotti". "Speed Kills" is like Lifetime's movie of the week.

The difference is that Travolta is Travolta. He's good, he's funny and he always delivers. Moreover, it's a true story, it's very interesting and it is a treat to see Travolta and Tom Sizemore together.

Not a masterpiece, but overall, pretty decent entertainment.
