John McClane and a young hacker join forces to take down master cyber-terrorist Thomas Gabriel in Washington D.C.
The opening scene between McClane and Lucy was filmed on the campus of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. The building that serves as Lucy's dormitory is actually Doheny Library.
Clay: I'm sending you the code.
Mai Lihn: Yes, I see that. Thank you.
There is no national power grid. The continental United States is divided into three main power grids: The Eastern Interconnect System, the Western Interconnect System, and the Texas Interconnect system, not eastern, western, and central as Farrell claims.
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.
