18 Amazing Behind the Scenes Photographs From the Making of ‘Speed’ (1994)

Jan de Bont’s Speed came out in 1994 and immediately established Keanu Reeves as one of the biggest action stars of the 1990s. While it wasn’t his first action flick (that honor went to the excellent Point Break in 1991), it was his first absolute megahit, grossing $350 Million on a $30 million budget. It was a total smash, and folks went crazy for it. In addition to launching Reeves into superstardom, it also made his co-star, Sandra Bullock, America’s Sweetheart. Dennis Hopper became everyone’s favorite big-screen bad guy for a couple of years, while de Bont became a premiere action director.

Taut and suspenseful, with excellent effects and gripping suspense that keeps you riveted. Some of the stunts seem too incredible to be believable but in a film of this kind you have to go with the flow. The stunt work itself is breathtaking and makes it easy to see why the film is one of the most highly rated action films of the 1990s. Here, some amazing behind the scenes photographs from the making of Speed:
