Jason Patric replaces Keanu Reeves as the action man opposite Sandra Bullock in this sea-borne sequel to Speed. Willem Dafoe - always good value as a villain - plays a dying computer geek who masterminds the takeover of a cruise liner. However, he doesn't reckon on Bullock and her cop boyfriend (Patric) failing to jump ship. Impressive setpieces keep everyone's head above the water.
