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
Each of the Gruber brothers, Simon and Hans, have a man named "Karl" on his team. Karl in Die Hard (1988) is the thief shot by Sergeant Powell at the end. In this film, Karl is stationed at the Federal Reserve bank, and is killed by McClane in the elevator sequence. See more »
Each of the fully-loaded dump trucks full of the stolen gold weighed over 350 tons (750,000) pounds. There is no way they would have been allowed onto the FDR bridge, or any other bridge in the U. S., with the maximum lawful load being nearly 1/10th of that which was shown, or 80,000 lbs. The terrorists, as educated as they appear to be, should have known this, as they would have been stopped and arrested as soon as they got to the first bridge. See more »
[about to enter the subway station to answer Simon's call on time]
Listen, you fail I cover your ass. I fail you cover my ass!
[still sitting in the stolen cab]
And if we both fail?
[entering the subway station to answer Simon's call on time]
Then we're both fucked!

SPOILER: The Version shown on German TV features the alternative ending (Gruber escapes with the gold, but McClane tracks him down through the number on the bottom of the aspirin bottle (at the phone booth) and kills him). See more »
Die Hard With A Vengence is a near-perfect summer movie. This franchise effort is a gleeful no-brainer with nonstop action. It gives some additional perverse pleasure, as we get to watch smartypants Bruce Willis get smacked around for 112 minutes. In this third outing with John McClane, we are faced with yet another mad bomber on the loose. Jeremy Irons plays Simon, a nasty piece of Eurotrash who has a score to settle with Detective McClane. Simon's bombing game comes complete with crafty riddles, which must be solved in a specified time or everything goes boom. McClane has no choice but to play. Along the way, he picks up an unlikely accomplice named Zeus (Samuel L. Jackson), a Harlem shopkeeper. Together they tear all over New York trying to head off disaster. Sure, it's all perfectly preposterous, but DIE HARD 3 has been directed with breathless intensity by John McTiernan, who certainly has a way with wrecking things. Was he very destructive as a child? Loved the spectacular subway crash, John. That hair-raising taxi ride through Central Park wasn't bad, either. Don't forget to fasten your seat belts for this ride.
