Consdiering the movie came out prior to Sept 11, 2001, the emotions and mood throughout the movie was incredibly well set. This is a MUST watch movie.

for me,this was a pretty good drama dealing with what would happen if
there was a major terrorist attack in the U.S.since 9/11,of course we
know what would happen,but this movie was made before that tragedy.it's
pretty well made,and fairly believable for the most part.there are some
moments which are a bit hard to believe,but those scenes are used
mostly to heighten the tension and further the story.there's some star
Power here including Bruce Willis,Denzel Washington,and Annette
Benning,but they all take a back seat to the story itself.at least i
thought they did.none of them overpowered the movie.in the end,i
thought the movie was well done,and more realistic than many movies
before it dealing with the the same subject matter.for me,The Siege is
a 4/5

All these five star reviews that, after the events of 9/11, call the film "haunting" and "important" and "before it's time." Yeah, it's definitely weird watching this movie knowing that it came out three years before the attacks. And it certainly does fit in with what's going on in the world these days.
However, from a cinematic standpoint, this is no five-star film. The plot jumps around and is sometimes almost headache-inducing. The pace often meanders and Annette Bening is annoying. However, there are a few pretty good scenes; the best being when Denzel is trying to negotiate with a group of terrorists holding a city bus hostage. A couple other exciting moments, hence the three stars.
Please, don't believe the hype unless you want to be disappointed. But, if you want to see a sporadically entertaining sign-of-the-times film, "The Siege" is isn't a bad way to kill two hours.

Denzel should have gotten his oscar here. Scarily real scenario that almost played out three years later. Will be giving many copies of this to friends.

The Siege realistically portrays what the government is capable of under such extreme circumstances. Enveloped in a collective paranoid terror, citizens of New York City crouch and drop to the ground at the sound of a bus backfiring. The government responds by declaring martial law and breaking regulations: First, the US Army cannot be used against the American people, and second, the government cannot legally invade the privacy of its citizens. Although this movie was before the Patriot Act, which allows law enforcement agencies to gather information from emails and cell phones, the extent to which the Army goes in The Siege is far beyond the tenets of the Patriot Act.
Anyway, it is a great movie, and I cannot see why someone would find this movie racist. The Arab citizens are portrayed as normal people just like everybody else, and just because a movie contains a scene in which Arabs are sent to internment camps (en masse) does not mean that the creater of the film believes that this is correct.
As for the acting, every role was played superbly, although Elise was not very convincing...
And, in response to the person who said that they never really said why the terrorist cells were attacking, here is the answer, which anyone who is really paying attention should be able to grasp:
The U.S. secretly kidnaps a Muslim religious leader, which sparks terrorist attacks on the city of New York.

I don't have much to say other than that the movie is pretty rivetting and well made. It definitely was under-rated when it came out and is a MUST SEE for people today.
NY Times published an article today entitled: "2 Men Charge Abuse in Arrests After 9/11 Terror Attack" (May 3, 2004). The parallels are just scary: so much so that I almost immediately thought of this movie.
Read this article and you will understand what made this such a prescient, important movie then, and now more than ever.
Or worse yet, juxtapose this situation with the one in Iraq at Abu Gharib Prison and it only gets scarier.

I was expecting this to be, possibly like most, an action packed/explosive, short on storyline, film... But I was utterly surprised by it.
In my opinion, this film could only be deemed a propoganda piece if you do not believe or have no hope that someone with the same calibre as the Denzel Washington character exists today.
The messages throughout are captivating and believeable and are articulated without being overbearing, even though the film itself is a bit loud.
I was drawn to Tony Shalhoub's character far more than Denzel Washington's. He was far more interesting and superbly played by Mr Shalhoub; though Denzel Washington puts in another excellent performance in this film; as does Bruce Willis (and he is not a favourite of mine) Annette Bening was excellent as the CIA agent and her character left me wondering just how far she allowed her ideals control the decisions she made.
I would recommend this film to fans of Tony Shalhoub and Denzel Washington any day.

One night, I was at a friends' sleepover and his family got a brand-new DVD player (keep in mind, this was a few years ago when DVD players started selling like the bubonic plague...) and they bought a few DVDs that we were going to watch. The first one we happened to watch was 1998's "The Siege," starring Denzel Washington and directed by the talented Edward Zwick, best known for directing the epic "Glory," which also starred Washington, and the recent "Last Samurai." Both were grand epics with a moving story and a grand dose of acting talent and beautiful visuals. Now, "The Siege" is a different kind of film, but with the talent involved, this movie fell below my expectations.
Washington stars as "Hub," an FBI agent leading a team in finding the terrorists responsible for a series of bombings in New York. They often refer to them as "cells," which I am assuming as groups or an organization of some type; the film is never really clear what a "cell" is. Tony Shalhoub plays Frank, FBI partner and an American of Arab descent, and also feels threatened by the United States when The President sends a crazed general (Bruce Willis) to install martial law on New York, which causes every Arab-descented individual to be locked up, including Frank's son. Annette Bening plays a CIA spy attempting to crack the case and has some involvement as well...
I must say Edward Zwick still has his directorial flair for entertainment, but the screenplay could've used some serious modifications. The movie jumps around a lot without a clear focus. We also never really know WHY the Arabs are bombing New York in the first place. The acting in it isn't very good either...
