The Cougar HEV armored truck was portrayed by four replica vehicles: three custom vehicles made by the specialists of Team Szalay, built on chassis of military surplus 6-wheeled ZIL 131 trucks, and powered by Ural truck engines. The fourth replica used for jump stunts was made in the U.S. and was powered by a V10 Dodge Viper engine. See more »
While John and Jack held up at the Ball room by Alik with their hands tied, Jack cuts his way using the knife he had hidden in his socks. We see John jumping at Alik with his hands tied and in the next scene, his hands are untied and has got hold of a gun. See more »
In the first airport scene, she no longer drops her father off. The scene was reedited, in the last shot you can only see Bruce Willis getting out of the car, but you can't see any driver. You only hear voice sounding like Amaury Nolasco's character.
During the car chase in Moscow, she doesn't call McClane anymore. This time father and son can look at each other in the slow motion shot.
The end scene at the airport was cut, the movie ends with the aerial Chernobyl shot. Despite she's not in this version, her name still appears in the end credits.
I gave it a 3 to be nice because i'll always have a huge place in my heart for Die Hard, and just because i am loyal to the franchise i will probably buy this piece of junk on DVD when it comes out. Maybe when it comes out on DVD it'll be the extended edition ( seriously it was barely and hour and an a half long) and it'll actually have a story instead of just long drawn out action scenes, one-liners, and dialogue we can actually hear over the load background noise. I use to rank Die Harder as the worse of the franchise, guess who just moved up a step.
The only thing that this movie benefited the franchise is that John's son at the end actually mentions the fact that his name is actually John McClane Jr. not Jake ( in Die Hard (1988) his kids are named Lucy and John Jr.), But not actually explain the name change in the first place.
Much like when they took Oceans 12 to Europe and twisted Indiana Jones into confusing whirlwind that involved aliens, they should have just stayed in America where John McClane belongs. We got enough problems here he could fight.
