Die Harder

Off-duty cop John McClane is gripped with a feeling of déjà vu when, on a snowy Christmas Eve in the nation’s capital, terrorists seize a major international airport, holding thousands of holiday travelers hostage. Renegade military commandos led by a murderous rogue officer plot to rescue a drug lord from justice and are prepared for every contingency except one: McClane’s smart-mouthed heroics.

Det. Lt. John McClane wartet am Dulles Airport in Washington D.C. auf seine Frau Holly, die mit einem Flieger aus Los Angeles anreist, um mit ihm Weihnachten zu verbringen. Das Wetter ist miserabel: Schneestürme. Aber die meteorologischen Widrigkeiten sind nicht der Grund dafür, dass Hollys Maschine in der Luft bleiben muss. Der südamerikanische Drogen-Boss und Diktator Esperanza soll zur gleichen Zeit an die US-Behörden ausgeliefert werden. Aber Esperanza hat seine Flucht längst penibel vorbereitet. Unter Führung des ehemaligen Colonels Stuart, der inzwischen als Terrorist arbeitet, hat eine Spezialtruppe den Flughafen in ihre Gewalt gebracht. Die Kämpfer kontrollieren auch den Funkverkehr und die Computerzentrale, um Esperanza zur Flucht verhelfen zu können. Einmal mehr muss McClane als Einmann-Spezialeinheit die Lage bereinigen.

L’inspecteur de police McClane attend que l’avion de son épouse atterrisse dans un aéroport international proche de Washington. D’étranges allées et venues attirent son attention. Il suit des hommes qui communiquent discrètement entre eux jusqu’au sous‐sol de l’aéroport. Là, des inconnus lui tirent dessus et des mercenaires prennent le contrôle de l’aéroport, coupant toute communication avec l’extérieur. Les passagers des avions prêts à atterrir, dont la femme de McClane, n’ont plus que cinquante‐huit minutes pour vivre !
