Die Hard with a Vengeance

(USA, 1995, 128 minutes)

Police officer John McClane is pitted up against a madman who has scattered bombs all over New York to hide his real target. The third adventure in this action series strives to recapture the freshness and fun of the original, but despite a clever script and many spectacular setpieces it still feels contrived and predictable. Good fun to watch, though, and as always impeccably done.
