Review

Terrorists take over the US Navy's most famous battleship, the USS Missouri, and find its cook is none other than ex-Navy S. E. A. L. Steven Seagal. The resulting gung-ho action aboard the confines of the vessel makes for tense, gripping entertainment in the style of Die Hard. With Seagal on top fighting form in what must be his best movie and Tommy Lee Jones giving a super OTT turn as the chief villain, it's a real slam-bang ride. Busty centrefold playmate Erika Eleniak, as a visiting dancer, and Gary Busey, as Jones' inside man on the ship, help fill out the action.
