True Keanu Reeves fans don't even acknowledge the existence of Speed 2: Cruise Control, the annoyingly boat-themed attempt at a so-called sequel to the 1994 Oscar-winning (true!) ultraclassic Speed.

Another reason people pretend this movie doesn't exist is, well, boat nonsense like this:
Thankfully, Keanu dropped by Jimmy Kimmel's performance art extravaganza Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday to deliver the first look at the totally real and definitely not a joke A Reasonable Speed.

Dubbed "the first movie ever produced by the California Highway Patrol," A Reasonable Speed is the wildly pleasant action movie Earth never knew it
