Gordon left the meeting shortly after it had begun, telling Stuart to just go and write the script. Stuart finished his first draft five-and-a-half weeks later.

Stuart credits Levin as instrumental in helping him to understand Nothing Lasts Forever. However, the novel is told entirely from Leland's perspective; events he is not present for are not detailed.

Gruber is a terrorist using naive, young male and female guerilla soldiers to rob the building because of Klaxon's support for a dictatorial government.

This made their motivations less clear and Leland more conflicted about killing them, especially the women. Leland is written as an experienced older man working as a high-powered security consultant.

Stuart created new material for scenes when McClane is not present. This allowed him to expand upon or introduce characters: Powell is given a wife and children, allowing him to relate more closely to McClane; Argyle—whose novel counterpart disappears early in the story—is present throughout the script, supporting McClane by broadcasting rap music over the terrorists' radios.

Among the script's original characters is the unscrupulous journalist Richard Thornburg. He also made friends with a construction superintendent at the under-construction Fox Plaza in Los Angeles, giving him access to the building to gain ideas on how to lay out the characters and scenes.

His finished screenplay was delivered on a Friday in June It was greenlit by Saturday, in part because 20th Century Fox needed a big summer film for Though the main character names differed, because Die Hard was based on the novel sequel to The Detective film, the studio was contractually obligated to offer Frank Sinatra the role; Sinatra, who was 70 at the time, declined.

Schwarzenegger wanted to move away from action films and into comedy and turned down the role to star in the comedy Twins. Though not the producers' first choice, he declined the role because of his contractual obligations to Moonlighting.

However, when Shepherd became pregnant, the show's production was shuttered for eleven weeks, giving Willis enough time to take the role. McTiernan's then-girlfriend happened to be sitting on a plane next to a representative of CinemaScore.

She asked them to provide data analysis to show if Willis could work as the star. The resulting data showed that casting Willis would not have a negative impact; his participation was confirmed two weeks later.

This defied the Hollywood hierarchy by giving Willis a comparable salary to more successful actors like Dustin Hoffman , Warren Beatty , and Robert Redford.

He said, "even though he's a hero, he is just a regular guy. He's an ordinary guy who's been thrown into extraordinary circumstances Rickman was already in his early 40s as he made his screen debut as Hans Gruber.

He was cast by Silver, who had seen him perform in a Broadway version of Les Liaisons Dangereuses , playing the villainous Vicomte de Valmont.

His role was shot in chronological order over three weeks. McTiernan had wanted the character to be suave like actor Cary Grant , but Bochner conceived of the character's motivations coming from cocaine use and insecurity.

McTiernan hated the performance initially until he noticed Gordon and Silver were entertained by Bochner's antics.

Screenwriter Steven E. He said, "If [Gruber] had not planned the robbery and put it together, [McClane] would have just gone to the party and reconciled or not with his wife.

You should sometimes think about looking at your movie through the point of view of the villain who is really driving the narrative.

The script continued to undergo changes up to and during filming. Several subplots and character beats were created because during early filming Willis was still working simultaneously on Moonlighting.

He would film the show for up to ten hours and then work on Die Hard at night. As this situation was expected to continue for at least a further week, McTiernan opted to give Willis time off to rest and tasked De Souza with adding new scenes they could film in the interim.

These included scenes with Holly's housekeeper, an introductory scene for Thornburg, and more moments between Powell and his fellow officers.

The scene where Holly confronts Gruber in the wake of Takagi's death was also added during this time. Silver wanted a scene between McClane and Gruber before the film's denouement.

De Souza could not think of an idea that would allow the pair to meet without one killing the other.

Between takes, De Souza heard Rickman affecting an American accent to a crew member; he realized that an accent would let Gruber disguise himself when he met McClane.

That scene had not yet been filmed, and it was reworked to conceal Gruber's identity from McClane. In Stuart's original script, Die Hard took place over three days.

He did not want to use terrorists as the villains, as he considered them to be "too mean". McTiernan avoided focusing on the terrorists' politics in favor of making them thieves driven by monetary pursuits; he felt this would make it more suitable summer entertainment.

McClane's character was not fully realized until almost halfway through production. McTiernan and Willis had determined that McClane is a man who does not like himself much but is doing the best he can in a bad situation.

There was a debate over whether to use "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker" or "yippee-ti-yay, motherfucker". Principal photography began in November The under construction Fox Plaza offered both; only four or five stories were occupied at the time.

Cinematographer Jan de Bont said the building's design was distinct, making it a character on its own. Clear views of the building were available from a distance, enabling establishing shots as McClane approaches it.

Because Die Hard was filmed on location, the surrounding city could be seen from within the building, enhancing the realism. Very little of the film was storyboarded beforehand.

De Bont said that intricate storyboarding made his job redundant. Instead, he and McTiernan would discuss that day's filming in detail, and the feeling or sensation they wanted to portray.

De Bont was more concerned with creating a dramatic rather than an attractive shot; he cited the use of real flares in the film that generated unpredictable smoke and sometimes obscured the image.

He came straight from filming Moonlighting to shoot one of his most pivotal scenes, where McClane leaps from a rooftop as it explodes behind him, saved only by a length of hosepipe.

He was used to acting against another actor, but in Die Hard he is alone in many of his scenes, talking to himself or others via radio.

