Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Speed 2: Cruise Control from 1997.  Surely it has to be an improvement from Dracula 3000, right?  Right!?

Can one character from the original carry the sequel?  Can they get away with using the same joke at the start and end of the movie?  Can a cruise liner be considered a speedy vehicle?  Why is an entire town apparently built over the water?  Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at
