"The action is spectacular. Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"...zooms along like a roller coaster tanked with jet fuel. Rita Kempley, Washington Post

In this sequel to the classic action movie, renegade commandos seize a major international airport to rescue a drug lord from justice.

Based on the novel "58 Minutes" by Walter Wager.
Cast & Crew
An action-packed sequel to the 1989 film "Die Hard."| While former New York City cop John McClane, now a member of the Los Angeles Police Department, waits to pick up his wife in DC's Dulles Airport, gunmen suddenly commandeer the building. They're intent on rescuing a drug-dealing foreign despot who's being brought to the US to stand trial.| And once again McClane finds himself enmeshed in a terrorist plot that only he can prevent...
New York Times
"...Outrageous ambition, high-tech sophistication and sheer unbridled firepower....The heart and soul of the new film is Bruce Willis..."
ReelViews 9 of 10
It's rare that the sequel to a good movie lives up to expectations. Such is the case with Die Hard 2, the somewhat-muddled but still entertaining return of Bruce Willis' John McClane. Fortunately, the original Die Hard was good enough that there's room for the second installment to be enjoyable while still not matching the pace or possessing the flair of its predecessor...Die Hard 2 is, in the final analysis, a worthwhile action film, but it doesn't deliver nearly as much as the first Die Hard. Nevertheless, those who enjoyed spending a couple hours with John McClane atop the Los Angeles skyline will find much to savor about this outing. It's not as crisply directed, and the plot holes are easier to find, but Die Hard 2 is filled with the same sense of good-natured, wisecracking fun that infused the original. This is one sequel where deja vu doesn't necessarily mean a rehash of what went before.

DVD Verdict 9 of 10
In 1988, McClane had a bad night when he had to save the Nakatomi building and its hostages from certain destruction in the original Die Hard. This time around, McClane is on the defense as he battles a new band of terrorists in the land of politics and principles...I love the first Die Hard. I also loved Die Hard 2: Die Harder. These films contain such zippy energy that it's hard to believe that anyone other than the Pope and the Quakers wouldn't like it. Like the first film, Die Hard 2: Die Harder moves along at a speedy pace and always keeps the viewer involved...Die Hard 2: Die Harder is an extraordinarily good action movie...Suspension of disbelief is the key, and if you keep that in mind, you're going to end up having a blast with Die Hard 2: Die Harder.
