I was aware of Keanu Reeves when Speed roared into theaters in the Summer of 1994. He had been in Point Break and other projects, so his face was not new. But Sandra Bullock would kick off a great career with her role as the Arizona Wildcat roped into the revenge plot of a disgruntled police retiree determined to get his due through terrorism.
When the movie begins Reeves and Bullock are strangers and over the course of the movie as their lives are threatened again and again they develop a bond. The scene I favor is one where they have just escaped the explosive rigged bus by way of a wheeled cart and finally feel they might just survive the ordeal.
Annie (Bullock) tells Jack (Reeves) “I have heard that relationships built on intense events never last. This scene is only a prelude to more action as the villain, Dennis Hopper goes after Annie to try to get his money. Only after Jack finally dispatches him and saves himself and Annie from death does he get the chance to deliver this line to her at the end of the movie. I though I would be able to find a YouTube clip of this, but alas I could not.
