Summer Movie: Die Hard

JCU Library has a great collection of films! You can find them in 791.4372.

There has been quite a bit of internet debate about whether or not Die Hard can be considered a Christmas movie, the arguments are a bit flimsy but no one can deny that the movie is considered to be one of the greatest action movies of all time. Nominated for 4 Academy Awards, Die Hard was ranked number 29 in Empire Magazine's 500 Greatest Movies of All Time.

What it's about:

New York City policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) is visiting his estranged wife and two daughters on Christmas Eve. He joins her at a holiday party in the headquarters of the Japanese-owned business she works for. But the festivities are interrupted by a group of terrorists who take over the exclusive high-rise, and everyone in it. Very soon McClane realizes that there's no one to save the hostages -- but him.
