Under Siege

 

Under Siege is a 1992 action film starring Steven Seagal and Tommy Lee Jones. It’s one of the sub-genre of films best described as “Die Hard on an X,” in this case a soon-to-be-retired Us Navy Battleship, the USS Missouri. Seagal is Casey Ryback, a Chief Petty Officer in the ship’s galley, although he originally was a Navy SEAL, a highly-trained special forces soldier. He is serving out the last of his enlistment as personal cook to Captain Adam’s, and (apart from an asshole of an Executive Officer) everything is going well. Unfortunately, on the ship’s last cruise, a group of mercenaries led by Tommy Lee Jones (in one of his wonderfully insane roles) arrive aboard disguised as caterers and a band for the Captain’s birthday. With the help of the turncoat XO the mercenaries seize the ship and proceed to loot it’s Tomahawk missiles for sale. Ryback begins a campaign to stop them, eventually enlisting an out-of-place Playboy model (hired to jump out of the birthday cake) and several other sailors. The film climaxes with the group of heroes turning the battleship’s guns on the mercenary’s escaping submarine before stopping a pair of nuclear missiles.

It’s a non-stop action flick with plenty of violence, explosions, gratuitous shots of the battleship herself (which was actually the museum ship USS Alabama, since the Missouri was still in service) and a Playboy model jumping out of a cake at the wrong moment.

About The Under Siege Movie Theme Song

The reason we’re posting this film today is so we have an excuse to share Jimi Hendrix’s rendition of the American anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, which can be heard playing during the film. This was recorded some time prior to Woodstock, but the festival was it’s real debut. Hendrix performed the piece solo, adding several distorted regressions to mimic the rockets and “bombs bursting in air” that the anthem describes. THe original song is from a poem written by Francis Scott Key during the Siege of Fort McHenry in 1814. The rockets and bombs was actually gunfire from British vessels int he bay.

Artist/Group: Jimi Hendrix (written By Francis Scott Key)
Track: The Star Spangled Banner
