Die Hard

Die Hard
  • 1988
  • US
  • 2h 11min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John McTiernan
  • Cast: Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Alexander Godunov

Willis plays a cop who attends a tower block Christmas party with his estranged spouse. The building is raided by terrorists, so it's left to Willis to bump off the baddies and save the hostages while the police and FBI languish ineptly on the sidelines. Unbearably tense actioner that gets good mileage out of yawning lift-shafts and flying bullets, while Willis is convincing as an ordinary guy trying to cope with it all. Watch out for Brit Rickman as a villain with a sense of humour.
