Facing Christmas 3,000 miles from his estranged wife and two children, New York policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) flies to Los Angeles bearing presents and hoping to patch up his marriage. Stylish and cool Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) is in Los Angeles as well for the holiday season, but he's not there to give out presents. He's there to take: more than $600 million in negotiable bearer bonds from the multinational Nakatomi Corporation, where McClane's wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) is an executive. When the takeover becomes hostile, it's up to John McClane to take on the terrorists with all the grit and determination he can muster--but not without a sense of humor.




  • A brutal, yet beautiful action movie.

    What can I say, the plot was awesome, the characters were awesome, the acting was awesome, the cast were awesome, the special effects were awesome, the cinematography was awesome. An awesome movie.

  • 5star film 3star transfer

    By fire&ice
    This is one of the best action movies ever mad and. A fair to say a classic. That said the HD transfer (not sure if a 4K version is any better) is looking old soft, grainy and almost VHS in quality. I would say not as good as DVD. So definitely not as good a quality as it should be as HD. My Laurence of Arabia looks far superior to this. Fox need to clean this classic up and do a quality remaster. Preferably giving us that bought this version a free upgrade. Come on FOX this is a classic and deserves it - as do we!

  • Action movie...defined.

    By Sarginator
    Kotatsu Neku (below), sums this film up perfectly. I could not have put it any better, other than to say if people under the age of about 30 want to see what a proper made action movie is, then they need to watch this one.

  • just good old film.

    By republic of sb.
    thinking: after going through, who had more shared experience? main actor and his wife vs. main actor and the main police man. simple.
  • Fave Christmas movie ever!

    By Manda Robinson
    Seriously, not only do I watch this every Christmas, I watch it in between too. In fact, I may just rent it again now :-) It's one of the best action movies ever made for a variety of reasons; acting, direction, villain, story, characters, action and banter.