In contrast to their on-screen dynamics, Bedelia and VelJohnson spent most of their time between scenes with Rickman.

The film's ending had not been finalized when filming began. In the finished film, Theo retrieves an ambulance from the truck the terrorists arrived in to use as an escape vehicle.

As this was a late decision, the truck the terrorists are shown arriving in was too small to hold an ambulance. An additional scene, showing the terrorists synchronizing their TAG Heuer watches, also showed the truck was empty; this scene had to be deleted.

This led to other necessary changes. As scripted, McClane realizes that the American hostage he encounters is Gruber because of the distinctive TAG Heuer watch he had seen on the other terrorists; the watches were no longer an established plot point.

De'voreaux actually punched Gilyard during the scene, which was added in only in the last 10 days of filming. Depending on the actors' performances, some characters were kept in the film longer and others killed off sooner.

After 30 minutes, a team of stuntmen arrived to help them escape via the roof hatch and crossover to another elevator parked next to it.

He recruited Frank J. Urioste and John F. Link to edit scenes together while in mid-motion. This was contrary to the mainstream style of editing used at the time.

He offered to misuse German composer Richard Wagner 's music instead of tarnishing that of Beethoven. Let It Snow! When Kamen first saw Die Hard , it was largely incomplete and he was unimpressed.

Even so, he admitted there were tracks from his Die Hard score that he liked. McTiernan did not like a Kamen piece created for the final scene where Karl emerges from the building to kill McClane.

He decided to use a temporary track that was already in place; a piece of unused score from composer James Horner 's work for Aliens ; cues are also used from the action film Man on Fire.

It would go on to be considered a Christmas classic, in part because of its use in the film. The perception of film stunts had changed shortly before production of Die Hard began following an accident on the set of the Twilight Zone: The Movie that had killed several actors.

A push was made to prioritize a film's crew over the value of the film itself. The stunt involved a foot leap from a five-story parking garage ledge onto an airbag as a foot wall of flame exploded behind him; he considered it to be one of his toughest stunts.

The explosive force pushed him towards the edge of the airbag; the crew was concerned he had died. A set was used for the following scene where McClane shoots out a window to re-enter the building.

It was shot approximately halfway into the filming schedule so that all involved had gained more stunt experience. The window was made of fragile sugar glass that took two hours to set up; there were only a few takes for this reason.

A team of stuntmen positioned below the window dragged the hosepipe and pulled Willis towards the edge. Stuntmen were preferred over a hoist, as they could better control Willis' fall if he went over the edge.

Frank Urioste kept the scene when he worked on the editing. For Gruber's fall from Nakatomi Plaza, Rickman was dropped between 20 feet 6.

Rickman had to fall backward onto the bag, something even stuntmen avoid to control their fall. He was let go early to elicit a genuine look of surprise.

McTiernan said, "there's no way he could fake that". Capturing the stunt was difficult. Rickman was dropped at a rate of 32 feet 9.

Despite these innovations, the camera struggled to keep Rickman entirely in focus during his 1. Months of negotiations took place before permission was given to drive a SWAT vehicle up the steps of Fox Plaza as the script required.

A railing knocked over during shooting was never replaced. In the scene where McClane throws C4 down the elevator shaft to stop the assault, the effects team blew out every window on one floor or the building; they were unsure what was going to happen until they did the stunt.

It took three attempts above Fox Plaza, and nine camera crews filming with 24 different cameras. Mortar-like devices filled with propane were used for explosions.

They took ten minutes to install and offered a six-second burst of flame. To prevent the in-building locations looking similar because of the standard fluorescent office lighting, De Bont concealed small film lights in high locations.

He controlled these to create more dynamic and dramatic lighting. He placed fluorescent tubes on the floor in one scene to indicate they had not been installed; this gave him the opportunity to use unusual light positioning.

The Nakatomi Building's 30th floor—where the hostages are held—was one of the few sets. De Govia's reasoning was that it reflected the trend at the time of Japanese corporations buying up American corporate assets.

An early design for the Nakatomi logo was too reminiscent of a swastika ; the final design is closer to a Samurai warrior's helmet. A foot-long matte painting provided the city backdrop as viewed from inside the building's 30th floor.

It featured animated lights and other lighting techniques to present both moving traffic, daytime and nighttime. The summer of was expected to be dominated by action and comedy films; [28] however, a broader range of films were released that year.

More films targeted older audiences rather than teenagers, a reflection of the increasing age of the average audience member.

Their collective potential was significant enough for George Lucas —who had dominated May in previous years with Star Wars and Indiana Jones films—to move his film Willow to avoid the competition.

Industry executives also had high expectations for the romantic comedy Coming to America and the fantasy comedy Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Die Hard was singled out for Willis' salary, and the failure earlier that year of the western Sunset , his previous film, which brought into question his capability as a leading man.

The larger salaries paid to these stars were based on the built-in audience they could attract to a film's opening week, with good word of mouth supporting the film thereafter.

Willis did not have a built-in audience. Willis featured prominently in the film's early marketing campaign, but it underwent several changes as the film's release date drew nearer.

His refusal to address this, or speak about his personal life to the media, had reinforced this perception. For his part, Willis said that he wanted the media to focus on his acting.

A representative from an unnamed theater chain pulled the trailer in response. As 20th Century Fox's confidence in Willis' appeal faltered, the film's posters were changed to focus entirely on Nakatomi Plaza, with Willis' name receiving billing in tiny print.

