Eventually, I was actually really surprised by this flick and I’m rather amazed that it doesn’t get more credit nowadays.

Making A Scene: Memorable Movie Scenes (13 movies items)

"The Theatre Scene That scene jumps right in your face. It greatly captures the horror of terrorism. The speech and torture scene is also very memorable, but it didn't quite hammer into my head."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2017 (33 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 56min. First Viewing The script is fairly wobbly, it never fully comes together in a satisfying way and goes on way too long, but The Siege has more pluses than negatives.

"Post 9/11 Reactions While the reactions to 9/11 were not exactly like what happened in the Siege, you have to admit that there were similarities between the Siege and real life. "

"This one is truly a masterpiece. Unfortunately, when I saw it in the movie theatre, it freaked me out too much to see again."
