After the terrifying events in LA, John McClane (Willis) is about to go through it all again. A team of terrorists, led by Col. Stuart (Sadler) is holding the entire airport hostage. The terrorists are planning to rescue a drug lord from justice. In order to do so, they have seized control of all electrical equipment affecting all planes. With no runway lights available, all aircraft have to remain in the air, with fuel running low, McClane will need to be fast.Written by

When Thornburg shuts himself in the bathroom in order to phone the studio, the overhead shot clearly shows that the toilet is fake; lined with silver foil, rather than an actual metal fitment you'd expect to find in a plane. See more »
The original film release and early widescreen video releases used an anamorphically-stretched version of the 20th Century Fox logo, probably to continue a running gag from Die Hard (1988) even though the director was new (see trivia for Predator (1987)). The 2001 DVD changes it to a normal-proportioned logo. See more »
I was expecting the worse when I saw this film, but this movie seemed to escape the curse of the cheesy sequel. Just as action packed and enthralling as the original, the wit displayed in this film saved it from being a mediocre follow-up. Bruce Willis was once again a great hero, showing how little being considered a hero means to him. A good film with a great plot twist, this is one of those action films which is just as good as the original.
