" The secret U.S. abduction of a suspected terrorist leads to a wave of terrorist attacks in New York City, which leads to the declaration of martial-law. The movie did moderately okay with critics, and ok with audiences. However, The Siege was controversial after the fact,When the film opened, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee came out against the film. And that it depicted unfavourable depictions of Muslims. Interestingly enough, rentals took off after September 11th."
