Synopsis


Die Hard 2
"Another basement, another elevator...how can the same thing happen to the same guy twice?" asks John McClane (Bruce Willis), in what is doubtless the key question of this film. A year after foiling the terrorist takeover of a high-rise office building in the first movie, McClane is waiting to pick up his wife, Holly (Bonnie Bedelia), at Dulles International Airport just outside Washington, D.C., on Christmas Eve. Scheduled to arrive the same evening is Ramon Esperanza (Franco Nero), a South American political figure who is being brought to the United States to stand trial for his role in a drug-smuggling ring. However, a group of terrorists, led by renegade American military officer Col. Stuart (William Sadler), take control of the airport, scuttling radio transmissions and placing their own men in the control tower. Stuart and his men ensure that Esperanza's plane lands safely, and then demand that Stuart and his men be given a fully-fueled 747 and free passage wherever they choose to go. Otherwise, they will guide the many circling jets waiting for landing instructions into definite crash landings, killing the many passengers on board. Not willing to stand aside as terrorists once again threaten his wife's life, the wise-cracking McClane once again leaps into action to foil Stuart's plans and bring the passenger jets safely to the ground. William Atherton, John Amos, Dennis Franz, and John Leguizamo highlight the supporting cast. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Lame Sequel

    Some critics praised 'Die Hard 2' as being better than the first film, others simply gave it four stars heralding it as top-notch entertainment. This is why I often dislike the taste of many professional critics as I personally found this film to be way overblown and cheesy, and not in a good way. Nowhere near as good as the original. This dvd however, should make fans of this relatively poor film happy.

    I tend to disagree with the previous reviewer. Although not as good as the first film, I think this film still holds it's own and anyone who is a fan of the serious would love to own this on blu-ray. I bought it with the complete collection.

    For having the exact same premise as the first movie this one manages to hold it's own while also having possibly the best Yippie-Kai-Yay of not just the original three, but of all five movies

    Some may say that this one is better than the first one, but I wouldn't go that far. This one is probably the worst one in the series. But don't get me wrong I still liked it and I have it in my collection.

    I wouldn't recommend buying this movie on standard dvd let alone Blue-Ray. A critical success, 'Die-Hard 2' is really a piece of junk film that does nothing but disgrace the first film.

    This is a solid and well done sequel. Most sequels fall flat on their face and can't capture the magic as the original but this movie came as close as could.
