Storyline

When a prestigious Senator boards a train at Union Station, he is expecting an emblematic, smooth ride. However, his trip is ferociously interrupted when a militia group hijacks the train, taking him and several other passengers as hostages and planting a nuclear bomb somewhere on board. A gallant ATF Agent who happens to be a passenger on the train is the one man who just may be capable of both freeing the hostages and defusing the bomb before time runs out.

Great action movie!
30 June 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The Last Siege is in My opinion a very good action movie with an unusual cast! Jeff Fahey, Ernie Hudson, Ernie Hudson Jr., Patrick Kilpatrick, Frank McRae, Beth Toussaint, and Brent Huff were all good in this movie. Brent Huff reminded Me a lot of Michael Wincott. Its something that Patrick Kilpatrick was in a similar movie called Under Siege 2: Dark Territory years before this was made. He even plays a similar character in this film and not to mention he is very good in the movie! I think he is an underrated actor. The music is very good in the movie, it has solid acting, action, directing, musical score, and everything else. If you liked Under Siege 2: Dark Territory and want to see another great film similar like it then The Last Siege is an awesome film to watch!
