Die Hard still

On Christmas Eve, New York cop John McClane takes a trip to Los Angeles, where he wants to reconcile with his estranged wife at her office party. But his plans are interrupted by a gang of extremists that takes everyone present hostage. John will have to fight to rescue his wife and the others.

With Die Hard, John McTiernan delivered a milestone in the history of action cinema by rewriting and revitalizing the rules of the genre. He introduced a vulnerable and fallible protagonist, while his kinetic visual style, where the camera takes the role of the narrator, pointed to entirely new possibilities for creating cinematic tension.