Explaining why he was more involved in the promotion for Die Hard , Willis said, "I'm so excited about this film To me, it represents why I wanted to be an actor.

It was considered a successful debut with a high per-theater average gross. Instead, positive reviews and the limited release had made it a "must-see" film.

Die Hard received mixed reviews on its release. Though the "perfection of the form" it lacked a personality of its own. He said that it held potential as an intelligent thriller, but instead became an ever-increasing depiction of increasingly "numbing" violence and carnage.

Vincent Canby said it would appeal to audiences who require a constant stream of explosions and loud noises, calling it the "perfect movie for our time".

He described it as an intense but fleeting experience akin to "snorting pure oxygen". Critics were conflicted over Willis' performance.

He continued that Willis' "grace and physical bravado" allowed him to stand alongside the likes of Stallone and Schwarzenegger, but that his biggest strength—his comedic ability—is not used enough.

Though he acknowledged it would be difficult to perform when acting only against special effects. Rickman's performance was mainly praised.

He cited the character as an example of a "wilfully useless and dumb" obstruction that wasted screen time and derailed the film from being as tightly plotted as needed to be a successful thriller.

McTiernan's direction was frequently praised. However, he did not like Davi's character's narrative saying, "You were heroic! And now you've turned into an idiot!

I can't believe it here! Bassman , Kevin F. Other action films had failed to meet expectations; Rambo III and Red Heat —which had been predicted to perform well—were seen as underperforming disappointments.

In particular, to year-old males whose attitudes towards film content had turned against alcohol abuse, sexism and mindless machismo.

Along with films like Big and Young Guns , Die Hard was credited with revitalizing 20th Century Fox, which had had few successes in the recent preceding years.

It also showed the action genre was not "dead". The New York Times described it as the salary equivalent of an "earthquake". It was expected that salaries for major stars would increase significantly, to ensure they were paid more than a newer star like Willis.

This version includes the extra features of the '5-Star' edition. A limited-edition steelbook case version was also released. Die Hard can be thought of as a story about obtaining redemption through violence.

McClane comes to Los Angeles to save his marriage, but immediately makes the same mistakes that drove his wife, Holly, away. It is only after he defeats the terrorists, often using extreme violence, that McClane is able to reconcile with his wife.

He finds redemption by drawing his gun and shooting Karl to save his friend McClane. The more even-tempered characters—often African American—fare better: Powell who supports McClane, Argyle whose heroic moment is stopping Theo's escape and Theo, who survives the events.

He is forced to endure physical punishment, including his feet being cut by shards of glass, a " stigmata " that causes him to leave a trail of blood behind him.

In making these sacrifices, he salvages his family. In this sense, McClane can be seen as a modern, working-class Christ -like figure.

In Willis' own view, if given the choice, McClane would pass the responsibility of dealing with the terrorists on to anyone else, but he is forced to serve as a reluctant hero.

This serves as a symbol of his commitment to his marriage. When viewers are introduced to Holly, she is the opposite; she has returned to using her maiden name and is not wearing her wedding ring.

Instead, she is gifted a Rolex watch by her employers, serving as both a symbol of her commitment to her job and the division between her and her husband.

When McClane unclasps the watch at the film's end to free Holly from Gruber's grasp, the totem of their separation is broken, and they appear to have reconciled.

Die Hard has elements that are anti-government, anti-bureaucracy and anti-corporation. McClane responds "so my captain keeps telling me", suggesting that he operates outside of bureaucratically approved procedures.

They repeatedly try to deter McClane from interfering and let them handle events, unaware that the terrorists have already anticipated their every action.

Each is punished for standing in McClane's way. The film can also be seen as xenophobic. Alongside the mainly German group of terrorists, Nakatomi Plaza is owned by a Japanese corporation; at the time Japanese technology firms threatened to dominate the American technology industry.

The A. Club noted that unlike many other s films, Die Hard does not contain any allusions to the Vietnam War. The film mocks the idea when one FBI agent remarks that their helicopter assault is reminiscent of the war in Saigon ; his partner responds that at the time he was only in middle school.

Die Hard is now considered one of the greatest action films ever made. It was also massively influential on filmmaking. Before its release, action films often starred muscle-bound men like Schwarzenegger and Stallone, who portrayed invincible, infallible, catchphrase-spouting heroes in unrealistic settings.

Willis' portrayal of John McClane ran completely counter to that archetype. McClane was a normal person with an average physique.

He was failing, both personally and professionally. He serves as a vulnerable, identifiable hero who openly sobs and admits his fear of death and sustains lasting damage.

Importantly, his one-liners do not come from a place of superiority over his foes, but as a nervous reaction to the extreme situation in which he finds himself, which he is only able to overcome through enduring suffering and using his own initiative.

Similarly, Rickman's portrayal of Gruber redefined action villains who had previously been bland figures or eccentric madmen.

Gruber ushered in the clever nemesis; he is an educated, intelligent villain, who serves as the antithesis of the hero. Rickman described the role as a "huge event" in his life.

In the years since its release, Fox Plaza has become a popular tourist attraction, although the building itself cannot be toured.

When his head of staff toured the still-under-construction area, it was littered with broken glass and bullet casings.

In , Die Hard was selected by the United States Library of Congress to be preserved in the National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

One of the most influential films of the s, Die Hard served as the blueprint for action films that came after, especially throughout the s.

