Looks like this is shot with a steady cam, which would make the speed fx look much smoother. Try doing the same thing to shaky footage & it just won't look as good.

As far as technique, you're good to start with speed ramp. I've also just made cuts in the footage where I want it to go fast/slow, then use the speed tool.

Another route would be to take it into After Effects or Motion, where you have more control over the keyframes to make it smooth.

If you've got FCP7, take a look at the Timeline Keyframe editor. You can put a keyframe onto a frame then drag it forwards or backwards to a new position and FCP works out what speed it needs be, etc, and you can have mutiple keyframes in a shot so you can do speed ramps much quicker and easier than previous versions of FCP.
