Die Hard

Forty stories. Twelve terrorists. One cop.

“Yippee ki yay, motherfudger!

Send your movie-loving’ self into Christmas overdrive with what is – hands down – one of the absolute biggest, baddest motherfudging edge-of-your-seat big screen thrill rides ever, DIE HARD. In (arguably) his signature performance, Bruce Willis shines as a streetsmart (and mostly barefoot!) cop tasked with outsmarting a group of terrorists who have taken over a building in downtown LA. Also starring the late, great Alan Rickman (Hans Gruber!) and Bonnie Bedelia.

“Its many imitators (and sequels) have never come close to matching the taut thrills of the definitive holiday action classic.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“DIE HARD is an action picture with a capital A. In fact, you might as well go ahead and capitalize the whole darn word.” (Orlando Sentinel)

“For all its moments of almost overwhelming cheese, DIE HARD is still the definitive action thriller.” (Total Film)

DIE HARD (John McTiernan, 1988 / 131 mins / 18A) New York City Detective John McClane has just arrived in Los Angeles to spend Christmas with his wife. Unfortunately, it is not going to be a Merry Christmas for everyone. A group of terrorists, led by Hans Gruber, is holding everyone in the Nakatomi Plaza building hostage – including Mrs. McClane! With no way of anyone getting in or out, it’s up to the street-smart (and barefoot) McClane to stop them all and save the day.

NYPD cop John McClane's plan to reconcile with his estranged wife is thrown for a serious loop when, minutes after he arrives at her office, the entire building is overtaken by a group of terrorists. With little help from the LAPD, wisecracking McClane sets out to single-handedly rescue the hostages and bring the bad guys down.
