PG-13 | | Action, Thriller
John McClane and a young hacker join forces to take down master cyber-terrorist Thomas Gabriel in Washington D.C.
While in early development with a script that was eventually discarded, the movie had been given the subtitle "Tears of the Sun". Bruce Willis told the studio he would commit to a Die Hard 4 if he could use the title for Tears of the Sun (2003).
Clay: I'm sending you the code.
Mai Lihn: Yes, I see that. Thank you.
After McClane shoots the driver of the truck, it sounds like the truck is shifting a gear up. Since the driver has been shot, there would be no one to shift gears. Furthermore, immediately after McClane gets in, it's shifting up again, although McClane is not yet driving the truck.
After the 20th Century Fox opening logo has been on for a while, it suddenly "short circuits", causing flickering as the the searchlights fade, climaxing in a total power outage.
The unrated DVD (also known as the Ultimate Action Edition in some territories) contains frequent use of strong profanity and stronger violence (bullet hits are more graphically seen with blood spraying out). Also, McClane's signature line is now heard in full, as the gunshot does not obscure the latter part of it.
