John McClane is an off-duty cop 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.

Fewer and fewer movies are being shot on genuine film, because fewer and fewer theaters have film projectors. Until there is an art house cinema nearby, any watching of older, or less well-known, films, on actual film, is pretty much impossible. What is the last time that an more aged or obscure film was available at the local multi-theater megaplex? If whoever has a film copy of that older, unknown film, does not think it is profitable enough to put it on DVD, there is little that can be done about it. Soon, the only way to look at films of any kind, will be through on-line streaming. Depending on your point of view, this is possibly that natural progression of technology, or it's the end of the world.

Great fun re-watching this after checking out the original for the first time. One of the very best filmic franchises out there, to be sure.
