Number of Times Seen – Twice (30 Jul 2001 and 20 Dec 2020)
Brief Synopsis – Annie and her boyfriend who also happens to be a SWAT officer go on vacation on a Cruise ship that is taken over by a disgruntled computer expert.
Bottom Line – Pretty silly sequel that tries too hard to bank on the success of the original film. Unfortunately, there is very few connections between the two films besides a few recurring characters. Sandra Bullock is fine here, but her character is less essential to the plot than she was in the original which basically wastes her talent. Jason Patric plays the action lead and fails to be as suave or enjoyable to watch than Keanu Reeves was. The plot is far too predictable and Willem DaFoe plays the villain in too much of a psychotic role. See the original and skip this one.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Although the movie was close to being universally panned by film critics, Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel were among the very few critics to give the movie a positive review. Before his death, Ebert stated that this was the review he had to defend more than any other he had written, and that it was the one most often cited as an example of him being a poor film critic.

Rating – Razzie Worthy (4/10)
