Why is speed a must have for fans of Keanu Reeves and John Wick?
In addition to the action spectacle Dangerous surf * Speed was one of the greatest Hollywood films in Keanu Reeves’ early career. This is also due to the impressively simple concept:
Bomb specialist Jack (Reeves) is confronted with a blackmailer (Dennis Hopper) who has hidden a bomb in a public bus: Either you pay him the ransom or the bus explodes as soon as it drives slower than 50 kilometers an hour. Jack gets on board – and has to try to avert the disaster with passenger Annie (Sandra Bullock).
Even after almost 30 years, Speed is a fast-paced action thrill
Speed is often called “Die hard on a bus” described, which is not so absurd. After all, here, too, a hero has to deal with an overwhelming danger in a confined space. Director Jan De Bont was even responsible as a cameraman for the success of the Bruce Willis cracker.
Speed appears in a new 4K UHD edition
But Speed already shows in the title what sets it apart from many Die Hard clones. The focus is on deadly speed and this is not only suggested by the film with its elaborate stunts. That two-time Oscar-winning sound design puts ourselves on the bench next to Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock.
- Accordingly, the 4K UHD from Speed also comes with DTS 5.1 sound for the German soundtrack, so that the home cinema trembles with every sharp bend.
