Behind the Scenes of Speed (1994)

Speed remains one of the all time great action movies and is probably in my top ten favourite movies. Period.

The music score by Mark Mancina is fantastic, Dennis Hopper hams it up as a classic villain and Keanu Reeves is perfectly cast as the square-jawed action hero.

It’s also movie of his, yes even moreso than The Matrix. While scouring the web I found these two video showing a behind the scenes on the making of the film. The first video is only just over a minute long and the second video is over 20 minutes. They provide an insight into the classic bus jump scene and more.

The quality of the second video is pretty poor but you get the idea. Anyway, enjoy!
