One of Segal's last stand out films
17 April 2002 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

Basically Under Siege is Die Hard on a boat. But the direction by Andrew Davis and the martial arts of Segal make this one stand out. Tommy Lee Jones makes a good villain as always. And extra points for Erika for getting naked.
