4.0 out of 5 stars Just the facts ma'am.....
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Die Harder and Harder, 28 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This film really lives up to the first ones standard. I can watch this film over and over again I just don't get bored of it. Bruce Willis really brings John McClanes character out in his second film making it a great action movie. Also the Terrorists were just as venomous as in the first film showing that the "Die Hards" never lose their sadistic touch making the conflict between good and evil an unmissable event. But I think what makes this film so amazing is that our action hero is inflicted with pain and that he isn't invinsible which keeps us on the edge of our seat rather than yawning at gunshots.

4.0 out of 5 stars a smart and sophisticated thriller, 24 Aug 2008
By 
In the sequel to Die Hard, John McClane is in trouble again when a group of criminals take control of an airport to bring an evil General safely and discreetly into the country.

After the success of the first, a sequel was inevitable and the action, the claustrophobia and most importantly, John McClane were all still there.

Bruce Willis (The Sixth Sense) has made John McClane into the ultimate male action hero, with a slick and sarcastic attitude towards life, and most importantly bad guys, and improvising a lot of his own work has made McClane an icon in the genre.

The support cast are also on top form, and provide plenty of tension to justify the scenarios, not to mention the extra humour they bring to the plot.

Though no sequel will ever top the first Die Hard, which will be one of the best action thrillers ever made, Die Hard 2 has a sensible and action orientated plot to keep it's feet on the ground and not go overboard, and is the ultimate sequel any fan could have wanted.

The plot is fast and intelligent, justifying the genre exceptionally well. Perhaps there was one too many action sequences, which does down step the realism, but nonetheless they are all pin point accurate on the
entertainment factor.

As with the first, the plot is driven by an ultimate deadly scenario, and using claustrophobia do we get a sense of the situation. The first was set around Nakatomi Towers, and this sequel is focused around an airport.

Keeping within limits adds to the intense and dramatic scenario.
The direction is well established to gain the ultimate action feel, and as McClane utters the ultimate catchphrase, do we see the best part of the entire film.

The ending to Die Hard 2 is far less cheesy than the ending to its predecessor which was a relief, and you will be left smiling having seen one of the best action sequels ever made.

8.5/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as lovingly packaged..., 20 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The original Die Hard Special Edition DVD release was a lavish triple folding case with an 8-page booklet and absolutely hours and hours of amazing Bonus features... and the animated menu screens were really well thought out. I was very impressed with it, which is why I feel a bit short-changed by Die Hard 2 Special Edition. Gone is the triple fold case (but you do get the nice thick cardboard/shiny print sleeve this time too!), the booklet and the comprehensive Bonus features (there isn't any multi-angle shots this time or the brilliant 'Cutting room' where you edit your own scene) , but they have made an effort to continue with the animated menu screen sequences!

Disc One: Movie
Audio commentary with the director.
Re-mastered DTS sound (English)
Subtitle languages - Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Swedish, English.

Disc Two: Bonus material
2 Making of Die Hard 2 featurettes
4 Deleted scenes
Renny Harlin interview
Villain's profile featurette
2 visual effects breakdown sequences
3 visual effects side by side comparisons
2 Behind-the-scenes clips
Storyboard featurette
4 trailers

Although I do enjoy DH2, it just can't live up to the original movie and the DVD release just doesn't feel as lovingly put together this time round either.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ho hum sequel, 22 Sep 2007
Die Hard is probably the best action film ever made.
Die Hard 2 "Die harder" is a run of the mill sequel cash in. The surviving cast of the first film are brought back for no purpose other than that they were in the first film. Present are Bonnie Bedelia as Holly McClane, Reginald Veljohnson as the nice over weight cop and William Atherton as the slimy reporter, all to no affect at all. They are present only because this is a sequel, and sit through the movie with almost nothing to do.
The humor and the small character touches which made the original film so enjoyable are completely absent.
There are numerous action sequences, all of which are slow, predictable and dull by the comparison to the first film.
This is simply a by the numbers, run of the mill action film with none of the flair which made the original Die Hard so enjoyable.
If you thought that Die Hard was one of the best action films then avoid this poor sequel at all costs.
