    As far as Keanu Reeves goes, both The Matrix and John Wick are better action movies than Speed.

    The idea that Speed is a better action movie than T2, is at best, deluded.

    And those that carry us forward, are dreams.” – H.G. Wells

    It's just an opinion, feel free to disagree. I personally think that the non-stop action in Speed is a lot more exciting than the sporadic sequences in T2. Speed is essentially nothing but action, there are very few pauses or quiet moments. We are almost never not on the bus and the bus is almost never not in motion. That kind of action is not what T2 has, which is also great but in a different way. For pure action I just like Speed more.

    I'm not allowed to like Speed? Is that a written or unwritten rule somewhere?

    I guess we should go and edit Wikipedia quickly before someone finds out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_...tical_response

    The abyss part of The Abyss is amazing, one of my favorite scenes or sequences of all time.

    You know, obviously I like all the big set pieces and explosions and action and stuff, but what I also admire about T2 is that it's all enhanced by amazing sound design. The T-1000 slowly cracking to bits, the metallic shells of the grenades clanging on the floor, the -blob!- sound when T1K removes the spear from his abdomen. James Cameron is a genius.

    Honestly, I think Pulp Fiction has had a larger cultural impact on the 1990s (and beyond) than T2 ever did.
    Yes, tons of filmmakers tried to mimic what Tarantino did in Pulp Fiction. What I mean is the larger than life action hero in the big budget popcorn flick. When I think of the 90's, that's what I think about.
