During the scene when the FBI mentions Hans Gruber, Inspector Walter Cobb asks what they are talking about; Ricky Walsh (played by Anthony Peck) replies directly to him and says, "that thing in the building in L.A." In fact, Anthony Peck also played a cop with the LAPD in the first Die Hard film in 1988. He appeared in scenes mainly with Sergeant Al Powell outside of the Nakatomi building. Whether or not he is supposed to be the same character in this movie is unclear. See more »

[pointing a gun at Simon in the bridge of the freighter]
Don't fuckin' move.
Oh, the Samaritan.
Gimme the goddamn code.
[realizing what Zeus is talking about]
Oh, you mean for the school. I'm sorry, I can't do that.
You call in that code right now. Or I'll blow your sick ass into the next world.
If that's what you gotta do.

You forgot to take the safety catch off.

Someone's got a thing for John McClane. Bombs are going off around New York and if McClane doesn't do what Simon says, more things will go boom. Along for the ride with the always watchable Bruce Willis is Samuel L. Jackson, a electronics store owner who just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. These two are off all over Manhattan figuring out Simon's little riddles. Jeremy Irons is perfectly cast as the intelligent Simon. He's shrewd, charming and knows how to get a job done. Back in the director's chair is John McTiernan, overseeing the mayhem. The action sequences are bigger, louder and wilder than before. Car chases, shoot outs, and a really neat sequence involving a ship, a bridge and a truck highlight this action lovers delight. So, buckle up, turn up the sound and get ready for a hell of a ride. New York is about to go boom!
