Summary
  • Die hard: New York City detective John McClane is in Los Angeles to spend the holidays with his estranged wife Holly. But while McClane waits for Holly's office party to end, terrorists take control of the building. As their sinister leader, Hans Gruber, and his savage henchman round up hostages, McClane gets ready to blast a few rounds of his own and launch a one-man war - as only McClane can!
  • Die hard 2: die harder: It's Christmas Eve, and McClane is off-duty in the nation's capital. But a team of terrorists, in town to rescue a drug lord from justice, has taken over a major international airport, holding thousands of travelers hostage. Amidst a blinding blizzard, McClane must race against time to defeat the terrorists and their murderous leader. And if that's not a big enough lump of coal in his stocking, he's also contending with an inept airport police chief, the stubborn head of the army's anti-terrorist squad, and the knowledge that his wife is trapped in a plane desperately low on fuel, circling overhead!
  • Die hard with a vengeance: McClane is the personal target of the mysterious Simon, a terrorist determined to blow up the entire city if he doesn't get what he wants. Accompanied by an unwilling civilian, McClane careens wildly from one end of town to the other as he struggles to keep up with Simon's deadly game. It's a battle of wits between a psychopathic genium and a heroic cop in this thrill-a-minute adventure that grabs you and doesn't let go!
  • Live free or die hard: New York detective John McClane delivers old-school justice to a new breed of terrorists when a massive computer attack on the U.S. infrastructure threatens to shut down the entire country over Independence Day weekend
