Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

The Siege (1998)

Directed by Edward Zwick

Starring Denzel Washington, Annette Bening, Bruce Willis, Tony Shalhoub


A few tense moments, but mostly it’s about neglected characters taking turns crying about their problems. Bad formula writing, with too much “I’m a cool stud” dialogue.

Lots of actors who bother me in this one. Denzel is OK, but I’m not sure he’s any more than a hard gaze and an articulate speaker. He never seems to have much personality. Willis’ smirk gets annoying. He hasn’t done anything good since Twelve Monkeys.
