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.

    Nolte?

    Lemme just say that I'm glad the below reviewer has decided to serve his country, but I think he should watch the film again because Nick Nolte is not in this film and Seagal doesn't have a ponytail either. In fact, when he got it cut off, he was in the WB parking lot and someone stole it after he set it down on his car. This is one of Seagal's best films and really put him on the map. It helped him move from playing cop roles to secret agent and special forces soldiers roles instead. The knife fight between him and Tommy Lee Jones is certainly one of the best caught on film, at least until Jones had to outdo himself with Benicio Del Toro in The Hunted. Erike Eleniak was nice eye candy too.

    Gary Bussey too, it doesn't get any better

    Who is better, Bussey or Nolte. That question is answered in this non-stop action ride. Seagal plays a Navy chef who dodges bullets, hooks and punches throughout the movie and still manages to hang on to that classy pony tail. I can say honestly that this movie is one of the major reasons I enlisted in the Navy just yesterday.
