Review Under Siege 2: Dark Territory (1995): Die Hard on a train! 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. Under Siege 2: Dark Territory Pic once again adopts the "wrong guy at the right time" premise. 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. When I saw this the first time I liked it but didn't like it as much as the original. 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. Under Siege 2-Dark Territory sees Ryback in the same scenario as detective John McClane, wrong place, wrong time. Like the mid 1990s. Introduction Under Siege surprised many people who expected total and utter drivel but got an entertaining action movie. genre: die hard clone, action, thriller. Casey Ryback hops on a Colorado to LA train to start a vacation with his niece. The crew is caught off guard and neutralized. With Steven Seagal, Eric Bogosian, Everett McGill, Katherine Heigl. 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. However upon each viewing I actually am enjoying it a whole lot better. 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.
