This movie was what Speed could have been. They had almost the exact same mad bomber plot, and it was very evident that much more time and planning had gone into Blown Away. The acting, special effects, and direction was all higher calibre. My guess is that producers heard about the Blown Away story and decided to quickly market a movie to make money on the plot before Blown Away was released, resulting in Speed. The baseball clips and U2 music were great.
