Annie (Sandra Bullock) and her policeman boyfriend Alex (Jason Patrick) decide to take a romantic ocean cruise together. Once at sea, however, a disgruntled passenger has other plans. John Geiger (Willem Dafoe), the designer of the ship's computer system was fired and cast aside by the computer company he worked for, and now he wants revenge. He’s set the ship on a collision course with an oil tanker anchored at the island of St. Martin, and now it's up to Alex to stop him. But can he outwit a man who can control the entire ship from his keyboard?

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Speed 2 falls far short of its predecessor, thanks to laughable dialogue, thin characterization, unsurprisingly familiar plot devices, and action sequences that fail to generate any excitement.

Common Sense Says
Action-packed sequel has lots of non-graphic violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Speed 2: Cruise Control is an action-adventure sequel with non-stop violence, though it refrains from becoming too graphic. Sandra Bullock reprises her role as Annie Porter -- though there's no Keanu Reeves this time -- with the action taking place on a cruise liner rather than a bus. Willem Dafoe plays John Geiger, a computer hacker who sets the boat on course to hit an oil tanker. The film is unrelenting in its commitment to high-speed action. There are countless explosions and untold destruction, no doubt with several injuries to the public, though the film doesn't linger on any potential casualties. Annie is a strong-female lead, and displays great courage and pragmatism. She also helps bring together other characters who display teamwork and unity, in trying to overcome Geiger. The language is generally mild with the occasional use of words such as "s--t" and "ass." Before everything descends into disaster, characters are seen drinking alcohol on the cruise, in moderation.
