Die Hard 2 (1990) Film Review


Die Harder. Fabulous. So, John McClane (Bruce Willis) is picking his wife up from Washing Airport where they are visiting her parents. But there is also a really dodgy terrorist being flown in for some reason. And it is the middle of the Christmas rush (Christmas Eve to be exact). Of course, there are several cop-like authority figures who don’t trust McClane’s instincts and end up looking like fools. And then the terrorists start doing awesome and awful things, like making a whole plane crash-land on purpose. Planes are left circling, waiting to land, and fuel is running out. And there is a wise old African-American man who can solve many of their problems, if only someone would listen.

Yup, still wonderful. Action galore, massive explosions, running and desperation and that great dialogue. Just… wonderful. And Holly still gets to be a bit kick-arse, so that’s nice. Oh, and look out for a young John Leguizamo and Robert Patrick amongst the cast. Nice.
