LoveHKFilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/city_under_siege.html
«City Under Siege is splendidly awful, meaning it's ill-conceived, mystifyingly bizarre and also hilariously entertaining. One of the more "special" films of the year. Aaron Kwok: you should return one of those Golden Horse Awards.»
movieXclusive.com, by Linus Tee - 2.5/5 source: http://www.moviexclusive.com/review/cityundersiege/cityundersiege.html
«"City Under Siege" is a bad movie for the masses. Again, it’s another one of Benny Chan’s signature, popcorn action flicks though it somewhat tries to include too much cheesy humour and clichés. Minus the sci-fi factor (i.e. horrendous make-up effects), "City Under Siege" actually can be quite entertaining. »
beyondHollywood.com, by JAMES MUDGE source: http://www.beyondhollywood.com/city-under-siege-2010-movie-review/
«Whilst there is no denying that “City Under Siege” is a complete and utter mess, it still stands as one of the most entertaining of this year’s Hong Kong blockbusters. No one does over acting quite like Aaron Kwok, and his fine performance marks the film as being this year’s “Murderer”, which gives a very good indication of just how much fun it offers, intentional or otherwise.»
