The unrated DVD (also known as the Ultimate Action Edition in some territories) contains frequent use of strong profanity and stronger violence (bullet hits are more graphically seen with blood spraying out). Also, McClane's signature line is now heard in full, as the gunshot does not obscure the latter part of it. See more »
A hi-tech thriller with supercharged action and moving pacing , in which McClane confronts a terrorist mastermind
This following squeaked by on the same formula with John McClane saving the country from ominous terrorists . Passable sequel in which John McClain has to fight some nasties attempting to take over USA . McClane's gone , the famous Hollywood's action man in seeming vulnerable at the same time as being invincible . Thriller with frenetic action and unstoppable developing in fits and starts by the craftsman by Len Wiseman . Gripping , moving action movie with the great Bruce Willis desperately trying to find the means avoid a world catastrophe , as the country is being taken over by a sadistic smoothie and his ruthless henchmen . This mindless, interesting and ingenious film is packed with thrills , suspense , tension and lots of interminable action . Again John McClane , officer of the NYPD and hero of the Nakatomi Hostage Crisis, attempts to avert a disaster in Washington , packing adrenalin-inducing action scenes staging the murderous mayhem and state-of-the-art violence . Once again he is in the wrong place at the wrong time , as John McClane and a young hacker (Justin Long) join forces to take down master cyber-terrorist Thomas Gabriel (Timothy Olyphant) and hoodlums (Maggie Q, Cyril Raffaelli) in Washington D.C. , but the latter has only one little problem: John McClane (Bruce Willis).
This sequel offering slam-bang entertainment also contains lots of noisy action , thrills , explosions , twists , turns and lots of fun . Decent follow-up that continues in a similar style , humor and action . From start to finish the action-packed is unstopped , breathtaking and spectacular . Nail-biting screenplay that dispenses absurd excitement as well as amusement . Acceptable and big-budgeted thriller full of intrigue and tense , this is a fast-paced, stylized action-suspense film . The tension of this picture keeps snowballing as the clock ticks ever close for a groundbreaking as well as impressive final . As always , Bruce Willis is very fine as hilarious , sarcastic and intrepid old cop . Yet again humble detective McClane stumbles into a terrorist plot and he must save the day single-handedly . His kind of self-referential irony stopping just short of full-blown saves the movie . Willis transformed by his former experiences into a more traditional action Superman , it is left to sidekick Justin Long play the vulnerable part . Both of whom giving entertainment and providing good moments and incidental pleasure of watching two disparate roles . Apart from that , there is little originality or wit on offer , just the familiar escalation of car pursuits , crashes , destruction , blowing up and big bangs . They are well accompanied by fine secondary characters . As casting is frankly well , such as : Mary Elizabeth Winstead , Maggie Q , Kevin Smith , Andrew Friedman , Cliff Curtis , Cyril Raffaelli , Chris Palermo , Sung Kang , Zeljko Ivanek and Timothy Olyphant takes honors as psychopath who attempts to turn the tables on the protagonist . Adequate and thrilling musical score accompanying the action by Marco Beltrani . Inventively photographed by Simon Duggan ; most of scenes were shot in Washington, District of Columbia . Nice camera work , in fact cameraman seems he were born with a camera in one hand and a rocker launcher in the other . This motion picture was lavishly produced, and being professionally directed by Len Wiseman .However , the filmmaker fails to bring out the necessary tension betweem the terrorist team and the brave John McClain , but more than compensates in timing , utter volume and speed
