Sex & Nudity

  • An early kissing scene between McClane's daughter and her boyfriend has some breast-groping which is quickly stopped.
  • Sexually suggestive internet popups are seen briefly in one scene, but they contain no nudity.
  • There is a brief scene of intense kissing between Gabriel and Mai Lihn.

Violence & Gore

  • Numerous instances of people being shot, stabbed, or hit, though minimal to no blood is shown for most (but not all) of these. Numerous deaths are explicitly depicted in the film, though again typically with minimal blood shown. However, McClane is either bleeding or covered in blood for most of the movie.
  • There is no overt gore shown in the film. One fight scene depicts a man falling into fast-moving cooling fans, killing him; however, the actual death of the man is not shown on camera, nor is his body shown while or after it encounters the fans.
  • There is very frequent use of deadly force and threats of use of deadly force involving shooting (already noted), crushing (roads, cars, trucks, etc), falling (elevator shaft, helicopter crashing, overpass falls), and fire (natural gas explosions, elevator shaft fires, helicopter on fire with pilot inside). Much destruction and a threat of the country being torn apart through computer-hacking.

Profanity

  • One reviewer gives an overall profanity count at around 100. Rough counts for various terms include: 20+ "sh*t", 10+ "@ss" (several with "hole"), 10 "godd@mn", 20+ other uses of "God" and 10+ uses of "Jesus" as profanities. There were about 9 "hell", 5 "damn", and 1 "S.O.B.", There were several uses of "d*ck" including "d*ckhead". "J*rkoff" and "b*tch" were used a few times. There is one trademark McClane "yippee-ki-yay m-----f---er.", with the latter part of the word being obscured by noise as he says it.
