Under Siege 2: Dark Territory



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

Sex & Nudity
Violence & Gore
1 to 10

MPAA Rating: R

Steven Seagal saves the world again in this sequel which has the cook from "Under Siege" battling terrorists on a train.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Bare buttocks and the breasts of a woman are seen on a computer screen, passionate kissing. A man and woman having sex are interrupted by an explosion (we see their bare shoulders).

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - Many scenes of people being shot indiscriminately, with the victims writhing and jerking with each shot; some blood is seen. Martial arts moves are used on a few people and sometimes this results in some blood (nose, mouth, bruised face). We hear bones crunching and squishy noises during these scenes (necks are broken twice) and the victims scream and moan. In a couple of scenes smears and pools of blood are seen. Many scenes of people running atop a moving train, some of them fall to their deaths. A man threatens to poke the eyes out of two people with a hot needle. A man's wrist is cut and we see a deep, bloody gash in close-up. A man is knifed in the throat and dies with a gurgle. A man is thrown under the train and we see his bloody head bobbing up and down. A man's bloody fingers are lopped off and he falls to his death from a helicopter. A man is forced to shoot himself in the chin and blood sprays behind him. Two explosions.

PROFANITY 8 - About 30 F-words, a couple of dozen scatological terms, many milder obscenities. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Terrorism, insanity, megalomania, military weaponry.

MESSAGE - Our military defense weapons could be used against us.

Special Keywords: S3 - V7 - P8 - MPAAR

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
