Hot shot daredevil loose cannon Jack Traven (Keanu Reeves) and bomb-happy terrorist Howard Payne (Dennis Hopper) have a bit of a Batman/Joker thing going on. Payne keeps planting bombs around Los Angeles and demanding ransoms, and Traven keeps swooping in at the last minute to save the day. Bitter about his latest scheme’s failure, Payne rigs a city bus with explosives set to go off if its speed drops below 50 mph.

“I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around the city, keeping its speed over fifty, and if its speed dropped, the bus would explode! I think it was called The Bus That Couldn’t Slow Down.” – Homer J. Simpson
