1990s action thriller starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock. Jack Traven (Reeves), an LAPD cop on SWAT detail, has a fearless nature and a keen understanding of the criminal mind, but he is also rather reckless. Together with partner Harry (Jeff Daniels), they rescue a dozen hostages from an elevator rigged by psychotic ex-cop Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper). With his plans foiled by Jack, Payne makes alternative arrangements - rigging a city bus to explode if the speedometer drops below 50 mph. It's then up to Jack to save the passengers, including feisty Annie (Bullock), who is forced to take the wheel after the driver is shot.
