Renegade commandos seize a major international airport to rescue a drug lord from justice. Detective McClane, there to meet his wife, must battle incompetent airport security, hard-headed, gung-ho anti-terrorist squads and a deadly winter snowstorm to break the terrorist's grip before his wife's plane runs out of fuel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the facts ma'am..... 23 Jan 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Once again, John McClane is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

This time he's waiting for his wife's plane to arrive at Washington's Dulles Airport when he uncovers a plot to sabotage the airport's landing system.

The criminals wish to free a drug baron being extradited to America for trial by holding the airport to ransom until they all safely escape on another plane.

However, if they'd known that Holly McClane was on a flight home to the very airport they were hijacking, they would have picked another day....

Round two of the Franchise, isn't a patch on the first movie, but it's still a bast of a movie. Harlin has a lot of flair when it comes to directing action scenes, but lets himself go a bit when it comes to more dramatic scenes.

and this is the films weak spot. Whenever we are located in the tower, the film loses it's edge, and Franz really overdoes his head cop role, and almost heads into pantomime villain mode.

But it's still a solid movie, Willis is really comfortable in his role, and the cast are also great.

The set pieces are great, and even 22 years later, the special effects and pyrotechnics really hold up.

So well worth seeing, a really great movie, but in my opinion, the weakest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Transfer, And Extras Too? 6 May 2008
By DL Productions UK TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
John McClane is back! This time it's an airport he has to save from destruction - and he's pretty much alone on his crusade. When he sees a gang of misfits breaking into the luggage area, John gets rightfully suspicious; but the Captain thinks it's just punks fooling around. How wrong is he?

With John facing an apocalypse if he doesn't restore control, and he's got few friends, and a lot of enemies including mercs and the lack of cooperation from the police.

Another fine film, thankfully remastered for Blu-Ray disk. The picture is beautiful and full framed, running at a staggering 30MB/s average, and the tru-HD sound at 20MB/s is absolutely amazing. It really does feel like you're in the cinema. There are two languages: French and Spanish, and the commentary from director Renny Harlin, which is quite interesting. The 1080p transfer is a big welcome, as it's smooth, and colourful, and a beauty to watch.

The extras are the best I've seen in a while: 4 deleted scenes which are pretty good, the making of, a featurette about the bad guys, a documentary: Die Harder: The Making of Die Hard 2 and some trailers. If you really like these Die Hard films, I think you're really going to be in your element with this Blu-Ray disk.

The film itself is a masterpiece, with Bruce Willis having some great lines and action sequences. Also some great lines from Mrs McClane (Bonnie Bedelia) on the plane. It's not the best Die Hard, but it's in order of 3,1,2,4 for me.

Definitely worth getting if you love the series, and to show off your high def kit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware 8 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVD artwork received was not as advertised. Instead of the original cover, Amazon shamelessly sent some new design, which is terrible.
Fortunately the movie itself is the true original version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic case... 5 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a classic case in the movie world - the follow-up being 'OK', but never really a patch on the original.

The first, and worst, sequel to Die Hard (until Die Hard 4, if you count that as a real Die Hard film), is terrorized by the same plot as the original. While waiting for his wife's plane to arrive at Dulles Airport (on Xmas Eve), McClane notices a few suspicious exchanges between a group of men amidst the busy yuletide passengers.

Before you know he is neck deep in trouble with an army of mercenaries, led by Colonel Stewart (William Sadler), who are hell-bent on setting free a corrupt South American General/Drug Baron (Franco Nero). There are more bad guys than before. And more suspension of disbelief is required.

There are so many plot holes and illogical moments that the film almost drowns in its own absurdity. But there is enough action and stunts to cancel it out and distract our attention. Though they not presented in a breathtaking or memorable way. It's all too generic and a bit mean-spirited. No audience nowadays would be satisfied with it so prepare yourself for 80's violence with lots of superfluous F-Bombs.

William Sadler and Franco Nero lack the callous efficiency of Alan Rickman. And a hero can only be measured by his nemesis. But most of the time McClane is just capping off nameless Mercs. How boring. Tho this should not be blamed on Sadler, he has a threatening and intense presence and as he has proven himself in movies like Trespass and Demon Knight. Too bad his character here is so badly written and underdeveloped. I'm sorry but blowing up 250 people off-screen to show how evil you are just won't cut it.

This movie without a doubt certified Renny Harlin as an action director. It was a tough, and huge, movie to pull off. Only he just did it off with no particular charm, it's very workman-like.
