Overview

Andrew Davis directed this exciting thriller starring Steven Seagal, sans ponytail, and featuring electric, over-the-top performances by Gary Busey and Tommy Lee Jones. This action saga takes place on the battleship USS Missouri, about to be decommissioned from service after a visit from George Bush. When Bush departs the vessel, a band of terrorists overcome the remaining skeleton crew and take over the ship, under the ruse of holding a surprise birthday party for the ship's commander, Captain Adams (Patrick O'Neal). The band is led by Strannix (Jones), a disgruntled ex-CIA operative, and his right-hand man, the psychotic Krill (Busey). The terrorists plan to steal the ship's store of nuclear warheads, transfer them to a stolen North Korean submarine, and sell them to a Middle Eastern country. Unfortunately for Strannix, he has overlooked the ship's cook, Casey Ryback (Seagal). Ryback is a much-honored Navy SEAL who, because of a minor scandal, is quietly completing his twenty-year tour in the galley of the Missouri. Forced into action, Ryback, along with the woman who jumped out of Captain Adams' birthday cake (Erika Eleniak), knocks off the bad guys one-by-one while crawling inside the bowels of the ship.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
In the pantheon of action heroes of the 1990s, Steven Seagal ranks a notch below Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, but this 1992 vehicle did manage to knock Die Hard 2 for a loop. Seagal's stone-faced, emotionless character is a freelance do-gooder who has to save the crew of a battleship from a couple of nuclear terrorists who are threatening to -- guess what? -- blow up the world. While Seagal delivers plenty of brute force, villains played by Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey provided much-needed acting talent for this predictable story that delivered a big box-office impact. Director Andrew Davis faithfully packaged suspense and the requisite action scenes in a film that added to Seagal's growing reputation. Three years later, Seagal's character made a return, with the setting changed to a train, in a sequel entitled Under Siege 2: Dark Territory.
