Die Hard 2

So, taking the famous concept of using a character from a well-loved film and then plonking them in the middle of something that shares almost no DNA with the original is what’s happened here. Less of a slightly-above-average-Joe pushed by circumstance into a perilous situation, and more of a one-man-wrecking-ball. It’s like John McClane wants to be in a different film to everyone else here. I was amused by the notion of Colm Meaney playing a British pilot though. And John Amos playing a special forces major, rather than selling crap hamburgers. Undoubtedly the most interesting thing that’s ever happened at Washington Dulles though. 👎
