Flickering Myth: Speed 90s Action Feature

Flickering Myth Speed Screengrab

“The 1990s witnessed a changing of the guard when it came to action movies. Speed crashed into 1994 and went from being “that bus movie” to one of the decade’s finest straight-up action films. Alongside the gloriously OTT Con Air, the far-fetched Face/Off, and Michael Bay’s ‘masterpiece’ The Rock, a slew of Dolph Lundgren, Van Damme and Steven Segal movies were sent straight to DVD. Speed itself had no sci-fi elements, no Kung Fu kicks and not even an ounce of espionage, but it has the strongest claim as the 90’s ultimate action film.”
