Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Under Siege was yet another Die Hard clone – this time it’s Die Hard… On A Boat. With added Gary Busey. At the height of his success Steven Seagal made what was then his biggest film and, to be fair to him, he’s never looked leaner or more sharp. The central concept is barking mad – former & current soldiers lead a hostile take over of a military ship for some reason that mostly you don’t care about. Ultimately this is about Seagal being Seagal and beating the snot out of a LOT of bad guys. Which is something he does very well indeed. There’s nothing new here, even for 1992, but years later the film still works well and is never dull. So not groundbreaking but for sure it’s a whole lot of fun and well worth a rewatch.
Best Bit: Busey is obviously having the time of his life.
