Probably the least entertaining of the first three Die Hard films, and the most uneven, but still a pretty good action movie that doesn’t play too easily into old conventions. Booted-out, separated John McClane () is back again, and this time he has to fight a German terrorist (Jeremy Irons) who is out for revenge on the death of his brother (Alan Rickman from the first Die Hard). Or is he? This and many other questions abound as Willis and happenstance companion Samuel L. Jackson run around trying to save New York from Irons’ trigger-happy fingers.  Supporting characters played by and  are a real highlight, though Bonnie Bedelia is sorely missing.
