John McClane and a Harlem store owner are targeted by German terrorist Simon in New York City, where he plans to rob the Federal Reserve Building.
Originally titled "Simon Says" (where Zeus was scripted as a woman) and was considered by Joel Silver as the third sequel to Lethal Weapon (1987). Twentieth Century Fox, however, did not agree to sell the script to Joel Silver.
Federal Reserve Guard #2: Yes, call the police, get your ass down here right now! I'm under attack!
Mischa: Hey, just relax mate, maybe you'll live through this.
Simon Gruber: I think he's dead, my dear.
When the Mercedes rolls, it is possible to see on the upper right hand side of the screen the wire which pulls the car over.
TV version aired on FX (as of May 2002) removes a few more elements: the blood in the elevator and when the guard is knifed are missing, all the language is filtered, the placard reads 'I Hate People', while also missing are two catch phrases--Zeus: "Are you aiming for these people?" McClane: "No! Well, maybe that mime..." and where McClane asks Zeus if the car has anti-lock brakes before pulling the fuses (in this version he simply cranks the car hard and it turns hard, sliding backward).
