Allison, the unfaithful wife of a famous mentalist with a heart problem, together with her lover tries to kill him by scaring him to death, but the whole thing goes downhill when it turns out that he knew about it all along.
Terrorists launch an attack against the USA. Their first strike is by a suicide squad that detonates a truckload of explosives at an army base in Washington DC. FBI probes indicate that the attack is by Arab terrorists led by Iranians. Subsequent attacks are via airplanes exploded in mid-air, crowded restaurants, and an attack on a mall. Administration cabinet heads push the President (Hal Holbrook) to retaliate. The director of the FBI (Peter Strauss) believes that there may be more to the story than the investigation has revealed and the Secretary of Defense (Paul Winfield) is the only other person urging caution.

The best movie I have ever seen - where is it now?
One of the best movies I have ever seen! A great plot and fabulous acting. After 911, I tried for years to find a copy of it, but it seemed to vanish off the face of the earth. It seemed a very unusual coincidence that another movie of the same name (a very poor replacement starring Steven Seagal) came out to replace the missing movie, in case others tried to locate it. The only actor's name I could remember was Hal Holbrook (the president), and I looked up his profile on the internet. It listed all the movies he's ever acted in, but it didn't show "Under Siege". It was then that I became convinced it had been ordered pulled from the market by the U.S. government (probably CIA) because it was so realistic, and so clearly showed just how vulnerable the country is to terrorist attack. I'm sure it was seen as a blueprint for potential terrorists. I would place bets that Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaida have seen the movie prior to 911.
