Under Siege Reviews

    Its so corny and unbelievable that i find myself not taking it too seriously and just enjoying the action cliches of the early 90's. It does suffer from the same problem as other Steven Seagal movies, it lacks tension because Seagals character never gets hurt. You never feel like he's in actual danger.

    It's a decent action flick. Steven Seagal still cannot act for the life of him but Tommy Lee Jones's crazy guy act reels the audience in

    By today's standard, not a great film, but at the time of it's release awesome. Watched it many times.

    I Love Under Siege Because it had so many fight scenes, explosions and so much more

    Steven Siegal is an acquired taste. His Under Siege is, by extension just that- an exercise in action movie but nowhere as good as mainstream Hollywood's best work. Under Siege is occasionally fun to watch for those who like to see the good guys win, but amidst all the gunfights and explosions, there aren't many thrills. There's never a moment when you think Seagal's life might be in danger, and precious few occasions when you wonder how he's going to get out of a tight situation. Seagal sleepwalks through the role, displaying absolutely no versatility or emotion. He has all the screen presence of a zombie, and one wonders how this man got to be so popular so fast. His co-stars, Gary Busy and Tommy Lee Jones, are far more entertaining. Jones delights by running around chewing up the scenery in a wildly campy performance.

    The fun kind of dumb, Under Siege is probably Segal's best work, and in my opinion the only reason people ever mention him in the same breath as the likes of Stallone, Schwarzenegger or Willis.

    Great cast of "characters", entertaining if not ridiculous
