The venerable U.S.S. Missouri battleship is going to be decommissioned and the crew decides to go out with a bang by celebrating the captain's birthday. During the festivities a band of terrorists takes over the ship for its nuclear arsenal. What they didn't count on was the ship's cook, a former Navy SEAL who isn't about to let them go without a fight. -- Chris Kavan

Well blow me down. A decent film starring Steven Seagal. True, it has little to do with him and it's a transparent rip off of Die Hard, but it's an exciting action film with a quality supporting cast, especially the psychotic double act of Busey and Jones. Good fun, but it'd be better if that meat-head would get over himself and realise that making yourself invincible does NOT make for good drama...

This movie sucks. But I'll give it a 2 because I saw the cake scene with Erika Eleniak when I was about 13 and that was awesome!!!!!

Basically a low-rent Die Hard. It's an average action picture that has some camp entertainment partially due to the over-the-top villains played by Jones and Busey. I enjoy it for what it is, but don't hold it in any high regard.

Just the thought of having an ex Navy SEAL for a cook is ludicrous. Tommy Lee Jones always brings in his sensational acting prowess on display. Then Baywatch bombshell Erika Eleniak also stars, unfortunately you don't hear or see anything interesting after this. Under Siege doesn't completely drown, it had its moments. Again, if only Seagal's acting were improved, he was like the Keanu of his generation.

Under Siege (1992)

'Die Hard on a boat'

Steven Seagal is Casey Ryback, an ex-navy seal turned cook on a battle ship. When terrorists sneak aboard the ship during the captain's birthday party and take it over, only Ryback avoids capture. Led by the traitorous first officer (Gary Busey) and a rogue CIA operative (Tommy Lee Jones), the terrorist try to steal the ships nuclear arsenal. But Ryback strikes back using awesome martial arts skills and firing of humorous one-liners. Seagal. He NEVER breaks a sweat, and comes out of the ordeal practically unscathed. Having said that, Under Siege is still a good time waster! Excellent action with great bad guys, and let's not forget to mention that the former Baywatch babe's popping out of a birthday cake. If you're a Steven Seagal fan you'll love it.
