Speed ★★★★

While director Jan de Bont's "Die Hard on a bus" doesn't reinvent the wheel, nor try to; what it lacks in originality, it makes up for in execution, with a simple, elegant revenge plot supported with excellent set-up and pay-off scenarios as the vehicle of choice hurtles around LA. Keanu Reeves, backed up by a menacing-as-always Dennis Hopper, Jeff Daniels, and a strong supporting cast, makes this simple concept better than it should be. As far as 90s Hollywood action films go; it doesn't get better than this.
