Movie Info

In the original box-office smash Under Siege, action hero Steven Seagal played Casey Ryback, a U.S. Navy SEAL who saved the world from nuclear destruction by outsmarting and killing off terrorists who had commandeered a submarine. In this sequel, Seagal's Ryback character does the same sort of thing aboard a train. Ryback now has retired from the Navy and is taking his niece Sarah (Katherine Heigl) on a vacation.

A well-paced, dumb, fun movie.

A forgettable sequel to Seagal's best movie.

This was just pathetic.

Formula Seagal, no surprises

October 19, 2004
Kansas City Kansan

Good set-up, well-shot, but Seagal never allows any villain to be much of a challenge for his character, which saps the tension.

Pardon me while I yawn.

Fun typical Seagal

September 26, 2003

Crappy follow-up to a mediocre but enjoyable action film.

March 18, 2003

Run-of-the-mill Seagal. Could be better, could be worse.

December 24, 2002
Arizona Daily Star

An imbecilic and unnecessary restaging of the original, this time onboard a train.

Even Erika Eleniak could have headlined a better sequel

Audience Reviews for Under Siege 2: Dark Territory

Sequel to Under Siege with Steven Seagal reprising his role as Casey Ryback moves the plot from a battleship to a train. With this second feature in the franchise, director Geoff Murphy wastes no time to jump right into the action. This film is pretty good for a Seagal vehicle and it should definitely appeal to action buffs. Like the first film, the strength of the film lies in a great villain. Acted by Eric Bogosian who plays a computer genius that highjack's a train and seeks to use a weapon's satellite for his own sinister means. His on-screen presence is wonderful and he provides Seagal with a great challenge in terms of a foe. If you're looking for a fun popcorn flick, then this is a must see film to watch. I enjoyed the sheer mindless fun of it all, and though not perfect, Under Siege 2 should appeal to fans of the first. There's nothing original here, but this is entertainment and it most definitely will thrill and suffice your action needs. While the first had Playboy Playmate Erika Elreniak as Seagal's sidekick, this one strips away the pitiful eye candy, and adds a bit more seriousness to the film's plot despite at times being a bit tongue in cheek. This is one of those rare sequels that is just as good as the original, and I find this one to be a bit underrated and it overcomes it flaws by being a fun, thrilling ride. This film isn't as bad as what everyone says, so if you're in the mood for mindless popcorn action, give this one a shot. At times cheesy, but with added menace, this is a very good sequel to the original Under Siege.

A weak excuse for a sequel, on from Seagal's best, but we can forget this movie, can't we?

Geoff Murphy's directing credits may not look all that impressive, but Under Siege 2: Dark Territory is a pretty good action thriller.This movie does serve as a sequel to Under Siege, but the story stands alone and this makes this picture completely watchable without having seen the first.A bunch of terrorists want money, so they hijack a train and setup some fancy equipment to cause mass destruction around the globe. Luckily, Casey F****** Ryback is here to save the day.Most of this 90+ minute film takes place on a train and it does serve as a nice setting for a hostage rescue situation. The action is a plenty and this is all that is expected with the usual shootings, beatings, explosions, and a decent knife fight near the end.Steven Seagal is Steven Seagal. Katherine Heigl is beautiful. Morris Chestnut is partially entertaining and partially annoying. As for the villains, they are the stars of the show. Eric Bogosian is a delight to watch as the clever Travis Dane and Everett McGill makes a good foe for Steven Seagal.There is nothing out of the ordinary with Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, but it is an entertaining film for those that want to see Seagal whooping some butt. "Chance favors the prepared mind."
