Sex & Nudity

  • Male buttocks visible briefly in dim room.

Violence & Gore

  • Lots of shooting. People are shot in the head, chest, shoulder, and leg with frequency. Bloody bullet holes (mostly ungraphic, although there is one instance of a very bloody wound) and tiny amounts of blood spray is sometimes shown. A few people are shot at point blank, one in the head.
  • A man has his head crushed by a conveyor belt. This actual impact is not seen but it is strongly implied.
  • A very large, tall, and heavy shelf falls on top of a man. Intense.
  • McClane stabs a terrorist in the eye with an icicle. We see a brief closeup of the ice protruding from his eye socket with some blood.
  • A man's throat is slit. We see a bloody gash on his neck. Blood briefly pumps from the wound.
  • A man is sucked into the turbine of a plane. We don't see him go in, but we see thick blood, splatter on the side of the plane.
  • Many people are killed in plane explosions. One is caused by a crash that the villainous mercenaries deliberately engineer to show that they are serious about their demands.
  • Plenty of hand-to-hand combat that include headbutts, repeated heavy punches, and kicks.
  • An irresponsible report aboard one of the planes sends a sensationalistic report to the media, causing a panic at the airport the staff dearly wanted to avoid. A heroine shocks him with a stun gun to shut him up.

Profanity

  • 65 uses of f**k and motherf**ker. One use of c**ksucker. Many uses of moderate and mild bad language (son of a b*tch, sh*t, a**, a**hole, pissing, crap, hell, damn, goddamn, Jesus, and Christ).

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some characters are seen smoking cigarettes and drinking wine.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The movie is about terrorists attacking an airport and crashing planes.
  • In one scene, a plane full of innocent people crashes and explodes as a result of the main terrorists shutting off the runway lights and sending false electronic navigational information to the pilots. This may disturb or upset some viewers.
  • BBFC (UK) - Rated 15 (strong language, bloody violence).
  • Recommended Rating: R for strong graphic violence including some disturbing images, pervasive strong language, some nudity and a brief crude comment
