(jp) wrote: Although the story is simple but every single shot in this movie is a lesson of how symmetrical and contrastfull a shot could be . Ceylon's shoots are balanced like mathematical equations,a geometrical harmony between static and dynamic elements , the depth and the foreground,and their parallel unusual audio tape which was mostly recording what we might call " silence moments " a powerful prevailing silence that forces its encounters to stay speechless !i really loved it !

(fr) wrote: A rare Steven Seagal success story, "Under Siege" is quite openly a product of its time, but still a pretty fun mindless action film.The film, directed by Andrew Davis (Above the Law, The Fugitive), tells the story of a cook/former SEAL, who must overcome a team of terrorists who have taken control of a Navy battleship.While Seagal pulls out his martial arts moves a few times, most of the fun comes from the insanity ridden performances as the terrorist ringleaders by Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey. Jones in particular is so memorable that he raises this film from a middling so-so action film into a memorable flick that you could potentially rewatch.A fun action romp.