He said he was sure it had already been done. Writing for The Guardian in , Scott Tobias observed that none of these later films readily captured the complete effectiveness of the Die Hard story.

It has even been referenced in films and television targeted at children. There has been much debate over whether Die Hard is a Christmas film. Those in favor argue that its Christmas setting is sufficient to qualify it as a Christmas film.

Those opposed argue that it is an action film whose events just happens to take place at Christmas. They released a re-edited trailer for the film, portraying it as a traditional Christmas film.

According to De Souza, Silver predicted the film would be played at Christmastime for years. In , readers of Rolling Stone ranked it the number 10 action film of all time; [] readers of Empire voted it number 20 in Die Hard is considered one of the greatest action films ever made.

Club said that Willis' everyman persona is key to the film's success. Before Die Hard , Bruce Willis was just an actor with one hit TV show Moonlighting and a flop movie Blind Date [] to his name, but following Die Hard ' s huge success, he deservedly became one of Hollywood's hottest stars.

His cocky charm breathes life into the character of John McClane McTiernan packs his skyscraper adventure with explosions, fights, and relentless action Willis quips his way through a series of clever setups and payoffs Superbly acted by Willis as a guy who really would rather be somewhere else, McClane is a hero for the s A true rollercoaster ride of a movie.

Several publications have listed it as one of the greatest action films of all time, including: number one by Empire , [] IGN [] and Entertainment Weekly ; [] number 10 by Timeout; [] number 14 by The Guardian ; [] number 18 by Men's Health [] and unranked by Complex , [] Esquire [] and The Standard.

The consensus reads, "Its many imitators and sequels have never come close to matching the taut thrills of the definitive holiday action classic.

The enduring popularity of Die Hard led to a wide variety of merchandise produced for fans including: clothing; Funko Pops ; coloring and activity books; crockery; and Christmas jumpers , ornaments, and an illustrated Christmas book retelling the film.

The TurboGrafx edition begins with McClane fighting terrorists in a jungle; the NES version offers a "foot meter" that slows McClane's movements after he repeatedly steps on shattered glass.

Players choose either McClane—or secondary character Chris Thompsen—to battle through Nakatomi Plaza, defeat terrorists led by White Fang, and rescue the President's daughter.

Die Hard: The Ultimate Visual History —a book chronicling the development of the Die Hard film series—was released in to coincide with the film's 30th anniversary.

The success of Die Hard spawned four film sequels. It was also the last film to involve Silver and Gordon, who fell out with each other and Willis after filming concluded, delaying the production of a third film— Die Hard with a Vengeance.

The film was derided by critics; the reception was negative enough to stall the franchise. It is considered the weakest entry in the franchise, and a poor action film.

Die Hard remains the highest critically rated film in the series based on aggregated reviews. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

While the police frantically search local schools to locate the alleged bomb, Simon raids the gold bullion held in the underground vault of the Reserve and flees towards the Canada—US border.

With the help of Carver, McClane tracks Simon near the border. McClane kills Simon by shooting a power line which collapses into the blades of Simon's helicopter.

McClane has been on the force over 30 years, and is a senior detective, most likely a detective squad commander, since he holds the rank of lieutenant.

Terrorists led by Thomas Gabriel Timothy Olyphant , are conducting a fire sale to bidders, taking out the nation's infrastructure: power plants, traffic lights, transportation, and financial markets.

McClane has been divorced from Holly for 10 years, not speaking to his daughter Lucy Mary Elizabeth Winstead , who is kidnapped by Gabriel as leverage.

McClane's previous actions seem forgotten. Farrell is unaware of his past, McClane cynical about his fame. With Farrell, McClane again thwarts disaster.

Farrell counters Gabriel's hacks, while McClane eliminates his men. The culmination is when McClane shoots through his own shoulder to kill Gabriel.

His actions restore Lucy to friendliness. She introduces herself as Lucy McClane to Farrell. In the past, she introduced herself as Lucy Gennero, and told guys her father was dead.

John meets Jack and Komarov fleeing custody and Chagarin's thugs. Chagarin's henchmen attack again as they hide out in a CIA safe house.

John holds them off, allowing himself, Jack and Komarov to escape. John and Jack must escape again, but without Komarov. Following Komarov to Chernobyl , John and Jack learn that Komarov was actually using them to steal weapons-grade uranium from Chagarin.

Surviving yet another battle, John and Jack mend their relationship. Over the course of the series, their relationship becomes increasingly strained.

They have two children together, John "Jack" and Lucy. In Die Hard 2 , Holly and John appear to be on the path to reconciliation, although their relationship is far from perfect.

Her role is significantly diminished from that of the first film. Although Holly does not appear in Die Hard with a Vengeance , she is mentioned in conversation.

McClane makes an attempt to telephone her, and her voice is heard briefly on the phone. She still resides in Los Angeles and is still married to McClane.

Lucy McClane is John's daughter, born in She is later kidnapped by cyber-terrorist Thomas Gabriel for leverage against her father.

She proves to be resilient, tells her father the positions of Gabriel's men, and injures one when McClane is incapacitated. By the end of the film, she calls herself "Lucy McClane" and develops feelings for a hacker called Matt Farrell.

After Lucy drops her father off to the airport, she warns her father "not to screw up" when he travels to Russia. She later calls him while he's in the middle of a car chase and he has to hang up.

