**I liked it better when it had Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock and Dennis Hopper in it**

Needless to say SPEED (1994) was definitely an inspiration for this movie, to the point that if they'd switch things around just a little bit it could have been a sequel to it.

And even though John Cena is better than he usually is in movies, he's just no Keanu (did I say that? Oh yes I did).

And Ashley Scott is definitely no Sandra Bullock and furthermore Aidan Gillen no Dennis Hopper.

That said, it's not terrible, SPEED (1994) to me is just one of the best blockbuster action movies of the 90's so the chance that it would match up to it would really be second to none.

Anyway back to this movie, it's okay fairly mindless popcorn entertainment, Renny Harlin is good when it comes to action-sequences and yet again he delivers on those aspects.

I'm usually not bothered to much over shaky cams but this movie contains a overabundance of that and occasionally you wish they would just use steady cam but what can you do? not much.

There's really not that much more to talk about the movie, it's not a bad movie we've just seen it before.

It's the best movie I've seen with John Cena at least, there is always that.
