I was a bit worried about doing Under Seige for my third review, seeing as my first two were both for Gary Busey movies. I don't want people to think that this is a "Busey Blog," although, tell me you wouldn't read that.
I was looking for something to watch the other day and there simply is no better choice than a good old fashioned Steven Seagal flick. Even though he was in movies before and after this, I would consider this to be his best. Not only does it have some of the best (worst) one-liners in his arsenal (keep the faith Stranix), but it also has a stellar supporting cast.
Tommy Lee Jones stars opposite Mr Seagal as the bad guy. I will repeat, Tommy Lee Jones as the bad guy...feel free to pause the reading of this blog to go rent it now.
Then of course you have Gary Busey, eating scenery like he won't be fed for a month. During the course of this film he gets decked by Seagal, dresses in drag, hocks a loogie into some boullibase, and helps start a revolution, all in a days work for Mr Busey.
Rounding out the cast is some prostitute, Chief O'Brian, about 17 "hey it's that guys", and everyone's favorite red headed secret service agent, Aaron Pierce.
I would defenately reccomend this to anyone, young and old alike. It has plenty of ridiculous action scenes on par with your Road Houses and your VanDammes, and there is a bit of the sexy for all of us; Erika Elanik for the fellas and of course for the ladies, well, I already mentioned Aaron Pierce.
Fun Fact: The frist hundred or so times I saw this movie, I thought it was Steven Seagal dancing in the galley scene toward the beginning...no joke.
Final Thought: If you do not rent this movie Gary Busey will pull your endocrine system out of your body"