She meets his plane when he returns with Jack and happily reunites with both. John "Jack" McClane Jr. To get close to Komarov, he kills a Russian millionaire and asks to testify against Komarov for a shorter sentence.

Jack and his father gain admiration and respect for each other. They take down Komarov and his daughter Irina and discover their true plot of retrieving weapon-grade uranium from Chernobyl.

Jack throws Komarov to death into the rotor-blades of Irina's helicopter, after he claims John will die. Throughout the films, McClane is known for his catchphrase, "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker".

He frequently says it to taunt his adversaries, or in the moments before killing them. McClane adopts the phrase in the first film, Die Hard , when villain Hans Gruber calls him a cowboy and asks if he thinks he stands a chance.

McClane replies, "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker". At the end of the film, before his death at the hands of McClane, Gruber echoes the phrase before McClane overpowers him.

At the end of Die Hard 2 , he delivers it before lighting a trail of fuel to destroy the enemy airplane. At the end of Die Hard with a Vengeance , he says it in a low voice after shooting down the enemy helicopter.

Gabriel taunts him, claiming that McClane's tombstone will read "always in the wrong place at the wrong time". McClane replies, "How about 'yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker'?

The last two syllables are drowned out by the gunshot in the theatrical version. In the "unrated version," the line is altered to remain intact.

In the fifth film, A Good Day to Die Hard , McClane says the catchphrase before driving a truck out of an airborne helicopter in the final confrontation in Chernobyl.

The film title references the catchphrase's reputed meaning, a Native American war-cry meaning "This is a good day to die!

There was a debate over whether to use "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker" or "yippee-ti-yay, motherfucker". Principal photography began in November The under construction Fox Plaza offered both; only four or five stories were occupied at the time.

Cinematographer Jan de Bont said the building's design was distinct, making it a character on its own. Clear views of the building were available from a distance, enabling establishing shots as McClane approaches it.

Because Die Hard was filmed on location, the surrounding city could be seen from within the building, enhancing the realism.

Very little of the film was storyboarded beforehand. De Bont said that intricate storyboarding made his job redundant. Instead, he and McTiernan would discuss that day's filming in detail, and the feeling or sensation they wanted to portray.

De Bont was more concerned with creating a dramatic rather than an attractive shot; he cited the use of real flares in the film that generated unpredictable smoke and sometimes obscured the image.

He came straight from filming Moonlighting to shoot one of his most pivotal scenes, where McClane leaps from a rooftop as it explodes behind him, saved only by a length of hosepipe.

He was used to acting against another actor, but in Die Hard he is alone in many of his scenes, talking to himself or others via radio.

In contrast to their on-screen dynamics, Bedelia and VelJohnson spent most of their time between scenes with Rickman. The film's ending had not been finalized when filming began.

In the finished film, Theo retrieves an ambulance from the truck the terrorists arrived in to use as an escape vehicle.

As this was a late decision, the truck the terrorists are shown arriving in was too small to hold an ambulance. An additional scene, showing the terrorists synchronizing their TAG Heuer watches, also showed the truck was empty; this scene had to be deleted.

This led to other necessary changes. As scripted, McClane realizes that the American hostage he encounters is Gruber because of the distinctive TAG Heuer watch he had seen on the other terrorists; the watches were no longer an established plot point.

De'voreaux actually punched Gilyard during the scene, which was added in only in the last 10 days of filming. Depending on the actors' performances, some characters were kept in the film longer and others killed off sooner.

After 30 minutes, a team of stuntmen arrived to help them escape via the roof hatch and crossover to another elevator parked next to it.

He recruited Frank J. Urioste and John F. Link to edit scenes together while in mid-motion. This was contrary to the mainstream style of editing used at the time.

He offered to misuse German composer Richard Wagner 's music instead of tarnishing that of Beethoven. Let It Snow!

When Kamen first saw Die Hard , it was largely incomplete and he was unimpressed. Even so, he admitted there were tracks from his Die Hard score that he liked.

McTiernan did not like a Kamen piece created for the final scene where Karl emerges from the building to kill McClane.

He decided to use a temporary track that was already in place; a piece of unused score from composer James Horner 's work for Aliens ; cues are also used from the action film Man on Fire.

It would go on to be considered a Christmas classic, in part because of its use in the film. The perception of film stunts had changed shortly before production of Die Hard began following an accident on the set of the Twilight Zone: The Movie that had killed several actors.

A push was made to prioritize a film's crew over the value of the film itself. The stunt involved a foot leap from a five-story parking garage ledge onto an airbag as a foot wall of flame exploded behind him; he considered it to be one of his toughest stunts.

The explosive force pushed him towards the edge of the airbag; the crew was concerned he had died. A set was used for the following scene where McClane shoots out a window to re-enter the building.

It was shot approximately halfway into the filming schedule so that all involved had gained more stunt experience. The window was made of fragile sugar glass that took two hours to set up; there were only a few takes for this reason.

A team of stuntmen positioned below the window dragged the hosepipe and pulled Willis towards the edge. Stuntmen were preferred over a hoist, as they could better control Willis' fall if he went over the edge.

Frank Urioste kept the scene when he worked on the editing. For Gruber's fall from Nakatomi Plaza, Rickman was dropped between 20 feet 6.

