Die Hard Reviews
Good movie, what can I say. They show this movie a million times on TV. Ace.
Willis plays New York detective John McClane who visits his estranged wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) at Christmas time at her place of employment Nakatomi Plaza, a skyscraper HQ for the Nakatomi Corporation.
Whilst visiting the building just happens to come under attack by a ruthless gang of terrorists led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman).
Rickman is excellent as the villain Gruber. I was reminded of his excellence by seeing an image of him falling to his death from the 30th floor of the building a few days ago. An iconic Christmas moment!
Rickman would revel his villainous role and go onto similar as The Sheriff Of Nottingham in 1991s Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves.
It is Willis who steals the movie with his never say die attitude whilst half undressed. Barefoot and vested. Even he remarks it is better than being caught with your pants down.
Whatever happened to Bonnie Bedelia. I think she starred in 1990s Die Hard 2 and that's it?
The skyscraper holds millions of dollars in bonds in its vault hence the thieving terrorist angle.
Willis has a full head of his own hair. It was 1988!
And people find this debatable, but I agree with those saying that "Die Hard" is a Christmas film.
