Under Siege 2 gets its Blu-ray debut complete with a 1080p High Definition video rendition in the movie's original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 widescreen. Introduction Under Siege surprised many people who expected total and utter drivel but got an entertaining action movie. In "Under Siege 2: Dark Territory" Steven Seagal is back as Casey Ryback, ex-Navy SEAL and current cook, and he's as snidely catatonic as ever. genre: die hard clone, action, thriller. Like the mid 1990s. The success of "Die Hard on a ship" led to an inevitable sequel - Under Siege 2: Dark Territory or "Die Hard on a train". Directed by Geoff Murphy.

REVIEW: Under Siege 2: Dark Territory (1995) There is a moment in the middle of Geoff Murphy’s Under Siege 2: Dark Territory in which a group of mercenaries have hijacked a long-haul passenger train, only to find that one of the passengers has taken matters into his hands and is killing them off one by one. Under Siege 2 is an unfairly underrated movie. When I saw the coming attractions trailer for "Under Siege," I had the feeling I'd already seen the movie: Terrorists land on the USS Missouri and occupy the great battleship. On vacation with his niece on a train from Denver to L.A., he unwittingly gets drawn into another battle with terrorists intent on blowing up Washington. Early into the trip, terrorists board the train and use it as a mobile HQ to hijack a top secret destructive US satellite. Under Siege 2-Dark Territory sees Ryback in the same scenario as detective John McClane, wrong place, wrong time. Casey Ryback hops on a Colorado to LA train to start a vacation with his niece. A fairly disappointing follow-up, Under Siege 2: Dark Territory follows Steven Seagal’s Casey Ryback as he’s forced to once again spring into action after armed terrorists commandeer a passenger train. It's about as far-fetched as the first film was, but… The formula is obvious: "Die Hard Goes to Sea." With Steven Seagal, Eric Bogosian, Everett McGill, Katherine Heigl. When I saw this the first time I liked it but didn't like it as much as the original. Review Under Siege 2: Dark Territory (1995): Die Hard on a train!
