Critic Reviews of "The Siege"Rolling StoneMay 11, 2001
It's difficult to sustain a responsible subtext when you're delivering the jolts required to keep butts in the seats.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
Even at its most unbelievable, The Siege has the performances of Washington and Bening to fall back on, and a theme that understands that what's difficult is not choosing right from wrong but 'choosing the wrong that's more right.'CNN.comJanuary 01, 2000
Typical summer popcorn fare.San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
The script is too muddled to be remedied by vigorous filmmaking.Detroit NewsJanuary 01, 2000

A gripping build up gives way to an incredibly dumb finish.Boxoffice MagazineJune 05, 2002
