USA / English
"Die Harder. "John McClane is forced to battle mercenaries who seize control of an airport's communications and threaten to cause plane crashes if their demands are not met.
A Total Thrill Ride
Bruce Willis takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin', nearly outdoing
himself in one of the great actioneers of our time. DIE HARD 2 has
everything a true action fan could ever want: explosions, chases, plot
twists, suspense, drama and all that other good stuff.
Just two years after his last near-death adventure, John McClane (what
a great action hero name) battles bad guys who take over an airport's
communication system around the holidays. Unless their demands are met,
they will unceremoniously plummet planes to the ground one by one --
including one on which Mrs. McClane (Bonnie Bedelia) is a passenger. Of
course Johnny, he of wise-cracking ways, is the only one who can save
Like its predecessor, set almost entirely in a skyscraper, DIE HARD 2
makes the most out of its setting. McClane is as multi-purpose as can
be, chasing mercenaries through luggage conveyors, grasping onto
aircraft wings, running out onto the runway and, in a truly awesome
scene, ejecting from a plane a split second before it bursts into
flames. Throw in a snowmobile chase, the standard trip through the air
ducts and a legitimate, interesting motivation for the crooks and you
have a total thrill ride guaranteed to recharge your batteries.
Efforts like DIE HARD 2 won't win any major awards, but they'll do what
films are supposed to do: thrust us into another world and entertain
us. This is truly Willis and director Renny Harlin at their best.
