For those who argue that Die Hard 2 is a desperate re-hash of the
original... So what? I didn't expect a companion piece like The Godfather
Part II. Die Hard was about a really cool guy in a really bad situation,

there had to be more stunts and explosions. So there is. Die Hard 2

flurry of furious action scenarios. The fight on the wing of the plane is a
classic in its own right, and Die Hard 2 stands alone as one of the best of
