FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P86865~Andrew Davis~andrewdavis]] directed this exciting thriller starring [[Performer~P110609~Steven Seagal~stevenseagal]], sans ponytail, and featuring electric, over-the-top performances by [[Performer~P9844~Gary Busey~garybusey]] and [[Performer~P36238~Tommy Lee Jones~tommyleejones]]. This action saga takes place on the battleship USS Missouri, about to be decommissioned from service after a visit from George Bush. When Bush departs the vessel, a band of terrorists overcome the remaining skeleton crew and take over the ship, under the ruse of holding a surprise birthday party for the ship's commander, Captain Adams ([[Performer~P53561~Patrick O'Neal~patrickoneal]]). The band is led by Strannix (Jones), a disgruntled ex-CIA operative, and his right-hand man, the psychotic Krill (Busey). The terrorists plan to steal the ship's store of nuclear warheads, transfer them to a stolen North Korean submarine, and sell them to a Middle Eastern country. Unfortunately for Strannix, he has overlooked the ship's cook, Casey Ryback (Seagal). Ryback is a much-honored Navy SEAL who, because of a minor scandal, is quietly completing his twenty-year tour in the galley of the Missouri. Forced into action, Ryback, along with the woman who jumped out of Captain Adams' birthday cake ([[Performer~P21503~Erika Eleniak~erikaeleniak]]), knocks off the bad guys one-by-one while crawling inside the bowels of the ship. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
