Bruce Willis in his usual role meets Samuel L. Jackson, a Harlem shopkeeper who saves Willis' rear-end and Jeremy Irons as a terrorist leader who put our two guys through a game of " Simon Says" as a distraction to rob the New York Federal Reserve Bank, the repository of the second most gold bullion in the USA, Fort Knox, of course being the first.
If you are looking for a movie that is filled with hard hitting action, Die Hard is it.
If you've seen the other Die Hard movies, you have to watch this one.
Recommended for Die Hard fans and fans of Bruce Willis.
Although it still follows the Die Hard formula - and how could it not? - of McClane versus formidable obstacles, Die Hard 3 wisely avoids the Christmas Crises scenarios from the first two films. Gone also (although the movie never really explains why) is Bonnie Bedelia's Holly, although she is mentioned in several scenes. Apparently McClane never adjusted to life in Los Angeles and returned to his job in the New York Police Department.
So when a bomb goes off at a Bonwit Teller store in Manhattan, it is providential for the Big Apple that McClane is a lieutenant in New York's Finest, albeit a depressed and beer-swilling lieutenant. Providential because we know that when arch-villain "Simon" (Jeremy Irons) demands that McClane participate in a potentially deadly version of the game "Simon Says," our Everyman hero will rise to the occasion and thwart Simon's deadly scheme.
As in the first Die Hard film, McTiernan pairs McClane with an interesting partner. Where in the 1988 flick Willis was helped by Reginald Veljohnson (better known as Carl from Family Matters), in Die Hard with a Vengeance his charismatic and reluctant partner is played by Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Star Wars Episodes I and II). Their "unlikely buddies" routine is energetic and witty, and Jackson plays his Harlem store owner character with a mixture of biting wit, bewilderment, and even dignity.Read more ›
The best thing that can be said about this movie is that it would have worked even if it was not a "Die Hard" movie. The idea that John McClane is once again on the outs with his wife (who never appears in the film) is getting stale and the idea that he is being targeted by this film's mysterious villain simply named Simon (Jeremy Irons) could just as easily have a different explanation than one that ties this film back to the original. In fact, what makes this third one a solid action film is that it does indeed go back to the original for two of its strongest elements. The first is the idea that the crime is a fairly complex robbery dressed up with a lot of distractions.Read more ›
For those who don't know, this film is about a madman who is threatening to blow up public places in New York unless Willis and Jackson are able to perform certain tasks. The action is outstanding, the car chases are breath taking, and the acting is awesome. Bruce Willis is hillarious with his sarcastic and short tempered humor.
This new and improved special edition of "Die Hard 3" is more than I hoped for. The picture quality is crystal clear. In fact, there are some scenes where the picture is TOO clear! I forgot how beaten up and bruised Bruce Willis gets in this movie!
For those who have DVD players who can play DTS will also enjoy the new sound transfer. It was ten times louder and thrilling with the new DTS analog, which makes the movie even better. The crashes and gun shots sound a lot more better and louder.
I was very pleased with this new remastered version of "Die Hard 3". I will have to watch the other two in the box set to see if they are just as good. I highly recommend this DVD, or box set to anyone who loves "Die Hard".
