Under Siege 暴走潛龍 (1992) – USA
Reviewed by: Andrew Chan
Director: Andrew Davis
Writer: J.F. Lawton
Stars: Steven Seagal, Gary Busey, Tommy Lee Jones
Steven Seagal made a lot of bad and repetitive movies, but this Die Hard on a boat hero against all odds is one of his better affair. Tommy Lee Jones does extremely well as the lead villain where he is both playful and menacing. Seagal is not much of an actor and this film shows how stoic he is when he is not delivering the guns and brace. Good news is that this film is largely fresh and suitably entertaining. It is a joy to see Seagal being proclaim an expert in everything and playing James Bond style on a boat. It is hard to please everyone and Seagal managed to launch a highly series two film series. A third is coming in the coming years, let’s hope it’s more of the same.
I rate it 3 out of 5.
