Movies; Speed (1994)

This movie starts with a clever bomber (played by Dennis Hopper) being stopped from getting 3.5 million dollars ransom for trapping 13 people in an express elevator. Two cops (Jeff Bridges and Keanu Reeves) manage to save all of the hostages, leaving the bomber very angry. He plants a bomb on a bus, set to blow up if the speed drops below 50, and after the driver is injured, one of the passengers (Sandra Bullock) has to take over driving.

Full of showy stunts, this film spawned a sequel.
