    Mediocre movie - decent if you are looking for a political thriller. Some exciting scenes throughout the movie, but lack of flow and clarity on plot makes the movie suffer.

    As a nail-biting thriller, The Siege is too confusing, and as a thought-provoking social drama, too confused.
  2. 60
    If The Siege frustrates anyone, it should be the moviegoers who turn up expecting the kind of clean resolution that action movies thrive on.
  3. At some point, the movie itself crosses the line, from a modestly thoughtful attempt to extrapolate a drama from real and urgent events to a generic action piece with predictable good and bad guys and pat, civics-book morals.
