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.

Sandra Bullock is back, alas without Keanu Reeves, in this waterborne addition to the panic button series, as dying rejected computer genius Willem Dafoe masterminds a solo takeover of a cruise liner from which he plans to remove a fortune in diamonds before blowing it up.

Unfortunately for him, not all the passengers and crew manage to abandon ship on schedule, including Sandra and her new boyfriend, a speed-happy LA cop (Jason Patric).
