Mel Harris is the only saving aspect to this "thing"
If you're a Daniel Baldwin or a "Baldwin brothers" fan, *maybe* you'll go la dee da over this thing they called a movie.
The only person in "A Family Under Siege" aka "Dynamite" worth their pay is Mel Harris. The movie is among the worst I've ever seen. Mel Harris has kept up to her standard excellent performance. No one else in the cast of "A Family Under Siege" is worth mentioning. The writing and screen play is the worst. No one in the movie was worth their pay.
I wouldn't watch it for free - which I did. This was so bad, that I know I won't watch it again "by accident". It was too bad to ever forget any part of it.
