When Steve Mitchell is clandestinely sent to the US embassy in Bucharest, Romania to disarm a nuclear bomb that has secretly remained in the building since the end of the Cold War, little does he know that other problems will soon erupt. He must join Erica Long, a diplomatic attaché who is not all that she appears, to work together on setting the correct computer code that will disable the weapon and accomplish the mission. But while watching video monitors from inside a long-forgotten surveillance room, Steve witnesses a surprising deadly takeover of the building by the Serbian Liberation Front. With thirty-seven people taken hostage, including Steve's stepson, they demand the immediate release of their imprisoned leader who is being held for war crimes against humanity. If not, they will kill one hostage every hour. With time of the essence, the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon in Washington, DC send General Swain to try to end the lethal assault and the possibility of a ... Written by
And you are?
Diplomatic attaché Erica Long.
Your name must have more to do with your legs, Miss Long, than your lifespan.
At least I still have lifespan!

Nothing kills a good action movie like bombs that look like firecrackers. And in "Diplomatic Siege," all the bombs are firecrackers. Some dude shoots a bazooka poof, it's a firecracker. Another dude throws a grenade poof, another firecracker.
And they're not even good firecrackers. They're like those ones that have a great name on the wrapper, like "Hiroshima Deluxe," but just make a flash and a big puff of smoke and you're all, "Man, I spent $16.99 for that?"
Daryl Hannah is in this. She's somewhere between "Roxanne" hot and "Kill Bill" used up and poisoned by cigs. In this movie, she plays the role of "Daryl Hannah Playing the Role of Somebody Who Isn't Daryl Hannah." She fails.
Peter Weller is in this, looking and acting exactly the same as he has in every movie he's ever made, from "Buckaroo Banzai" to "Robocop" to has he done anything else?
"The secret to good acting is to purse your lips all the time and act like you don't care," is something Peter Weller never said, but probably thinks all the time.
Tom Berenger is apparently in this, but I lost patience before he showed up. Doesn't matter. If he didn't show up as the guy from "Sniper," it wouldn't be worth the wait anyway.
Brion James plays some kind of general or colonel or something, but who cares, because he plays it like a Replicant. I suspect he always was one anyway. Rest his soul. I always felt bad he died after making two decent movies and 100 that weren't any damn good.
Aaaaaanyway, I don't know what this movie is about. A group of bad guys takes over an embassy. Or something.
You know what? Just skip it and read a book.