Rickman had to fall backward onto the bag, something even stuntmen avoid to control their fall. He was let go early to elicit a genuine look of surprise.

McTiernan said, "there's no way he could fake that". Capturing the stunt was difficult. Rickman was dropped at a rate of 32 feet 9.

Despite these innovations, the camera struggled to keep Rickman entirely in focus during his 1. Months of negotiations took place before permission was given to drive a SWAT vehicle up the steps of Fox Plaza as the script required.

A railing knocked over during shooting was never replaced. In the scene where McClane throws C4 down the elevator shaft to stop the assault, the effects team blew out every window on one floor or the building; they were unsure what was going to happen until they did the stunt.

It took three attempts above Fox Plaza, and nine camera crews filming with 24 different cameras. Mortar-like devices filled with propane were used for explosions.

They took ten minutes to install and offered a six-second burst of flame. To prevent the in-building locations looking similar because of the standard fluorescent office lighting, De Bont concealed small film lights in high locations.

He controlled these to create more dynamic and dramatic lighting. He placed fluorescent tubes on the floor in one scene to indicate they had not been installed; this gave him the opportunity to use unusual light positioning.

The Nakatomi Building's 30th floor—where the hostages are held—was one of the few sets. De Govia's reasoning was that it reflected the trend at the time of Japanese corporations buying up American corporate assets.

An early design for the Nakatomi logo was too reminiscent of a swastika ; the final design is closer to a Samurai warrior's helmet.

A foot-long matte painting provided the city backdrop as viewed from inside the building's 30th floor. It featured animated lights and other lighting techniques to present both moving traffic, daytime and nighttime.

The summer of was expected to be dominated by action and comedy films; [28] however, a broader range of films were released that year. More films targeted older audiences rather than teenagers, a reflection of the increasing age of the average audience member.

Their collective potential was significant enough for George Lucas —who had dominated May in previous years with Star Wars and Indiana Jones films—to move his film Willow to avoid the competition.

Industry executives also had high expectations for the romantic comedy Coming to America and the fantasy comedy Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Die Hard was singled out for Willis' salary, and the failure earlier that year of the western Sunset , his previous film, which brought into question his capability as a leading man.

The larger salaries paid to these stars were based on the built-in audience they could attract to a film's opening week, with good word of mouth supporting the film thereafter.

Willis did not have a built-in audience. Willis featured prominently in the film's early marketing campaign, but it underwent several changes as the film's release date drew nearer.

His refusal to address this, or speak about his personal life to the media, had reinforced this perception. For his part, Willis said that he wanted the media to focus on his acting.

A representative from an unnamed theater chain pulled the trailer in response. As 20th Century Fox's confidence in Willis' appeal faltered, the film's posters were changed to focus entirely on Nakatomi Plaza, with Willis' name receiving billing in tiny print.

Explaining why he was more involved in the promotion for Die Hard , Willis said, "I'm so excited about this film To me, it represents why I wanted to be an actor.

It was considered a successful debut with a high per-theater average gross. Instead, positive reviews and the limited release had made it a "must-see" film.

Die Hard received mixed reviews on its release. Though the "perfection of the form" it lacked a personality of its own.

He said that it held potential as an intelligent thriller, but instead became an ever-increasing depiction of increasingly "numbing" violence and carnage.

Vincent Canby said it would appeal to audiences who require a constant stream of explosions and loud noises, calling it the "perfect movie for our time".

He described it as an intense but fleeting experience akin to "snorting pure oxygen". Critics were conflicted over Willis' performance.

He continued that Willis' "grace and physical bravado" allowed him to stand alongside the likes of Stallone and Schwarzenegger, but that his biggest strength—his comedic ability—is not used enough.

Though he acknowledged it would be difficult to perform when acting only against special effects. Rickman's performance was mainly praised.

He cited the character as an example of a "wilfully useless and dumb" obstruction that wasted screen time and derailed the film from being as tightly plotted as needed to be a successful thriller.

McTiernan's direction was frequently praised. However, he did not like Davi's character's narrative saying, "You were heroic!

And now you've turned into an idiot! I can't believe it here! Bassman , Kevin F. Other action films had failed to meet expectations; Rambo III and Red Heat —which had been predicted to perform well—were seen as underperforming disappointments.

In particular, to year-old males whose attitudes towards film content had turned against alcohol abuse, sexism and mindless machismo. Along with films like Big and Young Guns , Die Hard was credited with revitalizing 20th Century Fox, which had had few successes in the recent preceding years.

It also showed the action genre was not "dead". The New York Times described it as the salary equivalent of an "earthquake". It was expected that salaries for major stars would increase significantly, to ensure they were paid more than a newer star like Willis.

This version includes the extra features of the '5-Star' edition. A limited-edition steelbook case version was also released. Die Hard can be thought of as a story about obtaining redemption through violence.

McClane comes to Los Angeles to save his marriage, but immediately makes the same mistakes that drove his wife, Holly, away.

It is only after he defeats the terrorists, often using extreme violence, that McClane is able to reconcile with his wife. He finds redemption by drawing his gun and shooting Karl to save his friend McClane.

The more even-tempered characters—often African American—fare better: Powell who supports McClane, Argyle whose heroic moment is stopping Theo's escape and Theo, who survives the events.

He is forced to endure physical punishment, including his feet being cut by shards of glass, a " stigmata " that causes him to leave a trail of blood behind him.

