Storyline

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 SARSman1793

Trivia

Director John McTiernan acknowledged the errors concerning the gold in the dump trucks and its respective weight. McTiernan and Samuel L. Jackson were permitted to lift a genuine bar of gold to get a feel of how heavy gold really was. See more »

Goofs

The German spoken in the movie is pretty poor. Most of it is spoken by actors trying to speak German. Only the actor giving orders in the Stadium seems to speak German. He speaks with a Bavarian Accent. He is the only one in the entire movie who's German is somewhat correct. Besides the accent, the grammar is often incorrect. It seems that they just took the English words and replaced them with German ones, without any regard for the real German grammar, which is often quite different. Further more, they often have people speaking English with a fake German accent. No Native German Speaker would sound like that, when speaking English. See more »

Quotes

Inspector Cobb: [over the phone after telling him there are dump trucks driving on the FDR highway carrying gold bricks] Have you been drinking, McClane?
John McClane: No, not since this morning.

Not your average action movie
10 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

This movie gets right to the point and starts off with an explosion. I love that. A crazy guy named Simon (played very well by Jeremy Irons) blows up a store, and asks to speak to John McClane, who is on suspension. The cops grab McClane, who is by now a heavy drinker, and put him on the phone with Simon. Simon makes him walk through Harlem with a very offensive sign. Just when he is about to get beat down, he is rescued by the racist Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Zeus. It seems as though Simon wants revenge on McClane for something, but nobody knows why. Now, Zeus and McClane are at the mercy of Simon, who meanwhile is committing a massive robbery.

This movie is considerably different from the other two, which is probably a good thing. Who wants the same thing three times in a row? The plot has as many twists and turns as a snake, and the movie keeps the viewer involved. Watching Zeus and McClane bicker is amusing as well. Samuel L. Jackson pulls off the role of the "racist black man" very well. I would highly recommend this movie.
