Die Hard 2

( 6 )

Overview

"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

Overview

"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.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
It's difficult to take any movie subtitled Die Harder seriously. Luckily, the this sequel to 1988's Die Hard seems slyly aware of its own preposterousness and plays like one great, big, tongue-in-cheek smirkfest. Much like a James Bond film, Die Hard 2 is full of ridiculous plot contrivances, logic bending and superhuman stunts, but its bravado forces you to say, "who cares about all that." It's so far outside of the realm of reality that it defies you to make a critical remark, even in regards to the huge amount of carnage on display. Of course, the perfect ringleader for all the jolly destruction is Bruce Willis, the man who has built a career largely on his ability to look good while suffering great physical hardships. He's the perfect "Iron Everyman" for the rough and tumble Die Hard series. In the early 1990s, Willis was hardly doing the sort of business expected of a major movie star; Die Hard 2 would be his only major success until 1994, when the actor re-asserted himself with his supporting role in Pulp Fiction.

    You Were Thinking What Here?

    It's a Renny Harlin film. Three word translations: run like hell. See different movie. Bemoan wasted dialogue. Do not bother. Long Kiss Goodnight. In all seriousness, the craptacularity of Die Hard 2 has a lot to do with its clapped out similarities to the first Die Hard. Skip straight to the third movie in the Die Hard Installment (which was saved by Sam Jackson and the puzzles -- Jeremy Irons is no Alan Rickman) and hope that Live Free or Die Hard (love that Red State title!) obtained a restraining order ordering Harlin to stay 1,000 miles away from any aspect of the movie at all times.