In making these sacrifices, he salvages his family. In this sense, McClane can be seen as a modern, working-class Christ -like figure.

In Willis' own view, if given the choice, McClane would pass the responsibility of dealing with the terrorists on to anyone else, but he is forced to serve as a reluctant hero.

This serves as a symbol of his commitment to his marriage. When viewers are introduced to Holly, she is the opposite; she has returned to using her maiden name and is not wearing her wedding ring.

Instead, she is gifted a Rolex watch by her employers, serving as both a symbol of her commitment to her job and the division between her and her husband.

When McClane unclasps the watch at the film's end to free Holly from Gruber's grasp, the totem of their separation is broken, and they appear to have reconciled.

Die Hard has elements that are anti-government, anti-bureaucracy and anti-corporation. McClane responds "so my captain keeps telling me", suggesting that he operates outside of bureaucratically approved procedures.

They repeatedly try to deter McClane from interfering and let them handle events, unaware that the terrorists have already anticipated their every action.

Each is punished for standing in McClane's way. The film can also be seen as xenophobic. Alongside the mainly German group of terrorists, Nakatomi Plaza is owned by a Japanese corporation; at the time Japanese technology firms threatened to dominate the American technology industry.

The A. Club noted that unlike many other s films, Die Hard does not contain any allusions to the Vietnam War. The film mocks the idea when one FBI agent remarks that their helicopter assault is reminiscent of the war in Saigon ; his partner responds that at the time he was only in middle school.

Die Hard is now considered one of the greatest action films ever made. It was also massively influential on filmmaking. Before its release, action films often starred muscle-bound men like Schwarzenegger and Stallone, who portrayed invincible, infallible, catchphrase-spouting heroes in unrealistic settings.

Willis' portrayal of John McClane ran completely counter to that archetype. McClane was a normal person with an average physique. He was failing, both personally and professionally.

He serves as a vulnerable, identifiable hero who openly sobs and admits his fear of death and sustains lasting damage.

Importantly, his one-liners do not come from a place of superiority over his foes, but as a nervous reaction to the extreme situation in which he finds himself, which he is only able to overcome through enduring suffering and using his own initiative.

Similarly, Rickman's portrayal of Gruber redefined action villains who had previously been bland figures or eccentric madmen.

Gruber ushered in the clever nemesis; he is an educated, intelligent villain, who serves as the antithesis of the hero.

Rickman described the role as a "huge event" in his life. In the years since its release, Fox Plaza has become a popular tourist attraction, although the building itself cannot be toured.

When his head of staff toured the still-under-construction area, it was littered with broken glass and bullet casings.

In , Die Hard was selected by the United States Library of Congress to be preserved in the National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

One of the most influential films of the s, Die Hard served as the blueprint for action films that came after, especially throughout the s.

He said he was sure it had already been done. Writing for The Guardian in , Scott Tobias observed that none of these later films readily captured the complete effectiveness of the Die Hard story.

It has even been referenced in films and television targeted at children. There has been much debate over whether Die Hard is a Christmas film.

Those in favor argue that its Christmas setting is sufficient to qualify it as a Christmas film. Those opposed argue that it is an action film whose events just happens to take place at Christmas.

They released a re-edited trailer for the film, portraying it as a traditional Christmas film. According to De Souza, Silver predicted the film would be played at Christmastime for years.

In , readers of Rolling Stone ranked it the number 10 action film of all time; [] readers of Empire voted it number 20 in Die Hard is considered one of the greatest action films ever made.

Club said that Willis' everyman persona is key to the film's success. Before Die Hard , Bruce Willis was just an actor with one hit TV show Moonlighting and a flop movie Blind Date [] to his name, but following Die Hard ' s huge success, he deservedly became one of Hollywood's hottest stars.

His cocky charm breathes life into the character of John McClane McTiernan packs his skyscraper adventure with explosions, fights, and relentless action Willis quips his way through a series of clever setups and payoffs Superbly acted by Willis as a guy who really would rather be somewhere else, McClane is a hero for the s A true rollercoaster ride of a movie.

Several publications have listed it as one of the greatest action films of all time, including: number one by Empire , [] IGN [] and Entertainment Weekly ; [] number 10 by Timeout; [] number 14 by The Guardian ; [] number 18 by Men's Health [] and unranked by Complex , [] Esquire [] and The Standard.

The consensus reads, "Its many imitators and sequels have never come close to matching the taut thrills of the definitive holiday action classic.

The enduring popularity of Die Hard led to a wide variety of merchandise produced for fans including: clothing; Funko Pops ; coloring and activity books; crockery; and Christmas jumpers , ornaments, and an illustrated Christmas book retelling the film.

The TurboGrafx edition begins with McClane fighting terrorists in a jungle; the NES version offers a "foot meter" that slows McClane's movements after he repeatedly steps on shattered glass.

Players choose either McClane—or secondary character Chris Thompsen—to battle through Nakatomi Plaza, defeat terrorists led by White Fang, and rescue the President's daughter.

Die Hard: The Ultimate Visual History —a book chronicling the development of the Die Hard film series—was released in to coincide with the film's 30th anniversary.

The success of Die Hard spawned four film sequels. It was also the last film to involve Silver and Gordon, who fell out with each other and Willis after filming concluded, delaying the production of a third film— Die Hard with a Vengeance.

