Synopsis


A Good Day to Die Hard
John McClane (Bruce Willis) and his estranged son Jack (Jai Courtney) team up to protect a government informant in Moscow, and thwart a major crime in Chernobyl in this sequel from director John Moore (Max Payne, Behind Enemy Lines). Russian politics are in tatters when veteran detective McClane shows up in the nation's capital, and learns that his son is working undercover to protect Komarov (Sebastian Koch) -- a notorious whistleblower who some powerful people would like to see silenced. Protecting Komarov won't be easy, even for the cop who's single-handedly defeated small armies of terrorists, and the sharp-shooting son he's never known. Meanwhile, when the fearless father and son catch wind of a deadly plot unfolding in Chernobyl, they face the fight of their lives in one of the most hostile landscapes known to man. Cole Hauser and Mary Elizabeth Winstead co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Live Free or Die Hard
An old-fashioned cop emerges to foil a high-tech attack on the country's computer infrastructure as Bruce Willis brings back one of the biggest action franchises in screen history. It's been over a decade since audiences last saw New York cop John McClane (Willis), but now, as the world's greatest criminal mastermind (Timothy Olyphant) attempts to cripple the entire country with an innovative act of technological terrorism, only one cop can insure that the integrity of the system stays intact. In this, the fourth installment of the long-running action series, Underworld director Len Wiseman picks up the torch formerly carried by directors John McTiernan and Renny Harlin to helm a script penned by Mark Bomback. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Die Hard
It's Christmas time in L.A., and there's an employee party in progress on the 30th floor of the Nakatomi Corporation building. The revelry comes to a violent end when the partygoers are taken hostage by a group of terrorists headed by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), who plan to steal the 600 million dollars locked in Nakatomi's high-tech safe. In truth, Gruber and his henchmen are only pretending to be politically motivated to throw the authorities off track; also in truth, Gruber has no intention of allowing anyone to get out of the building alive. Meanwhile, New York cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) has come to L.A. to visit his estranged wife, Holly (Bonnie Bedelia), who happens to be one of the hostages. Disregarding the orders of the authorities surrounding the building, McClane, who fears nothing (except heights), takes on the villains, armed with one handgun and plenty of chutzpah. Until Die Hard came along, Bruce Willis was merely that wisecracking guy on Moonlighting. After the film's profits started rolling in, Willis found himself one of the highest-paid and most sought-after leading men in Hollywood. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

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

Die Hard With a Vengeance
Bruce Willis returns as misfit cop John McClane in the third film in the Die Hard series. McClane has fallen on hard times; after moving to New York City and breaking up with his wife, he's developed a drinking problem and has been suspended from the NYPD. However, his past comes back to haunt him in the form of Simon (Jeremy Irons), a terrorist bomber who has been using McClane as his contact as he plants a series of bombs in public places and gives McClane inane "clues" to their whereabouts in the form of riddles and bizarre games. McClane soon discovers he's been involved in Simon's scheme as part of a personal grudge; while associated with an international terrorist group, Simon is also the brother of the man McClane threw off the side of a skyscraper several years back (in the original Die Hard). Now McClane, with the help of a Harlem shopkeeper named Zeus (Samuel L. Jackson), has to find out where Simon has planted the bombs, guess where he'll strike next, and try to find his base of operations before more bombs go off and thousands of people die. The supporting cast features Graham Greene and Colleen Camp; singer Sam Phillips made her acting debut as a member of Simon's terrorist group (Phillips never speaks, so as to not to reveal her Texas accent). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Essential Collection for DIE HARD Fans

    Let's be clear...Die Hard 1-3 form a loose trilogy when McClane still had hair and when Die Hard was at the peak of pop culture. Parts 4 and 5 however are a treat for fans to see a different take on John McClane in how he not only adapts to the internet/digital age but how he reconciles his lone wolf personality and his relationship with his kids. Live Free Or Die Hard is well made and quite scary in how it shows digital terrorists taking over the East Coast but A Good Day to Die Hard is more about John coming to terms with the fact that he's basically a superhero but is nothing without his unwavering sense of justice but more importantly his love for his family. Part 5 is definitely uneven and for many it's considered the worst of the series but this box set gave me the chance to revisit it and put bias aside and it turned out to have more depth than I expected. I'm under no illusion that the film is tongue and cheek and mostly and excuse to see McClane kick bad guy butt but it's also a kind of commentary on the whole series and how McClane really is, at the end of the day, a man looking to do right by his family. The last shot in the movie is a nice moment that is a heartfelt cap to the series if they decide not to make a part 6. Audio and Visual is strong throughout and this blu ray set is the best way to see the series on your home theater.

