Did You Know?


Theatrical trailer shows some deleted and alternate scenes from original cut of the movie before it was partially re-shot and re-edited; Alternate interrogation scene between McQuean and Kirkpatrick in the beginning where he asks her some questions and she says that nobody tried to kill her, another extended part of this scene where she asks him does he has problem with lawyers and he says that he's a cop and that it's "written on the badge". Alternate dialogue between them while they are driving in car at night where he says that they can't trust any cops and when she asks him why she should trust him he says because he hasn't shoot her yet and adds a line "Night's still young". Additional scene where he gives her the gun and when she says that she doesn't know how to shoot he says it's just like using a camera, just point and shoot. Additional scene where Kirkpatrick asks McQuean will she hit him but she says "Night's still young", same line he said to her in another deleted scene shown in trailer. See more »


The villains detect Max's cellphone in use, but do not try to monitor his conversation on it, even though they have demonstrated the more difficult capability of monitoring conversations on a conventional phone. By monitoring the cellphone call, they could have spotted Max's deception at once. See more »

Pain has a new name: Fair Game
11 December 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is bad, very bad. It must have sounded like a good idea at the time: "Die Hard With Legal Mumbo-Jumbo" with a twist: we'll have a sexy model as the star.

Erm, it sounds good on paper, and perhaps it would have been a good idea if they hadn't screwed the damn thing up by giving us a weak script, even weaker plot, weaker villians and then give up on the sexy model as John McClane and turn her into a damsel in distress.

It almost feels like Producer, Joel Silver is satirizing or parodying himself in the constant need for set-piece action after set-piece action strung together on the weakest thing to ever grace the screen.

Everything that hits something explodes, cars hit telegraph poles and explode violently, tree's that are in the way explode even more violently...its almost too much to take in. I know action is what was driving hollywood around the early 90s - but this is just TOO much.

Anyway, the film pretty much nose-dives when Crawford - who looks stunning - turns into a damsel in distress with Baldwin acting like he's painting by numbers - just doing the thing because either Stallone dropped out or because of the money.

Not even the "sex-scenes" can save this terrible affair. Not even Berkov, now type-cast as Russian bad guys, can save it. Everything hurts...everything. The end explosion looks kinda cool, but it can't mask the fact that this film is flimsy at best - and at worst? Well, I just don't wanna think about that.

They could have made it a lot better than this trash. A die-hard with a woman as the hero could have been done a lot better. Its a shame with the buckloads of money they wasted on this trash seems to have gone onto Crawford's make-up.

My Rating: 0/10
