What was the movie about?
I’m still ashamed that I was there
By ‘slow boat’ he meant that the film was very boring. This film was the sequel to ‘Speed’ (1994), starring Keanu Reeves. For the second part, the director changed her leading role, but kept Bullock in her role as ‘Annie Porter’.
‘Speed 2’ (in Latin America it was called ‘Maximum speed 2’), over 125 minutes, shows the journey and adventures of ‘Annie Porter’ and her boyfriend ‘Alex Sahw’ -actor Jason Patric’s role- to prevent a hijacked ship from crashing into an oil tanker. In the end, she reaches an island.
“That’s one I wish I hadn’t done and it wasn’t seen by the fans that I know of. Except you,” he told the journalist interviewing her.
He was absolutely right. As reported by the media ‘Variety’, the action tape failed at the box office because it only managed to raise 164 million dollars, an amount that covered the 160 million dollars that were invested in making it. She did not meet audience goals.
“(The plot) was very calm. Like, almost, five people. He (journalist) and the other four children, 12 years old, watched as the slow boat headed towards the small island,” he joked.
I really wanted to work with Sandra Bullock
