Anthony Hubbard, the head of the FBI’s Counter-Terrorism Task Force in New York, teams up with CIA operative Elise Kraft to hunt down the terrorist cells responsible for the attacks. As the bombings continue, the US government responds by declaring martial law, sending US troops, led by Gen. Devereaux, into the streets of New York City.
Plot: The secret US abduction of a suspected terrorist from his Middle East homeland leads to a wave of terrorist attacks in New York. An FBI senior agent and his team attempt to locate and decommission the enemy cells, but must also deal with an Army General gone rogue and a female CIA agent of uncertain loyalties.

An intelligent film
I think that a lot of people who came to see this film would have been expecting a action film (due to the presence of Bruce Willis). If so, these people would inevitably have been disappointed.
The Siege is instead an intelligent thriller, which tries to show just how things could go badly wrong if America ever truly faced a terrorist threat on its own shores. It even puts across the valid view about the Iraqis, which is that we supported these people and then dumped them when they weren’t convenient anymore. It takes an unusual line in that in reality the terrorists aren’t the true threat, the military is because they have removed peoples freedom.
Good acting by all the principles with no flagging of pace. An excellent film.
