Flick Pick: Under Siege

Under Siege
(Warner Bros., 1992)

Great action blockbuster, and the high-water mark of Steven Seagal's career. Good story idea, great execution, and the best two-fer of villains one's likely to ever find, in Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey. Also managed nominations for two Oscars, for Sound and Sound Effects Editing. This movie was one of the biggest box office successes in history when it premiered, and set the template for similar offerings ever since, not to mention being just plain fun to watch.
