Under Siege

Revealing mistake: When Ryback jury-rigs a timed explosive to destroy the helicopter, he uses a tin of paint thinner which is expected to fall off a hand grenade, thus releasing the spring on the grenade. However, when the explosion occurs you can see over Ryback's shoulder that the paint thinner tin hasn't moved at all, and that the explosion occurs inside the helicopter, not where the grenade was placed.

Revealing mistake: At the part where Ryback places a grenade on the door and the man gets blown away by opening it, the shot just before reveals that it's an obvious dummy (best seen in slow-motion).

Revealing mistake: When Seagal kills Tommy Lee Jones, he either sticks the knife into his head or smacks him on the top of his head with his fist (it's not that clear). But what appears to be clear is that this is in fact a dummy head or a stunt double - it looks very unlike Lee Jones.

Revealing mistake: When Ryback busts out his fellow mates and hands out weapons to them, the Uzi given to one of his mates does not have a magazine in it. (01:02:20)

Continuity mistake: When the man tries to attack the terrorist while being moved to their "prison", Strannix shoots the man next to the one who attacks, saying something like "If you try anything we will shoot you and the man beside you". In this scene he is wearing a black sweater. In the scene before and after he is wearing the pink T-shirt and leather jacket.

Question: Early on in the film Casey cracks a joke about "Andre and Boudreau going hunting down on the Bayou". He then delivers a punch line. The question is what does he actually say?

Answer: I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, LA. I heard plenty of Beaudreaux - Thibodeaux jokes growing up. I haven't the faintest idea what the joke was supposed to be. I ended up here trying to find the answer. Under Siege just popped up on NetFlix and I haven't seen it since I was a teenager. I stopped the video to try to look up this random joke. If it's a real Southern joke, maybe it comes from Mississippi or Arkansas.

Answer: If you have the DVD and use the subtitles feature you can see he says with a heavy bayou accent "Where're the guns, Druillet?" and then he repeats it. It must be a southern thing.

Answer: It doesn't mean anything actually it's just dialogue they made up for the film with no actual meaning.
