Movie Madness Monday 4

Welcome back.

Die Hard

I have to say that this movie is something that I knew I would like from the bits and pieces that I have seen over the years.  Honestly, I was 3 when the movie opened and prior to this view was a part of the cable edited version.  So no swear words.  Anyway, one night when I should have gone to bed, I that one of the cable channels was airing the movie.  I figured why not and started to watch.

The movie opens with John McClain, a police officer in New York, flying to LA to be with his estranged family for Christmas.  His wife Holly moved to LA to pursue her advancing career and John chose not to follow.  Upon arriving John is taken to his wife's office as a surprise, but the surprise is on everyone when a group of international criminals come in and take siege over the building.  One man is forced to taken on mercenaries, intrepid police and FBI to save lives.

I loved the movie, which is not surprising since I generally like loud action movies.  It was almost refreshing to see an R rate movie with just violence and no gratuitous naked bodies/love scenes. Anyway, Hans Gruber was an amazing villain and who doesn't love Alan Rickman (that hair was fabulous!)

All I have to say is Yippee-Ki-Yay....
