50. Speed 2 : Cruise Control (1991)

Roger's Rating :

Should be :

The director of Speed, who was really a cinematographer, decided to try his hand at writing and this was the result. Needless to say, it was his first and last screen writing credit.
I like Sandra Bullock and Willem Dafoe, but you can't just throw them on a boat with a horrible plot and hope things work out. In this movie instead of hijacking a bus the bad guy has hijacked a cruise ship. The passengers on the boat weren't the only one trapped; for 121 minutes we were trapped in this disaster too.
Roger was in a good mood when he saw this movie. He said in his review : "Movies like this embrace goofiness with an almost sensual pleasure. And so, on a warm summer evening, do I." Is it possible that Roger fell asleep during this movie?
Roger gave it 3 stars but others didn't like it as much. It has a 3.4 rating on IMDB and a 2% (that's right - 2%) rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Out of the 50 reviews on RT there was only one that was positive - Roger's.

Actually, there were only two positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, the other one came from Gene Siskel, Roger Ebert's co-host at the time.
