Under the direction of Dutch filmmaker Jan de Bont, Speed depicted the high-stakes scenario of a bus wired to detonate if its speed fell below 50 miles per hour. Reeves starred as an LAPD officer aboard the bus, with Bullock in the role of the driver. The film proved to be a blockbuster hit, raking in over $350 million.

Despite Bullock and De Bont reuniting for the sequel Speed 2: Cruise Control in 1997, Reeves chose not to return due to script concerns. The movie performed poorly at the box office and is often cited as one of the worst sequels ever made.
