What's it about?

New York cop and everyman, John McClane (Willis), flies all the way to L.A., has a fight with the wife, thinks his day can’t get any worse, then it does.


One of the most tightly scripted, best directed, wonderfully acted action films of all time, Die Hard is tense, funny, charming and despite excessive violence to feet, legs, torsos and heads, remains somehow a true ode to joy.


Setting an entire template for a new sub-genre, the film introduced the world to Willis the action hero, Rickman the Legend, and succeeded in making vests look cool.


A hero to root for, a villain to cheer for, a movie to die for; with an assortment of Job’s-Worth Pricks, Immoral Dicks, and people you’d like to call your friend, playing here for both teams - Law and Terror. Die Hard is a film oft emulated, never bested.


“Rumour has it Arafat buys his there.”

“Hey, we’re flexible. Pearl Harbour didn’t work out, so we got you with tape decks.”

“It’s a Rolex.”

The pitch: "Come up with a Die Hard sequel that can substitute for any that followed the 1988 action classic or form a new entry entirely."
