After the terrifying events in LA, John McClane (Willis) is about to go through it all again. A team of terrorists, led by Col. Stuart (Sadler) is holding the entire airport hostage. The terrorists are planning to rescue a drug lord from justice. In order to do so, they have seized control of all electrical equipment affecting all planes. With no runway lights available, all aircraft have to remain in the air, with fuel running low, McClane will need to be fast.
|nudity||Male buttocks visible briefly in dim room.|
|violence||Lots of shooting. People are shot in the head, chest, shoulder, and leg with frequency. Bloody bullet holes (mostly ungraphic, although there is one instance of a very bloody wound) and tiny amounts of blood spray is sometimes shown. A few people are shot at point blank, one in the head. A man has his head crushed by a conveyor belt. This actual impact is not seen but it is strongly implied. A very large, tall, and heavy shelf falls on top of a man. Intense. McClane stabs a terrorist in the eye with an icicle. We see a brief closeup of the ice protruding from his eye socket with some blood. A man's throat is slit. We see a bloody gash on his neck. Blood briefly pumps from the wound. A man is sucked into the turbine of a plane. We don't see him go in, but we see thick blood, splatter on the side of the plane. Many people are killed in plane explosions. One is caused by a crash that the villainous mercenaries deliberately engineer to show that they are serious about their demands. Plenty of hand-to-hand combat that include headbutts, repeated heavy punches, and kicks. An irresponsible report aboard one of the planes sends a sensationalistic report to the media, causing a panic at the airport the staff dearly wanted to avoid. A heroine shocks him with a stun gun to shut him up.|
|profanity||38 uses of f**k and motherf**ker. One use of c**ksucker. Many uses of moderate and mild bad language (son of a b*tch, sh*t, a**, a**hole, pissing, crap, hell, damn, goddamn, Jesus, and Christ).|
|alcohol||Some characters are seen smoking cigarettes and drinking wine.|
|frightening||The movie is about terrorists attacking an airport and crashing planes. In one scene, a plane full of innocent people crashes and explodes as a result of the main terrorists shutting off the runway lights and sending false electronic navigational information to the pilots. This may disturb or upset some viewers. BBFC (UK) - Rated 15 (strong language, bloody violence). Recommended Rating: R for strong graphic violence including some disturbing images, pervasive strong language, some nudity and a brief crude comment|
