Product Overview

It's not a job. It's an adventure! Steven Seagal comes aboard and comes on strong in a fireball of a movie. When the USS Missouri welcomes aboard entertainers for the battleship's last voyage, the visitors throw a party. A war party. Led by a rogue CIA operative and a turncoat officer, they're killer-elite commandos out to hijack the ship's nuclear arsenal. They overpower the crew. Except one man. "I'm just a cook," that man says. But he's a cook with a recipe for action. He's ex-Navy SEAL and decorated combat operative Casey Ryback (Seagal). All hands on deck, action fans!

Plot Summary
Summary Action hero Steven Seagal stars as former Navy SEAL Casey Ryback in this high-octane action thriller set aboard the battleship "USS Missouri." A hero with a mind of his own, Casey has been demoted to ship's cook for insubordination. But he's still got the heart of a patriot, and when William Strannix, a dangerously wacked ex-CIA operative-turned-terrorist takes over the ship, Casey hangs up his chef's hat and goes into attack mode. The stakes are high: Strannix, in an act of vengeance against the U.S. government, plans to launch the battleship's nuclear missiles at Honolulu. Casey -- assisted by a stripper who was stranded aboard the ship during an aborted farewell party -- must race against the clock to save the U.S. from an atomic nightmare.
New York Times "...Lunatic enough to keep you watching the screen....The movie alternately prompts awe and out-of-control laughter..." 10/09/1992 p.C12
USA Today "...Steven Seagal charts some bold new territory....This is the best Seagal yet..." 10/09/1992 p.8D
Entertainment Weekly "...In the brutally efficient UNDER SIEGE, Seagal, with his soft-spoken nihilist charm, attempts to move beyond limb-snapping exploitation and into epically scaled mainstream thrillers. He succeeds..." 10/23/1992 p.44
Chicago Sun-Times "...This movie does a terrific job of making every scene play like a real event on a ship at sea, and that's part of its charm..." 10/09/1992 p.41

Review There's good news and bad news about Under Siege. The good news is that it's Steven Seagal's best movie to date. The bad news is that it's still considerably below the current high level of action and excitement established by the best of the recent entries into the genre...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...Under Siege is the sort of action film that can be fun if you stumble into it without any grand expectations.

Review The star is Steven Seagal, who has cut off his pony tail to play a former Navy hero serving out his last tour as a cook. The reasons for that assignment are complicated (he got in trouble, but the skipper is his friend) but Seagal makes a convincing cook; he can hit a target with a carving knife at 20 paces, and he even looks like he's put on a few pounds on the job, sipping the boulibaisse...The plot of the movie is, of course, absurd, involving a half-explained scheme to steal the ship's nuclear warheads, offload them to a stolen North Korean submarine, and sell them in the Middle East. Never mind. The details of the cat-and-mouse chase around the ship are exciting and well-directed.
