Under-Believable

Stupid albeit entertaining military film about a collection of traitors whom attempt to procure an American naval vessel.

Steve Seagal is not too bad as an ex-navy Seal who now holds the position of a cook on board the ship in question. When the gun-play erupts, not one of the many bad guys swarming around the deck and innards of the ship walks through the door at the right time to shoot Seagal in the back -- they only appear after Seagal has wasted somebody uninterrupted so he can turn around just in time for the next pigeon to enter the room and blow him away as well (just like Rambo and all those other cardboard action movie characters).

For all its ineptitude, this movie remains a solid action flick. Actually, one of Seagal's best films (my personal favorite Seagal film, for what that's worth.... I'm not a die-hard Seagal fan).

Don't forget to see Steve in 'On Deadly Ground' where he plays a peaceful ecology activist who has the audacity (and hypocrisy) to punch the crap out of a guy in a bar to the point where the guy is ready to drop dead, as well as Seagal, 'our hero', wearing animal skins and littering the Alaskan tundra with his cigarette butts.

i'm just a cook, not much of an actor, just a cook : somehow it works!

This is from the genre 'all action nonsense'.

I do enjoy the genre as long as it's not too stupid.

Under Siege does actually work, even though Seagal has limited acting abilities. Tommy Lee Jones brings oodles of charisma to the screen as the baddie, ably assisted by the treachous naval officer, Busey. Seagals only real contribution is to say, quite well, "i'm just a cook'.

A disgruntled CIA operative (jones) who specialises in taking over ships/subs, decides to take over the last U.S. battle ship, why ? to sell the tomahawk missiles of course, presumably at the nearest boot fair.

Conveniently Busey (as first officer) is able to assist in taking over the ship. Their evil plan is to load a helicopter full of baddies pretending to be caterers, arriving on the Missouri for the captains 'surprise' party.

They take over the ship and seagal, assisted by a lady with remarkably fine personalities, has to prevent them succeeding in their evil plan.

Seagal is so wooden he could be made of oak, fortunately good actors do add life to the story.

It's a good action romp, obviously not to be taken tooooooo seriously, but it's fun.

Nice Sunday matinée with a few beers.

Gets better with age!

Gets better with age! When I first saw Under Siege I thought cheesy, and far fetched! Well disgruntled professionals, crazy plans, and unbalance dialog is believe. Not in 92 but believable for 2017. Bussey is great as an angry Navel officer. Jones is great as an angry/crazy, but brilliant/mad disgruntled ex C I A employee. The taking of the ship with real time martial arts is exciting. There is a evil plan and knife fight at the end. From a ugh movie to one I like to watch! Under Siege is repeated on cable t v over and over again. I can watch part one over and over too. Under Siege two is even better. 7 out of 10.
