Brief Synopsis – John McClane must try and stop a terrorist from wrecking havoc in NYC.

My Take on it – I remember when this movie came out and how excited I was to see another film in the franchise.

It definitely doesn’t disappoint.

We are once again given all of the right ingredients for a successful Die Hard film!

This time we also get the added bonus of having lots of great dialogue between Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson as his (sorta) partner.

The script is really witty and I love the dialogue here both in the humorous situations and in the serious ones.

As with every Great Die Hard film, this one has lots of twists and turns around every corner that help make this so much fun to watch.

Bottom Line – Great addition to the franchise. Witty script and dialogue help make this a fun movie to watch.  The pairing of Willis and Jackson works so well. Typical twists and turns for the series that make this quite enjoyable. Highly Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Eventhough this film’s domestic box office is only about 100 million dollars, its massive international box office (which is about 266 million dollars) makes this film the “highest worldwide box office winner of 1995”. This movie is perhaps one of the few movies (may be the only one) that could manage to become the “biggest worldwide box office winner of the year” when its domestic box office was not even in the top 5. (From IMDB)

Rating – Oscar Worthy (no change from original review)
