Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 11/13/1998
"...A provocative, incendiary subject....Points the way for Bening as a soulful nerotic siren of the Faye Dunaway school..."
USA Today - 11/27/1998
"...Denzel Washington is fun to watch..."
Box Office - 12/01/1998
"...Washington is perfectly cast as the film's conscience and voice of reason. Shalhoub, in a more dramatic turn than usual, is believable and effective..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/06/1998
"...THE SIEGE is a political thriller with more plausibility -- and yes, more thrills -- than most....It's a pleasure to have actors of this caliber working together....THE SIEGE also benefits from being well-crafted..."
Premiere - 06/15/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "A film that was an interesting concept in 1998 and quickly became astoundingly prescient after 2001
