Under Siege 2
Warner Bros. / 1995 / 94 Mins / Rated MA15+


MOVIE
It took 3 years to bring this sequel to life and for the life of me I can't figure out why, it couldn't have been the writing??? The script was just a recycled Under Siege script with ship scribbled out and train written in.

Maybe it was the execs trying to figure where to set it?

"Hey Chuck where are we going to set this movie?" 

"I dunno Bob how about a Building?" 

" Nope done already", Chuck said 

"Boat?, whoops already done that".

So Bob and Chuck made a list of possible settings until they stumbled across one that hadn't been done.

"I got it Chuck how about a train?"

"Wonderful" Bob said.

So anyway Bob and Chuck did a Hi-Five and then went out and partied with some cocaine, hookers and other shallow Hollywood friends and in return we get Under Siege 2.

Now your probably thinking he don't like this movie, but that would be incorrect. I just had to pad the review as there are no extras to talk about. The movie though is just as fun as the original but with worse actors.

While on a train with his brother's daughter, the train is hijacked by a nut bag that designed a very bad satellite that can destroy whole cities.

Again Seagal must use his patented, Slap them like a girl till they fall or I kill them move, while he goes through the train in order to stop the evil nut bag and save the world yet again. Go Steve!

VIDEO
Under Siege has a sharp transfer, Colors were well rendered but again shadow detail was slightly lacking. There were quite a few MPEG artifacts throughout the movie. There were no film artifacts noted.

Under Siege II is framed at 1:85:1 and is 16:9 enhanced.

This is a single-sided, single layer disc.

AUDIO

Encoded in Dolby 5.1, Under Siege II has a soundtrack as good as it's predecessor. The surround channels are well integrated into the mix and it is very enveloping. The .1 channel also pumps throughout. Good stuff.

Dialog was always easy to hear.

EXTRAS

There are no extras whatsoever. 

Subtitles: English, French, Italian, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Closed Captioned.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Just like the original, just with worse actors and it's set on a train.
