Under Siege 2: Dark Territory

About The Story

Under Siege 2 - Promotional Poster Under Siege 2 - Promotional Poster

Rocketing through the Colorado wilderness is a majestic passenger train. Orbiting miles about the earth is a satellite weapon of mass destruction. A madman connects them...

And only a hero can stop him.

STEVEN SEAGAL returns to the role of Casey Ryback, the mild-mannered cook and resourceful ex-Navy SEAL, that he created in the hugely successful "Under Siege." This time, the danger is on rails instead of at sea, but the stakes are even higher.

Travis Dane (Eric Bogosian), a brilliant, maniacal technological expert, has hijacked the Grand Continental, America's most elegant train, on a run through the breathtaking Rocky Mountains. With the help of a crack cadre of mercenaries, he converts one of the train's cars into a mobile - and untraceable - computer command center.

Barreling undetected through the Rockies, Dane uses an array of hyper-modern technology to seize control of the deadly, top-secret government satellite he created before being taken off his project and fired. This awesome orbiting super-weapon is capable of laying waste to hundreds of square miles of earth... or picking off a single jet in flight.

Now having wrested control of the satellite away from his former government superiors, Dane is poised to engage his insidious invention unless they meet his demands.

His plan: the complete nuclear destruction of Washington, D.C.

His target: the Pentagon and its subterranean nuclear reactor.

His price: one billion dollars.

His problem: one of the train's passengers happens to be a soft-spoken former cook and lethally talented ex-Navy SEAL named Casey Ryback (Steven Seagal).

As the Grand Continental careens into "dark territory" - a dangerous region of wilderness without directions signals, radio communication, or any possibility of help - the fate of three million people lies in the hands of Casey Ryback alone.

The cast of "Under Siege 2" also includes Katherine Heigl as Sarah, Ryback's rebellious 17-year-old niece and travelling companion, Everett McGill as Penn, Travis Dane's merciless right hand man; and Morris Chestnut as Bobby, a terrified train porter recruited by Ryback as a reluctant sidekick. Also appearing are NICK MANCUSO and ANDY ROMANO (both of whom reprise their roles from "Under Siege"), DAVE GIANAPOULOS and BRENDA BAKKE.

"Under Siege 2" is directed by GEOFF MURPHY and produced by Steven Seagal, ARNON MILCHAN and STEVE PERRY. The behind-the-camera talent includes director of photography ROBBIE GREENBERG, editor MICHAEL TRONICK, production designer ALBERT BRENNER and costume designer RICHARD BRUNO. RICHARD YURICICH created and photographed the extensive visual effects. The film is a New Regency Production released by Warner Bros.