    Good set minus the unrated cut of #4 film

    Nice compact set, but if you are looking for remastered versions - this once again, isn't it. Also the much anticipated (and my reason for finally replacing my old DVDs of the 1st 4 Die Hard films) finally released disc of both theatrical and unrated versions of "Live Free or Die Hard" as advertised on this set's descriptions - isn't included. 20thCF still has the 2007 disc (theatrical only) of "Live Free or Die Hard" in this set. Still worth getting at a reasonable price, just contact Fox at foxconnect@orderassistance.com, and ask about getting the correct disc. You will be asked to provide an image of your receipt as proof of purchase. Aside from this glitch, its a good compact set that includes all 5 films.

    I was a bit worried the set would not come with the Unrated versions as advertised on the packaging. However, it appears Fox has fixed this and you can quickly identify the correct version by looking at the UPC on the back side. If there is a sticker covering the original UPC then you got the right one baby! I'm a fan of the first two films (Die Hard is the greatest action film of all time IMHO). While these transfers are just OK, it's the best we are gonna get until the studio decides to produce 4K versions (which I will buy!) You also get the Digital Copies for each film which is a big reason to pick up this set. You get the freedom to watch Die Hard on your mobile device or laptop or pop in a disc and watch on a big screen at home. I highly recommend!

    Die Hard is the movie that began and set the standard for action movies from the beginning! Great villains & acting, superbly cast and great directing the first 2 movies in this series are fantastic, all other action movies attempt to measure up to these. Although the latter entries into this group are somewhat less, they are still way better than many of the newest action movies that have appeared in theaters over the recent years. Every action movie fan should have this series in their collection and it's even sweeter if you can get em on sale. Plus the bonus is getting the digital copy for all of them included so you can watch them anywhere WITHOUT having to carry the physical copies! I love that!!!

    I bought this set specifically for the unrated version of the 4th die hard movie I am very very happy to have this in my collection as I was disappointed in the fact that the original release only had the theatrical cut the unrated cut of this movie is so much better I can't even tell you. Just so you know the other disks in the set are just repacks of the original releases which means they have not been remastered they are exactly the same picture and sound as the original releases I do not know whether or not that means anything to you if you already have these releases the only reason to really buy this is for the unrated 4th movie

    I mean, then you're just going to buy the collection because it's Die Hard. That's it. Sure, the last one was pretty much fireplace material, (the blue ray itself works great when used for target practice) but the other four (including the over the top madness of the fourth one) are pretty fantastic. That said, I don't know if it was my system (which it probably wasn't) but when I saw the first movie, there was a lag in the audio of about 5 frames. Probably negligible for most, but it sucked big time for me. Aside from that, if you're buying this, you already know how good they are. No need to have read this far. Yippie-Ka-Yay all.

    I bought the Blue-ray version of this 5 movie collection first because it was not expensive, and then I found out that the DVD set is only about half the price. So I decide to buy the DVD set as well and do a direct comparison of the two. It appears that FOX does not re-master the movies so the picture quality is pretty much the same for both blue-ray and DVD. Thus I conclude that the DVD set is good enough if you want to enjoy these movies. The blue-ray version does not bring anything extra with your $$.

    This series is one of the original action genre standards that current films try to duplicate because of the great success they have had with audiences. Although the latter films in this series don't quite measure up to the first 2-3 they are still fun to watch. If you keep an eye out you can catch this particular compilation on sale for less than $20 which is a real bargain! Plus you get the digital versions so you can watch any where, any time and you don't have to take your Blu-ray discs with you. I don't think the other Die Hard compilation collection set includes the HD copies.
