Review

Our Score
The original Under Siege was a hugely entertaining affair, thanks mainly to the sheer scale of the destruction and its top-drawer cast of cartoon villains. This sequel sadly falls down in both departments. Basically, it's the same story but this time set on a train. Steven Seagal plays the former Navy SEAL-turned-chef who finds himself up against another gang of international terrorists, led by the faintly ludicrous mad professor Eric Bogosian. New Zealand director Geoff Murphy gives it his all, but there is a second-hand feel to the increasingly outlandish action stunts.

Summary

A retired Navy veteran travelling by train is forced to leap into action when he realises terrorist hijackers are on board. Their leader, a vengeful former government operative with access to a powerful orbital weapon, is threatening to set off a chain of earthquakes if his demand for $1billion is not met. Action adventure sequel, with Steven Seagal, Eric Bogosian, Morris Chestnut, Brenda Bakke and Katherine Heigl.
