Title: Die Hard
Starring: Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Reginald VelJohnson
Synopsis: Ripped off countless times since its release as well as being the film that transformed Bruce Willis from TV comedy star to movie action hero, Die Hard is a quintessential action-thriller considered to be one of the best in the genre. Based on Roderick Thorp’s novel Nothing Lasts Forever, the 80s classic follows NYPD officer John McClane as he travels to Los Angeles on Christmas Eve in the hopes of reconciling with his estranged wife. However, the trip turns into another day on the job for McClane as he is forced to take on twelve terrorists who are holding a group of people at a Christmas party hostage (https://www.cmtrading.com) – including his wife – in order to keep police at bay while they perform a heist on the building. Gritty, exciting, and fun as all hell, Die Hard is a must-see whether you’re an action fan or not.
