High above the city of L.A. a team of terrorists has seized a building, taken hostages and declared war. One man has managed to escape. An off-duty cop hiding somewhere inside. He’s alone, tired… and the only chance anyone has got.
New York detective John McClane, played by Bruce Willis (The Sixth Sense, 12 Monkeys), is on his way to LA to see his wife and children. His plans must quickly change, however, when a terrorist cell led by Hans Gruber (played with excellent villainy by Allan Rickman) seizes the high-rise McClane’s wife works in, leaving him no choice but to go in and try to save the day in this, the original, prototypical modern action thriller.
Die Hard 2
On a snowy Christmas Eve, in the nation’s capital, a team of terrorists has seized a major international airport, and now holds thousands of holiday travellers’ hostage. The terrorists, a renegade band of crack military commandos led by a murderous rogue officer (William Sadler), have come to rescue a drug lord from justice. They’ve prepared for every contingency, except one: John McClane, an off-duty seized by a feeling of deadly deja vu.
Bruce Willis returns as the heroic cop who battles not only terrorists, but also an incompetent airport police chief (Dennis Franz), the hard-headed commander (John Amos) of the army’s anti-terrorist squad and a deadly winter snowstorm. The runways are littered with death and destruction, and McClane is in a race against time. His wife (Bonnie Bedelia) is trapped on one of the planes circling somewhere overhead, desperately low on fuel.
It’s all-out war, a heart-stopping, jet-propelled journey through excitement and terror. Fasten your seatbelts!
