2 out of 5

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.

Plot Summary

Action thriller starring Steven Seagal as former Navy SEAL Casey Ryback, who takes on a vengeful weapons expert and his gang of mercenaries when they hijack a luxury train and a top-secret device.
