Synopsis


Under Siege 2: Dark Territory
In the original box-office smash Under Siege, action hero Steven Seagal played Casey Ryback, a U.S. Navy SEAL who saved the world from nuclear destruction by outsmarting and killing off terrorists who had commandeered a submarine. In this sequel, Seagal's Ryback character does the same sort of thing aboard a train. Ryback now has retired from the Navy and is taking his niece Sarah (Katherine Heigl) on a vacation. They board a train traveling through the Rocky Mountains. Criminal mastermind Travis Dane (Eric Bogosian) is using the train as a control center in his effort to kidnap a top-secret government outer space super-weapon. Dane built the weapon but then was fired by the government before it was deployed. He has hooked up with shadowy Middle Eastern terrorists who have offered him $1 billion to use the satellite to blow up the Eastern seaboard by targeting a secret nuclear reactor underneath the Pentagon. Dane shows the Pentagon that he's got control of the weapon by blowing up a Chinese chemical plant. Officials can't stop him because they can't locate his headquarters. As long as the train keeps moving, his location can't be fixed. Ryback learns of the plot and enlists a porter named Bobby (Morris Chestnut) to help him in his battle. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi

    Under Siege 2: Dark Territory is solid entertainment, nothing more, and nothing less. It's the prototypical action movie with plenty of clichéd characters and scenes, but it all comes together to make a film action lovers will enjoy every now and again, once the film has faded from memory. It's a worthy sequel to a fine first effort. It doesn't surpass its predecessor in any way, but that's alright. Casey Ryback borders on being a memorable action icon, and one more solid Under Siege film may have solidified him as one of the more recognizable and marketable characters of the 1990s. Unfortunately, Seagal's career soon took a turn for the worse and to date, no further Under Siege films are available. Warner Brothers' Blu-ray release of Under Siege 2: Dark Territory is a minor disappointment. Offering decent picture quality and a loud, aggressive, but jumbled soundtrack lacking any polish, and a handful of trailers as the only bonus materials, this disc is for hardcore Seagal fans only.

    Not worth it, save for the fight scenes

    The fight scenes were good, its Segal as the same old character, only this one has a name to match Under Siege 1, other than that, its the same persona as all the other movies. Story makes no sense, and the character doesn't fit in. It's the Die Hard Wrong Place at the Wrong Time scenario, but with martial arts, and on a train. This movie is to Segal, as Snakes on a Plane is to Sam Jackson, only not nearly as funny. I personally find Under Siege 1 to be my favorite Segal Film, but tied to his early work, this one however, thouroughly dissappoints. Pretend it didn't happen and just casually watch it on tv, or go for a bargain rental.

    US2:DT is pretty great. A solid followup to an already good movie. Casey Ryback the chef/Navy SEAL is back and shows a softer side. When not taking care of the customers in his restaurant that apparently only come to see/talk to him, he is meeting his late brother's daughter for a trip on a train. This ones a beauty I won't want to spoil. Highlights are Big Ed from Twin Peaks as the bad guy as well as some fun hand-to-hand CQC. Highly recommend.

    Not As Good As the Original

    In my opinion, the first 'Under Siege' wasn't that great, so it came as no surprise to me that this sequel wasn't any better. Widescreen for those who enjoyed it.
