Zeus: So what's up with this L.A. thing? You famous or something?
John McClane: Yeah, for about five minutes.
Zeus: Don't tell me. Rodney King, right?
John McClane: Fuck you.
He's back, John McClane is back, and he has some help this time, mister Samuel L. Jackson, who is Zeus, the racist motherfucker who works alongside McClane to stop a bomber, who is played by Jeremy Irons, known as Simon [says] in the film.
John McClane: Good morning.
Zeus: You having a nice day, sir? You feeling all right? Not to get too personal, but a white man standing in the middle of Harlem wearing a sign that says "I hate negros" has either got some serious personal issues, or not all his dogs are barking.
Zeus: Hey! I'm talking to you! Now you've got about ten seconds before those guys see you, and when they do they will kill you, you understand? You are about to have a very bad day.
John McClane: Tell me about it.
While this is the most underrated of the Die Hard franchise, this is my personal favorite. So many things make this film great.
Watching the wonderful chemistry between Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis is an absolute joy to watch. All of the racism lines had me laughing for hours on.
John McClane: I'll put my foot up your ass, you dumb, mother...
Zeus: Say it! Say it!
John McClane: What?
Zeus: You were gonna call me a negro, weren't you?
John McClane: No I wasn't!
Zeus: Yes you were! What were you gonna call me?
John McClane: Asshole! How's that, asshole!
Hans Gruber is still technically my favorite villain in the franchise, but his brother Simon Gruber is still pretty damn badass. He kills way more civilians and has a much better reason for what he does.
An absolute blast.
Chief Cobb: Have you been drinking, McClane?
John McClane: No, not since this morning.
