Ep. 110 — UNDER SIEGE (1992)

This week, we continue our "Try Hard" series, in which we take a look at films that were inspired by — and sometimes, blatantly ripped off — the template set by DIE HARDin 1988.

Our 2nd entry in the series is Andrew Davis' 1992 "DIE HARDon a boat" film, UNDER SIEGE, starring Steven Seagal!

This was the film that was poised to be Seagal's first "real" movie, a chance at legitimacy for the star of gritty, street level action films of the late 80s/early 90s.

So did it succeed? That's a discussion we'll get into, plus our typical dive into a behind-the-scenes look at the film, and of course, we'll break down just how it utilizes (and okay, totally steals) the DIE HARD formula.
