When I saw the heights to come” under siege,“I felt like I had seen before the movie Terrorists descend on the USS Missouri and thrash the great battleship. The crew is caught off guard and cancelled. But the bad guys overlook one man— Maharaj- The one who turns into a one man army and fights back.
The formula is strong” Die Hard Goes to Sea. I went into webbing in a pessimistic frame of mind, but a funny thing happened too. The film started working for me.
One of the reasons for this is the attractive and satisfying appearance of the battleship. I learn, by reading the product notes, that director Andrew Davis and his crew did not shoot in the real Missouri, but used a decommissioned USS Alabama.
In several shots the boat appears to be at sea when it is actually docked in Mobile, Ala. They could crack me intelligently. The film does an atrocious job of playing out every scene like a real incident on a boat at sea, and that’s part of its charm. is actually a walk-on George BushTouring the boat before its fateful final passage.
Cast is also effective. star is Steven Seagalwho has chopped off her ponytail to play a former Navy idol serving his last stint as a chef.
The reasons for that assignment are complicated (he got into trouble, but the Commander is his friend) but Siegel makes a satisfying chef; He can hit a target with a figure cutter at 20 speed, and he really looks like he’s put on several pounds at work, Belting the bouillabaisse.
The villains are brilliant, gruesome and downright insane.

Jones Has developed into one of the most effective and intriguing villains in the picture, perhaps because he is not hysterical to go over the top—as he does then, as a heavy-handed rocker and later as a lunatic. Spreads political taglines in radio like Zalim. settledAs the rec officer plays out his big murder scene in drag, munching on the decorations as if he’s enjoying every bite.
The film’s plot, of course, is absurd, involving a half-conceived plan to steal the boat’s nuclear weapons, stealing them. North Korea submarine, and them Middle East. No problem. The details of the cat-and-mouse chase around the boat are persuasive and well-directed.
And director Davis is not above a put-on when he introduces Playboy’s Miss July 1989 (Erika Eleniak) In the plot, and there’s no better reason to follow Seagull on her perilous adventures than she seems to be extremely inconsistent in every scene.
Andrew Davis Not a director whose name is familiar to many moviegoers, I think, but he has built up an emotional body of action work.” rule of silence was stylish Chuck Norris film, his “The Package” was an atrocious gene hackman suspenser, and he directed Seagal’s debut“Above the Law” (1988).

whereas seagull character While he has a noble purpose (i.e., saving the world), his regular bloodshed of bad guys teaches us that wrong can only be overcome by more wrong.
