Die Hard 2: Die Harder – Special Edition
On a snowy Christmas Eve in the nation's capital, a team of terrorists has seized a major international airport and now holds thousands of holiday travellers hostage. The terrorists, a renegade band of crack military commandos led by a murderous rogue officer (William Sadler), have come to rescue a drug lord from justice. They've prepared for every contingency except one: John McClane, an off-duty cop gripped with a feeling of deadly deja vu.
Bruce Willis returns as the heroic cop who battles not only terrorist but also an incompetent airport police chief (Dennis Franz), the hard-headed commander (John Amos) of the Army's anti-terrorist squad and deadly winter snowstorm. The runaways are littered with death and destruction, and McClane is in a race against time. his wife (Bonnie Bedelia) is trapped on one of the planes circling overhead, which is desperately low on fuel.
It's all out war, a heart-stopping, jet-propelled journey filled with excitement and terror. Fasten your seat belts!
