Personal Quote:

[on Basic (2003)] The camera isn't just moving for the sake of keeping it moving. The camera is an active narrator in a thriller. The camera has to tell you how to evaluate every piece information you get and put it into context. [audio commentary] See more »

Trivia:

Turned down the chance to direct Die Hard 2 (1990) and Predator 2 (1990) in order to direct The Hunt for Red October (1990). He later directed Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995), the next entry in the "Die Hard" film series. See more »
