Episode Guide

Die Hard

New York City cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) rides to the rescue when arch criminal Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) and his gang hold a group of executives (including McClane's wife) hostage in a tower block as Christmas approaches.

Reginald Veljohnson ably supports as Sgt Al Powell, McClane's eyes and ears on the ground, who helps him out despite orders from above.

But John McTiernan's seminal action thriller belongs to the vest-clad Willis, who has the right moves as well as the right quip for every tight spot.
