"[Die Hard] changed the grammar of action movies...it's a near-perfect example of its form." – Tom Breihan, The AV Club
New York cop and all-around badass John McClane (Bruce Willis) arrives in LA to reconcile with his estranged wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia) at her employer’s Christmas Eve party. Just after McClane arrives at the Nakatomi Corporation building, a group of 13 terrorists, led by German anarchist Hans Gruber (the late Alan Rickman in his first feature film role), violently take over the festivities in order to steal $640 million. Only McClane eludes capture and it’s up to him to stop the bad guys in one of the best Christmas movies of all time.
