(Renny Harlin, US 1990, 124 min., 35mm)
“How can the same stuff happen to the same guy twice?” John McClane (Bruce Willis) is back after the hostage situation at Nakatomi Plaza. A year later, he is waiting at Dulles Airport for his wife’s flight from California so they can visit her family at Christmas. At the same time, corrupt Army Colonel Stuart (William Sadler) is planning to hijack a flight with an extradited drug lord, and plans to hold the circling planes above as hostages until he has escaped. Out of his city but not out of his element, McClane must track down the terrorists and eliminate them so he can save his wife and once again save the holiday. Last time, it blew you through the back wall of the theatre. This time, it will blow you sky high!
