Die Hard

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Sun­day, 7mate, 8.30pm, M (1988)

As the hard­ened, wise-crack­ing cop on hol­i­day who bat­tles high-stakes ter­ror­ists who have seized con­trol of a mu lti­na­tional sky­scraper where his wife is among the hostages, Bruce Willis re­de­fined the ac­tion block­buster. Im­i­ta­tions fol­lowed, but none have lived up to the fire­cracker sus­pense and spe­cial ef­fects helmed by in­flu­en­tial di­rec­tor John McTier­nan (Preda­tor). And in the his­tory of bad guys, few have sneered as slyly as the late Alan Rick­man’s Hans Gru­ber. Re­live the ex­cite­ment – ac­tion doesn’t get much bet­ter.
