      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Utterly forgettable and completely unnecessary, Under Siege 2 represents a steep comedown from its predecessor -- and an unfortunate return to form for its star.

      sean G Perfect movie, nice story , great special effects for the year it was made, very good 2nd movie, shame there was not a 3rd one .10/10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/24 Full Review Kay B I enjoyed this movie. Some fun entertainment. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/24 Full Review William D It was an okay film that could have been a whole lot better. It is worth watching once. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/27/23 Full Review Jack t Okay so after I review the smash hit Under Siege the first film I have to review the second film which you both think it's not as good as the first, this is one of my favourites. It came out in 1995 where I was born and in some ways, yeah that's the way it is and in other ways it came out the same year as Pocahontas but in other ways the fight scenes are really great, in other ways it's fantastic, in other ways this is the best sequels ever made if not the best, oh boy, I'm just a sucker. The end fight scene is awesome and the train crash is absolutely fxxking awesome. Eric Bogosian is pretty good in it and Morris Chestnut is hilarious in it as well. This is the one that I can think whilst looking at my collection! Holy sxxt! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/18/23 Full Review Jelisije J A very lazy sequel that basically copies and pastes the entire story of the first movie and put Steven Seagal on a train instead of a submarine. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/15/23 Full Review DanTheMan 2 Admittedly, I got a sense of false hope when I saw Written by Matt Reeves pop up in the opening credits, however, it's very easy to see that very little of whatever was written by Reeves remains in Under Siege 2 and that Seagal pretty much rewrote and adlibbed whatever his ego demanded on the fly in what ultimately becomes Steven Seagal vs TECHNOLOGY the movie. Like the first Under Siege, most of the film is propped up by everyone surrounding Seagal. His non-existent acting chops are only made worse by the false chemistry he thinks he shares with an underage Katherine Heigl who clearly is having none of it yet turns in a good performance anyway. Eric Bogosian and Everett McGill are decent enough villains but with the pedestrian dialogue and limited screen time they don't have the same impact as the villainous trio from the original even with some enjoyably hammy overacting. Overall, Under Siege 2: Dark Territory is a pretty dated and lifeless sequel with various similarities to GoldenEye released later the same year, right up until the insane third act which makes slogging through the rest of the film somewhat worth it. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune A most entertaining sequel to a terrific action picture. Rated: 3/4 Aug 16, 2017 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle Rated: 0/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review James Berardinelli ReelViews Rated: 0.5/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins There's still entertainment to be had as Seagal goes through his usual counterterrorism routines, but here he uses guns more than his famous hand-to-hand combat techniques. Rated: 5/10 Sep 24, 2020 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews A fairly disappointing follow-up... Rated: 2/4 Apr 5, 2020 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid A well-paced, dumb, fun movie. Oct 24, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews
