The bumbling cadets, not police officers, take to the street to tackle three talented criminals who orchestrate a city wide crime wave under the guidance of an unknown mastermind.
Police Academy (1984) is undoubtedly a comedy classic of the 1980s, Which was a good decade for comedies, but that movie has since spawned two or three sequels too many. City Under Siege is the, so far, second to last Police Academy movie, but if you enjoy the amusing characters and the type of comedy the series uses, City Under Siege is not totally bad, there are several funny scenes, and the stable character are fun as always. The story is simple and the situations seems very familiar by now, but it has an innocent charm to its silliness. Recommended only to those who like Police Academy.
Throughout the film, the Mayor keeps stumbling over his words and forgetting simple words. This was not in the script but was improvised by Kenneth Mars.
