UNDER SIEGE transcended a serious liability -- its hulking, near-comatose star -- with a witty script, agile direction and a bravura performance by Tommy Lee Jones. The sequel, with Steven Seagal reprising his role as the galley cook from hell, has none of

these assets. Warner Bros. released the picture without critics' screenings; you don't have to be a Hollywood insider to know what that means. This time cult performance artist Eric Bogosian plays the superbaddie and the action takes place on a train instead of a boat. We'll bet you our measly

paycheck that UNDER SIEGE 3 is set on an airplane -- although, given the precipitous downward trajectory of Seagal's career, a moped or a pair of in-line skates isn't out of the question.
