Under Siege (1992)

Of all the action movies I had lined up, I probably made fun of this one the most. Ironically it wasn't all that bad. Steven Seagal and his "no one can hit me in the face on film because that isn't realistic," attitude crack me up. This is easily his most popular film followed by his debut Above the Law. Believe it or not he is actually still making movies, pick any for a good laugh.

Nominated for two Oscars for editing and sound, this film is not special because of Seagal, more because of the laughable bad villains Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey. It seemed like these two really had fun with this movie and the subtle humor of their characters made this a fun watch. Busey running around hijacking the ship while in drag, Jones acting like he is going crazy. Sure Seagal was slightly witty as a master chef who is as a decorated war hero.

If you want to experience Seagal, without laughing, check this one out.

Vote: 7/10
