Summary
  • Die hard: New York City detective John McClane is in Los Angeles to spend the holidays with his estranged wife Holly. While McClane waits for Holly's office party to end, terrorists take control of the building. As their sinister leader, Hans Gruber, and his savage henchman round up hostages, McClane gets ready to blast a few rounds of his own and launch a one-man war
  • Die hard 2: John McClane is off-duty on Christmas Eve in the nation's capital when a team of terrorists, in town to rescue a drug lord from justice, has taken over a major international airport, holding thousands of travelers hostage. Amidst a blinding blizzard, McClane must race against time to defeat the terrorists and their murderous leader while also contending with an inept airport police chief, the stubborn head of the Army's anti-terrorist squad, and the knowledge that his wife is trapped in a plane desperately low on fuel, circling overhead
  • Die hard with a vengeance: New York cop John McClane is the personal target of the mysterious Simon, a terrorist determined to blow up the entire city if he doesn't get what he wants. Accompanied by an unwilling civilian, McClane careens wildly from one end of town to the other as he struggles to keep up with Simon's deadly game
  • Live free or die hard: NYPD Detective John McClane has faced some brutal terrorists in his career, but now, he's about to face what may be his most dangerous enemy yet. John, who occasionally does work for the United States Department of Homeland Security, receives a call to bring in a hacker named Matt Farrell, because there has been a breach in an FBI computer system. Farrell is one of the many hackers who are suspected in the attack. After John gets to Matt's apartment, a group of men show up and try to kill John and Matt. They barely escape with their lives. A group of terrorists led by Thomas Gabriel are systematically shutting down the United States computer infrastructure. Luckily, Matt knows enough about hacking to figure out how Gabriel is shutting down the computers. Gabriel plans to bring the country to its knees, but he doesn't count on John and Matt. Gabriel wants John and Matt out of the way. It becomes personal for John when an enraged Gabriel kidnaps his daughter Lucy. Gabriel may think he now has the upper hand on John, but he has no idea how far John is willing to go to rescue Lucy
  • A good day to die hard: John McClane, the heroic New York cop with a knack for being in the wrong place at the right time, is back, and his latest predicament takes him all the way to Russia to track down his estranged son, Jack, who has been imprisoned in Moscow. But the mission takes a deadly turn as father and son must join forces to thwart a nuclear weapons heist that could trigger World War III
