Tagline: Think fast. Look alive. Die hard.

Plot: Superhero cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) returns in DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE. Freshly expelled from the NYPD, McClane encounters a number of threatening phone calls from a terrorist calling himself Simon (Jeremy Irons). Simon tests McClane’s wits, and allows him the chance to stop each bomb by solving a riddle. In addition to using his previously learned anti-terrorism tactics (DIE HARD, DIE HARD 2) , McClane enlists an angry store clerk, Zeus (Samuel L. Jackson) to decipher Simon’s tricky enigmas.

DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE finds director John McTiernan returning to the creative helm of the series he began in 1987(Renny Harlin directed DIE HARD 2). For the third film in the detonative series, McTiernan creates a story line which floats from psycho terror to sonic action to interracial comedy relief. The acting is something to be marveled at as well. Bruce Willis miraculously evokes sympathy whilst playing the angry police man and Jeremy Irons’ performance as the villainous Simon is reminiscent of an Eastern European James Bond megalomaniac. Samuel L. Jackson’s is also worth mentioning as he gives an angry discourse in racism and then pops off one liners, both ice cold and slick.
