The review of this Movie prepared by Brian Sager

Bruce Willis returns as John McClane, who this time must foil a terrorist attempt to take control over an airport to rescue a druglord from being imprisoned. It's up to McClane to set things right, with the police chief (Dennis Franz) giving him nothing but grief and his wife (Bonnie Bedelia) trapped on board one of the 747 passenger planes unable to land and slowly running out of fuel.
