POLITICAL FANTASY-HOLLYWOOD STYLE
drkhimxz | Freehold, NJ, USA | 11/27/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Now let me see if I have this straight, President Clinton (playing himself as shown in newsreels) orders Federal troops into Brooklyn and has their commanding officer declare martial law. Meanwhile a CIA agent, entirely on her own, is "handling" an Arab terrorist, despite laws preventing such activity on American soil, while the local FBI agent, is conspiring to subvert the President's delegated Army Commander, so far as is shown, without consultation with the President's FBI Director. Meanwhile, the New York City police are apparently on vacation since they appear to be playing no investigative or other law enforcement role, apparently quite content to let the single CIA agent and the FBI station chief take all authority for law and order in the city. Meanwhile........................
Of course, the film was created subsequent to the first World Trade Center bombing and before the second air attack on 9/11. Of course, it is a work of fiction not a documentary. Of course, it is Denzil Washington's film so it is only reasonable that he be granted leeway to do just about anything screen writers can think of to have him do. Of course, he gets to make a number of noble speeches irrelevant to the dramatic situation at the time. Of course, the villain is a peculiar villain being accused of a power grab when he is shown multiple times standing up to higher authority at risk to his own career to reject being given that power.
A number of good actors were buried in this quagmire, notably Denzil Washington and Bruce Willis (who must have owed the producer or director a favor if he took this papier-mache role). The others pretty much do the best that they can with what they have to work with."
Great poltical/action film !

"The Siege is a very good movie about terroism. The writers and actors in this film did an excellent job!! What caught my eye about The Siege is that both Denzel Washington and Bruce Willis are in it. Denzel plays the (by the book) F.B.I agent While Willis plays a (whatever it takes to win) army General.
This film has a good plot and is very entertaining!!"
