I'm a big fan of Steven Seagal, so much so that I have every film he as released to date across multiple formats, but even the most ardent of fans surely cannot deny the considerable drop in the quality of his output.

There has been a gradual decline in production values from more or less his first few films, there have been the ocassional glimmers of hope offered but these are very much few and far between unfortunately.

However, 'Undersiege' is a film that very much shows the actor at the height of his powers; a good story, high production values, and an excellent cast with a reliable director resulted in this film being his biggest financial success to date.

If 'Undersiege' is to be remembered as the finest film of Steven Seagal's career I see no shame in that.

I won't take the time here to provide a synopsis of the story, I can imagine that there are few purchasing this Blu-ray who have not seen the film at some point, I will instead concentrate on the reasons as to why someone who may already own this film on DVD should re-invest in this high definition version from America.

Ok, first things first, this Blu-ray disc is REGION FREE.

Secondly the disc casing whilst having the same general dimensions as UK versions is the thinner American type, measuring 10mm thick (rather than 15mm), I only mention this because it may bother some, personally I think I actually prefer them!

The running time of the feature is 103 minutes, the UK DVD release is 98 minutes, and therein lies the first advantage of this version, it is UNCUT.

Just about all of the Region 2 DVD releases of Steven Seagal's early films (ie. the best ones!

Absolute classic action movie that never ever will get old! Has all the formula! Steven Seagal is top of his game in this film, a must own on blu-ray as the picture is much, much better than the DVD version, there are bits of grain here and there but who cares! The u.s import version is region free and 5 minutes longer with all the blood and gore, the u.k version is cut to bits and is not the definitive version for your collection.

OK, here's the deal. You love action thrillers and you've just seen all four Die Hard movies. Now you're sweating; you're hands are shaking; you're getting a really bad headache. You need another fix of guns and explosions fast. Well may I recommend that you try out this movie? Under Siege, the 1992 movie starring Steven Seagal.

In this movie a large group of terrorists, lead by the hippy-looking William Strannix (Tommy Lee Jones) and the traitorous Commander Krill (Gary Busey), hijack a battleship filled with tonnes of weapons and take all the sailors on the ship as hostages. To rub further salt into the sailors' wounds this all happens on the Captain's birthday. The nerve of some of these terrorists! The sailors' only hope of rescue comes in the form of Casey Ryback (Steven Seagal), an ex-Navy SEAL working on the ship as a lowly cook.

As an action thriller Under Siege does not disappoint. The opening 15 minutes are slow as the storyline needs to be established, but after that the movie really gets going and maintains a fast pace right up until the end credits start playing. Being set on a battleship you would think that there wouldn't be much room for maneuver in terms of gunfights and explosions; but this actually works for Under Siege. The cramped confined nature of the ship's corridors only make the gunfights more intense as you watch, knowing that one false move could spell the end for the hero.

As with most if not all of his movies Steven Seagal plays a level-headed character who always knows what to do, where to go and when to move. From start to finish he'll leave you repeatedly saying "He is SO cool." But threatening to upstage Seagal is Tommy Lee Jones. Jones plays Strannix, the leader of the terrorists and a lover of the 60's.