The film was derided by critics; the reception was negative enough to stall the franchise. It is considered the weakest entry in the franchise, and a poor action film.

Die Hard remains the highest critically rated film in the series based on aggregated reviews. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Archived from the original on November 7, Retrieved June 29, Archived from the original on December 6, At the beginning of the film, an unidentified terrorist known only by the name "Simon" Jeremy Irons has detonated at least one bomb in the city and threatens to detonate others unless McClane undertakes to solve a series of challenges and riddles modeled after the children's game Simon says.

Jackson , saves McClane during the first challenge and is forced to further accompany McClane at Simon's request. After attempting to solve and complete several riddles and challenges, the FBI finally reveal to McClane that "Simon" is Simon Peter Gruber, the brother of Hans Gruber the antagonist of the first film.

It is assumed by the FBI that at least part of Simon's motive involves seeking revenge against McClane for his brother's death.

Like Hans, Simon is determined to use acts of terror as a smokescreen to perpetrate thievery. Using a fake bomb threat concerning New York City area schools, Simon draws nearly all of the city's police force away from his target: New York's Federal Reserve.

While the police frantically search local schools to locate the alleged bomb, Simon raids the gold bullion held in the underground vault of the Reserve and flees towards the Canada—US border.

With the help of Carver, McClane tracks Simon near the border. McClane kills Simon by shooting a power line which collapses into the blades of Simon's helicopter.

McClane has been on the force over 30 years, and is a senior detective, most likely a detective squad commander, since he holds the rank of lieutenant.

Terrorists led by Thomas Gabriel Timothy Olyphant , are conducting a fire sale to bidders, taking out the nation's infrastructure: power plants, traffic lights, transportation, and financial markets.

McClane has been divorced from Holly for 10 years, not speaking to his daughter Lucy Mary Elizabeth Winstead , who is kidnapped by Gabriel as leverage.

McClane's previous actions seem forgotten. Farrell is unaware of his past, McClane cynical about his fame. With Farrell, McClane again thwarts disaster.

Farrell counters Gabriel's hacks, while McClane eliminates his men. The culmination is when McClane shoots through his own shoulder to kill Gabriel.

His actions restore Lucy to friendliness. She introduces herself as Lucy McClane to Farrell. In the past, she introduced herself as Lucy Gennero, and told guys her father was dead.

John meets Jack and Komarov fleeing custody and Chagarin's thugs. Chagarin's henchmen attack again as they hide out in a CIA safe house.

John holds them off, allowing himself, Jack and Komarov to escape. John and Jack must escape again, but without Komarov.

Following Komarov to Chernobyl , John and Jack learn that Komarov was actually using them to steal weapons-grade uranium from Chagarin. Surviving yet another battle, John and Jack mend their relationship.

Over the course of the series, their relationship becomes increasingly strained. They have two children together, John "Jack" and Lucy. In Die Hard 2 , Holly and John appear to be on the path to reconciliation, although their relationship is far from perfect.

Her role is significantly diminished from that of the first film. Although Holly does not appear in Die Hard with a Vengeance , she is mentioned in conversation.

McClane makes an attempt to telephone her, and her voice is heard briefly on the phone. She still resides in Los Angeles and is still married to McClane.

Lucy McClane is John's daughter, born in She is later kidnapped by cyber-terrorist Thomas Gabriel for leverage against her father.

She proves to be resilient, tells her father the positions of Gabriel's men, and injures one when McClane is incapacitated.

By the end of the film, she calls herself "Lucy McClane" and develops feelings for a hacker called Matt Farrell. After Lucy drops her father off to the airport, she warns her father "not to screw up" when he travels to Russia.

She later calls him while he's in the middle of a car chase and he has to hang up. She meets his plane when he returns with Jack and happily reunites with both.

John "Jack" McClane Jr. To get close to Komarov, he kills a Russian millionaire and asks to testify against Komarov for a shorter sentence.

Jack and his father gain admiration and respect for each other. They take down Komarov and his daughter Irina and discover their true plot of retrieving weapon-grade uranium from Chernobyl.

Jack throws Komarov to death into the rotor-blades of Irina's helicopter, after he claims John will die. Throughout the films, McClane is known for his catchphrase, "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker".

He frequently says it to taunt his adversaries, or in the moments before killing them. McClane adopts the phrase in the first film, Die Hard , when villain Hans Gruber calls him a cowboy and asks if he thinks he stands a chance.

McClane replies, "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker". At the end of the film, before his death at the hands of McClane, Gruber echoes the phrase before McClane overpowers him.

At the end of Die Hard 2 , he delivers it before lighting a trail of fuel to destroy the enemy airplane.

At the end of Die Hard with a Vengeance , he says it in a low voice after shooting down the enemy helicopter. Gabriel taunts him, claiming that McClane's tombstone will read "always in the wrong place at the wrong time".

McClane replies, "How about 'yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker'? The last two syllables are drowned out by the gunshot in the theatrical version.

In the "unrated version," the line is altered to remain intact. In the fifth film, A Good Day to Die Hard , McClane says the catchphrase before driving a truck out of an airborne helicopter in the final confrontation in Chernobyl.

The film title references the catchphrase's reputed meaning, a Native American war-cry meaning "This is a good day to die! Empire ranked him number 12 on their list of the Greatest Movie Characters of All Time in and number 7 in Bruce Willis was called "an excellent casting choice as a sardonic action hero.
