Joining the rapidly swelling ranks of British actors portraying baddies in 1990s Hollywood movies, Jeremy Irons plays a mad bomber with a score to settle in this third instalment of the
series. He keeps Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson on their toes with a set of "Simple Simon" tasks that give a high-speed 20th-century labours-of-Hercules twist to the plot. Whether solving riddles and mathematical puzzles or hurtling through Central Park in a taxi cab, Jackson and Willis make a testy duo, trading quips and insults at a pace that matches the breathless and sometimes over-the-top action. Returning to the fray after missing the first sequel, John McTiernan directs with a gleeful disregard for narrative logic, especially in the closing stages. It's cracking entertainment, though.
New York cop John McClane returns to duty following an explosion at a department store in the city. The perpetrator contacts the police and tells them that unless McClane and an unfortunate bystander who was in the wrong place at the wrong time carry out a series of instructions to the letter, more bombs will be detonated. Action thriller sequel, starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L Jackson and Jeremy Irons.
