Die Hard 1Die Hard 2Die Hard with VengeanceLive Free or Die Hard


Considered as one of the best action movies ever made, and the prototype of a modern action film, Die Hard set a new standard for the genre. The movie series is about John McClane of NYPD and his mission against crime and terrorists.

Genre:
Action | Suspense


The Die Hard Series (Filmography):


The story is about John McClane (played by Bruce Willis in the entire series) and the difficult situations faced by a crime fighter. His action adventure starts from fighting the German terrorists in a high rise office building, to protecting the travelers in a major international airport invaded by a rebellious group of military commandos, then solving dangerous puzzle to save New York City from the hands of a revenging German terrorist he knocked down before, and the recent one where he had a battle with a group of internet hackers whose intention is to take down all the computer and technological structures (traffic control system, etc.) that supports the economy of the United States.

Every aspect in the movie is remarkable...the story, the acting, the direction, the production and of course, the impressive action scenes and pyrotechnics. Over-all it's really one of the best action movies in Hollywood.

The lead character- John McClane is one of the most distinguished action hero in Hollywood movies. Why? Because he fights without shoes, socks, or a regular shirt, armed only with a Beretta 92F pistol, and he is famous for this tagline: "Yippee-Ki-Yay Mo****Fu****".
