Factual error: When McClane and Zeus take the little hatchback from the bank location, they run up the ramp by the Brooklyn Bridge and McClane looks to see the dump trucks aren't on the bridge. Zeus then spots them on FDR Drive and they speed off down the ramp to FDR Drive. The ramp they were on doesn't connect to the ramp they took to give chase. It only heads towards City Hall or over the bridge. They'd have to take the Civic Center ramp, do a u-turn under the Brooklyn Bridge approach then head back up the ramp to FDR Drive.
9.5/10.A sequel that's on equal footing with its predecessor.Forget Die Hard 2 as that concept of the hero confined to a plane works better with other movies.Bruce Willis again delivers brilliantly as Det John McClane going against one great villain in Jeremy Irons.Here you can again feel your adrenaline rushing as you watch him race around New York trying to foil the villain's plans.I actually enjoyed Samuel L.Jackson here, most of his stuff I don;t watch.But here there's excellent chemistry between Willis and Jackson.
My favorite "Die Hard' film. The action scenes are tense, Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson have great chemistry, and Jeremy Irons' Simon Gruber is every bit as great of a villain as Alan Rickman's Hans Gruber.
Trivia: In the German version of the first 'Die Hard' movie, the terrorists were changed into radical Irish because the dubbing producers didn't want to have German terrorists (see 'Die Hard' Trivia). In the German dubbing of this movie, however, they have decided to adapt the original background after all, and the late terrorist leader is called by his original name, Hans Gruber.
Question: In the scene where Simon and his men overpower Felix Little of the Federal Reserve and continue to the elevator, what are the German lines being spoken by Simon Gruber? It sounds like "Danke well" when he pushes the drugged Mr. Little to the floor, and when he is in the elevator removing his tie his line sounds like "Ich biete". If someone knows the German words being spoken in these lines, your input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
