Christmas is not a good time of year in the McClane family. Especially for John McClane, who always happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. But if it weren't for the heroics of this rugged, resourceful cop, many lives would be lost and megalomaniacal terrorists with various European accents would be having their evil way. In 1988, director John McTiernan and the phenomenal hit Die Hard introduced the world to maverick Sgt. John McClane (Bruce Willis) of the New York Police Department, and in the course of this film and two blockbuster sequels McClane was frantically saving lives, buildings, airports, schools, cities, and even his marriage from the threat of international terrorists, psychopaths, and cagey mercenaries. Now you can watch antihero McClane blast his way through all three movies. Witness his transition from a happy-go-lucky, slightly cranky cop to extremely burnt-out, partially alcoholic cop with a propensity to attract extreme violence and catastrophe. Yet the one thing that always overshadows his character flaws is his uncanny ability to spoil the schemes of stylish villains with slick names such as Hans Gruber (the nasty terrorist from the first film, played to perfection by Alan Rickman). Sit down, pop some corn, grab a bottle of Coca-Cola, and get ready to watch (in any order you please) the Die Hard Trilogy--a must for any action buff or fan of Bruce Willis, who owes his film career to the enduring appeal of these global box-office hits. --Jeremy Storey --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1988's "Die Hard" is where it all began. Hardened New York City cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) just wants to fly out to L.A. and spend Christmas with his kids and his estranged wife Holly (Bonny Bedelia). But when he goes to meet his wife at her work station at Nakatomi Plaza, things go awry. A group of Russian terrorists led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman in his best pre - Harry Potter role). They kill the office's head boss and hold everyone hostage - including Holly. McClane goes out on a limb with only his gun and his cunning to protect him. What ensues is nonstop, heartstopping action and some great moments of humor. Also in this film is Reginald VelJohnson, the star of the longrunning tv show "Family Matters".
McTernian was absent for 1990's "Die Hard 2: Die Harder". so Renny Harlin was tapped to direct. Willis, Bedelia and VelJohnson were the only original castmemebers for this one. In this one, McClane is at a Wshington D.C. airport waiting for Holly's plane to land. While waiting, he gets involved in a shootout that results in death and has an argument with an imcompetent police chief (Dennis Franz). Worse, he gets word that a group of terrorists are planning to take over the airport and free a drug lord. All this chaos throws McClane back into action. This causes flights to be delayed, and many planes are running low on fuel - including Holly's.Read more ›

"Die Hard" begins with hard - boiled police officer John McClane (Willis) arriving in Los Angeles to join his estranged wife Holly (Bonny Bedelia) and his kids for Christmas. He meets her at Nakatomi Plaza, a 40 - foot skyscraper, as well his wife's office building. They plan to go home as soon as the Christmas party ends. McClane is hoping that maybe he and Holly will even reconcile. However, these plans go awry when a group of Russian terrorists led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman in a showstealing role). Holding the building hostage and executing the boss, McClane knows that he has to spring into action and rescue his wives as well as thousands of other hostages. What entails is nonstop action: great shootouts, great lines (Yippe - ky - a, well you know the rest) and the powerful ending. Also included is "Family Matters"' Reginald Vel Johnson as Sgt. Al Powell, who brings comic relief as John's only friend outside the building. So buckle up, it's going to be an exciting ride.
McTernian was absent for 1990's "Die Hard 2: Die Harder". Director Renny Harlin was called in to hlm this blockbuster sequel. It takes place in Washington D.C., exactly one year at Dulles International Airport.Read more ›
