Speed Kills

Speed Kills

TIME OUT SAYS

Speed kills follows the stereotypical tropes of any crime-drama about shipping black-market materials – a millionaire protagonist is living the good life, the DEA gets involved, then our main character’s career starts falling apart. There are plenty of good examples of films following the same story, but, judging by its trailer, this John Travolta movie is not one of them. An exhausted-looking Travolta plays Ben Aronoff who leads a double life as a speedboat racing champion and a mobster. It ends up landing him in trouble with the DEA and the people he works for. Think of Speed Kills as a low-budget version of the 2017 Tom Cruise film American Made, except nowhere near as good.
