It’s that time of year again! The Odyssey brings our annual screening of the much beloved Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful Li… wait no… It’s Die Hard!
Heavily armed terrorists have seized the Nakatomi tower building in LA, taken hostages and declared war but they haven’t counted on one thing, an off-duty cop who has been caught in the building. He’s alone, he’s tired and he’s the only chance anyone has.
Bruce Willis plays New York City detective John McClane, who has arrived in LA to spend the holiday with his estranged wife. But as her office Christmas party is overrun with terrorists and hostages are taken, he slips away unnoticed. Armed with only his wits and a service revolver, he wages a one man war and proves that he is harder to kill than they expected. Directed by John McTiernan and featuring a career defining performance by the late, great Alan Rickman as the terrorist Hans Gruber.
Die Hard is one of the greatest action films ever made and the ideal Christmas adventure to stuff your stocking with.
Merry Christmas, and a Yippee-Ki-Yay…
