More Detail:

Bruce Willis plays John McClane once again in DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE. This time, he’s back in his native New York City chasing down a crafty bomber named Simon played by Jeremy Irons. Simon forces McClane to do unbelievable feats in order to prevent further explosions. For example, McClane must wear a sign with an unflattering remark against the Black community in Harlem. Zeus, played by Samuel L. Jackson, becomes a reluctant partner to McClane, as he rescues McClane from angry Harlem residents and joins him in foiling Simon and his genius plan to bomb the subway under the city treasury building to access tons of gold.

McClane and Zeus perform other daring do in this predictable, yet thrilling, third outing. The “villain with explosives” challenge merely retains attention, rather than keeping us in suspense. Though Willis and Jackson are adequate in their roles, they can’t manage to entertain without barraging us with equal amounts of gratuitous profanities and obscenities and ultra-violent acts. Though in the end the villain reaps what he sows, the sometimes gross and revolting means this film portrays in dealing with justice further reinforces the pagan notion that might makes right, rather than a merciful, omnipotent Creator.
