Under Siege (1992)
Tommy Lee Jones
A former S.E.A.L., now cook, is the only person who can stop a gang of terrorists when they seize control of a U.S. Navy battleship.
I am not a Steven Seagal fan, but my husband likes some of his movies, so I end up watching them as well.
As far as action movies go this one wasn’t bad. I thought the knife fight looked like a slap fight, but I’ve been informed that’s how it’s supposed to look. Also, I’m very greatful that when Seagal was doing his “kung fu” the camera was focused so close you didn’t see much.
Tommy Lee Jones was fun to see as such a crazy bad guy.
I feel incredibly sorry for Erika Eleniak and I hope that she got a better boob job later in life. Seriously, it was like looking at a plastic Barbie doll. It was sad. Plus her whole character was just a trophy for Seagal to kiss at the end.
The movie was Die Hard on a boat, only not really. Seagal was a SEAL that got demoted for punching some dude. The big guys sending help weren’t idiots and were actually competent, except the CIA. The bad guys were after money though.
This movie did not really paint the Navy in a good light since just a handful of terrorists took down an entire battleship. Overall, though, the movie was alright.
