Keanu Reeves endures as one of the best action heroes of all time in cinema for a simple reason; because he has starred in several of the best action movies of all time. Breaking point, MatrixY john wick have cemented the beloved star’s reputation as one of the true titans of the genre, but it’s Speed that’s been going full throttle on the transmission this week.

According to FlixPatrol, the undisputed classic has been trying to avoid breaking 50 miles per hour on the iTunes world rankings, but it’s still been enough to secure a spot as one of the most popular titles on the platform.

It is surprising that Jan de Bont’s relentlessly exciting career is approaching its 30th anniversary, because Speed it holds up as well now as it did in the summer of 1994 when it captured the imagination of audiences everywhere to gross $350 million at the box office on a budget of around $30 million.

Extremely simple in its premise and execution, Dennis Hopper’s scenario-eating big bad threatens to blow up a bus if it falls below a certain rate, with Reeves’ Jack Traven doing everything in his power to avert catastrophe. The practical sets, incredible stunt work, pyrotechnic mayhem, memorable supporting cast, and simmering chemistry between the lead and Sandra Bullock all work in perfect harmony to easily elevate Speed to the pantheon of greatness.

Let’s not talk about the sequel though, because I didn’t sign on for Cruise control it was definitely one of the smartest career decisions Reeves has ever made.
