After throwing Alan Rickman off a skyscraper, Bruce Willis, as John McClane, is back to tackle a super-nasty ex-Special Forces bad guy and generally fire guns. But hey, it's Christmas…

Spoiler Alert: This blog is published ahead of the screening of Die Hard 2 (1990) on Film4 on Sunday at 9pm. Do not read if you have not seen the film and don't want to know anything about it.

"Honey, it's the nineties, remember? Microchips, microwaves, faxes, air phones..." – Holly McClane

Imagine that the Die Hard films are rescue-centre puppies. Your eye might be drawn to Die Hard 1, bright and well-groomed and adventurous. Or Die Hard 4.0 and 5 (A Good Day to Die Hard), which at least try to make up for their witlessness by barking louder than anything else. But then, at the back, you clap eyes on Die Hard 2. It's nobody's idea of a good-looking dog. It's barely even a dog. »
