If you took a shot of whiskey for every Christmas reference offered by Die Hard (Ho Ho Ho Now I Have A Machine Gun, the music, the decorations…), you’d be hammered by the time Bruce Willis’ New York cop John McClane first catches on that all is not well at his ex-wife’s L.A. company Christmas party. Seems a group of terrorists (or are they?) have crashed the high-rise festivities, heavily armed and led by suave Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), and they have no intention to let anyone leave the building alive. What’s a gung-ho, John Wayne-quoting lone gunman to do?
