Overview
"Chilling, riveting" (ABC Radio Network) and "terrifyingly real" (Jeanne Wolf's Hollywood), The Siege has never been more explosive than on Blu-ray! Starring two-time OSCAR® Winner Denzel Washington*, three-time OSCAR® Nominee Annette Bening** and Golden Globe® winner Bruce Willis, this "tense and nerve-wracking" (Los Angeles Times) thriller redefines the genre!

Eerily prescient of the 9/11 attacks and their aftermath, The Siege — filmed more than three years before the attacks — tells a fictional story of terrorists who set off a series of bombs in and around New York City. An FBI special agent (Washington) and a U.S. Army general (Willis) team up to find out who responsible...and wage an all-out war against the ruthless terrorists. "Packed with excitement and surprises" (Journal News), this unforgettable, edge-of-your-seat thriller delivers an emotional charge!
