Casey Ryback hops on a Colorado to LA train to start a vacation with his niece. Early into the trip, terrorists board the train and use it as a mobile HQ to hijack a top secret destructive US satellite.
The gruesome murder of a Brooklyn Detective will turn the case into a personal vendetta when the deceased's best friend and fellow officer will unleash an all-out attack against a psychotic Mafia enforcer's brutal gang.
This movie tells the story of a man who goes undercover in a hi-tech prison to find out information to help prosecute those who killed his wife. While there he stumbles onto a plot involving a death-row inmate and his $200 million stash of gold.

Seal Team Commander Casey Ryback has retired from the Navy since the conclusion of the events in the first movie, and is now a chef at the Mile High Cafe in Denver, Colorado. Ryback is taking his niece Sarah Ryback on vacation, to reconnect and commiserate with her after the death of her parents. They board a train traveling westbound through the Rocky Mountains from Denver to LA. With the help of gun-for-hire Marcus Penn a couple dozen of his mercenaries, ex-CIA brain (and mentally unstable) Travis Dane commandeers the train, takes the passengers and crew hostage, and sets up a mobile control center. He hacks into the CIA database and gains control of a Top-Secret defence satellite he designed during his Agency days that has just been deployed. Funded by various foreign interests, he stands to make 1 billion dollars for using the space weapon to blow up the Eastern seaboard by targeting a nuclear reactor housed beneath the Pentagon.

Couple scenes had to be cut down for R rating; During the fight with a one eyed terrorist after Ryback cuts the terrorist's wrist their fight concluded with Ryback stabbing the terrorist in the neck causing blood to spurt out which is why you see blood on the terrorists chin and sweater when he falls out of the cupboard. The climatic fight between Ryback and Penn was also more graphic and brutal, at one point Ryback forces Penn's face onto a hot cooker before they fall down the stairs, which is why Penn has a large red mark on his left cheek in the rest of the scene.

This movie is so bad, I actually enjoy watching it. Did the producers think that they could improve on the original Under Siege? This movie should have NEVER been made, like many sequels, but the attempt at recreating exactly the same plot, exactly the same motives, exactly the same supporting protagonists is revolting--how much can a movie lover take? Hijacking a train? What? At one point, our hero takes a high-powered rifle bullet and keeps on going as if nothing ever happened. I don't care if it's the movies or not, that shot would have taken his whole shoulder off. Okay, I couldn't take it any more. Cable stations seem to play this sad picture anytime they can't find anything else to fill the spot. The only other movie that bit this bad was "Highlander 2: The Quickening." Why can't some movie producers simply rest on their laurels and accept a one-hit wonder like the first Under Siege?
