    Synopsis:
    High above the city of LA, a team of terrorists has seized a building, taken hostages, and declared war. But one man has managed to escape detection... an off-duty cop. He`s alone and tired, and the only chance anyone has.

    Bruce Willis stars as New York City Detective John McClane, newly arrived in Los Angeles to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia). But as McClane waits for his wife`s office party to break-up, terrorists seize control of the building.

    While the terrorist leader, Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) and his savage henchman (Alexander Godunov) round up hostages, McClane slips away unnoticed. Armed with only a service revolver and his wits, McClane launches his own one-man war. A crackling thriller from beginning to end, `Die Hard` explodes with heartstopping suspense.
