John McClane is now almost a full-blown alcoholic and is suspended from the NYPD. But when a bomb goes off in the Bonwit Teller Department Store the police go insane trying to figure out what's going on. Soon, a man named Simon calls and asks for McClane. Simon tells Inspector Walter Cobb that McClane is going to play a game called "Simon Says". He says that McClane is going to do the tasks he assigns him. If not, he'll blow off another bomb. With the help of a Harlem electrician, John McClane must race all over New York trying to figure out the frustrating puzzles that the crafty terrorist gives him. But when a bomb goes off in a subway station right by the Federal Reserve (the biggest gold storage in the world) things start to get heated up. Written by
In the scene where Zeus (Samuel L. Jackson) is trying to get out of going with McClane (Bruce Willis) on the trip across the city, he [Zeus] gets up, exclaiming, "I'm not jumping through hoops for some psycho! That's a white man with white problems, you deal with him! Let me know when he crosses 110th street." The line "Across 110th Street" is a reference to the film of the same name, whose main title was a pop hit, and was featured in the film Jackie Brown (1997), which also starred Samuel L. Jackson.

The wrist watch John is wearing throughout the movie changes model several times. The 1st half of the film he is seen wearing a Breitling Chronomat , but after he is thrown from the water pipe and sorts through the coins in the dead drivers pockets of the car they force off the road , the face of the Breitling is missing the chronograph and the watch has a serrated bezel not like the Chronomat.
it then switches back before they attempt to board the boat , and then reverts again when handcuffed. This is seen clearly in the Blu-ray version. See more »

Regardless of what you might think of Bruce Willis, he really does excel in this series of films and John McClane, the all action policeman is the perfect role for him.
This time his sidekick is the guru of the action film, Samuel L. Jackson, the owner of an electrical store, as he goes up against the ever excellent Jeremy irons, who can play a bad guy like few others.
Irons is executing the greatest heist ever, and the shots throughout the film are spectacular. The lack of any half decent script is completely masked by explosions, but what else would you expect?
