A cybernetic warrior from a post-apocalyptic future travels back in time to protect a 25-year old drifter and his future wife from a most advanced robotic assassin and to ensure they both survive a nuclear attack.
John McClane is now almost a full-blown alcoholic and is suspended from the NYPD. But when a bomb goes off in the Bonwit Teller Department Store the police go insane trying to figure out what's going on. Soon, a man named Simon calls and asks for McClane. Simon tells Inspector Walter Cobb that McClane is going to play a game called "Simon Says". He says that McClane is going to do the tasks he assigns him. If not, he'll set off another bomb. With the help of a Harlem electrician, John McClane must race all over New York trying to figure out the frustrating puzzles that the crafty terrorist gives him. But when a bomb goes off in a subway station right by the Federal Reserve (the biggest gold storage in the world) things start to get heated.Written by
Some of the violent and bloody scenes from the film had to be cut down for an R rating after John McTiernan's original cut got an NC-17 rating. For example, cuts were made on some of the death scenes, and the fight scene between McClane and Targo was heavily cut. If you look closely during the scene where McClane beats Targo with a chain, one moment he is hitting him with it, and in next shot, when Targo is on the ground, he has the chain around his face. The on-set "Making of" documentary shows some clips of deleted and alternative scenes, including one which shows the uncut death of the guy that McClane shoots on the boat. See more »
When McClain is in elevator of the bank and shoots the last man, the blood splatters all over the right side of his face including his ear. In the next scene when McClain aims his gun at Zeus, the blood is no long on his ear and only on the front area of the right side of his face. See more »

FX Edit also cuts much of the conversation during the water jug sequence, uses an ugly (and trimmed) pan'n'scan version of the shot as McClane and Zeus fall onto the ship (Zeus is only partially visible for a second), and the taxi appears to be scratched before entering Central Park. See more »

Regardless of what you might think of Bruce Willis, he really does excel in this series of films and John McClane, the all action policeman is the perfect role for him.
This time his sidekick is the guru of the action film, Samuel L. Jackson, the owner of an electrical store, as he goes up against the ever excellent Jeremy irons, who can play a bad guy like few others.
Irons is executing the greatest heist ever, and the shots throughout the film are spectacular. The lack of any half decent script is completely masked by explosions, but what else would you expect?
