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...

'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.
